USBF: OSKAR BLUES TAP TAKEOVER @ NORTH BAR
Our US Beer Festival is back!
And we’re kicking off with a weekend tap takeover from brewing giants Oskar Blues.
In 2002 they were one of the first breweries to can their delicious brews, starting with Dales Pale Ale, a legend among craft beer. They are the largest craft beer brewery in America to abstain from using glass bottles and now have 3 different sites, in Colorado, North California and Texas.
On our taps will be these delicious offerings:
Can – O – Bliss – 7.2%
A rotating series of IPAs featuring Tropical (Jan-Apr), Hazy (May-Aug), and Citrus (Sep-Dec) styles.
Dale’s Pale Ale – 6.5%
Legendary American Pale Ale & maybe the reason everybody knows the name Oskar Blues. A very generously hopped pale, absolutely crammed with US flavours & aromas. Orange zest and earthy pine with caramel malts & a nice bitterness. A light body and medium carbonation provide for a refreshing end. Nice work, Dale!
G’Knight Imperial Red IPA – 8.7%
This big but drinkable red IPA is packed with hop flavours, a sticky mouthfeel & tons of big aromas. Super-enjoyable without being subtle thanks to a surprisingly sensuous finish, despite its size (8.7% and 60 IBU)
One-y – 4%
A Hazy IPA that’s big on flavours but low on calories (100 – pretty much the same as a bag of french fries!). Lots of citrus flavours thanks to a dry-hopping with El Dorado, Comet & Citra. Majorly sessionable!
Pinner – 4.9%
Thanks to a moderate 4.9% ABV and 35 IBUs, Pinner is a drinkable IPA brewed with several varieties of hops to target the ever-evolving flavor. They say Pinner is the perfect beer to drink before your next pint of Pinner.
Rose for Daze – 6%
A perfectly tart fruit rose-style ale, brewed with prickly pear and hibiscus. One of those where you’ll take your first sip, look at the tap badge and then go “ooh, 6%? That’s a bit dangerous, isn’t it?” It’s crisp, refreshing and unbelievably moreish.
