Announcing Oskar the Lion
August 4, 2020
A baby lion cub at the Denver Zoo has been named after Oskar Blues Brewery. The Denver Zoo asked the public to vote on their favorite Colorado-inspired names for two newborn lion cubs, one boy and one girl. The name Oskar was the crowd favorite, and the pick of former Denver Broncos Quarterback Peyton Manning (watch the video here).
Being from Lyons, Colorado, we have a soft spot for big cats (get it?) That’s why $1 from each 4-pack purchase of Oskar The Lion supports the Denver Zoo. The funds go toward keeping zoo animals healthy and benefiting wildlife conservation efforts.
The king of the jungle, Oskar The Lion reigns over flavors of pink guava and zesty tangerine. Majestic tropical notes of papaya, passion fruit, melon, ripe pear and orange purr throughout this tart golden ale.
Oskar The Lion (the beer) is a super limited release, available for purchase only at Oskar Blues’ Longmont and Boulder Taprooms starting August 4. See current taproom hours here.
