One of Oskar Blues Brewery’s most popular new releases is going national.
The beer is Death By Coconut, a 6.5 percent ABV Irish porter brewed with coconut and dark chocolate that was first released in 2014 during the Colorado Craft Beer Week. The original version of the beer was a collaboration between Oskar Blues and Pueblo, Colo.-based Shamrock Brewing Co., both of which have released their own versions.
In June, Oskar Blues released a version of the beer in 19.2-ounce cans that was only available in Colorado and North Carolina, the two current states where the brewery actually has brewing operations.
According to Chad Melis, marketing director for Oskar Blues, the newest release of Death By Coconut will be packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce cans and limited amounts will be shipped to retailers across the breweries entire distribution footprint starting next month.
