The fifth annual Oskar Blues GABF Ordeal includes three fun days of events offering GABF-ers and craft beer lovers the chance to go backstage at ALL Oskar Blues locations during Great American Beer Festival week.
Tickets are available NOW for each of the Ordeal days on Wednesday, Friday and Friday (September 23, 25, and 26).
In addition, Oskar Blues is partnering with DRAFT Magazine to up the ante and offer three national winners an all-expenses paid for the Ordeal, which includes two days of tickets to GABF.
This on-can program is featured on eight million Dale’s Pale Ale cans–currently available in all 44 states in which Oskar Blues beer is distributed. Anyone can sign up to WIN, at http://draftmagazine.com/ordeal, for free, from now until September 8.
The national winners will receive the following: FREE airfare for two, plus three nights of accommodations; two days of tickets to the Great American Beer Festival; and two days of Oskar Blues Ordeal bus tickets.

On both Friday and Saturday, Oskar Blues picks up Ordealers outside of the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center in Denver and shows them around our digs in Longmont and Lyons, and then we get all ColoRADo and spend some time hanging at our Hops and Heifers Farm.
Oskar Blues will serve up classic and specialty Oskar Blues beers all day and keep Ordealers well-fed with BBQ and Cajun-style meals. Surprises of the beer variety lurk around each corner throughout the Oskar Blues universe.

About Oskar Blues Brewery
Founded as a funky little brewpub by Dale Katechis in 1997, Oskar Blues Brewery launched the craft beer-in-a-can apocalypse in 2002, using a tabletop machine that sealed one can at a time. In 2008, the makers of the top-selling pale ale in ColoRADo, Dale’s Pale Ale, added a brewery in Longmont, ColoRADo. The brewery has since experienced explosive growth–from packaging 59,000 barrels of beer in 2011 to 149,000 barrels in 2014. In December 2012, Oskar Blues opened the doors to an expansion brewery in Brevard, North Carolina. Oskar Blues has continued craft can innovation by introducing the CROWLER as a canned off-premise growler alternative. The innovative, original canned craft brewery now distributes trail-blazing craft brews to 44 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., as well as parts of Canada, Sweden, and the U.K. For more information and social media visit http://www.oskarblues.com.
