Starting this month, Oskar Blues Brewery will begin supplying the
custom-made distiller's wash for Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey, the
pioneering micro distiller located in Denver, Colorado.
Oskar Blues will craft about 3000 gallons of Stranahan's wash each week
in its Longmont facility. Stranahan's will purchase the wash and truck
it by food-grade tanker to its Denver distillery.
"This is a very big deal for us," says Oskar Blues founder Dale
Katechis. "Jess and his team are whiskey mavericks, they're
doing for whiskey what craft brewers have done for beer. They've proven
that with guts, talent and a blind eye to the status quo, one can make
whiskey as good as any out there."
