Oskar Blues Reports 38 Percent Jump for First Half

On the heels of the Brewers Association's announcement that craft beer volume jumped 13 percent in volume and 15 percent in revenue for the first half, Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont, Colo.) reports that it experienced a 38 percent increase in depletions over the past six months. This follows eight years of consecutive double digit growth (triple digit growth before that, the brewery says) which helped earn Oskar Blues the distinction of Beverage World's “Craft Brewer of the Year."
