It’s always a special occasion when friends come to visit for the holidays, especially when they’ve traveled pretty far. Oskar Blues Brewery comes to Payless Liquors all the way from Lyons, Colorado. Oskar Blues has a rich history that you can read more about here. Suffice it to say, they were the first US craft brewer to can their own beer, and they’ve grown quite a bit since they started creating beers in the basement of their brewpub.
But history was never our strongest subject in school. Here, in no particular order, are a few of the Oskar Blues beers that you can now pick up at Payless Liquors:
Dale’s Pale Ale is the flagship beer of Oskar Blue Brewery and the first to be canned. Described as an ale with “a hoppy nose,” this beer delivers a strong but balanced taste from beginning to end. We have it available in 6 packs and 19 oz cans.
Mama’s Little Yella Pils is a pale lager that Beer Advocate describes as “malty and grainy.” With so much focus on hops in the current market, it’s good to see a lager getting so much attention. Available in 6 packs of cans.
Ten Fidy was created in 2007. It’s a viscous stout with flavors of chocolate, caramel and coffee. Weighing in at 10.5% ABV, Paste Magazine offers that “you don’t want to swig these bad boys.” With such amazing flavor, why would you want to? We’ve got these heavy weights in 4 packs of cans.
Old Chub is a Scottish ale that comes in at an agreeable 8% ABV. Old Chub won Oskar Blues GOLD at the 2008 World Beer Championships. Rate Beer gave this Scottish brew a 97%. We couldn’t agree more. Also available in 6 packs at Payless Liquors.
Deviant Dale’s IPA is Oskar Blues Brewery’s latest creation, and their first can to come in the 16 oz variety. With aromas of citrus, grapefruit and pine, this IPA has a beautiful copper color and amazing finish that will leave you wanting more. We carry them in 4 packs.
As you can see, Oskar Blues Brewery produces top quality beer. That might be why they’ve been steadily expanding into new states and facilities for over 10 years. Payless Liquors is only too happy to help with that expansion. Don’t miss the boat—come visit our new Colorado friends!
