Bri from Oklahoma’s Credit Union takes us to visit local breweries for International Beer Day as we feature Skydance Brewing Co., Frenzy Brewing Company, Vanessa House Beer Company, and Legally Brewed.

Skydance Brewing Company

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.

Creative Burgers: Vol. 4

New episode of Creative Burgers with Justin Coleman and Undrell Maholmes! We visited BlueJ’s Rockin’ & Rollin’ Grill for a rockin’ spicy burger and a wow-worthy chicken Parmesan sandwich; Rice N Buns for burger buns made of rice and ramen; and Bar Arbolada, where Alton Brown said they “have the best double cheeseburger in America.”

You may notice that there are two camera operators with Lessa Keller-Kenton working with me as the wide camera operator. I’ve put what I’ve learned from past burger episodes and produced a great episode, improving audio quality, image style, and pacing from the previous installment. Lessa and I have also worked together on Take A Bite with Phi.

Norman, OKC, and Edmond Farmers Markets

We traveled to the three largest farmers’ markets in the Oklahoma City Metro area in this episode of Uncovering Oklahoma. We start with The Norman Farm Market in Downtown Norman at the new The Well building where Lessa interviews some of the vendors there. Next, we travel to Oklahoma City to visit the Scissortail Park Farmers Market. We then end the day at the Edmond Farmers Market.

We hope you enjoy this episode of us visiting these fantastic farmers’ markets. While we couldn’t visit every single market, we do encourage you to check out your local markets.

Miracle on Boulevard

For Uncovering Oklahoma, I visited the holiday pop-up bar, Miracle on Boulevard, where people can enjoy food and cocktails in a festive setting.

For reservations and more information, visit their website at and visit them inside Jack Rabbit Slims at 3325 South Boulevard, Suite 175, in Edmond.

State Fair Food Substitutions Vol. 1

In light of the State Fair not happening this year, I visited three different places for fair-inspired food. First up for appetizers there’s the Okie Twinkies from Eddie’s in Edmond, then a turkey leg where the meat slides off the bone from Big O’s Pork and Dreams in Emond, and I end the video with dessert from Contrabandz Ice Cream Lab.

My goal was to have five different places for this collection, but schedules didn’t work out, so I still hope you enjoy this episode! I was hoping to including Philly Home Flaming Hot Cheetos Philly, Mighty Corn Dog, and The Catfish Bayou. I also had a friend comment on the video that FireLake Fry Bread Taco in Shawnee makes the best, best, best Indian tacos.
