Oskar Blues Ordeal & Hops and Heifers Barn Burner and Pig Roast
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM (MDT)
For the past two years, Oskar Blues has put on the “Oskar Blues Ordeal” bus trips during GABF week which offers GABF-goers and craft beer lovers the chance to go backstage at all of our locations and check out what we’re all about.
So here’s how it works:
We’ll pick you up outside of the Falling Rock Tap House in Denver and show you around our digs in Longmont and Lyons, and we’ll even get all ColoRADo on ya and show you around our Hops and Heifers Farm.
We’re serving up classic and specialty Oskar Blues beers all day and best believe we’ll keep you well fed with BBQ and Cajun-style meals throughout each day.
Wednesday, October 9th
Oskar Blues Ordeal and Hops and Heifers Barn Burner Pig Roast – 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Ordeal events kick-off on Wednesday with Ten FIDY Handshakes at the newest Oskar Blues restaurant, CHUBurger. From there, we’re serving up a Cajun-style lunch menu at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids and buying you two 10 oz. Oskar Blues beers, but feel free to try any one of the 43 craft beers on draft. A backstage tour of Oskar Blues Brewery and more beers are happening at the Tasty Weasel tap room, then it’s time for the main event. To kick off the Great American Beer Festival in style, we’re throwing a Barn Burner and Pig Roast at the Hops and Heifers Farm. Live music, plenty of food, specialty beers, a bon fire and ridiculously awesome views of the Flatirons are happening from 5-8 p.m. that night. Wednesday’s Ordeal schedule starts at 11 a.m. and we’ll drop you back off outside of the Falling Rock Tap House at 9 p.m.
