(Fort Collins, CO) – On October 1, 2011, Odell Brewing will celebrate the return of fall with its winter seasonal, Isolation Ale. Following the brewery’s summer release, St. Lupulin, Isolation Ale is a caramel malty ale balanced by a subtle crisp hop finish.
“A funny thing happens here around summer’s end – our eyes start searching the skies for those first fall flakes. As we welcome autumn’s first snow, we celebrate the return of Isolation Ale,” reads the label. “Whether you ski, shred, or shoe, Isolation Ale will inspire you to make first tracks.”
Odell Brewing will host an Isolation tapping party in the brewery’s tap room on Saturday October 1st as part of a weeklong celebration for the Great American Beer Festival. Local food truck favorites, StrEats Mobile Bistro and the Cupcake Cruiser will be onsite offering tasty bites to pair with the brew.
Isolation Ale is available October through December throughout the brewery’s ten state distribution region.
