Telling our story through our craft

Skydance Beer Lineup

Good beer brings good people together...

Skydance Brewing Company is Oklahoma’s Native American owned craft brewery. Our indigenous culture has taught us the importance of community. Therefore, we have taken on the important job of brewing great beer to be used as a tool for bringing people together.  We celebrate our heritage through the art of our craft and the stories we tell in our branding and packaging. Oklahoma is steeped in Native American tradition and we take pride in the opportunity we have to use the power of entrepreneurship to have a lasting social impact on our Oklahoma and American Indian communities.

Belgian Style wheat beer

Mahaska, or White Cloud, was a leader of the Ioway People during a difficult time in the early 1800’s. This Belgian Style Wheat Beer is named in his honor. We brewed White Cloud with coriander and orange peel, then added orange zest after fermentation to create a unique freshness to the complex flavor profile.

Hazy india pale ale

Fancy Dance is a juicy, hazy, fruity New England Style IPA and is brewed as a tribute to the most popular style of Native American dance seen at modern day pow wows. This heavily dry hopped hazy IPA showcases Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops bringing a huge punch of citrus and tropical fruit flavors to your pallet.

Session India pale ale

Lighthorse IPA is a hazy, juicy and fruity session style IPA. At 5.1% ABV, this triple dry hopped beer is easy drinking and packed with hoppy goodness while leaving you with the ability to drink a few more. This beer is all about the hops. We used Simcoe, Comet and showcased an old favorite, Amarillo, in the dry hop.

Amber Ale

A well balanced, smooth, medium bodied ale, Mosquito Hawk is a reliable choice to blend with any meal. A combination of Victory and Munich malts give this beer a distinct biscuit and nutty characteristic. Flaked oats are used to add even more mouthfeel. Amarillo hops bring a nice blend of orange citrus notes to a beer that hasn't changed since our homebrewing days.

American Blonde Ale

Rez Dog is a crisp and refreshing American Blonde Ale brewed entirely with Pilsner malt and hopped with Cascade and Hallertau. The heavy dose of Hallertau in the dry-hop gives this beer a distinct Pilsner-like flavor and aroma despite being fermented with our ale yeast.

Oatmeal Stout

The 49 is our take on a classic style. Brewed with flaked oats for a creamy full body, roasted barley for a slightly roasted coffee flavor and pale chocolate malt for that smooth chocolate taste. The 49 is named after our late night parties usually held in a secret location after powwows. This recipe originated with our founders late father and the story behind it became the inspiration for launching Skydance Brewing Co.
