Vanessa House Beer Co. has officially moved into their new taproom and brewing facility on NW 8th street. We're excited to have our brew roots officially planted in OKC, and we look forward to spending even more time with the great beer fans of Oklahoma!
Vanessa House Beer Company is excited to offer The Broken Tile Double IPA year round. This New England Style DIPA delivers big on aroma with notes of pineapple, citrus, and grapefruit. All thanks to mosaic and citra hops. It is an unfiltered DIPA that sits soft on your palate and drinks smooth.
Like always this beer gets its a name from a good story. Did you ever have a roommate who destroys common property and won’t cop to it? Yeah, us too. He made the mistake of mixing wine, emotional distress and a bath. The result was several broken tiles and ten years of denials. Take our advice and just stick to a shower beer after a long day. #weknowwhatyoudid
The 401K Cream Ale is truly an American-style beer that represents the “give it your all” attitude of the American entrepreneurial spirit (considering the funds to create this beer came from the owner’s retirement accounts- no regrets!)
We used flaked corn to lighten the body, centennial hops to add floral and citrus notes to the aroma, and finish it with sweet orange peel, making it a crushable and a refreshing beer.
The Vanessa House crew will never forget our homebrewing roots. From the early days brewing on the kitchen stove, to that time we almost burned the garage down. When we first FIRED up our brand new brewing system, the blaze nearly went through the roof. The blaze left us with a strong respect for safety and a higher insurance premium. #safetyfirst
Actual conversation from an impromptu VHBC Road Trip to Denver at precisely 11:09 am. Zac - How close are we? Justin - What? Zac - How much longer until we are there? Justin - Oh hold on….400 miles. Zac - Ok, but how long? Justin - What? Zac - How much time until we are there? Justin – Oh, it’s 11:09. #notwhatweaskedfor
Who is Vanessa and why is everyone obsessed with her house? The distilled version is that its a house on Vanessa Drive in Norman, OK. It’s the house where 5 friends formed a lifetime bond and were first exposed to craft beer. We love it when new and old friends alike come together with a great beer in hand, so it only made sense to name our beer company after the Vanessa House.
Do you wanna meet someone who's awkward and loves beer? Meet Justin, aka, The Big Awkward. Justin was born and raised in Oklahoma and serves as co-owner and Taproom Manager at Vanessa House Beer Company. Brewing great beer with his four lifelong friends is his passion. He looks forward to delivering tasty brews and wowing you with his extensive Star Wars knowledge because his wife and dogs want him to make friends.
Andrew likes to drink his beer in the company of good friends, mainly because he was told drinking alone reading comic books makes him look sad. On a more serious note, Andrew was born and raised in Oklahoma and is now lucky enough to run a brewery with his four longtime friends. He heads up Sales and Marketing for Vanessa House Brewing Company, and looks forward to meeting new craft beer fans.
You ever have that friend that just annoys the whole group, but no one has the heart to tell them? Well imagine starting a business with them, because that’s how the rest of the crew feels about Zac. Raised in “God’s Country” (McLoud, Oklahoma), Zac enjoys telling the rest of the group that “this whole brewery thing is gonna backfire," and it's because of this cautious nature and business sense that he's the Chief Executive Officer of Vanessa House Brewing Company.
Born and raised in Denton, Texas, Nick came to Oklahoma in 2004 to pursue a degree in architecture at OU. After graduating, Nick remained in Oklahoma and began his career, met a girl, and started brewing craft beer with his boys. Years later Vanessa House Beer Company was formed, with Nick serving as head of Community Relations and Media.
Making the rest of the VHBC crew look good. That is Evan's primary role in the company. You may not see this hermit at any events because he is usually in bed or too grumpy at that late of an hour, but he enjoys working behind the scenes to get the beer ready for everyone to drink.
