ABOUT CABIN BOYS BREWERY: It all started with a cabin in the woods. In 2010, Jeff McIlroy had an idea to build a log cabin on his property in Catoosa, OK. After recruiting his son, Austin, many other friends and family jumped on board in building the cabin from the ground up. Using lumber they milled themselves from the surrounding forest and other local resources, the cabin was born. Just a short trek through the woods, and you can find an escape from the daily hustle and bustle of life. From weddings to reunions, people experienced camaraderie with thoughtful conversations, good beers, and great memories. This fellowship inspired our brewery’s brand, becoming our signature icon. With the help of family and friends, we built a cabin. With the help of the community, we’re building our brewery.
Austin began home brewing after his wife Lisa convinced him he needed a hobby. His home brewed ales became a centerpiece of laughter, joy, and togetherness amongst friends and family. The hobby quickly sparked into a passion for the craft beer industry, and the wild idea of opening a brewery was born. Recognizing his potential, Jeff sent Austin to the World Brewing Academy in Chicago, IL and Munich, Germany to give him commercial level brewing education. While in Munich, Lisa, designed the Cabin Boys brand and a partnership and business plan was put into motion. Taking inspiration from the European beer culture, and using the Cabin’s story as their foundation, there was a desire to create a space and a product that could bring people together. That’s why their beers are “crafted for community.”
Returning to Tulsa, we found the home for our brewery in our 9,000 sq ft building on the corner of 7th and Utica. We strive to make quality-driven ales in the traditional styles, but with our own splash of creativity. These strong and bold ales have delivered a sense of community for hundreds of years, and we as a company strive to be a part of that tradition.

ABOUT FACILITATOR, ELIZABETH HENLEY: Elizabeth Henley is a painter and multimedia artist from Tulsa, Oklahoma. While living and working in Tulsa, she also attended several schools, including studying Interior Design at Oklahoma State University. After several color theory and art classes, she realized her main passion was creating artwork through visual art. She began displaying her work publicly in 2015, but then refocused her pursuits to finding space in her local art scene for artists of color, specifically Black Artists in the Tulsa area. This desire to see inclusion and diversity in art led her to found and create Black Moon in 2018, an all Black artist collective here in Tulsa focused on breaking standards, pushing innovation, and cultivating creativity among her local community. With the formation of Black Moon, Elizabeth and fellow artists have shown in several galleries and exhibitions throughout the Oklahoma area. Her goal is to grow and develop her skills as an artist, but to also show representation through diversity in her pieces.
