The Festival was inspired by the newest Oskar Blues Beer, The Oskar Blues IPA, which features an all Australian Hop Lineup including: Vic’s Secret, Ella, Galaxy, Topaz, and Enigma. The Festival however, will include hops from not only Australia, but also, South Africa and New Zealand as well.
Oskar Blues has confirmed around 20 craft breweries signed on to showcase their beers in the fest. Each brewery has created two Southern Hemisphere Beers, some specifically for the event itself, and event attendees will get the chance to sample each one and vote on their favorite. The winning beer will be placed on tap at Stoney’s for a full month. Because Southern Hemisphere Hops are still incredibly hard to find, Oskar Blues Director of Brewing Operations, Tim Matthews, helped many of the breweries source the hops for the beers showcased.
Aside from the Oskar Blues IPA, OB will offer two other Southern Hemisphere Hop beers at the fest – IceyPA, a collaboration with Denver-based Icelantic skis. For this brew, the brewers turned to New Zealand’s more herbaceous hop offerings in Pacific Gem, Rakau, Nelson Sauvin and Dr. Rudi. KOALAfied IPA is a new Belgo IPA with a deep ruby red malt color and loaded with Ella, South African, and Galaxy Hops at around 40 IBU and an ABV of 8-9%.
The fest will offer early access to VIP attendees starting at 6:00pm, GA will open up at 7:00pm and run until 10:00pm on February 27th. The VIP attendees will also be given a chance to taste some Southern Hemisphere foods provided by Stoney’s Bar and Grill. Live music from Boulder based funk band, Hot Soup, will kick off at 9:30pm. There will also be a booth onsite where attendees can check out actual Southern Hemisphere hops – as well as some American hops – so you can getchyer hands dirty and experience the difference. Brewers will also be on hand to answer questions as well.

Our buds at Budweiser are at it again. Not content to leave its first round of unlicked wounds from last year alone, Anheuser- Busch InBev was once again throwing punches in Super Bowl 50 and picking up where last year’s anti- craft beer Super Bowl Advertising left off.
In Super Bowl XLIX last year, Budweiser emphasized that its beer was “Brewed the Hard Way.” The company poked fun at craft beer drinkers and proclaimed they would “let them sip their pumpkin peach ale”, while they, the macro brew drinkers of the world, would continue to pound can after can of Budweiser, the beer supposedly brewed the American [Read more…]
