Since it was first brewed in 2006, Oskar Blues Ten Fidy has gone on to become one of the highest-rated imperial stouts in the world. The beer boasts an overall score of 100 on Ratebeer, and it's been ranked among the top 250 beers to be found anywhere by users of Beer Advocate.
Even today there exists a stigma surrounding craft beer in cans. They would have you believe that glass equals class and that the aluminum structure will impart metallic off-flavors or some other such bunkum and balderdash.
Oskar Blues Brewery has an interesting past with some interesting accomplishments, culminating in our review today of a crowler of Four Roses Barrel-Aged GUBNA, but before we get to that lets rewind the clock just a little bit. Founded in 1997 by Dick Dale Katechis, Oskar Blues Brewery was originally Oskar Blues Grill & Brew Restaurant located in Lyons, Colo. After doing the restaurant thing for a year, they started brewing their own beer in the basement and took home a bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival for their beer The Reverend Sandi’s Sinful Stout.
