[1/30 Update: The beer will be released on March 1. "Our upcoming new canned good is a small-batch version of the beer that made Pilsen, Czechoslovakia famous. Mama’s is made with hearty amounts of pale malt, German specialty malts, and a blend of traditional (Saaz) and 21st century Bavarian hops. Our first canned lager, it’s also fermented at cool temperatures with a German yeast. This tasteful reality Czech is the perfect antidote for the watered-down versions of pilsner clogging America’s shelves. And Mama’s gentle hopping (about 35 IBUs) and low ABV (just 5.3%) mean we’re finally honoring consumer requests for a delicious but less-challenging beer. (Hey, we like a good low-dose session beer, too.) Look for our Gold Metal Winner on US shelves in March. Sadly, the Feds rejected our “Take Two and Call Us in the Morning” line on the can."]
(Lyons, CO) – Oskar Blues Brewery is poised to release its fifth beer in cans in 2009 (may be missing a couple “limiteds” but only ones I’ve seen are Gordon, Dale, Old Chub, and Ten Fidy).
Mama’s Little Yella Pils
came out a couple years ago on tap, went on hiatus, and then finally started to appear at bars around the country this past fall and is still on tap in some areas. An email is out to the brewery to see if I can get a hint on release timing.
