Oskar Blues Releases a Specialty Malt 'Stache With Beerito Mexican Lager

BEERITO's complex malt bill includes Weyermann Specialty and Northern Colorado's Troubadour Malts.


Longmont, CO & Brevard, NC
- Oskar Blues Brewery dives deep into raw ingredients with farmers and maltsters for the launch of BEERITO, a Vienna Mexican lager set to be released at the end of March. Oskar Blues' own malty sanchez, BEERITO, weighs in at 4.0% ABV and 21 IBUs.

The hallmark of this beer is the complexity of its deeply developed malt bill, which includes Weyermann Barke Vienna, Carabelge, Melanoidin, and Colorado's own Troubadour Blue Ballad malt. Oskar Blues steps into the fray very early working with barley breeders and maltsters to travel to the fields of Colorado, Montana, Alberta, England, and Germany collaborating on barley varieties and malting processes to express the deepest of flavor complexities.  

"The challenge in creating this beer was creating layers of complexities rather than an abundance of big flavor," said Tim Matthews, Oskar Blues' Head of Brewing Operations. "The result is a mild mouth coating with malt complexity, ranging from almonds, walnuts and bread crust, along with a refreshing hop note from noble hops."

The process expands on the long standing relationship with Weyermann Specialty Malts, a leader in environmental stewardship and sustainability in the malt world, while strengthening a growing relationship with Northern Colorado's Troubadour Malting. That relationship started with a special holiday release called "One of the Days", brewed with the first harvest of Genie Barley in Northern Colorado. The depth of aroma, flavor and mouthfeel in this beer all benefit from the skill of the Maltster. Finally, subtle floral, spicy notes from the French Aramis hop and German Hallertauer Mittelfrueh hop tie the brew together.

BEERITO launch parties will take place at both Tasty Weasel Taproom locations in Longmont, Colorado and Brevard, North Carolina on April 8th. 

BEERITO Mexican Lager is available nationwide in 6-packs, 12-packs and draft.  Learn more at www.oskarblues.com
