GRAND OPENING OF STONECLOUD BREWING CO. SLATED FOR JULY 15TH
OKLAHOMA CITY – June 28, 2017 – Stonecloud Brewing Co., located in the Historic Sunshine Laundry & Cleaners building, is preparing to open its doors to the public. The much-anticipated new brewery will celebrate with special beers, customer appreciation promotions, and a full day of food and festivities.
On Saturday, July 15th, the brewery will open at noon with music from The Spy, local food trucks, and outdoor games and information from the Oklahoma City Parks and Recreations department. The first 100 customers to arrive at Stonecloud Brewing Co. will receive a free logo glass. For only $15 per plate, Smokin’ Okies food truck will be offering an over-the-top Pig Roast. Each food ticket purchased will enter guests into a raffle. Local pastry truck Holey Rollers will also be on site, featuring handcrafted doughnuts paired with Stonecloud beers.
Owner and Head Brewer Joel Irby is very excited for the opening of the brewery. “After 3 years of planning and preparation, it’s super exciting to see the project come to life. I’m very happy to finally get to serve some beer to Oklahoma City!”
Irby’s time working with Avery Brewing Co. in Colorado gave him a thorough education in brewing a top-notch product. “Quality and consistency is very important to me, but I still want to experiment and have fun. Making exceptional beer takes time, high quality ingredients, and knowledge, but creativity and innovation are what make the process exciting. We want to make great beer, have a great time doing it, and ensure that our guests have a great time drinking it.”
Just over a year ago, the Sunshine Laundry building wasn’t much to look at. Most of the roof was missing and trees and other plants had grown through the floors. His partners, Jonathon Dodson, Ben Sellers, and David Wanzer, helped Irby visualize what it could become.
“Working with Pivot Project and taking on the renovation of the Sunshine Laundry building was a huge task. Being a part of the revitalization of Downtown Oklahoma City is very important to me. I truly want to have an active role in the Oklahoma craft beer movement, as well as being involved with local businesses and organizations in the Oklahoma City community. That sense of working together and bonding is what really makes brewing a labor of love.”
