Hand crafting vivid, progressive beers in Oklahoma City.
Stonecloud Brewing Company was started by Joel Irby with the goal of bringing bold,
progressive, neo-American beer styles to Oklahoma. Irby, a Stillwater, OK native, had
been working in the professional brewing industry in Colorado for 9 years before
making the move back to Oklahoma to bring Stonecloud into reality. His background
as a brewer at the highly respected Avery Brewing Company makes him uniquely skilled
to bring the beers that we are so passionate about to life. At Stonecloud, we only
brew beers that excite us. Expect big juicy hop bombs, experimental barrel aged sours,
and anything else that tickles our fancy.
The Name Stonecloud
Stonecloud was an inspiration brought on by the mountains of Colorado. During the 14 years
that Joel lived in Colorado he spent hundreds of days climbing in the mountains.
Every once in a while he would come across one of those great endless views, composed of
layer upon layer of mountains, which eventually dissolved into the clouds on the horizon. These
stone clouds gave us our name and continue to inspire our sense of adventure and quest
for new beer experiences.
