Oskar Blues' push into Denver isn't stopping with the opening of Hotbox Roasters and Chuburger in the trendy River North district.

The pioneer of canned craft beer plans to open a restaurant and music venue in LoDo.

Oskar Blues Fooderies, the restaurant arm of the Longmont-based craft brewer, inked a deal to fill 11,000 square feet at 1624 Market St., a two-level space that previously had Croc's Mexican Grill above the still-operating Pat's Philly Cheesesteaks.

Oskar Blues is targeting a summer 2017 opening.

Pat's is expected to close, the property owner and Oskar Blues officials said. The restaurant's owner could not be reached for comment.
