Odell Brewing Company (Fort Collins, CO) has a new funky golden ale in the works – Fifty Niner Brett Golden Ale.
This offering is aged on oak staves (the wooden slats of the barrels) and bottled with brettanomyces yeast. As for the namesake? Odell Fifty Niner Brett Golden Ale grabs its name from the Colorado gold rush of 1859. The gold seeking folks flooding in the state got the name ’59ers. (To my knowledge they didn’t make it to the Super Bowl this year either. Too soon?)
Odell describes the Fifty Niner flavor as …shines with hints of lemon zest and pear accentuated by a rich vanilla and almond oak character and subtle earthy spiced pineapple Brett finish.
100% bottle conditioned in 750’s (ml.)
