Where'd My Socks Go?

I don’t know and I don’t care. All I know is this kilt wearer knocked ‘em off.

Those of us blessed to be able to find Surly know that, nowadays, beer in a can doesn’t mean when you pop the top you’ll be opening up a can of crap. There are only a handful of others going the way of the can and honestly, that’s too bad. Cans prevent any damage caused by light making its way into a bottle and every once and a while you just might find yourself going somewhere that doesn’t allow glass. Especially with summer just around the corner. So if you’re going to one of those places you need to think about picking up some Oskar Blues.

Old Chub, brewed by Oskar Blues Brewery in Lyons, Colorado, is a Scottish style ale. Beautiful dark brunette, Old Chub is smooth enough to be easy drinking but busty enough to satisfy at 8% ABV. Available just across the border, Oskar Blues also make a fine Pale Ale by the name of Dale, his big brother is Gordon, is a nice hybrid strong ale and I’m inclined to believe the rumors that the heftiest of the clan, Ten Fidy Imperial Stout, will be as amazing as I have been led to believe.

  1. Solid, I've been wanting to try some of their beers for a while. Will have to try and find some next time I make it across the border.
