Our story

Skydance Brewing Company is Oklahoma's Native American craft brewery. Founded in 2018, Skydance is Oklahoma City's first brewery to be majority Native Owned. Our founder, CEO and head of brewing, Jake Keyes, is a citizen of the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma. In 2023 Jake was elected as the Chairman of the Iowa Tribe. Jake is also a descendent of The Osage Nation and The Otoe-Missouria Tribe. Our story begins when Jake learned to brew beer from his father at a very young age. That shared passion sparked a dream to open a brewery with his dad that would remain just a dream for decades. After the untimely death of his father, Jake realized we are never promised "tomorrow" and he became determined to chase that dream. Today Skydance is not only a fulfillment of that dream, but also serves as a source of representation for inspiring Indigenous entrepreneurs. Jake's Native American culture shapes everything the brewery does. In most cases, Skydance is the only Native American product on the shelves of the largest retailers in Oklahoma, including Walmart and other retail chains.
