Oskar Blues & Asheville Brewing Collaborate. You Name It.

Asheville Brewing Company and Oskar Blues Brewery have just created a new North Carolina collaboration brew. It is the first by Oskar Blues since moving into Brevard, NC.  The beer? An imperial coffee brown ale brewed with a smidge of  molasses. The beer was brewed at Asheville Brewing.  They want help naming the beer. Here’s some hints…

Think Alabama/Southern roots (both Doug Riley and DaleKatechis are from that Magnolia-strewn state). Think big, bold lightly-hopped nectar with a malty, steeped with Ethiopian-blend coffee, backbone. Think fun, punny, and a little outrageous (but not crude). Winner will receive a t-shirt from both breweries and huge street cred.

Drop an idea on their Facebook page.  Pic via Asheville Brewing.

Style: Imperial Brown Ale (w/ Coffee)
Availability: Draft Only
Arrival: 4/8/13

If you go: 

Simultaneous release parties on April 8th at each brewery (North Carolina).
