Odell Brewing has announced their latest year-round offering, Colorado Lager. Available only in the brewery’s home state of Colorado, this beer will be released in 16 ounce 6-pack cans starting April 4th, with a 12 ounce 15-pack joining the portfolio later this May.
“Colorado Lager has been in the works for well over a year now. After countless test batches on our pilot system, we thrilled to share our interpretation of the style with the fans in our home state,” said Brendan McGivney, COO. “It’s a style we love to drink, and we think there’s a place for a lager in the craft beer lover’s fridge.”
Coming in at an approachable 5.0% ABV, Odell built their recipe using American hops, Colorado water, and premium malted barley without the addition of any adjuncts.
“While the flavors are crisp and refreshing, a well-made lager takes a deft hand. It’s a tricky style to master,” added McGivney. “Naming the beer after our home state gave it a lot of sentimental weight, and we knew we had to put in the hard work to make something we’d be proud to share.”
While Odell’s brand labels are known for their picturesque Rocky Mountain landscapes, Colorado Lager features a more restrained and cleaner look. The design is centered around a red color scheme that borrows from Odell’s leaf logo, and is built out of a pattern of icons that celebrates brewing and the Colorado lifestyle.
For the release of Colorado Lager, Odell is launching two new can packages — a 16 ounce 6-pack can and a 12 ounce 15-pack, which will be available across Odell’s home state of Colorado beginning the week of April 9th.
