At any rate, they are both top notch brews.
you know, we tried it tonight, and i dont know if i found it extremely grainy. i found it to linger on the back of my tongue, which is not totally 100% pleasant, but i cant complain, for i find this beer to be a good one. all in all, i am a happy customer.


Oskar Blues Old chub- where is this coming from? can i get it in FL? east or west coast?

I recently read an article about the can movement and the future of cans. I think it was in Beer Advocate mag--anyway it had some really interesting info in it. I think you'll start to see more microbrews getting kegged in the future.

Oskar Blues makes Dales and Gordon. If you can find those, you can find Old Chub. FWIW, you can buy Old Chub chapstick at the Oskar Blues site. LOL.

Oskar Blues' beers are amazing....and they aren't nearly as expensive out here. 12'ers of Old Chub and Dale's Pale Ale (named after the brewmaster) are usually on sale for $10.99/12'er, Gordons (their strong ale/Imperial IPA) is expensive, it is like $9 for 4 cans, but it is great.

If you are reading this, and see any of their beers, don't let the cans turn you off, buy them, pour them into a pint glass if you can, and drink! They are great out of the cans too though if you find yourself in the woods and none are available.

Cans can be good and bad. Some beers taste have a give you a hint of metalic at the back of the throat. There is something nice about drinking out of glass though. My cheap store bought tipple (cascade draught) also comes in bottles (both 375ml and 800ml) but for space in the recycling bin it is good to be able to crush them down!

Well I'm going to give it a shot but how do we reuse the cans for home brew?

My pishhead mate takes his once a year to the scrap yard and gets scrap value for them. He got $120 this trip. About 120 Kilos of cans. Don't work it out, you do not want to know how many cans that is! He bought three cartons on the way back via the pub!

Oskar Blues definitely has some tasty beers.....the chub is a favorite of mine.

We also have a local craft brewery pushing beer into a can:

Got a sixer in the fridge in the garage just in case I need to go somewhere and drink out of a can. It goes great with this Lexan Pils glass when hiking.



The base unscrews and nests in the top. $6 from REI.
