Colorado's Oskar Blues Brewery Expands

Chalk up another expansion for a Colorado Brewer. As 2008 has ushered in, so will soon a new era for the Lyons Colorado Oskar Blues Brewery. Business has been so good over their 5-year history that the now famous craft beer in a can maker has got to expand. Already during this last year, the small mountain town brewer has come out with their 4th beer (Ten FIDY Imperial Stout) in their line of hand canned facility / restaurant and a new 35,000 square foot facility will be added in nearby Longmont, Colorado to help with the growing demand for their beer. I've personally visited Oskar Blues 2 years ago and tried one of their fresh brews on tap (One Nut Brown Ale) along with some yummy food. I plan on reviewing some of their canned craft beers in the near future. I look forward to seeing even more innovative brews from them in the future. Production at the new facility should begin in March 2008.
