Atmosphere and Events

You’ll think you’ve been transported to Bourbon Street of New Orleans when you venture to the downstairs bar of Oskar Blues Lyons’ location. You’ll see Mardi Gras beads, a giant picture of Stevie Ray Vaughn, colorful decor covering every inch of wall-space and beer cans (turned into flying creatures) hanging from the ceiling.

At Oskar Blues, it’s all about the beer, all about the music and all about community!

Featuring local acts, as well as visiting musicians from all over, Oskar Blues (as the name would suggest) is known for its electrifying musical taste and scene. 

For ski and boarding fanatics, Oskar Blues of Lyons seasonally offers Warren Miller film viewings. These family-friendly events are a great way to spend the evening and kick off ski season.

Eats and Treats

Wings, creamy sides of macaroni and cheese, fried green tomatoes and a smorgasbord of other Cajun-inspired delights make for the perfect evening goods. And all dishes and appetizers can be perfectly paired with Oskar Blues’ signature beers, including Dale’s Pale Ale and the hoppy Gubbna.

For a beer that’s more than just a drink, the Ten FIDY Imperial Stout is a meal all its own. With a 10.5% ABV and “flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee,” this monster of a brew can serve as your dinner and dessert.

Not in the mood for a brew? Be sure to try the root beer. If you have a sweet tooth, make it a root beer float. It’s truly some of the tastiest and sweetest root beer around!

Locations Near Boulder
