Oskar Blues beers coming to 16 oz. tall boy cans

The Longmont-based brewery is currently awaiting the delivery of a canning machine from German firm KHS, which will allow it not only to fill sixteen-ounce cans, but also to double the number of twelve-ounce cans it can fill per minute. Oskar Blues spokesman Chad Melis says he doesn’t have exact plans for which beers it will put into tallboys, but adds that Dale’s would be the obvious first choice.

  1. Forgive me if I’m wrong, but I believe that 16oz cans are called ‘pounders,’ whereas 24oz cans are tallboys. I say this having been corrected/chided by an even geekier beer enthusiast.

    Regardless, It’s a good step for OB. Let’s hope the keep their prices as-is to match the price point of their ‘pounder’ competitors (Surly, Half Acre, etc.)

  2. I’ve heard both tallboys & pounders for 16 ounce cans. Either way, Dales Pale is going to be in a 16 ounce can and that is awesome.
