Oskar Blues' East Coast Expansion in Brevard, North Carolina

Oskar Blues' East Coast Expansion By Anne Fitten Glenn

Oskar Blues’ East Coast expansion brewery opened on 12/12/12 in the beautiful mountain town of Brevard, 33 miles west of famed beer city, Asheville. Why Brevard? Easy access to gnarly single-track in Pisgah National Forest for bike-centric staff and MTB-addict and Oskar Blues Soul Founder, Dale Katechis.

Both the first brew day (Dale’s Pale Ale, of course) and the Tasty Weasel Taproom opening took place on the same day as 200-barrel fermentation tanks were rolling in. Since then the brewery that was founded as funky brewpub in Lyons, Colorado in 1997, has grown explosively—the NC brewery packaged 65,000 barrels in 2014 and now sends cans labeled Brevard, North Carolina to 19 East Coast states (Oskar Blues distributes to 41 states).

The Tasty Weasel is open seven days a week from noon to 8 p.m., and until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The Weasel features 16 taps, including all of Oskar Blues regular line-up of brews plus specialty beers available only at the brewery. Beer lovers can also find live music three to four days a week (always on weekends) and the Oskar Blues CHUBwagon food truck serving farm to truck burgers and hand-cut fries every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Oskar Blues Brewery NC may be a little off the beer-beaten track in Western NC, but it’s a scenic back road trip from Sierra Nevada’s newly opened expansion brewery and right near lager specialist, Brevard Brewing Company.
