I loved their taphouse. The room is large and spacious with plenty of bar space and a number of tables. Our bartender was friendly, talkative, and helpful. Naturally they only have their own beers on tap, but when I went they had all seven mains beers, two seasonals, and five specialties. Great value. A flight of the main seven is only $7! A flight of the specialty was $15 (quite a bit more expensive), but considering their rarity and novelty, I think well worth it. The only food there was a giant barrel of peanuts, which was fine with me. They gave away free stickers and had about a dozen to choose from. Also, there’s a separate room where you can sit and drink your beer(s) right in front of part of their canning line. While I was sitting there, they were canning Mama’s Little Yella Pils. One of the brewers walked over, pulled a beer off the line before it could be sealed, and gave it to me for free. That alone rocketed the place to top two or three beer joints I’ve been to. I talked beer with the guy for a while and had a great time. If you find yourself in Longmont, make a point to stop by Oskar Blues taphouse. Great staff, great prices, and great selection. I’m not really sure how they could improve.
Great little spot if you love Oskar Blues. All of their regulars on tap plus a great variety of variations on the norm. Was able to try ginger pils from a cask and bourbon barrel Ten Fiddy. Favorite was the Smidy! Super friendly and knowledgeable staff and a great environment. Dying to go back.
OK, walked in and soaked up the aromatic hop infused wort that was in the air and felt right at home. I love the big seating area and long bar area with the fermenters looming overhead in the background as a boil kettle and mash tun are hard at work somewhere just out of site. Great vibe and feel here as it seems totally laid back and fun with great staff who did a stellar job at getting people what they were after despite the large crowd. I had a couple 10-Fidy variants that were outstanding. I would love to go here all the time. I guess the only gripe I had is that they make it a little difficult to know what beer was “on” as they had beers listed on the board that weren’t on yet and from 15ft away (and due to the crowd, no way to get closer) how could you know what was what. For me I would love to iron out this perceived deficiency with regular visits. With all the places I was able to visit while in town for GABF this one is at the top of my list the next time I’m in town.
This modern warehouse looking building hides one of the worlds premier microbreweries. They squeezed in a little tasting room that sells the real stuff plus souvenirs and hands out free peanuts. Very different atmosphere from their restaurant down the road.
The tasty weasel is unlike any brewery I’ve ever been to. Very welcoming, very spacious, with 2 different drinking areas, with plenty of games and space to walk around. And one of these drinking spaces gives you a full view of the canning operation. Very friendly staff who is willing to do impromptu private tours. OB doesn’t make too many different brews, which by default makes their "selection" on tap complete. But there’s always something kinky on tap as well. But it just feels too much like a friend’s basement. Which is cool if you like your friends basement. The beers are a tad expensive too.
