Oskar Blues’ passion for bikes and craft beer is the inspiration behind the CyclHOPS Bike CAN-tina, set to open in Longmont, CO, at the end of 2013. The quick full-service taco and tequila eatery will also be the official retail home for the Oskar Blues in-house bike brand, REEB Cycles. “We wanted to create an original cycling-inspired hangout and compliment the bike culture of Longmont and the Front Range of Colorado,” said Jason Rogers, Oskar Blues’ chef and one of the driving forces in the project. “It’s a creative Rocky Mountain-Biker-Chef take on a taqueria menu with a mix of quality tequilas and beer that really adds to the craft-inspired elements of REEB Cycles and Oskar Blues beer.” The CyclHOPS CAN-tina will seat up to 300 people and will offer up 20 craft beers on tap as well as 43 premium tequilas in the CAN-tina’s tequila tasting room. The restaurant will bring a little bit of south-of-the-border soul to Colorado with a tequila tiki bar, handmade tortillas and a menu featuring fresh, fast combinations inspired by authentic and traditional taco-makin’ techniques.
