Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy

Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy will be available nationally again in November.

It takes nearly a year to make Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy. The 19.2-ounce cans were first seen in the brewery’s taprooms in fall of 2015. The demand was so high, Oskar Blues ramped up production and made it nationally available for the first time in 2016.

This month, Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy goes national once again.

Oskar Blues famed imperial stout Ten Fidy is aged in a blend of Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for at least 8 months.

“This stout is loaded with inimitable flavors consisting of espresso, burnt sugar, rich chocolate and caramel notes, which are combined with the vanilla, oak and bourbon flavors that have been smoothed out from maturation.”  – Tim Matthews, Head of Brewing Operations

Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy is available in 19.2-ounce cans and draft by mid-November 2017.

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)

Oskar Blues Java Ten Fidy returns again for one day only

Oskar Blues Java Ten Fidy

Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy is hitting shelves nationally again this month. An even rarer edition of the imperial stout will also return – Oskar Blues Java Ten Fidy.

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 has proven to be an instant hit, and not easy to find. This month a Java Ten Fidy will return to both of the brewery’s taprooms for one day only.

Ten Fidy has been aged in a blend of bourbon barrels for nearly a year before a finishing flourish of Hotbox Roasters coffee being added. That’s the same coffee found in the brewery’s Hotbox Porter, and Hotbox IPA.

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 November 11th, 2017. Numbered wristbands will be handed out starting at 9:30 am, with sales commencing at 10 am.

Oskar Blues Death By Coconut

Oskar Blues Death by Coconut has been canned and is headed to shelves again soon. At one point it was only sold at the taprooms in Colorado and North Carolina. Now it’s a national hit.

Oskar Blues She’Boogie Bop, brewed by women

Oskar Blues She'Boogie Bop

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.

Style: Cream Ale (w/ Lavender, Vanilla Beans.)
Availability: Draft Only.
Debut: 3/13/17

5.5% ABV
