Oskar Blues is resuming sales, of their award-winning beer, to thirsty drinkers in Idaho.
Oskar Blues has announced a re-introduction of their canned craft beer to their northern neighbors of Idaho with CSB Craig Stein Beverage. The partnership represents a victory for Oskar Blues & Idaho craft beer lovers after seeing Oskar Blues pull beer out of the state as demand outpaced supply during 2011.
“The bike scene and single track along with Payette, Boise and Salmon River access reminds us of why we brew beer in Lyons, CO & Brevard, NC and we started canning beer in 2002. It’s a great fit for our passion for the outdoors and complex craft beer-in-a-can” says Oskar Blues founder Dale Katechis.
This week, starting on Tuesday, the brewery is launching a 3 day campaign to remind you the taste of Dale’s Pale Ale, G’Night Imperial Red IPA, Mama's Little Yella Pils, or Old Chub Scottish Ale.

About Oskar Blues Brewery
Founded as a brewpub by Dale Katechis in 1997, Oskar Blues Brewery launched the original craft beer-in-a-can with Dale’s Pale Ale in 2002 using a tabletop machine that sealed one can at a time. In 2008, the makers of the top-selling pale ale in ColoRADo moved into a 35,000-square-foot facility in Longmont, ColoRADo. The brewery has since experienced explosive growth—packaging 59,000 barrels of beer in 2011 and 86,750 barrels in 2012. In December of 2012, Oskar Blues opened the doors to an additional brewery in Brevard, North Carolina . Together, the breweries packaged over 119,000 barrels of beer in 2013, distributing its trailblazing craft brews to 32 U.S. states.
