With Oskar Blues opening a second location in North Carolina the first thing they wanted to do was make friends in their new Southern home. What better way than to brew with them? Keeping that in mind, Oskar Blues has teamed up with Asheville Brewing Company for their first colla-BEER-ation inspired by the Southern roots around them. Meet Big BAMA Buzz – an Imperial Brown Ale with Ethipian-blend coffee. The name was created by combining two names entered by Matt Hazelton and Janice Freeman on the breweries’ Facebook pages. Since the head brewer at Ashville and the owner for Oskar Blues are both from Alabama and love all things Southern, the name just seemed perfect.
Simultaneous launch parties will take place at both breweries on Monday, April 8th, from 4-8pm with proceeds of beer sales benefitting the Animal Care Network, the largest animal welfare organization in Western North Carolina.
