Oskar Blues Brewery - [Press Release] LYONS, Colo., July 14, 2016 – Bayside, who release their new album, Vacancy, on Aug. 19 via Hopeless Records, have partnered with craft-beer-in-a-can brewery Oskar Blues for a limited edition IPA, Bayside Black IPA. The beer, which features a malty backbone with bright, citrusy hops, will be limited to 100 barrels and available for a pre-order bundle with the new album via Craftshack (availability restricted to participating states). The cans will also be available at Total Wine & More, as well as select venues with a special focus on stores/venues along Bayside’s tour (dates below). “The challenges of creating a Black IPA is that when creating a recipe, one has to be very careful to balance the hop bitterness and malt bitterness,” Oskar Blues’ Head Brewer at Oskar Blues Brewery Lyons Juice Drapeau explains. “Dark malts can have astringent characteristics to them so the key is to really achieve a clean hop bitterness to compliment the potential malt bitterness. Also, another important aspect of Black IPAs is to layer a variety of crystal malts and dark malts so that the malt character in the beer has a lot of depth and complexity.” ### - Located at: 1800 Pike Road, Longmont, CO.
