Happy CANniversary! Oskar Blues celebrates one-year anniversary tonight with music, tiny Elvis museum


Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard is throwing a big party tonight to celebrate the one-year anniversary of its East Coast brewery. The event will include music by This Mountain and Soldier’s Heart, a book signing by John Holl, a touring Elvis museum called Tiny E’s: The World’s Smallest Elvis Museum, food trucks, specialty beers, swag, a bonfire and much more. It’s gonna be a great time. The event is free.

The Oskar Blues brewery in Brevard has been kicking ass since it opened last December. The brewery recently added more capacity to make beer as demand has grown. Here’s a tidbit from an OB press release:

Oskar Blues Brewery experienced 40 percent growth in 2013, thanks in part to the East Coast expansion. In October, the brewery hit the 100,000 barrel mark for the year, with 40,000 of those barrels brewed in North Carolina and distributed to 16 East Coast states. More than 9.2 million CANs have gone out the door of the NC brewery in 10 months of distribution.

Oskar Blues also will celebrate on the day of 12/12/13 (one year since the first NC mash-in) at the Tasty Weasel Tap Room with live music from This Mountain and Soldier’s Heart, a book signing with beer writer John Holl of The American Craft Beer Cookbook, and a bouncy house for the kids. Free and open to the public.
