Skydance Brewing Company in Oklahoma City is unique and culturally significant as the only Native American-owned craft brewery in the city. The taproom features artwork from Native American artists, while the brewery is well known for IPAs, which they claim are the best in Oklahoma. In addition to the core lineup, Skydance Brewing Company releases a new beer and can design every Friday, drawing in crowds eager to try their latest creations.

Frenzy Brewing Company

As the first brewery in Edmond city limits, Frenzy Brewing Company sets itself apart by creating a diverse mix of beer that stays up with the trends while also remaining approachable for their customers. Their flagship beer, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah ‘Cause I’m A Blonde, is a homebrew recipe that won numerous gold medals in competitions. Bri also tasted their German-style pilsner, a refreshing lime light lager called #Lakelife, a peach wheat American wheat called Quitcherpeachin, and a unique milkshake IPA with peach, vanilla, and lactose. Frenzy’s beer is perfect for any occasion, from casual drinking to poolside sipping.

Vanessa House Beer Company

With a focus on nostalgic, pop culture-inspired beers, Vanessa House offers something for everyone. Unlike other breweries, they don’t specialize in one thing – they brew whatever sounds exciting to them at the time. And with beers like the classic 401K cream ale, the year-round favorite Awkward Encounters dark lager, the popular Tracer Hazy IPA, and the exclusive, unfermented fruit sour Passion Pits, you’ll surely find something you love. Plus, Vanessa House has a tap room where you can come and experience their beer for yourself.

Legally Brewed

Known for their candy sours and unique infused creations, Legally Brewed in Norman also boasts an event venue. But it’s the beers that steal the show, from the Disco Lemonade to the American Pie sour that tastes just like its namesake. And for those who like a little kick, the Nolo chili lime ale won’t disappoint. Take advantage of the Instagram-worthy Starry Night seltzer infused with butterfly pea flowers and edible glitter. Head to Legally Brewed for a unique and flavorful experience.
