Oskar Blues and NOLA Brewing team up and can The Wolf and The Lamb

Longmont, CO & Brevard, NC. - Oskar Blues Brewery and NOLA Brewing teamed up to create a limited release collaBREWation in honor of the historic New Orleans Jazz Fest

The creation involved a daylong brewing session with the NOLA and Oskar Blues teams at the brewery in Longmont, ColoRADo. The result: The Wolf and The Lamb. The crews teamed up to double up the Double Pilsner style, cranking out a 7% super-pale lager packed with Pilsner malt and loaded with Czech Agnes and Styrian Wolf hops. Crisp and spicy aromas dotted with floral, sage-like undertones of berries, pineapple, and citrus. A slightly bready medium bodied lager flavor continues the European hop onslaught with more herbal and spicy fruity character.

Oskar Blues and NOLA Brewing share a mutual love of music and wanted to create something that embodied the people, passion, and spirit of Jazz Fest. Part of the project was to engage a local artist to create custom artwork for the can. J. Pierre is a legendary Louisiana artist whose work has been featured in Essence Magazine, HBO's Treme, House of Deréon, and in the Mayor of Louisiana's office. J. Pierre utilizes his strong command over mediums such as oil, acrylic, pen, ink, aerosol, and house paint to create a print as vibrant and soulful as the Louisiana culture.  

In addition to members from the breweries, the collaboration beer and twenty special edition "The Wolf and the Lamb" signed and numbered giclee prints will be available from J. Pierre on 100lb hot press paper at the following events:

-Avenue Pub 4/20 (Wednesday) @ 4:20pm

-The Bulldog Uptown 4/20 (Wednesday) @ 7pm

-World of Beer Warehouse District 4/21 (Thursday) @ 7pm

-Howlin Wolf  4/23 (Saturday) @ 8pm

-Maison on Frenchmen St. 4/24 (Sunday) @ 8pm

Oskar Blues has been a long-time fan of NOLA Brewing as the first craft-beer-in-a-can brewery in New Orleans and stream of quality beers brewed with love in New Orleans. This partnership marks Oskar Blues one-year anniversary in the Louisiana market.

The brew will be available for a limited time in Colorado and Louisiana markets so get it while you CAN.

About NOLA Brewing

NOLA Brewing Company, a craft brewery founded in 2008 in New Orleans, makes high quality beers for every palate, from the craft beer neophyte to the aficionado. With each beer we brew, our hope is that it lives up to the standards of the city we call home - no small task. Our brewing philosophy is simple: we brew beers that we want to drink, using the best ingredients available. NOLA Brewing was conceived in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when the number of commercial brewers in New Orleans was zero. Now years later, we're proud to have played a part in the development of what has become a formidable local craft brewing industry. NOLA Brewing is located at 3001 Tchoupitoulas Street and online at nolabrewing.com, and on Facebook.com/NOLABrewing and is @NOLABrewing on Instagram and Twitter.
