7 Seas, Wingman, Maui, Kona, Redhook; are you sensing a pattern?
What do these breweries all have in common? If you answered canned beer, you would be correct. However they weren't the first craft brewery to produced canned beers, in fact one of the first to arrive in the Northwest was Oskar Blues.
With names like Ten Fiddy, Mama's Lil Yellow Pils, or Old Chub; Oskar Blues has inspired breweries and craft beer advocates to take beer in their backpacks on hikes, camping trips, or tailgating.
Starting at around 6pm you are encouraged to say hey to O.B. Brewing's newest employee, Erik Carels. If the face seems familiar it's mostly because you probably saw him pouring beers at festivals and tasting throughout the area, for Snoqualmie Falls Brewing. Seizing the opportunity to change his business cards and stationary to somewhere in Colorado, Erik is stopping by Beer Authority to remind people what canned craft beer tastes like.
Stop by and ask him about the limited edition Old Chub aged in Stranahan's Whiskey barrels as well as what it's like to work for a brewery that once employed Beer Authority owner Burc McFarlen.
