After a long drive to kick off our CO vacation on 07/24/13 we stopped at Oskar Blues Home Made Liquids and Solids at about 6pm. First I will say that happy hour(s) is from 3-6pm. The deals are great during that time, but...it makes parking very tight and brings the noise to an exceptionally high level. Once happy hour was over the place cleared out a bit and the noise level came down to a point where we could hear the much appreciated blues and classic blues rock.
I lucked into a parking place and seeing the bit silo outside got me a bit excited. We were greeted by friendly hostesses and seated promptly in a booth. There's a swag area by the entrance which makes it a bit hard to get to. You'll see lots of cool music and beer related items plastered all over the walls - some of it signed by celebs. The bar area isn't huge, but it's definitely cool with what seems like hundreds of tap handles hanging like stalactites from the ceiling. We were unaware of the patio so I didn't see it. The atmosphere is a fun comfortable roadhouse type vibe. They had all their regular brews plus a good sized menu of regionals and some others - something like 50 beers to choose from, but hey I'm there to drink OB.
You can see their menu on their website. They have specials every day - I had a delightful pesto salmon with garlic mashed potatoes and coleslaw. My wife's brisket was surprisingly tasty and my daughter's mac and cheese was crazy good. Our waitress was very pleasant and knowledgeable and the food was delivered quickly even though it was quite busy. She said the chicken wings are the best she's ever found and the burgers are her second favorite thing as the beef comes from OB's own farm. Note they also have the "Chuburger" joint a few blocks away. I hear their crab cakes are a big deal there too. I had a delectable Deviant Dale's and Gubna while taking it all in. Great beer, food, music, atmosphere, and service. I would be a regular if I lived there. Cheers y'all.

There are two Oskar Blues very close to each other and coming from out of town, the one on Pike is the first one we stopped at. It's the brewery. Sometimes they have food trucks there and they are dog friendly at this one. We kenneled the pup and went the extra mile to Hover.
This is great from the front entrance, though the inside, to the huge outside seating. One day a week they have live music and the upstairs is set for that. There was nothing happening upstairs except (I assume) an employee working on her laptop. We sat downstairs and had a couple of beers and a meal. There are album covers, pictures of musicians (autographed too), and stuff to look at on the wall and for decoration. There is a lot of comfortable seating: tables for four stools, and booths. They play blues (go figure). Southern hospitality theme here.
There are 48 beers on tap which includes their beers and guest beers. There is a selection of canned beers, too, and soft drinks and lemonade is available. What more can you ask for? I didn't think to ask about wine or cocktails because we were having too much fun and I forgot.
The food was excellent! We were expecting Cajon style but that is available at another location. However, the food is still southern style and there are healthy selections. I had a hamburger (beef is grass fed) and shared some sweet potato fries. I didn't even need any condiments; the beef is that good. Desert was excellent, also. I recommend this place!
There is plenty of free parking in their lot and I suppose the street would be available for overflow. Our server was fast and friendly and the other servers and employees always greeted us. My only complaint is the three young women that were supposed to be seating customers: we had to wait while they finished their conversation and then one turned and said, "How many". It wasn't busy so it's not like they were working so hard to smile or say "HI".

My son and I were out for the GABF and hit Longmont and Ft Collins on Friday.
Atmosphere - Very upbeat, obviously given the weekend the place was hopping, we sat at the bar and had some good beer conversations with some local folks who eat lunch there evey Friday. Loved the album covers on the wall in the men's room :)
Quality - Have all the Oskar Blues beers on tap, had a great selection of other craft beers with an emphasis on Colorado beers, had Pliny the Elder on tap which was very nice. Barkeep was great at getting us a couple fo tasters as we considered what to select. Good selection with a list on on deck beers to tap.
Service - Can't complain, friendly, folks behind the bar knew their beers.
Selection - Very good, Avery, Upslope, Russian River, Left Hand and obviosuly Oskar Blues
Food - actually pretty good, excellent portion size, was quick and hot.
Value - I thought it was a fair value

Stopped here for lunch one day while out in Colorado.
The place is very large and open inside. It's got that typical craft bar/brewery decor of tap handles everywhere, signage and antiques on the walls, etc. It came across as too busy/in your face to me, but I can appreciate the vibe they're going for.
They have a ton of great beer on draft. Probably 10-20 of their own stuff and another 25+ well-picked handles from all over the country. I wound up getting a one off of theirs and FW Double Jack.
Service was as good as can be expected, very friendly.
The food was pretty good, but bordering on mildly expensive for what you got (but nice big portions).
Overall this is a great place to grab some BBQ and check out some great beer, whether you like Oskar Blues or not.

Now, this is more like it. A nice restaurant, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and great beer. Combine that with the jazz/blues feel and music, and the outside patio and we're talking fantabulous.
We had appetizers to go with our beer lunches. Nachos and wings. Darn good. The Old Chub sauce is the bomb-diggity.
Long tap line. OB stuff, plus CO stuff, plus other stuff. Large enough place to not wait on most nights, but I can see lines forming in the summer.
Not much else to say: it's a must stop!

A really cool place. Laid back though busy and surprisingly clean. Really cool lay out with a nice size bar, outdoor seating, and lots of indoor seating. The food was enjoyable and the beer selection very great. Worth it just to try the fresh tap Deviant Dales but lots of choices from many other great brewers too, both local and national. The service was really accomodating and friendly. The price was certainly fair, they offer some nice lunch deals if you can make it there early enough.. Glad I finally got off my lazy ass and made it up there.
