From Facebook:

Join us as we begin a groundbreaking partnership with one of our favorite breweries!
Dutch’s is working with Oskar Blues to be a retail outlet for Black Angus Beef and Berkshire Pork raised at the Hops & Heifers farm.
To celebrate this partnership we’re throwing a grill out with plenty of OB beer and Hops & Heifers Burgers! Farmer Geoffrey Hess will be on hand to answer questions you may have, or to just hang out and have a beer!
Needless to say, we’re stoked about this. Show us you are too, come out for a burger and beer!
More about the farm…
The Oskar Blues Hops and Heifers 50 acre farm has been reborn by Dale Katechis and Geoff Hess in an area just outside of the brewery in Longmont, CO. The farm currently grazes 100% Oskar Blues raised Black Angus cattle that are part of the sustainable model at the Hops & Heifers farm. The foundation for Hops and Heifers is the integration of efficient sustainable agriculture with the values and stewardship of yester year’s family farm. A crucial part of that foundation is the ability to seamlessly integrate the Brewery waste outflows into productive farm inflows. By being dedicated to an all-natural, locally grown approach, we give back to our community freshly crafted, farm raised products. We do this with the same care and passion to product quality that goes into every Oskar Blues Craft Beer. We are committed to recycling, composting, community outreach, and sustainable agricultural education for future generations.
Let’s be good stewards of the land and get back to the values of the Family Farm. When folks used to know who grew their kohlrabi and fed their beef. Grab an Oskar Blues craft beer in a can, kick up your boots & feel good about the fact that you are doing your part to support the culture of sustainable agriculture.
