Orange & Brew Black is Beautiful Tap Takeover for Chicago Students

September 9, 2020 |

A multi-faceted demonstration of craft-beer community support will manifest at Downer Grove’s Orange & Brew Bottle Shop and Tap Room on September 19 (noon – 9 pm). The tap takeover will not only feature a dozen “Black is Beautiful” project beers — some of which have previously only been available in the taproom where they were brewed, but also benefit the Wood Family Pitch In project, which assists oft-ignored inner-city school districts by offering mentoring to kids as they transition from middle school to high school.

Odell Brewing is Coming To Chicago | Several Events to Celebrate its Arrival

January 26, 2017 |

Original skyline photo taken by Daniel Schwen – modified for the purposes of this story.

My first excursion to the Odell Brewing taproom occurred nearly fifteen years ago while on a trip to Colorado. Impressed would be an understatement. However, I, like many Chicagoans, had to rely on bottle hauls for a chance to enjoy Odell creations.

But not anymore.

Odell Brewing is bringing its beer from the Rocky Mountains to the city of Big Shoulders and to kick off the eastward expansion, Odell will take over the taps at three bottle shop & tasting rooms — Bitter Pops, The Cellar, and The Open Bottle.

(Edit: Other events have been added since this was first published. Those items have been added at the end of this piece.)
