Los Oasis opens in Boulder

Los Oasis Latin Grill & Cerveceria opened on June 7 in the former Boulder Draft House location, at 2027 13th St.

Owner George Hanna says that after closing the Oasis Brewery in 2001, he became interested in pairing dishes typically served in southern Mexico with lagers that didn’t overpower the food.

“We worked with a chef in Aspen, Colo. — his name is Michael Beary — who was the inspiration for the menu that we have,” Hanna says.

Beary worked with Los Oasis chefs for a month to put together a menu featuring authentic recipes from Oaxaca and Yucatan. Los Oasis also brews its own Mexicanstyle lagers and distills its own tequila, which must be referred to as “100 percent blue agave spirits” because it isn’t produced in Mexico.

The Los Oasis owner says he plans to can and distribute two of the lagers — Cabo Gold and Rio Negro — and their blue agave spirits statewide.

Los Oasis is open from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch, 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for happy hour, and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. for dinner on Tuesday through Sunday. It is located at 2027 13th St.
