Oskar Blues Brewery is taking over production of the distillerâ€™s wash for Stranahanâ€™s Colorado Whiskey in Denver. Oskar Blues will make about 3,000 gallons of Stranahanâ€™s wash each week in its Longmont facility. Stranahanâ€™s will purchase the wash and truck it to its Denver distillery.
Stranahanâ€™s had been making its Straight Rocky Mountain Whiskey from distillerâ€™s wash provided by Flying Dog Brewery in Denver. In January, Flying Dog shifted all its brewing to Frederick, Md.
“This is a very big deal for us,” said Oskar Blues founder Dale Katechis. “Jess and his team are whiskey mavericks, theyâ€™re doing for whiskey what craft brewers have done for beer. Theyâ€™ve proven that with guts, talent and a blind eye to the status quo, one can make whiskey as good as any out there.”
Oskar Blues and Stranahanâ€™s intend to develop various cross-promotional programs to highlight their collaboration.

Whiskey made from Oskar Blues leftovers?! I might just become a whiskey drinker. Glad to hear that OB’s new facility is already starting to pay dividends.
I’ve been to the old Flying Dog. the whiskey from Stranhans could easily make you a convert. maybe Oskars will make a whiskey barrel aged stout.
In response to your comment “Whiskey made from Oscar Blues leftovers?! “, I just wanted to interject. I am the head distiller of Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, and I can assure you we do not use any ‘leftovers’. We have hired OB to brew our recipe to our specs. It is a 100% malted barley wash made of 4 different barley. It is a first quality product and contains no byproducts or cast offs. We chose OB to brew our wash because of their quality and commitment to excellence. I encourage you to try Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, it will definitely “make you a whiskey drinker.” Cheers Jake
Barrel aged ten fiddy!!!!!!!!!
At the end of the day, business is business. This looks like a good venture, i wish them both the best of luck
