Oskar Blues Brewery makes burgers from beer leftovers

February 18, 2013

 This month, Longmont, Colo.-based Oskar Blues Brewery integrated its brewing and restaurant roots to open its fast-craft-casual restaurant, ChuBurger. Throughburger the Hops & Heifers farm, a venture that was inspired by Oskar Blues to integrate brewery outflows of spent grain, a potent protein mash, along with all-natural grass and hay to create a local, fresh plate, the restaurant serves its own all-natural, grass-fed, 100-percent Black Angus beef. The restaurant’s menu also features other local, natural options, such as the brewery’s canned beer.
