Oklahoma attorney general released the official opinion Tuesday afternoon concerning the direct sales and consumption of high-point beers for local brewers. 

Attorney General Scott Pruitt said after a legal review of Senate Bill 424, the "opinion upholds the original intent of the legislature, which was to permit craft brewers to sell high-point beer for consumption both on and off their premises."
