Proceeds of New Oskar Blues SMASH to Support National #BrewStacheStrong Campaign for Brain Cancer Research

Oskar Blues Brewery announces the taproom-only release of S.M.A.S.H. for Stache (6.9% ABV), a double dry-hopped, heavily Sabro-infused SMaSH (stands for “single malt and single hop”) IPA. A portion of proceeds from sales of S.M.A.S.H. for Stache will benefit StacheStrong, an organization that raises funds for brain cancer research. S.M.A.S.H. for Stache will be available on draft and in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans starting May 1 at all Oskar Blues taprooms – Longmont and Boulder, CO; Brevard, NC; and Austin, TX, locations.

In S.M.A.S.H. for Stache IPA, award-winning Pale Genie malt, donated by Root Shoot malting, plays nice with a LArGE amount of Sabro hops. Sabro shows off with flashy notes of tangerine, lime, pineapple and coconut with hints of mint and cedar. S.M.A.S.H. for Stache IPA will be available during the month of May, Brain Cancer Awareness Month, while supplies last.

StacheStrong is a 501(c)3 charity devoted to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. For the first time, 150+ breweries all over the nation are brewing beers to battle brain cancer alongside StacheStrong as part of the inaugural #BrewStacheStrong program. Oskar Blues has supported StacheStrong since 2018 and is proud to participate in this year’s initiative among some of the nation’s most esteemed craft breweries.

Oskar Blues Head Brewer Juice Drapeau said, “We’ve been brewing SMaSH beers over the last four years as a way to R&D new hop varieties to see how they translate in a finished product. The Sabro Hop variety was a huge hit with staff and a fan favorite so we decided to rock this out for our friends at StacheStrong.”
