Work Progressing On Tulsa's Newest Brewery

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Coming this fall, there will be a sixth brewery open for business between Tulsa's Pearl District and the Kendall Whittier Neighborhood.  

The Cabin Boys Brewery is located at 7th and Utica.  It is run by a group of Tulsans who are all about serving the community.

Thousands of square feet of what use to be body shop is being transformed into the Cabin Boys Brewery by Austin McIlroy, Ryan Arnold and Lisa McIlroy.  Ryan has the entrepreneurial background, Lisa is a trained artist, and Austin is a master brewer.

Their first location choice in Catoosa didn't work out.

"And then we were on the hunt, and we found this building," Arnold said.

They say it's perfect.

"Never opening a brewery before - there's gonna be some mistakes, and every day we are learning something new," said Lisa McIlroy. "We might be this kind of rustic-sounding company, but we will have our own modern flare on it and that is going to reflect through the art work."

Master brewer Austin McIlroy said they'll focus on brewing with different spices and fruits. He said now is the time to open, with the state liquor laws shifting.

"Oklahoma is the last frontier of the craft beer industry, so there is a little bit of risk opening a brewery in Tulsa," he said.

But no risk - no reward. That is evident from the other breweries under construction just blocks from them. Cabin Boys will open alongside other new breweries, Renaissance at 12th and Lewis and Heirloom Rustic Ales on East Admiral.

"The social culture is changing its different now and cool to be part of the change," Austin said.

Expect a soft opening by the end of September with the official opening set for sometime in October.
