Oskar Blues Brewery has chosen National Beer Day to ship its newest release.
The beer is Beerito, a 4 percent ABV Mexican-style lager brewed with malts sources from both Germany and Colorado. The new year-round release is being released at both Tasty Weasel Taproom locations in Longmont, Colo. and Brevard, N.C. .
The challenge in creating this beer was creating layers of complexities rather than an abundance of big flavor,” said Tim Matthews, head of brewing operations at Oskar Blues, in a press release. “The result is a mild mouth coating with malt complexity, ranging from almonds, walnuts and bread crust, along with a refreshing hop note from noble hops.”
According to a press release, Beerito is packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce cans and is shipping to all states in the from the Longmont, Colo.-based brewery’s distribution footprint.
