Landmark Colorado microbrewery Oskar Blues reopens in the wake of devastating floods, giving Lyons residents a place to gather.

(KUSA) On Thursday night, a group of people gathered at a local microbrewery to enjoy some cold beer and hot food.

That wouldn't be newsworthy, except this happened in the town of Lyons, Colorado which is still closed to the general public in the wake of last month's floods.

A lot of locals were relieved to learn that the original Oskar Blues Brewery reopened - kind of.

They invited customers to their patio, where people could order burgers from the company's food truck.

A month after the flood, there's no water or sewer, and much of Lyons is still in the cleanup stage.
