BREVARD, NC—Oskar Blues Brewery, creator of the first American craft beer in a can, will launch in Delaware with Standard Distributing Company, the state’s oldest and largest wholesale beer distributor.
Oskar Blues is bringing its award-winning beers on draft and in CANs to bars, restaurants, and retailers throughout Delaware beginning February 17. Launch events and parties are planned at select retail accounts throughout that week. More events will take place in late spring/early summer to introduce beach lovers to America’s favorite canned craft brews.
“The state of Delaware is a great fit for Oskar Blues’ passion for the outdoors, music, craft beer and our line-up of complex craft beer in a can,” says Chad Melis, Oskar Blues’ director of marketing. “We look forward to having our North Carolina-brewed beers reach into almost all corners of the Eastern seaboard.”
All of Oskar Blues boundary-busting beers will be available on draft and in cans. Dale’s Pale Ale, Mama’s Little Yella Pils, and Old Chub are in 12-ounce six and twelve packs and a mixed-pack called CANundrum. The Dale’s and the Mama’s also come in 19.2 single-serve Imperial pints—“stovepipe” CANs.
The Imperial brews, Deviant Dale’s and G’Knight Imperial Red are sold in 16-ounce four-packs. Seasonals Ten FIDY (fall/winter) and GUBNA (spring/summer) are available in 12-ounce four-packs.
