Mustang Brewing Company’s brand new tasting room opened Friday for the first time since sampling beer became legal in November. Company President Tim Schoelen says the event was not only a momentous legal occasion; it was also a great way to celebrate Mustang’s move into a new brewhouse after the May tornado. Schoelen says Mustang resumes full-scale commercial production in their new home in 2014 with a new series of craft beers. Mustang also continues its collaborative relationship with the band Hanson and their MMMHops line of brews.

The local Elk City Daily News says the "practice run for new sonar technology at Foss Lake became a recovery effort after officials discovered two vehicles submerged near the marina — with human remains inside."
