"Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from POLE TO POLE. I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul" W.E. Henley The poem "Invictus" gave us the inspration to begin a new series of Coffee Porters and you are drinking #1! While scouring the globe from pole to pole to find the freshest and most tasty coffee beans to add to our brew, we chose to flavor this installation in the style of a SALTED CARAMEL LATTE to celebrate the first day of Autumn. Happy Hoodie Weather!

Brewery, Coffee, Food

Colony is many things. We are a brewery, 3rd wave coffee shop, and kitchen.

Colony recently opened up a venue called The Rino which is connected to our current space. Features local music and bands touring around the country. A few nights a week, Colony charges a cover to experience the live music going on. Please check The Rino's schedule to see if there is a cover. (http://www.therinokc.com)

As a family owned and operated establishment we pride ourselves on emphasizing local culture and supporting other small businesses.


Colony Handcrafted Ales specializes in small batch uncommon ales. We brew different beers daily. Instead of focusing on yearly flagship beers, we mix things up and do a lot of fun experimenting.
