November 2008 Update from Oskar Blues
Oskar Blues Adds Beer Ace, Tanks
made a couple big moves to keep up the supply and quality of our Oskar
Blues beers. We've just added Jeff Nickel to our team, he's a brewer
heavy who left his position at MolsonCoors to craft full-flavored brews
He's one of a very few brewers who have left the Very Big Leagues to
make hay in the small-batch craft beer world, we're thrilled to have
him join our team. He brings gallons of expertise, knowledge and great
reputation to our team, he'll oversee production for us.
We've also added five 100-barrel fermenters to our Longmont facility to
boost our capacity by over
These will go a long way in helping us meet demand for our beers in the
22 states that now enjoy our luscious canned and kegged goods. With
these tanks we're on pace to boost our annual beer production by about
75%, to over 20,000 barrels in 2008. Yahoo!
