It took a while, but Lyons-based brewery Oskar Blues now has an outpost in Denver.

The brewery opened a branch of its fast-casual burger joint CHUBurger today at 3490 Larimer St. (Yes, you can already get CHUBurger inside Coors Field, but that’s pretty limited availability, so we’re counting this.)

The bar will offer 30 taps with the usual Oskar Blues line-up and a rotation of canned and bottled beers from other breweries. You can browse the food menu here.

Right next door to the new CHUBurger, Oskar Blues opened Hotbox Roasters CBD Café — Hotbox Roasters’ first brick-and-mortar store.

CBD stands for coffee, beer and doughnuts, and the café serves fair-trade, single-sourced coffee, fancy doughnuts, home-fried hand pies, Nitro Cold Brew and coffee-infused Oskar Blues beers.

Both spots will have patio seating and both will host live music at least one night a week. CHUBurger and Hotbox Roasters also both give a percentage of sales to Oskar Blues’ Can’d Aid Foundation.

CHUBurger’s hours are 11 a.m. to midnight daily. Hotbox is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
