This is exactly what I predicted when SB424 was being talked about and put into place. Small, neighborhood taprooms in Oklahoma looking to fill a niche market that is growing nationally like wild fire. And we know a lot about wildfires here. Vortex Alley Brewing fits the nano brewery description with a planned 1.5 bbls scale production to serve in downtown Ponca City, OK slated for late summer/fall. Like so many other homebrewers I can't help but imagine they will usher in a new wave of microbreweries unlike anything we've seen in this state before. So, David Thomas and Spencer Boatmun sat down with me to help document why they thought this was the perfect idea to bring their hobby of a combined 33 years amongst their four members you in Oklahoma.
