Odell Brewing- May 2017

With the arrival of May we get the arrival of summer, and beer season. We thought we would get things started by bringing FOCO to SOBO and great savings on beers from Fort Collins based Odell Brewing Company right to your back yard in South Boulder and Pettyjohn’s. The options are abundant and you will surely find something to quench your palate. If you don’t know 90 Shilling by now here is the scoop, it’s Odell’s smooth and complex flagship beer. This medium-bodied amber ale has a distinct burnished copper color and a deeply pleasant aroma.  With their IPA they added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a unique bitterness profile and incredible hop character. Want more hops? Myrcenary Double IPA is brewed with a blend of hops containing the highest level of Myrcene ( a component of essential oils in the hop flower) this beer prevails with tropical fruit-like- flavor, a pungent floral aroma, and a clean getaway. Can I have a Drumroll please? The Drumroll American Pale Ale is an unfiltered beauty of a beer. With a bold, juicy, citrus inspired and tropically hop forward ale this APA looks and tastes like pineapple, orange, mango and grapefruit. On the lighter side of things try the Loose Leaf Session Ale. Crisp and refreshing, but a bit more hop-forward than some others in the market.  5 Barrel Pale Ale named for the 5 select hop additions diligently administered throughout the brewing process. This Pale Ale is refreshing and lively in flavor and aroma. It is always nice to take a stroll down Easy Street in Colorado in the summer. Easy Street Is an unfiltered American style wheat beer, the yeast gives the beer a nice- smooth finish, a slight fruit flavor and its distinct cloudy appearance. Levity Amber Ale is Odell’s lighter take on traditional amber ales. Munich and honey malts give this beer a full- bodied flavor while the finishing hops make it crisp not bitter. As a seasonal selection Odell has released Brombeere a blackberry gose (GOES-uh) a wonderful balance of tangy and sweet.  And don’t forget the Cutthroat Porter not quite a stout but definitely no light weight. Deep and rich in color with flavors that hint at chocolate and coffee. All month long these beers will be featured on sale with savings of a dollar or more in some cases at Pettyjohn’s.  Looking for more Odell’s?
