Twisted Spike Brewing unveils new logo

Work is moving ahead on Oklahoma City's newest craft brewery, Twisted Spike Brewing, located on NW 10 near Broadway in Automobile Alley.

Brewery founder and brewmaster Bruce Sanchez reports that permits for the building were approved by the Oklahoma City council on Sept. 29, and his lease went into effect on Oct. 1.

Shortly after that, it was time to begin demolition on the inside of the building:

Sanchez reports that demolition will take quite some time. It's a process being carried out primarily by Sanchez himself, along with friends, family and investors.

While all that is going on, some other work is being done as well, particularly in branding for the new brewery.

This week, Twisted Spike unveiled its new logo and color scheme:


And also an alternate, text-centric version:

Sanchez earlier explaind on this blog the idea behing the railroad-spike theme. You can read about that here.

I'll keep you up to date as Twisted Spike moves forward in the development process, but as of right now, it appears things are full steam ahead for the Oklahoma City business.
