What: Oskar Blues Grill & Brew 15th Anniversary Celebration
Where: Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons, Colorado
When: Saturday, April 28th
We’re throwin’ back to 1997 and celebrating 15 years of soul food, live music and great brews at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons, ColoRADo.
Our funky little brewpub was born 15 years ago when Dale and his wife stumbled across Lyons, Colorado on a road trip. That trip began many Colorado-born inspirations and experiences that have shaped what Oskar Blues is today.
On April 28th, the 15 year celebration at the Lyons, Co brewpub will include two live bands – Interstate Stash Express & The Informants, a pig roast/crawfish buffet, specialty brews, and a full day of family activities including a live petting zoo, housemade Rootbeer, commemorative t-shirts, Oskar Blues race car appearance, photo booth and a local artist gallery from 1pm to 5pm.
The day will also serve as the official launch of a few new libations: The 15th Anniversary Abbey Ale in new 16oz cans along with the official CAN launch of B. Stiff and Sons Old Fashioned Rootbeer. Oskar Blues is canning the same Rootbeer that has been served in their restaurants over the past few years named in tribute to Brian Stiff, a Lyons local and father of two who unexpectedly passed away on February 11th.
A note on Brian Stiff from Dale: “Brian was one of our bike riding buddies. He lived up in Lyons, and it’s just an awful, awful story…” Stiff died unexpectedly in February. Since then, “Our friends in Lyons have been looking for ways to help his widow and two young children and canning the root beer, with a portion of the proceeds going to the family, is our way to do that.”
So, come on down and join us in Lyons on Saturday, April 28th for a FULL DAY of festivities, and let’s PARTY LIKE IT’S 1997!
