I’m a lover of beer and in my search of all things hoppy and awesome, I came across the show Beer Geeks on Ora.Tv. Host/Master Brewer Michael Ferguson is getting ready to take the beer experience to a whole different level.
Have you ever paired beer with…cupcakes?They’re mixing things up this week on Beer Geeks and whether you’re a foodie, a craft beer lover (or both!), you’ll want to join them for a #BeerGeeksLIVE Twitter party on Thursday November 20th at 8pm EST in honor of the newest episode featuring the Odell Brewing Company. Yours truly is one of the panelists…. So you have to check it out!!!
The Odell Brewing Company of Fort Collins, CO is known for crafting some amazing beers. Their 5 Barrel Pale Ale has a distinctive hop character that is created by extracting essential oils from select hops. They treat 5 Barrel Pale Ale to an infusion of fresh whole hop flowers, as well as four hop additions during the kettle boil. It gives this tasty Pale Ale a fresh, lively flavor.
If you’re ever in their area, make sure you stop by and check out the tap room.
Their tap room hours are:
Sunday – Tuesday 11-6
Brewery tours are offered every day of the week at 1, 2, 3 and 4 PM. Tours are given on a first come first served basis, within a half hour of the start time. Reservations or tickets are not necessary. They cap their tours at 25 people in order to keep them safe, enjoyable and manageable!
