Oklahoma City has rapidly emerged as a hub for craft beer enthusiasts, boasting a diverse and vibrant brewery scene that caters to a wide range of tastes and preferences. Embark on a flavorful journey through the breweries that have taken OKC by storm.

Start your tour in Automobile Alley at Skydance Brewing Co., a Native American-owned microbrewery. Skydance celebrates their heritage through the art and stories they tell on the branding and packaging of their products. Fancy Dance, a dry-hopped hazy IPA, is a must try! 

Walk a block over to Prairie Artisan Ales for a delicious Rainbow Sherbet or the Prairie BOMB, a stout known around the world! Just a few blocks to the west is Vanessa House Beer Company. Their top seller is the 401(k) Cream Ale, named after the owner’s experience of putting their own retirement funds to create the beer – which paid off! 

The next brewery is located in Bricktown. Pop into Bricktown Brewery and try the Blues Berry Ale fruit beer. Bricktown Brewery is a traditional American brewpub, offering some of the best handcrafted, local beers around.  

Afterwards, stop at one of OKC’s most popular taprooms, Stonecloud Brewing, located in the beautiful, historic Sunshine Laundry building. Order the Neon Sunshine, a Belgian Wit and crowd favorite. Make a stop at Fair-Weather Friend Brewery for the Northern Flicker and delicious wood oven pizza. 

Angry Scotsman Brewing offers several different styles of beer. A local favorite is the Gateway to Helles, a light, German-style lager. They have a large patio with lawn games, making it a great brewery to visit with family and friends. You can’t beat the view of downtown from their patio! Cross Oklahoma City Blvd. to Lively Beerworks for their Indian Pale Ale. They often host fun events like comedy and art shows, trivia and karaoke. 

Next, stop at Anthem Brewing, one of Oklahoma’s original craft breweries and one of the largest taprooms in the metro.

Lastly, check out the nationally acclaimed brewery, The Big Friendly, located in the Wheeler District. This one is a bit out of the way, but this 2022 and 2023 American Beer Festival Brewery of the Year is well worth the trip. There’s a spacious patio and a playground for kids to play while you enjoy one of their pilsners or lagers that are always in rotation. If you can’t make it to the taproom, you might catch their mobile bus at a local event or festival.
