In November of 2002, tiny Oskar Blues Brewery launched its “Canned Beer Apocalypse” and became the first US craft brewer to brew and can its own beer. The brewery began hand-canning its hoppy Dale’s Pale Ale on a table-top machine that filled and sealed two cans at a time. Why cans? “We thought the idea of our big, juicy beer in a can was hilarious,” says founder Dale Katechis. Cans are also much more portable for our outdoor enjoyment, they keep beer especially fresh by fully protecting it from light, and having exceptionally low amounts of dissolved oxygen. They’re also easier to recycle and less fuel-consuming to ship. Oskar Blues is now the largest-producing brewpub in the US and one of the fastest-growing craft breweries in America. The microbrewery has grown by over 1200% since it began hand-canning.


Oskar Blues DALE’S PALE ALE

ABV: 6.5%
IBUs: 65

Oskar Blues Brewery

The most talked about craft brew in America, Dale’s Pale Ale is the first hand-canned microbrew in the U.S.! Dale’s gold medal winning craft brew delivers a blast of hop aromas, a mouthful of hop flavors and a thrilling finish! You’ll find plenty of malt in the copper-colored brew as well, but the piney citrus-edged hops are in the drivers’ seat! Try this hearty craft brew with Mexican, Thai and Viet foods-the spicier the better! Dale’s will also go great with a rare bacon cheeseburger and fresh-cut fries or a plateful of hot, fried chicken. Dale’s Pale Ale is uncompromising beer for true beer adventurers!



Oskar Blues OLD CHUB SCOTTISH ALE

ABV: 8%
IBUs: 35

Oskar Blues Brewery

One of the biggest beers ever put in a can, Old Chub is rich, sweet and just a little bit smokey, like good barbecue. It’s the nation’s first hand-canned Scotch ale and the maltiest American beer ever to be squeezed into a can. From a can or the tap, Old Chub is an amazingly drinkable craft brew with a cola color, creamy body and semi-sweet flavors of caramel, chocolate and smoked grains. Its rich flavor and sweetness make this craft brew a wonderful companion to a thick, rich beef stew. It will taste great in the stew as well; this is a perfect cooking beer! Don’t forget dessert…Old Chub is delicious with sinful chocolate desserts. To top it all off, Old Chub Scottish Style Ale has an 8% ABV and is now Available in both Fall and Winter seasons in cans and draught.



Oskar Blues G’Knight

ABV: 8.7%
IBUs: 85

Oskar Blues Brewery

A bonanza of a beer! G’Knight is roughly in the “Double” IPA style that has fascinated western brewers lately, but it is a different take on that hop-heavy genre. G’Knight manages to be light on its feet while still packing a ton of malt sweetness, a boatload of ale-fruity esters and fire-breathing hop character. The most striking thing about this craft brew is not how hoppy it is, but how balanced it is; teetering successfully between huge malt body and ripping hop character and bitterness. Almost too drinkable; beware! Pull out your biggest dishes for this one! It will tame spice, match richness, cut oily fish and come to grips with big cheeses.


Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils

ABV: 5.3%

Oskar Blues Brewery

The newest addition to the Oskar Blues portfolio is a small-batch version of a beer that made Pilsen, Czechoslovakia famous. Mama’s Little Yella Pils, Oskar Blues’ first canned lager, is made with hearty amounts of pale malt, German specialty malts and a blend of traditional (Saaz) and 21st century Bavarian hops. Fermented at cool temperatures with a German yeast, Mama’s is a tasteful reality “Czech”. It’s gentle hopping and low ABV (just 5.3%) means that Oskar Blues is truly honoring consumer demand for a delicious, less challenging beer.


Oskar Blues Ten Fidy

ABV: 10%

Oskar Blues Brewery

The ultimate Rocky Mountain winter warmer and further proof of the creative muscle of our beloved brewing staff.  It's the beer equivalent of decadently rich milkshake made with malted-milk balls and Heaven’s best chocolate ice cream. Ten FIDY is about 10% ABV and is made with enormous amounts of two-row malts, chocolate malts, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Its huge-but-comforting flavors hide a whopping 98 IBUs that are deftly tucked underneath the beer’s mountains of malty goodness. Limited availability.



Oskar Blues Gubna

ABV: 10%

Oskar Blues Brewery

This rye IPA is packed with 15% rye and North American pale malt accented with Munich malt to give it a spicy and flavorful malt backbone, all to support loads of kettle hops driving the IBUs up to triple digits! The beer is then dry-hopped with tons of Sorachi Ace, Chinook and Mosaic hops to create a potent aroma of lemon zest, red berries, spice, peach and herbs. All punctuated with that prevailing dank nose!


Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s

ABV: 8%

Oskar Blues Brewery

The first 16oz. can by Oskar Blues Brewery is a sensory assault for hop lovers. At 8.0% ABV, four hop additions during the brew process and a final wallop of excessive Columbus dry-hopping, this beer is meant to say one thing: MORE HOPS!  Deviant is a small batch favorite from the little brewery in Lyons, CO that started the Canned Beer Revolution!
