Oskar Blues Surges To Nearly 200,000 Barrels In 2015

January 20, 2016

Colorado-based Oskar Blues Brewery achieved 30% sales growth for 2015. Production also rose, up from around 149,000 barrels in 2014 to 192,000 barrels last year, split between the brewer’s Longmont, Colorado facility (102,000 barrels) and Brevard, North Carolina site (90,000 barrels). Sales growth was driven primarily by the core Dale’s Pale Ale, which grew 43% year over year. Pinner Throwback IPA, Oskar Blues IPA and the CANundrum Mixed 12-Pack also posted strong gains.

Oskar Blues—whose reach currently spans 45 U.S. markets—has also announced plans to achieve distribution in all 50 states by mid-2016. The news comes as the brewer begins the second phase of its Brevard brewery expansion project—which will bring the facility’s capacity to more than 200,000 barrels—and preps the opening of a third brewery and music venue in Austin, Texas.
