Founded in 2010, the brewery has grown exponentially over the years. And they’ve a lager that took first place out of 231 entries at the 2022 World Beer Cup.

High Times (Longmont, CO) – When Dale Katechis, the founder of Oskar Blues Brewery joined the team at Veritas Fine Cannabis Colorado’s original craft cannabis company last year, fans started drooling over the idea of a beer and bud collaboration. After all, both cannabis and hops stem from the same plant family, so yeah this had to happen. And now the wait is over.
Launching in tandem with a line of co-branded products from Veritas Fine Cannabis, Oskar Blues Veritasty is an uber-dank 7% ABV IPA that was inspired by terpenes found in Veritas’ extensive cannabis strain library.
“We took a completely different approach to the hemp beers that have been brewed before,” said Juice Drapeau, Head Brewer at Oskar Blues Brewery. “Instead of using hemp terpenes to cover up the hops that make IPAs great, we paired naturally occurring terpenes in hop strains with naturally occurring terpenes in cannabis strains from Veritas.”
