Calling all aspiring brewers (or brewers looking to have a fun time on a competitor’s dime), Oskar Blues is throwing one hell of a shindig at the Great American Beer Festival. They have partnered with Draft Magazine for Ordeal, three jam-packed days of events offering GABF-ers and craft beer lovers the chance to go backstage at ALL Oskar Blues locations during Great American Beer Festival week. In addition, Oskar Blues and Draft Magazine are upping the ante and offering one national winner and a guest an all-expenses-paid trip to the Ordeal, which includes two days of tickets to GABF.
This on-can program is featured on 8 million Dale’s Pale Ale cans — currently available in all 44 states in which Oskar Blues beer is distributed. Anyone can sign up to win, at http://draftmagazine.com/ordeal for free from now until Sept. 8.
The national winner will receive the following: Free airfare for two; three nights of accommodations; two days of tickets to the Great American Beer Festival; and two days of Oskar Blues Ordeal bus tickets.

On both Friday and Saturday, Oskar Blues picks up Ordealers outside of the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center and shows them around its digs in Longmont and Lyons, and then everyone will spend some time hanging at OB’s Hops and Heifers Farm. Oskar Blues will serve up classic and specialty Oskar Blues beers all day and keep Ordealers well-fed with BBQ and Cajun-style meals. Surprises of the beer variety lurk around each corner throughout the Oskar Blues universe.
