Mt Fork Brewing Co LLC was established in 2015 here in Hochatown, Oklahoma, and is owned by CKM Investments. CKM Investments is owned by Chuck Wilson, Keith Shearer, and Mark McDaniel and is involved in land development in the area.
Originally located a couple of doors down in the same shopping center, they quickly realized that the popularity of their beer had quickly outgrown their brewery. So, they began construction on a new brewery next door and upgraded from a 2-barrel system to a 20-barrel system and paired that with five 40-barrel fermenters and one 60-barrel fermenter. The second production facility began operations in 2018 and was built with an attached restaurant focusing on hand-tossed brick oven pizzas, and freshly
ground burgers, but also includes salads, sandwiches, and various fried appetizers. To please the ever-increasing tourism in the area we also offer local wines and spirits. Including Knotted Rope, the winery that took over the old brewery location utilizing most of the old equipment, and Hochatown Distillery located across the parking lot.
We have since grown to produce just under 2000 barrels a year with plenty of space to grow more. We have won 14 medals at the Oklahoma Craft Beer Awards in their 2 years of competition (2020 & 2022, not held in 2021 due to Covid). This year we have begun to enter nationwide competitions and hope to add to our collection.
Our saying is “From a good source comes good beer” because we source our water from the pristine Mountain Fork River. Our goal is to produce easy drinking creatively crafted beer with you in mind as we try to produce excellent representations of beer styles being true to the style guidelines.
We have a core of nine beers. Our flagship beer is the Sneaky Snake, which is a Belgian Golden Ale. We also have a limited release of a variant called Black Label Sneaky Snake which is everything the Sneaky Snake is but just a little more. Other beers include: Mountain Fork Light, Three Rivers Blonde Ale, The Rooster (a Mexican-style ale), Timber Creek Amber Ale, Hochawizen Wheat Ale (a hefeweizen), Gentleman Jackalope Hazy Indian Pale Ale, Crumpet English Brown Ale, and MFB 9.0 American Stout. The bar has 20 taps including seasonals and limited releases not found anywhere but the brewery.
