The Kraus family came to Sedona in 1993 with all their worldly goods and a dream, to brew great fresh beer the way Fred learned at the Gasthausbrauerei Hufeisen, or Horseshoe Brewery, in the picturesque village of Pottenstein, Germany. The dream became reality when they opened the doors of Oak Creek Brewing Co. in west Sedona.
Since February 1995 Sedona’s only Microbrewery has been known to locals and tourists alike as the place to enjoy delicious handcrafted brews in a relaxed, unique setting. In 2000 Fred Kraus, our brewmaster, decided to combine his brewing skills with his partners food industry skills, to open Sedona’s only brew pub. Our premium beers are brewed on site in the copper brewing tanks behind the beautiful oak bar. Our display kitchen houses the rotisserie and wood fired oven used to prepare the house specialties, 'Rotisserie Chicken and Pork Ribs', and 'Fire Kissed Pizzas'. Our beer and food are offered to you in a setting intended to make your experience fun with just a dash of old world charm.
