Having been to the Oskar Blues in Boulder, which replaced the horrible World of Beer (good riddance), we wanted to see the Oskar Blues “mothership” in Longmont. It did not disappoint.
It’s a nice space and quite large inside but nicely divided to make it seem much smaller than it really is. We took seats at the bar and tried a selection of happy hour food and our favorite Oskar Blues beers.
The food was tasty and not expensive. The beers were of course very good. We had the chicken with shishito peppers and stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon for starters. For the main,I had the bacon burger. Great tastes, everythiung. The optional mac & cheese side dish was also very good.
Service at a bar is always different, usually better, than service at a table – you’re right there, after all, and they can’t really get away from you or look away too easily / too often without getting caught. So it seems that they are expected to be more attentive, witty and conversational than the average server, and maybe those types who can pull it off are attracted to bar service anyway. Be that s it may or may not be, ours was very good, very chatty, and had that magical ability to cut off the chat flow in an instant, service a priority interrupt, and be right back as though nothing had happened. Exceptional.
So, great beers, good service, excellent food – what’s holding anyone back?
The atmosphere is chill, a nice mood amongst the staff and the guests. It seems that they hang old taps from the ceiling and there’s already quite the collection, which is fun to see. Hard to have a bad time there.
