This from Oskar Blues:

Colorado Craft Beer Week kicks off on Friday, March 21st and Colorado-based craft brewery,Oskar Blues, is celebrating with the release of three collaboration beers— all concocted and brewed up with fellow brethren-in-beer at Shamrock Brewing Co. (Pueblo, CO), La Cumbre Brewing Co. (Albuquerque, NM), and St. Archer Brewing Co. (San Diego, CA).

The following specialty beers will make their debut on Saturday, March 22nd at the Colorado Brewers Guild’s inaugural Collaboration Festival at the Curtis Hotel in Denver, CO.

Saturday’s Collaboration Festival will also be the first time consumers will have the chance to get their hands on the Centennial Pale Ale—a collaboration beer brewed up by over 140 Colorado Brewers Guild members at the Oskar Blues brewery last month. The official collaboration beer for the 2014 Craft Brewers Conference will be served in 16 oz. cans at the CBC in April marking the first time a CBC collaboration beer has been packaged in a can instead of a bottle.

In addition to collaborating with other breweries to create new flavors, Oskar Blues brewers have also been executing collaborations with ingredient makers in the industry.

Briess Malt & Ingredients Co. contributed caramel rye and Hopunion provided hops for Oskar Blues Lyons head brewer, Jason Buehler, to create his Cry Me A Rye’ver Roggenbier and the Expalemental Pale Ale; two beers that’ll also be served up at this year’s Craft Brewers Conference.

Oskar Blues Longmont head brewer, Tim Matthews, has also been hard at work putting the final touches on The Full Pint Strong Ale—a beer brewed with a special barley variety called “The Full Pint”. This unique ingredient is the outcome of collaboration between the brewer, the grower (Sayer & Son, LLC – http://sayerson.wordpress.com/ ), and the maltster (Colorado Malting Company – http://www.coloradomaltingcompany.com/ )—marking the first time this barley has been used on a commercial level.

“Collaborations within the industry are such a great thing. It’s awesome to see different people bring different things to the table, creating a unique and complex end product each time,” Matthews said.
