Entry: Great Beer in a CAN!! Friday, January 21, 2005



Hey all you beer afficianados, great beer has come to a can near you. That's right, I said a can. Oskar Blues brewing in Colorado has canned two of their beers and are distributing to Washington and elswhere. The only one I have tried to date is the Scotch ale, and it was quite good as well as packing an 8% punch. Very caramel and malty flavor, great mouth feel, and a smoky follow through. This is a good beer. It does lack the esthery undertones common to great scotch ales such as McEwans, but it was a great beer. Seattle PI had an article on this this week and mentioned that they sent a 60 day supply up here and it dissappeared in less than 20. Not surprising with the buzz it's causing. I got my 12 pack at Central Market in Mill Creek about the 2nd day they had it. Look for it in several beer toting local grocery stores, and be sure to check out the Supersuckers cd that comes in their "Singing 12 packs". I'll get the links in here as soon as I get home and am not working on a MAC!! Micah

I know for a fact they had it in at QFC (Harvard Mkt) last week when I stared at it for a while. But in bigger news, Dog & Pony Pub down in Renton is having a Brewer's Night with the fellas from Oskar Blues this Thursday the 27th, from 7-9. Dog & Pony is a great little pub, and if anybody's up for swingin' past there on that day, gimme a call (before then, okay?).
