Telling our story through our craft
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.
Meet The Brewer
Registered with the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma but also a descendant of the Osage Nation and Otoe-Missouria Tribe, Jake Keyes was raised in Little Axe by a single father with a knack for brewing. When Jake was a kid, he would get into his father’s brews – formulated with help from Charlie Papazian’s Joy of Homebrewing book – and try to add his own flair. Eventually, his father figured out what was happening to his batches and began educating his son on the art of brewing. After a decade long career in tribal gaming, Jake founded Oklahoma’s Native American Craft Brewery, Skydance Brewing Company, in late 2018. He is also the creator and host of his own podcast ‘Brewed with Hustle’; an entrepreneurship, business and leadership podcast and is a recipient of Native Business Magazine Top 50 Native Entrepreneurs.
