Longmont, CO & Brevard, NC. – Oskar Blues Brewery and NOLA Brewingteamed 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.
