Oskar Blues will open its new tasting room, the Tasty Weasel, at 11 a.m. this Friday, February 13, inside its brewing and canning plant in Longmont. At 4 p.m., the Weasel will tap a firkin (roughly a quarter of a barrel) of something to celebrate the grand opening. In fact, Oskar Blues plans to bust into a firkin every Friday at 4 p.m.
The room, at 1800 Pike Road, seats fifty people and serves draughts of the brewery's year-round creations as well as specials, like a beer aged in whiskey barrels supplied by Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey. Regular tasting-room hours are 3 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
