Oskar Blues launched distribution of their line-up of boundary busting canned craft beer throughout the United Kingdom via Vertical Drinks Distribution in October. To support the United Kingdom launch Oskar Blues brewed a collaboration beer with Scotland’s Brew Dog Brewery & set up a four-stop pub crawl & bike ride (Aberdeen, New Castle, Leeds & London) to introduce Oskar Blues brews at Brew Dog Pub Locations.   The “Shipwrecker Circus” collaboration beer is a bold American-Style Barleywine available throughout the UK.

About Oskar Blues Brewery

Founded by Dale Katechis in 1997 as a brewpub and grill, Oskar Blues Brewery launched its craft-brewed beer canning operations in 2002 in Lyons, Colo. It was the first American craft brewery to brew and hand-can its beer. Today there are more than 200 craft breweries canning beer. The original crew used a hand-canning line on a tabletop machine that sealed one can at a time. Oskar Blues Brewery in Longmont packaged 59,000 barrels in 2011 and grew to 85,750 in 2012 while opening an additional brewery in Brevard, NC, in late 2012.

    I had a chance to try the Brew Dog / Oskar Blues collaboration brew Shipwreckers Circus while touring the Brew Dog brewery in Ellon. I was privileged to have been given a bottle prior to it being released. I had to use a wine glass since the B&B in Ellon had very few options for glassware. Cheers!
