Oskar Blues debuts new tasting room Tasty Weasel

I've wondered how long it would take before this would happen, but it finally has. Oskar Blues has been brewing in it's new brewing facility in Longmont for less than a year now but up until now you couldn't taste any of their beers at that building. But now you can. (No pun intended)

As of this Friday, Oskar Blues will open their brand new Tasty Weasel Tasting Room at the new brewing building at 1800 Pike Road in Longmont. Below is a news release from a newsletter emailed out today:

The Tasty Weasel, Oskar Blues' new tasting room will be tapping kegs to kick off our opening this Friday the 13th, 11am to 8 pm. In addition to kegs, we'll be starting our Firkin Friday celebrations by offering a different Firkin each Friday. The Tasty Weasel is located inside our new brewing facility on the corner of Sunset & Pike in Longmont. Just down the street from our future beer bar we'll be offering an insiders view into our beers & the people behind them. Final hours of operation are still up in the air, but we are estimating 7 days a week 11am to 8pm. Keep an eye on our website for updates on current hours. Come join us at the Tasty Weasel as we open our doors to you!

The Tasty Weasel will have room to seat 50 thirsty visitors. The door is located on the east side of the facility. The room will offer fresh pours from their facility as well as some whiskey barrel aged treats and other surprises. Firkins will be tapped every Friday afternoon at 4pm. Rumor has it that their real hours will be Monday - Friday 3-8pm and Saturady - Sunday 11am - 8pm.

During my tour of the facility last fall, the interior of the building still had quite a bit of space left for such a room. There was a half basketball court and a batting cage area set up inside, but I imagine that one of those areas have been converted into the Tasty Weasel.

So not only will there be an on-site tasting room, but soon there will also be a future Oskar Blues restaurant as well. Chalk up another good reason to visit Longmont during the afternoon or early evening.
