Alamo Drafthouse and Odell Brewing Team Up for Beyond IPA

July 14, 2016 |

*This is a sponsored post*

We here at PorchDrinking have always appreciated the cosmic collision between pop culture and beer. So yesterday’s announcement of the collaboration brew between Alamo Drafthouse and Odell Brewing on their upcoming Beyond IPA had us geeking out in more ways than one. The Double IPA was brewed in honor of the upcoming release of Star Trek Beyond, which hits theaters July 22. Read More

Event Recap | Odell Small Batch Festival

June 27, 2016 |

After a 4 year hiatus Small Batch Festival returned to Fort Collins, and as the saying goes “it was just like riding a bicycle.” Entering the festival one fun perk that stood out was that bicycles were welcomed to a VIP parking in the main parking lot and those that drove had to park up top in the upper lot. Walking through the ticketing line was a breeze and the atmosphere as you entered the main bar was jovial.

Ultimate 6er | Summer Sport and Beer Pairings

June 15, 2016 |

Beer and food pairing is becoming an ever more-relevant skill, and we’ve seen an increasing number of culinary programs now require finely-tuned beer pairing skills just as they do with wine. Outside professional realms, beer pairing skills will help you put a damn tasty and impressive meal on the table, and it’s hard to surpass that satisfaction. So why shouldn’t we possess the same care and consideration when we pair a beer with experience? We’re not here to tell you that beer and outdoor activities go great together. That’s already ridiculously obvious. But carefully selecting your beer by factoring in the day’s physical activities can also be a refined skill, similar to choosing your dish’s boozy soulmate.

Event Preview | Odell Resurrects Small Batch Festival

April 14, 2016 |

Odell Brewing Company last hosted Small Batch Festival in 2012, and while the event was an amazing success, the brewery has been quite busy in the years since — They expanded their footprint (Iowa and Texas,) updated their seasonal lineup (Brombeere here, Double Pilsner gone,) released a handful of new bombers (such as Brazzle and Pina Agria,) created a seasonal variety pack (Montage,) and completed brewery construction. Having accomplished so much the past few years, Odell is ready to bring back the Small Batch Festival and hopes to make it an annual event. Adam D’Antonio from Odell said “production comes first and festivals second. We didn’t want to bring Small Batch back until we were ready and could do it right.” Read More

Odell Brewing Co. | Mountain Standard Double Black IPA

September 25, 2015 |

ABV: 9.5%

This week marks the start of Autumn and while pumpkin beers seem to currently be the rage, I find myself always picking up a 4-pack of Odell Brewing Company’s Mountain Standard Double Black IPA come this time of year. This beer is around for a brief time each Autumn (as it is Odell’s current seasonal release) right around when we are all about to set our clocks back to “Mountain Standard Time”, it is quite the catchy name if you ask me! In conjunction to it being a dark beer and it getting dark at 5 p.m. soon, the name is even more clever the more you think about it. As much as I dread summer ending each year, I do look forward to the release of this special gem!

Odell Brewing Company | Piña Agria

September 23, 2015 |

ABV: 6.5% | IBU: 7

Around this time of year, I usually start pining for Odell Brewing Company’s yearly offering of the Friek, a sour ale made with cherries and raspberries. However, Odell recently debuted another beer from their Cellar Series, the Piña Agria, and it’s all I want to drink right now.

Legal Issues Force Mercenary Brewery to Change Name

April 17, 2015 |

For over seven years Adam Cieslak and Ari Megalis home-brewed beer with the hopes of one day opening Mercenary Brewery in Chicago. In October 2014, the childhood friends started using the name Mercenary commercially for the first time as they began bottling and kegging their beers for distribution. But on April 16, the brewery had to change its name from Mercenary to Maplewood.

Odell Brewing Company | Wolf Picker Pale Ale

February 17, 2015 |

With craft breweries opening at a rate of 1.5 per day, coming up with inventive names can be a real challenge for brewers. Thanks to aggressive litigation and creative marketing, we have inventive names like Raucho Man Randy Beverage from Against the Grain, Boom Shakalager from Terrapin, and my personal favorite: Those Candies Your Granny Loves Brown Ale from Cigar City. Then there’s Wolf Picker Pale Ale from Odell Brewing Company. What’s a Wolf Picker? Good question. Trigger warning: German subtitles.

Roundtable Discussion: Best Brewery in America

July 24, 2013 |
Tristan– The Daily Meal recently posted a survey asking readers to vote on the Best Brewery in America. They prefaced this, as they should, with the reminder that the term Best Brewery in America could mean a number of different things to each voter, most medals won, most beers sold, etc. Which got us to thinking, “What factors should go into determining the Best Brewery in America?”
