OSKAR BLUES ANNOUNCES LARGE FORMAT (15-PACK) CANUNDRUM MIXED-PACK, ADDS G’KNIGHT IMPERIAL IPA FOR NATIONAL DISTRIBUTION

 

Oskar Blues Large Format Packages are up Over 100% From 2017

LONGMONT, CO, AUG 22, 2018 – The Oskar Blues Brewery CANundrum variety pack, previously presented as a 12-pack, is now available as a 15-er dream team of the brewery’s best core offerings. Oskar Blues provides more diversity to the beer drinker with the new format, which will be distributed nationwide starting Sept. 1. Oskar Blues is one of only five craft breweries in the U.S. to release a mixed 15-pack.

Oskar Blues Brewery has crammed five straight-shooting brews into one box. So what’s inside?

•Dale’s Pale Ale
•Mama’s Little Yella Pils
•Pinner Throwback IPA
•Oskar Blues IPA
•G’Knight Imperial Red IPA (in a mixed pack for the first time)

Dale’s Pale Ale, the voluminously hopped mutha and #2 selling craft six-pack in U.S. Grocery, plays centre. This pack’s power forward is Mama’s Little Yella Pils, a true-to-the-style, uncompromising pilsner brewed with pilsner malt and Saaz and Aramis hops. Pinner Throwback IPA rocks the small forward position with citrusy, tropical fruit notes and a biscuity finish at an incredibly crushable 4.9% ABV. Playing shooting guard is OB IPA, a metamodern IPA crafted from hand-selected Australian hops. Rounding out the lineup is G’Knight Imperial Red Ale at point guard.

The U.S. Open Beer Championship recently honored G’Knight Imperial Red IPA with a gold medal in the Imperial Red IPA category. Up 121% in 2018, this monstrously malted, sadistically smooth and well-balanced beer is America’s Velvet M-80. G’Knight is an OG Oskar Blues beer brewed and named in honor of a real life American hero, Gordon Knight. Knight was a Colorado craft beer legend, decorated Vietnam vet and Purple Heart recipient who lost his life in a helicopter crash while fighting a wildfire outside of Oskar Blues’ birthplace of Lyons, CO.

The 15-pack offers more of what today’s craft drinker demands – variety. That desire is demonstrated by 32.6% growth YTD in mixed can packs. Additionally, many of the “Impact Brands” identified by the BA in 2017 were mixed pack offerings, demonstrated by the success of the Oskar Blues shrink-wrapped CANundrum 24 multi-pack with packaging engineered by The Dow Chemical Company, which is up over 400% YTD.

Oskar Blues’ CANundrum is the choicest choice you don’t have to make. Why pick one Oskar Blues beer when you can have ‘em all? Play to win and find a 15-pack CANundrum near you using the beerfinder.

OSKAR BLUES AUSTIN THROWS DOWN FOR 2-YEAR CANIVERSARY

 

Sweet Spirit to Headline Oskar Blues’ CANiversary Weekend

AUSTIN, TX, AUG. 22, 2018 – It’s been two years since the first can of Dale’s Pale Ale rolled off the
can line at Oskar Blues’ Austin, TX, facility. Sept. 14-15, the brewery celebrates another
CANiversary in true Oskar Blues style – with live music, specialty beers including barrel-aged
offerings and outdoor festivities. Friday evening will offer local music headlined by Austin-based
rock band Sweet Spirit; and the beer-soaked party overflows into Saturday, when folks are invited
to reconvene for Adult Field Day. Tix for Friday night’s concert are available here. A
commemorative pint glass is provided with each ticket purchase. There is no fee to attend
Saturday’s Adult Field Day.

“We’re really lucky to make craft beer in this city. Beer, music and community are key ingredients
for a happy life, and there are few places in the world where that recipe comes together as
naturally as it does in Austin,” said Michael Harris, Head Brewer of the Oskar Blues Austin
Brewery location. “We’re proud to be part of the rad happenings going on in this community.”

Friday, Sept. 14, the taproom will be open noon to 5pm, and then close for party prep between 5-
7pm. Oskar Blues wouldn’t leave folks beerless though – cold cans will be available on the patio
during prep time. Doors open at 7pm, and the show kicks off with Continental Drift at 8pm. The
local ten-piece band is known for laying down Afro-Centric grooves interwoven with Latin and
American funk, soul and psychedelia. At 9:30pm, Sweet Spirit, a nine-piece powerhouse, takes
the taproom stage. Sweet Spirit has received national attention and been praised as Austin’s
“next great rock band.”

While ears are occupied by Austin’s best local music, Acid Light Show will keep eyeballs busy. A
Cosmic Interdimensional Display (ACID) evoking 1960’s-style psychedelic liquid light freak-outs
will surround party-goers during the music.

A limited number of General Admission tickets for Friday night’s musical bash are available at the
taproom for the special price of $8. The rest are available here for $12.

On Saturday, Sept. 15, folks are invited to round up the squad for Adult Field Day. Participants can
grab a beer, get their game faces on and throw down in events like malt bag racing, a mini bike
relay, jumbo beer pong and more. REI will be on-site with an interactive tent and bicycle techs for
beer-loving bicyclists. Oskar Blues will also have kid-friendly activities available for younger
humans to enjoy. There is no admission fee on Saturday.
