Longmont, CO & Brevard, NC — First there were kegs of draft. Then 6-packs rolled up and out. Next came an expanded mixed 12-pack, aka the PINNERtrated CANundrum hotbox. Now party 12-packs filled with 12-ounce CANs of juicy, crushable PINNER are lighting up shelves across the nation, building on the wild success of the draft, 6ers, and mixed 12s. So many different ways to get pinned.

Here’s what a few folks who drink beer have said about Oskar Blue Brewery’s newest brew:

“A verdant aroma preps the palate for a front-to-back hop onslaught: Resiny pine, fresh-cut grass, sweet onion and light woody flavor flow harmoniously over the tongue as one cohesive, delicious sip.” -Kate Bernot, DRAFT Magazine

“This IPA is light and low in potency, coming in at only 4.9% ABV – without sacrificing the flavors and aromas you’ve come to expect from the line of great Oskar Blues beers.” -Uncrate.com

“It should hit you right in the face, as soon as you smell the beer…Having a beer with that very orange-y, citrus aroma that has been called ‘kind bud.’ We enjoy it – and it resonates with our customers, who enjoy it as well.” -Oskar Blues Soul Founder Dale Katechis in The Denver Post

“But even if Oskar Blues wasn’t bludgeoning us over the head to make sure we’re in on the joke, you might very well have cracked it open and noticed that the beer smells remarkably like bud.” -FirstWeFeast.com

There’s not much more we can say, except PINNER comes in at 4.9 percent ABV and 35 IBUs, making it easy to throw back a few on a hot summer day. That’s only one reason a 12-pack of this smooth, crisp, dry-hopped beer is a great bet for barbecues, trailside picnics, and beach adventures. Look for new new 12-packs of PINNER wherever you buy carry-out beer.


Founded as a funky little brewpub by Dale Katechis in 1997, Oskar Blues Brewery launched the craft beer-in-a-can apocalypse 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, Dale’s Pale Ale, added a brewery in Longmont, ColoRADo. The brewery has since experienced explosive growth-from packaging 59,000 barrels of beer in 2011 to 149,000 barrels in 2014. In December 2012, Oskar Blues opened the doors to an expansion brewery in Brevard, North Carolina. Oskar Blues has continued craft can innovation by releasing OLD CHUB NITRO as the first American NITRO craft beer-in-a-can and introducing the CROWLER as a canned off-premise growler alternative.  The innovative, original canned craft brewery now distributes trail-blazing craft brews to 42 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., as well as parts of Canada, Sweden, and the U.K. For more information and social media visit http://www.oskarblues.com.
