As the summer of 2017 winds down, a new beer is emerging in Fort Collins, Colorado – Odell Rupture.
A special flourish in the brewing process is what makes Odell Rupture so unique. Sure, you’ve heard of whole flower hops added to the boil, or used in dry-hopping. Odell does something a little different in this brewing process by grinding the whole flower hops minutes before meeting beer.
The brewery actually uses a mix of pellets and whole flower hops in their brewing processes. The biggest hop aromas came “rupturing” the lupulin in the whole flower hops in a grinding process. The brewery loved the result so much, they installed a hammer mill to aid in the process.
“By grinding the hops, we unlock an unparalleled amount of hop aroma. We built the recipe around highlighting that aroma, letting the hops take center stage without overwhelming bitterness.” – Brendan McGivney, COO
