Oskar Blues Brewery Releases Saloon Juice Amber Lager
September 13, 2019
Inspired by the Texas Hill Country, Saloon Juice is made by Texans for Texans.
Longmont, Colo. (September 12, 2019) Oskar Blues Brewery introduces Saloon Juice Amber Lager, a new Texas-only release made by Texans for Texans. Saloon Juice is now available at the Oskar Blues Austin taproom and at select craft beer sellers throughout the Lone Star State.
Saloon Juice is malt-forward but easy-drinking with caramel and toasted cracker notes. The shining star of the malt bill is Brown Field 10 Texas Munich, sourced from Blacklands Malt, located only 20 miles from Oskar Blues’ Austin Brewery. Brown Field 10 Texas Munich has rich malt and lightly toasty characteristics with subtle notes of chocolate. It establishes a smooth malt foundation that’s balanced by a polite-yet-firm hop finish spearheaded by quintessential noble hop, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, and complemented by French Aramis. The result is clean, crisp, floral and earthy with herbal and citrus flavors.
The recipe was inspired by the Texas Hill Country, where German immigrants settled by the thousands in the 19th century. The German dedication to brewing has had a heavy influence on Texas-made beer ever since. Oskar Blues Austin’s Head Brewer, Luke Burcham, said, “It’s full-flavored and light-bodied, combining German style with Texas flavor. Saloon Juice offers a whole world to be experienced, and leaves nothing to be desired…except more Saloon Juice.”
Oskar Blues recommends pairing Saloon Juice with brisket, freedom and more Saloon Juice. Find it now at the Austin taproom and select Texas retailers on draft and in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans.
