Photos: The largest-ever Oskar Blues display takes over Argonaut

This morning, employees of Argonaut and Longmont-based Oskar Blues arranged 1,000 twelve-packs of Oskar Blues beer into an enormous -- what else? -- beer can-shaped display at the store, the largest in the brewery's history. While the stack is up (through February 22), Oskar Blues is running a couple of contests: Winners can take home everything from some sweet sticks from Denver's Icelantic Skis (which also collaborated on a beer with Oskar Blues this year that's currently available at Old Chicago), an Oskar Blues jacket, a ski pass to Copper Mountain, or a case of Dale's Pale Ale every month for a year. The special $13.99 price per twelve-pack runs through Super Bowl Sunday. Continue reading for pictures and more information.
