News from Oskar Blues Brewery

We're reeling in some heavy accolades these days. Oskar Blues Brewery has been selected to the Top 50 Colorado Companies to Watch list. The search for this fine fifty is run by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and we are the only brewery on this serious A-list. Get full details at .

The June issue of Men's Health heaps big praise on us in a feature touting "16 New Lessons of Great Guy Food." Lesson 15 is Good Things Do Come in Cans, it's a wonderful chronicling of our man Dale and our uncanny canned beers. Get details on page 125 of the issue.

We're also cited in the new issue of Food & Wine Magazine in a piece touting the Top Brewtopias of the World.

Read more Oskar-winning news in the current issue of Beer Magazine (big love for Mama's Little Yella Pils), All About Beer (a feature on our leading role in the growing microcanned segment) and New Brewer (with det's on our growth in 2008.)

Beer Dinner Alert
June 18 we're doing a very nice beer dinner at the Barking Goat Tavern down in Castle Pines. The night features OBB beers and a one-night-only menu matched to those brews. The Barking Goat has recently been taken over by Eric Warner, a CO craft beer heavy whose efforts with the late Tabernash Brewing, and then Left Hand and Flying Dog, are legendary. His new spot features a lovely list of fine US and imported beers, Grade-A food, and neighborhood pub culture. Reserve a seat at the beer-dinner table at

Our beers were a hit at the recent SAVOR event in Wash. DC., in the National Building Museum. The affair was top-notch, the historic setting unforgettable. We met several longtime fans and made many new ones, too. One fan's comment: "Some weeks I face the big question: ‘Food for my kids or more Gordon?’" We think he was joking. Big thanks to our pals at Wen Chocolates and Udi’s Granola for sending us their small-batch creations to pair with our beers for a special tasting we conducted at SAVOR. If you haven’t tried the artisan treats from these two outfits, you’ve not had the state’s best chocolates and granola.
