Oskar Blues She’Boogie Bop, a beer brewed entirely by women, debuts this month.
Oskar Blues brewer Diana Locatelli, brewers assistant Lauren Laquerre, along with Kristin Hubbard, and Sara Laurienti from the cellar created the beer. The base is a cream ale, serenaded by the sweet sounds of Prince, with vanilla beans and lavender added post fermentation.
“It’s pretty obvious that the production-side of brewing is male-dominated. I think ladies-only day was a rad way to celebrate being brew chicks. We had a lot of fun making SHE’Boogie Bop.” Using their collective beer prowess to rock the Lyons brewbarn, they created a beer that’s crisp and slightly sweet, with herbal notes from the lavender. – Diana Locatelli, Oskar Blues brewer
Oskar Blues She’Boogie Bop will be available on draft only starting March 13th at the brewery’s Colorado locations and restaurant locations.
Oskar Blues Death by Coconut made a summer 2015 appearance in 19.2 ounce cans. At the time, it was only sold at the taprooms in Colorado and North Carolina. Now it’s a national hit.
Oskar Blues Death By Coconut was first introduced during Colorado Craft Beer Week in March of 2014. The beer is a collaboration with Oskar Blue’s Jason Buehler, and Shamrock Brewing Co.’s Keith Hefley. The base beer is an Irish porter, aged on dried coconut and dark chocolate.
Taste. If you love creamy coconut favors, look no future. You have your beer. Oskar Blues Death By Coconut tastes like an alcoholic Almond Joy candy bar. Every thing from the smell to the taste is over the top, and that’s not a bad thing.
Oskar Blues Death By Coconut is available in 12 ounce cans, and draft nationally for a limited it.

By now you should be familiar with Oskar Blues Ten Fidy, one of the most well-known imperial stouts in the business. The barrel-aged edition is already highly-sought after. This weekend, the brewery is taking things a step further.
Oskar Blues Java Ten Fidy is the base imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels, with Hotbox Roasters coffee. The same coffee found in Hotbox Porter.
There is a downside, however. Unlike the national availability of BA Fidy, Java Ten Fidy will only be available at Oskar Blues in Brevard on Friday, and at the taproom in Colorado on Saturday, November 5th.
Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy finds cans again this year, showing up in the national market by the first week of November. The beer was heavily featured around Denver during the Great American Beer Festival this year.
Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy has been a limited tap offering and was released in 19.2 ounce cans for the first time last year in tap room only. This first can appearance was not the easiest to get. However, this year it should be a bit easier to find since it will see national distribution.
Ten FIDY Imperial Stout – This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 65 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt.
Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy is available in 19.2 ounce cans starting the first week of November.
Oskar Blues Hotbox Coffee Porter, a collaboration with Hotbox Roasters, is returning to shelves for a second time. The beer first debuted in December, 2015.
Hotbox Coffee Porter features cold-extracted coffee from Burundian and Ethiopian beans, to give the base porter flavors and aromas of dark plums, chocolate and hints of blueberry.
“Hotbox Porter shows that beer and coffee were meant to be together. Digging in with Hotbox Roasters allowed us to develop a malt blend and a coffee blend that gel beautifully.” -Tim Mathews, Head of Oskar Blues brewing operations
As you’ll recall, earlier this year the brewery also partnered Hotbox Roasters to offer coffee beans in cans.
Oskar Blues Hotbox Coffee Porter is available nationally in 12 ounce cans and draft through November, 2016.
6.4% ABV, 30 IBUs
Oskar Blues Passionfruit Pinner IPA will heading the brewery’s summer lineup.
The base recipe is Pinner “Throwback IPA” that features Passionfruit and a touch of blood orange juice.
“Passion fruit is very prominent in PINNER Throwback IPA’s dry-hopped flavor spectrum, locking in on that and accentuating it alongside the existing mouthfeel and clean malt characteristics is a natural extension of what this beer is all about” – head brewer Tim Matthews.
Oskar Blues Passionfruit Pinner is available starting in late June in 12 ounce cans, nationally.
Oskar Blues Priscilla launches nationwide this month. A new Belgian-style wheat beer.
Orange peel and coriander add nuance to this new release. Priscilla has been on tap for over 10 years at the original Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons, Colorado.
“Priscilla is a beer steeped in Oskar Blues’ music history,” said Chad Melis. “A longtime Oskar Blues favorite, we’ve decided its time to bring this amped up, electric brew from the basement and to the masses.”
Oskar Blues Priscilla is shipping nationwide this month. The brewery recently announced completing all 50 state distribution.
