Over 30 Years of Brewing Experience!
We’re located in the NW side of OKC, right off Route 66! Our master brewer, Mike Groshong, has been commercial brewing for nearly 30 years bringing lots of experience and some very tasty beers to the Oklahoma City Craft beer scene!
GO ALL IN!
That’s our core belief here at Broke Brewing Co. We are all in on quality, taste and local experience. We love beer, creating pints from the classic pub beers to the freestyles of American craft brews. That is the spirit embodied in our beer and we invite you to pick up the torch yourself and Go For Broke!
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Beer has brought people together the world over and beer styles are as diverse as our cultures. We embrace these traditions and brew up some tasty classic beers enjoyed around the world. American craft brewers have blown the lid off the keg in respect to what beer is and what is possible, we also enjoy crafting those mild to wild styles that you will find rotating through the taps. You’ll find British and Belgian ales, blondes to extra stouts, lagers and saisons, bi-coastal IPAs and everything in between.
Besides craft beer, we offer a hand picked selection of wine and non alcoholic beverages for family and designated drivers.
THE TAP ROOM
Our mid-century modern taproom is sophisticated, comfortable and relaxing. Inspired by our favorite elements from the art deco era and Madmen style of the 60s and 70s to create the ultimate afterwork recharging spot. There is a groovy mood here from our handcrafted, longboard inspired wood bar and the thumpin audio system to the changing artwork and period lighting, you’ll find a great spot to enjoy your favorite beer style.
WHAT IS BROKE BREWING CO.
Broke Brewing Company became more than just an idea in the spring of 2018. Excited by the possibilities afforded by the upcoming law changes and the prospect for our brewmaster to strike out on his own, the plans were made.
Breweries, for those that are unaware, involve a lot of coordination to navigate the complex set of rules and regulations placed on the industry by Federal, State and local regulations. These factors plus the time and resources required makes a formidable barrier to entry into the industry. Every brewery that opens their doors should be duly applauded, and thankful to the helpful community of brewers that helped make the way easier for others to follow.
We made our plans and set forth down the path! At this stage we weren’t yet Broke (hehe). During our first year into the project we found our chosen name wasn’t trade markable and an initial investor dropped out. If we continued without finding a replacement, we would be cutting our funding very close; we would be going for Broke… DING DING DING!!! It hit us there and then, that Broke Brewing perfectly embodied the spirit of our venture! One shot to make it or break it meant we would be brewing or bust. This became our rallying cry and is what we lean on when times get tough and the going isn’t easy. Go for Broke. That’s what we do here and what we are about. We hope that we can inspire others to follow ours, and the many other entrepreneurs in this industry’s footsteps in whatever direction they lead you in!

“Branding a brewery is probably every designers dream”
– Diana regarding Broke Brewing, where she feels she got the opportunity of a lifetime.
The inspiration behind the Broke Brewing logo design was inspired by mid century design, money and of course hops! If you catch her when she’s feeling social, she might tell you even more about the other hidden details within the branding.
