Odell & Marble Brewing team up in Stone Megawheat Double IPA

Stone Megawheat Double IPA

Stone Megawheat Double IPA is a future collaborative release by the California based brewery.

This riff teams up Colorado’s Odell Brewing, Stone, and New Mexico’s Marble Brewing. The trio created a wheat laden,  “M” hop heavy, imperial IPA. “M” hops like Mandarina Bavaria, Motueka, and Mosaic. All that talk means a soft-on-your-palate beer with a ton of tangerine, orange, and citrus flavors.

Kick back and crank it up as we’ve done all the brewing.. the we being us and the special guest appearances of two heavy hitters in the indie craft beer industry: Colorado’s Odell and New Mexico’s Marble. Credited with 50 years of brewing chops, our trio built their wheat ale foundation on the classic “C” hops. Then, they rocked a pure hop triad of “M” hops to achieve a supercharged succession of orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, spice and dankness. The undulating riffs of Motueka, Mosaic, and Mandarina Bavaria hops slash through the wheat haze with equal footing, never playing over one another. The cacophony of flavor is what fans would expect ahead of a path that directly leads to the main stage… and then off the front of it, into the crowd!

Stone Megawheat Double IPA will be a 22 ounce bottle release, most likely in 2017. The brewery has not yet announced this beer.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Mandarina Bavaria, Motueka, Mosaic

Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.

Odell Crossover Sour Blonde looks to debut in September

Odell Crossover Sour Blonde

Odell Crossover Sour Blonde looks to join the brewery’s sour and wild lineup in the near future.

In our personal experience, if you want to get a wine person to like beer, let them try a wine barrel aged beer, or a sour ale. Odell Crossover Sour Blonde is both. A sour ale aged in a white wine barrel. The base blonde beer has been aged in both chardonnay and sauvignon blanc barrels.

We’re in a relentless search for new ways to influence the character of our beer. Crossover is our tribute to the complex partnership between two of the most prolific and ancient fermented beverages – beer and wine. We brewed a sour blonde ale and aged it in chardonnay and sauvignon blanc barrels to introduce notes of tropical fruit, elderflower, and subtle oak finish. The result of the unique combination is a dry, effervescent beer balanced with hints of pear, tart sourness, and light funk.

Odell Crossover Sour Blonde Ale is a 750 milliliter bottle potential, tentatively scheduled for September.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (Wine Barrel Aged)
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Debut: September, 2016

Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot releases May 27th

Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot

Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot is on deck by the Colorado based brewery.

Love fruited sours? Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot is a fruit focused sour, featuring a blend of Brettanomyces yeast, and Lactobacillus.

Apricots are thought to be native of the Persian territory, where they were commonly referred to as Zard-Alu. These precious stone fruits were so highly revered that they were often used a commodity in the markets. The stones were not to be wasted. Much like this brew. While peach and pear-like flavors mingle in the background, as Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus create the tie that binds all the components. The end result is a complex ale that is playfully sour, light, and refreshing.

Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot will be a 750 milliliter offering, available in the tap room starting May 27th/

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Apricots)
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Release: 5/27/16

Odell Prop Culture releases April 15th

Odell Prop Culture

Odell Prop Culture joins the brewery’s Cellar Series on April 15th.

The basis for this project is the magic that yeast performs. Odell has been experimenting by PROPagating different Belgian yeast strains. The cultures have been blended in different primary and secondary fermentations.

We let the Saccharomyces cultures do the heavy lifting by converting the bulk of the wort sugars while the Brettanomyces cultures did the fine tuning to round out the flavor profile. The result of our experimentation led to PROP CULTURE, a project of 10+ yeast strains working together to create a fruit forward collage of flavors like pineapple, pear, mango, and banana balanced by a clove like spiciness.

Odell Prop Culture will be available in 750 milliliter bottles starting April 15th. Full availability details are forthcoming.

Style: Belgian-style Strong Ale
Availability; 750ml Bottles
Release: 4/15/16
