Oskar Blues

Canning has become a bit of a craze in the UK and beyond and it’s pretty much down to these guys being right out there on the cutting edge in 2002 – yes 2002… Cans keep beer fresher for longer by eliminating the damaging effects of light and oxygen whist being infinitely recyclable and looking proper cool at the same time. Oskar Blues have made an artform out of canning and are cited as being one of the most influential breweries in the US because of it – and of course because of the beer that’s in the cans.

Dale’s pale is Oskar Blues’ masterwork and rightly the flagship beer of this vibrant brewery, a full bodied Pale Ale malt profile is melded with what OB describe as ‘voluminous’ hopping. It’s a riot of pine and tropical fruits alongside a firm caramel malt body – it’s a classic and a no brainer at the bar.

Even more exciting and sitting in our chilled storage right now is the highly rated Death By Coconut a deeply nutty, silky smooth porter with loads of well balanced chocolate and coconut flavours.

Also in stock right now is the utterly smashable IPA – made with a bunch of fruity Antipodean Enigma, Vic Secret, Ella, and Topaz hops. It’s smooth and dank with pine, pineapple, citrus and waves of tropical fruits heading towards a tidy bitter finish.

Oh and also they make a brilliant root beer that we have managed to secure ultra limited supplies of and they make bikes which we haven’t ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
