Founded as a brewpub by Dale Katechis in 1997, Oskar Blues Brewery launched the craft beer-in-a-can movement in 2002 using a tabletop machine that sealed a single can at a time. Oskar Blues has a history in motorsports that includes a close relationship with Charlotte Motor Speedway and sponsorships of a three car Sprint Car team, a Nationwide NASCAR and Rocky Mountain Motorsports’ Late Model car. Oskar Blues has two breweries in Longmont, CO and Brevard, NC, but the original Oskar Blues Grill and Brew remains in Lyons, CO. Oskar Blues Brewery is the largest craft brewer in the country that exclusively cans their beers.

“We are excited to be back at The Mint 400 as the official craft beer. Last year, the Mama’s Little Yella Pils can was a hit! We look to build on last year’s successes with two new commemorative cans that will surely become collector items. ‪Dale’s Pale Ale, America’s first craft-canned mountain Pale Ale, and our tasty ‪Pinner Throwback IPA fit perfectly with The Mint 400 experience,” stated Director of Sponsorships, Diana Ralston.

“Off-Road and beer go hand in hand. It’s the way we celebrate after a race. Our goal is to partner with products that add value to the Mint 400 experience. We came of age during the craft beer revolution – and are thrilled to be working with a true American beer company with such a wide selection of award winning brews. Oskar Blues and The Mint 400 are a fantastic match!” commented Mint 400 CEO, Matt Martelli.
