Perhaps best known for their award winning Pale Ale, Oskar Blues Brewery is also gaining a reputation in the cycling industry for their other hobby – bike building. The company recently began manufacturing an array of bicycles under the name Reeb, which happens to be “Beer” spelled backward.
Originally based in Colorado, the Brewery now has an East Coat location, located just a few miles from Pisgah National Forest. The location was chosen because it’s one of owner Dale Katechis’s favorite places to ride.
Now to celebrate those dual passions, Oskar Blues is in the process of opening a 145 acre ranch, that will feature world class riding and beer. On the former Shoal Falls Farm, the brewery will grow vegetables and hops, and raise “home-grown” beef and pork for their four restaurants.
In addition to that, the farm will feature dirt jumps, a pump track, a swimming hole, waterfalls, tent camping, and easy access to the miles of single track in Dupont State Park. Reeb also plans to make bikes available for demo, and are partnering with a local bike guide/concierge service, to provide tours.
