Brewery Spotlight: Oskar Blues Brewing

Oskar Blues Brewery is considered the pioneer in the "craft beer in can" revoloution. In 2002 they were the first US craft brewer to offer its own flagship beer (Dales Pale Ale) in cans, in fact the original crew used a hand-canning line on a table-top machine that sealed one can at a time. Today Oskar Blues brews over 59,000 barrels and are available in 25 states. As for that whole can thing...over 150 craft breweries are canning now their beer. Keep reading below for a bit on each one of their beers also swing by Redstone Liquors on Friday July 27th from 4-7pm to taste the lineup and to try some of their beer infused hot sauces. 

Dale's Pale Ale is Oskar Blues' first beer. It is somewhere between an American pale ale and an India Pale Ale brewed with European malts and American hops. Dale's Pale Ale started the American craft-beer-in-a-can movement. In 2005 Dale's Pale Ale was named "Best Pale Ale by the New York Times. Esquire magazine selected Dale's as one of the "Best Canned Beers to Drink Now" in a February, 2012 article.[1]Dale's is 6.5% alcohol by volume, and features 65 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

Old Chub is a Scotch ale brewed with seven different malts, including crystal and chocolate malts. Old Chub also gets a dash of beechwood-smoked grains imported from Bamburg, Germany. Old Chub is 8% alcohol by volume.Among other medals Old Chub won a bronze medal in the 2011 Great American Beer Festival Scotch Ale Category.

G'Knight is a hybrid version of strong ale, somewhere between an Imperial Red and a Double IPA. Oskar Blues makes it with six different malts and three types of hops, then dry-hopprd it with Amarillo hops. It is 8.7% alcohol by volume, and has 60 International Bittering Units. G'Knight is brewed in tribute to the late Gordon Knight. In addition to opening some of Colorado’s first microbreweries, Knight was a Vietnam vet and huge promoter of craft beer. He lost his life in 2002 while fighting a wild fire outside of Lyons, Colorado.

Ten FIDY Imperial Stout is Oskar Blues' seasonal beer with flavors of chocolate, malt, coffee, cocoa and oats. Ten FIDY is about 10% ABV and is made with two-row malts, chocolate malts, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. 98 IBUs 

Mama's Little Yella Pils is a small-batch pilsner. Mama’s is made with pale malt, German specialty malts, and traditional (Saaz) and 21st century Bavarian hops. It is also fermented at cool temperatures with a German yeast. 5.3% ABV and 35 IBUs. Mama's Little Yella Pils won a Silver Medal in the 2011 Great American Beer Festival Bohemian Style Pilsener Category. 

Gubna is an Imperial IPA and is made with 3 malts and Summit hops. Summit hops are also used for post-fermentation dry hopping. 10% ABV and 100 IBUs

Deviant Dale’s IPA (8% ABV, 85 IBUs) was born at the crossroads, in a juke joint, as if Dale’s Pale Ale sold its soul to balance Deviant’s foreboding aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind and piney resins with a copper ball-of-fire color and inscrutable finish. The 2011 GABF Silver Medal Winner (American IPA Category) is the Devil incarnate with untold amounts of malt and hedonistic Columbus dry-hopping. Oskar Blues’ southern spirit caught a northbound blues bus to ColoRADo to deliver the boundary bustin’ brewery’s first 16 oz. tallboy can.
