(Fort Collins, CO) – On April 19th, Odell Brewing will celebrate the return of Footprint RegionAle, its latest Cellar Series release beer made with ingredients sourced from each state in the brewery’s distribution footprint.
“We added a new state to our footprint this year, so we had to add a new ingredient,” said pilot brewing and barrel aging manager, Brent Cordle. “Texas grapefruit was a scrumptious addition to this year’s beer.”
First brewed in 2012, Footprint is a complex medley of regional flavors from each of the eleven states in which Odell Brewing distributes blended together to make one unique harmonious beer. The indigenous ingredients include hops and barley from Colorado and Idaho, Arizona prickly pear juice, wheat from Kansas and Wyoming, Minnesota wild rice, Nebraska corn, New Mexico green chiles, South Dakota honey, oak staves from Missouri, and new this year, Texas grapefruit. The final blend boasts a floral citrus nose with bright grapefruit up front on the pallet and just a hint of green chile and fruit from the prickly pear in the finish.
Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of Footprint in the tap room on Saturday, April 19th. Guests can enjoy samples of the beer paired with local food truck fare, as well as live music by Tallgrass from 4-6pm. Footprint RegionAle will be available in 750 ml cork and caged finished bottles throughout the brewery’s eleven state distribution footprint.
