Whether you’re visiting a wizarding world or making a hyperspace jump to a galaxy far, far away, you can rejoice in the knowledge that many theaters now carry a selection of delicious craft beers. Pre-order some tickets, get a bucket of popcorn, and put your phone on vibrate. This is What We’re Drinking.

Odd13 Brewing has had themselves a year, from the meteoric rise in success of their New England-style IPAs to their Robot Librarian hazy IPA collaboration with Fiction, WeldWerks and Cerebral, to the expanded distribution and new can releases featuring their iconic comic book themed illustrations. We sat down with founder Ryan Scott, as well as head brewer, Eric Larkin, to talk about their big year.
Odd13 Brewing is from old town Lafayette, Colorado. They focus on hoppy American, Belgian and experimental styles. Every beer that Odd13 creates falls into a group of other beers they produce, like The Odd Squad, The Legion of Odd, The Sidekicks, etc… A new group called Bi-Monthlies are starting to show up at local beer stores throughout Colorado. This Bi-Monthly group is made up of sour beers released in cans every two months. Each beer is specifically crafted to suit the season in which it is released. This month <3 Machine was released.
