EVENT – Oskar Blues Night At Mohawk House

5793211885 c25c80b39c z EVENT   Oskar Blues Night At Mohawk HouseLast Thursday, I attended an Oskar Blues tasting night at Mohawk House. If you aren’t familar with the name, they are one of Colorado’s premier breweries and the first craft brewery in the US to distribute their product in cans. If you are familiar, then you know their flagship beer – Dale’s Pale Ale – of which I am a huge fan. With the exception of Gubna, Oskar Blues brought out their full line up of canned goodness on draft: Ten Fidy Stout, Mama’s Little Yella Pils, Dale’s Pale Ale, Old Chub and G’Knight.

I don’t think there was one person that got by Matt without trying some Oskar Blues. The fan favorite of the evening was Mama’s Little Yella Pils – a perfect solution to quench your thirst on a cool June evening.

And so we come to the close of yet another beer tasting event. With no bands playing I found this had to be one of the most relaxing beer tastings I have been to yet. It was nice chatting with Scott from Hunterdon and Matt from Oskar Blues, and I hope we can link up when I head out to Denver in September for Great American Beer Fest. Big thanks to the Mohawk House for playing host to this event; it was a fine evening.
