Here at Vanessa House Beer Co., we are passionate about good beer and good times. Lucky for you, we work hard to make sure you get both when you visit our taproom!
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.
Our take on a traditional Mexican Cerveza. Clean, crisp, and smooth. Plus we added the salt and lime for you! The Destination Wedding is a crowd favorite, come try one today!
Who is the Candy King you might ask? We are sure to point you in the right direction. Candy King is our Berliner Weisse that is inspired by our favorite tart & sweet round candy. This beer is tart up front, and is balanced by a pleasant candied fruit character with notes of strawberry and vanilla!
Our newest collaboration with our pals at High Rise Extracts, we’re excited to introduce you to Paloma Cooler, our newest Slush Fund Seltzer! This seltzer is loaded with grapefruit, lime, and citrus. Drink it cold, drink it slow, this guy comes at 8% ABV! Come enjoy a pour in the taproom, or take a 4 pack home with you.
Welcoming in the season the proper way with our new imperial stout, Dark Whispers comes in at 14% ABV with notes of chocolate, honey, oak, and subtle spirit character that’ll have you asking for more!
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.
