BEERITO's complex malt bill includes Weyermann Specialty and
Northern Colorado's Troubadour Malts.
The hallmark of this beer is the complexity of its deeply developed malt bill, which includes Weyermann Barke Vienna, Carabelge, Melanoidin, and Colorado's own Troubadour Blue Ballad malt. Oskar Blues steps into the fray very early working with barley breeders and maltsters to travel to the fields of Colorado, Montana, Alberta, England, and Germany collaborating on barley varieties and malting processes to express the deepest of flavor complexities.
The process expands on the long standing relationship with Weyermann Specialty Malts, a leader in environmental stewardship and sustainability in the malt world, while strengthening a growing relationship with Northern Colorado's Troubadour Malting. That relationship started with a special holiday release called "One of the Days", brewed with the first harvest of Genie Barley in Northern Colorado. The depth of aroma, flavor and mouthfeel in this beer all benefit from the skill of the Maltster. Finally, subtle floral, spicy notes from the French Aramis hop and German Hallertauer Mittelfrueh hop tie the brew together.
BEERITO launch parties will take place at both Tasty Weasel Taproom locations in Longmont, Colorado and Brevard, North Carolina on April 8th.
BEERITO Mexican Lager is available nationwide in 6-packs, 12-packs and draft. Learn more at www.oskarblues.com.
