Oskar Blues to open new Longmont tap room

Oskar Blues recently expanded their brewing operations in Longmont, Colorado but now they will also be expanding their restaurant and tap room facilities into Longmont as well.

According to an article in the Longmont Times-Call on January 7th, 2009, Oskar Blues has selected a site in Longmont to build another restaurant and tap room. The site is located near the streets of Ken Pratt (Hwy 119) and Hover where the old Silo Bar & Grill used to be.

Not only will all of the Oskar Blues fine beers be featured but also selected beers from around the area. The food will once again feature a Cajun flavor as well as some classic American food.

Marty Jones, spokesman for Oskar Blues, says Oskar Blues wants to build upon the growing beer culture of Longmont. According to fan reactions, Longmont residents are eager to have another original restaurant come to town.

Opening a new restaurant and tap room is these tough economic times is taking a big risk, but Oskar Blues feels that the time was right for them to expand. They feel Longmont was ready for it. Besides, when they decided to put all their beer in cans 6 years ago, many thought they were nuts. But time has proven the skeptics wrong as Oskar Blues beer in a can is shipped to nearly half the states in the USA now.

No official word on when the new restaurant and tap room will open other than to say it will be coming soon.
