THE OSKAR BLUES ORDEAL – GABF 2011

Great American Beer Festival is just around the corner. We want to give fans the chance to see what Oskar Blues is all about. The Oskar Blues Ordeal is four days of bus tours featuring Live Music, Specialty Beers and Backstage Access to all things Oskar Blues.  Visit the original Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons, the 50 acre Hops & Heifers farm, Homemade Liquids & Solids Restaurant and The Tasty Weasel Taproom in the Brewery. In addition to the bus tours, we have Oskar Blues beer-inspired events.

Check out the schedule below, and pick a day or an event (or all of them!) that you’d like to attend. Tickets are $25 per event– if you choose to go on the bus tour, the main event of that day is included in the ticket price. If you can’t make a full day bus tour, you can buy a ticket for an individual event. No matter what, it’s $25! On Wednesday, you can “double down” for $45 — attend the bus tour during the day, and the hoedown that night.

Purchase tickets here. Note– the Friday bus tour & lunch are sold out.
