Oskar Blues is coming to town!


Happy Monday everyone! West Side is super excited to announce that Oskar Blues is coming to town beginning March 4!

If you hadn’t heard of this brewery here are some stats to get to know Oskar Blues a bit better.




Top 5 Reasons Oskar Blues is Awesome



1.
 They started the Canrevolution for craft.

Before anyone else, Oskar Blue started canning Dale’s Pale Ale in 2002 and started the craft can revolution. Since then, craft in cans started to grow into a new movement, all headed by Oskar Blues and their ability to do what they wanted and thought best.  


2.
 All of their beers are award-winning.

Dale’s Pale Ale is known as the best pale ale around, according to the New York Times. From their stable, three beers have won top awards at GABF and three have won tops awards at the World Beer Championships (including G’Knight the 2008 and 2010 Gold Medal winner).


3.
Oskar Blues is known for their bad ass culture.

The best kind of brewery is the kind the that produces beer you not only want to drink but employs the sort of people you want to share a pint with. Oskar Blues’ commitment to their employees and their company’s fun and bad ass culture make it a brewery you can drink and drink with.


4.
They have some of the best names for their brews.

 From Old Chub and Mama’s Little Yella Pils to the Gubna and Deviant Dale’s, their beers are fun to drink and to talk about.


5.
They make some seriously delectable beers.

 Just take a look at these five beers that will be available in the Grand Rapids market starting March 5.

  • Dale’s Pale Ale. 6.5% ABV 65 IBU
    A hoppy nose is accented by pale malt flavors that simultaneously consume and soothe the palette from start to finish.
  • Deviant Dale’s. 8% ABV 85 IBU
    A hop-forward aroma with citrus and pine notes partner with strong malty flavor to crush your soul with this IPA’s bold flavor.
  •  Old Chub. 8% ABV
    This scotch ale is full of semi-sweet cocoa and coffee flavors with a touch of smoke from the beechwood-smoked malt.
  • Mama’s Little Yella Pils. 5.3% ABV 35 IBU
    Made in the proud tradition of the Czech Republic’s Pilsens, this brew comes completely from pale malts. Bavarian hops add to this perfectly balanced and refreshing beverage.
  •  G’Knight. 8.5% ABV 60 IBU
    A dry-hopped double red ale that is full of big hop aroma and flavor, all balanced with a malty backbone.
  • Gubna. 10% ABV 100 IBU
    This imperial IPA keeps it simple in order to create an epic brew; 3 malts and Summit hops combine to produce a beer with a slightly spicy malt character and bitter hops flavor. Dry hopping lends a citrus and grapefruit aroma.
