This summer, Oskar Blues Brewery will be opening a new taproom in its home state.
The Longmont, Colo.-based brewery will be building a brand new taproom in Boulder, Colorado that is scheduled to open in “late summer.” In a press release, Oskar Blues has announced the new facility will be located at 921 Pearl Street, which was formerly occupied by World of Beer.
“Over the years, we’ve developed great relationships in the Boulder community with BolderBoulder, University of Colorado, Gold Rush Rally and through the efforts of the CAN’d Aid Foundation with groups like the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance,” said Chad Melis, marketing director at Oskar Blues, in a press release. “The live music scene and connection to the outdoors is at the core of the Oskar Blues culture. We’re stoked to extend our front door to Pearl Street and Boulder proper.”
In addition to more than 20 taps that will feature a full line-up of Oskar Blues releases, there will be offerings from Cigar City Brewing and Perrin Brewing as well as a “pared down menu of Oskar Blues classic eats.” In addition, the new taproom will offer canned beer to-go as well as draft-only releases packaged in crowlers.
Oskar Blues was founded by Katechis in 1997 as a restaurant in the town of Lyons, Colo., but moved brewery productions to Longmont, Colo. in 2008. The brewery opened a satellite brewery in Brevard, N.C. in 2013 that brews more than 100,000 BBLs of beer a year and a third brewery in Austin, Texas last year that will eventually have the capacity to brew more than 100,000 BBLs a year.
