Oskar Blues Brewery (CO/NC) is upping their nitro game with the addition of Oskar Blues Old Chub Nitro Cans.
Old Chub has been available on Nitro taps prior to this release. Nitro cans are a first for the craft beer in a can pioneer. Cans officially launch this week in Denver at the Craft Brewer’s Conference. National distribution announcement to follow.
OLD CHUB NITRO utilizes an existing widget technology developed by Ball. The Nitro widget is attached to the bottom of the can and is charged with liquid nitrogen during the filling process. The widget releases the nitrogen when the can is opened, liberating the cascading creamy smooth nitro pour.
Oskar Blues first launched nitrogen infused versions of their beers in 2009, thanks to brewer Juice Drapeau. Offerings since have included Dale’s Pale Ale, G’Knight Red Ale, alongside a few small batch offerings.
16oz/4 pack cans launch Friday, April 11th.
Style: Scotch Ale (Nitrogen)
Availability: 16oz Cans
