Oskar Blues Brewery Launches Distribution in Utah

Press Release

January 7, 2016

Salt Lake City—Oskar Blues Brewery is closing in on its U.S. footprint with the launch of distribution in Utah, which makes 46 total states (as well as Washington D.C.) in which its craft canned brews are available. The move represents one of the final steps in becoming a leading nationally distributed craft beer brand. 

Flagship brew and the first craft beer in a can, Dale’s Pale Ale (6.5% ABV, 65 IBUs), will be widely available at DABC-run liquor stores. G’Knight (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs) a dry hopped IMPERIAL RED IPA with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors, will also be available. Both brews are sold in 12 oz. 6-packs. The entire Oskar Blues line-up, including DPA, Pinner Throwback IPA and Oskar Blues IPA will be available in cans, along with the limited release 4% abv. “Beerito Vienna Lager” on draft at select craft beer bars. 

The brewery has also partnered with Salt Lake City-based breweries Wasatch and Squatters to release a new session beer called Utah Blues. The brew boasts a malt base with slight caramel malt profile, apple juice, ginger root, mosaic hops and fermented with a Weiss yeast. The innovators behind this new style, including Oskar Blues’ head brewer Tim Matthews and 18 year Squatters veteran and Head Brewmaster Jon Lee, are calling it an Apple Ginger Hopfenweiss. The brew will be available at the Utah Brewers Cooperative, Wasatch Brew Pubs (Park City and Sugarhouse), Squatters Salt Lake City Pub, and Texas Roadhouse (Taylorsville).

“With the outdoor-centric lifestyle we share with many Utah residents, our highly portable and flavor-packed brews will make a welcome addition,” says soul-founder Dale Katechis. “We look forward to enhancing this lifestyle with fu-CAN great craft beer.”

Several of Oskar Blues’ Utah accounts will host welcome events:

·      January 7, 5-8 PM – Poplar Street Pub (242 200 W.)

·      January 8, 5-7 PM – The Green Pig Pub (31 E. 400 S.)

·      January 9, 5-7 PM – Beer Bar (161 E. 200 S.)
