(Fort Collins, CO) – On March 31, 2012, Odell Brewing will celebrate the return of Double Pilsner. Double Pilsner, a creative take on the traditional Bohemian Pilsner, replaces Mountain Standard for the warmer months as one of the brewery’s four pack offerings.
Bohemian by tradition American by craft, Double Pilsner is filled with rich sweet German Pilsen Malt and spicy Noble Hops. The Odell brewers took the storied style and increased both the malts and hops to increase the ABV and body while balancing the crisp hop character that is so prominent in this style of beer.
“Aromatically, Double Pilsner buzzes with notes of beeswax, ginger and a sharp Riesling white wine,” said Lee Williams in his 2011 review for Denver Off the Wagon. “On the palate, flavors of fresh mint leaf, lemon pith and quinine all busily vie for attention and cumulatively give the beer a breezy Czech pilsner freshness.”
Odell Brewing will celebrate the Double Pilsner release with a tapping party in the brewery’s Tap Room on Saturday, March 31st featuring local food, back yard games, and live music by the Gin Mill Gypsies from 4-6pm.
Double Pilsner is available through September within the brewery’s ten state distribution region.
