Oskar Blues Brewery will be opening a third brewery in Austin, Texas.
The new space will be located at 10420 Metric Blvd. in Austin and will hold a 50,000-square-foot brewery, which includes a 5,000-square-foot taproom and music venue. According to a press release, the brewery will be open by April 20, 2016, and will be producing “the full line up of cans and draft.” Although the initial production will be 30,000 BBLs per year, there will be a potential capacity to brew more than 100,000 BBLs a year.
“North Carolina and Colorado are filled with amazing communities and experiences mingled with live music and Fuh-CAN great craft beer scenes,” said Dale Katechis, founder of Oskar Blues, in a press release. “The passion and rebellious nature of Austin locals, along with the food, craft beer and live music scenes create a vibe that already feels like home.”
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.
