Odell Brewing Brings Back Deconstruction Barrel Aged Golden Ale

FORT COLLINS, CO. – On August 25, 2012, Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of Deconstruction, a barrel aged Golden Ale and the brewery’s fourth Single Serve release this year.

First debuted in 2010, Deconstruction is based on Jacque Derrida’s theory of Deconstruction whereby developing a process of brewing that first deconstructs the desired complexities in the finished product thereby revealing how to achieve these characteristics through brewing process. The beer itself was created by blending the final recipe with smaller pilot batches of the brew aged in oak barrels and fermented with wild yeasts. Each brew contributes a unique flavor, derived from the wood chosen and the cultures resident, to achieve the subtle complexities desired.

“This beer is so craft forward we have gone back in time to resurrect it,” said Odell Brewing Quality Manager, Eli Kolodny. “It has many quintessential craft brewing elements like barrel aging, wild yeasts and bacteria.”

The final blend offers a subtle sweetness up front with a tart and lingering finish reminiscent of apples and grapefruit as well as an earthy, citrusy hop aroma. Deconstruction will be available throughout the brewery’s ten state distribution region in 750 mL cork and cage finished bottles.

The brewery will celebrate the return of Deconstruction in the Tap Room on August 25th. Guests are invited to come enjoy samples of the brew as well as tasty food from The Rolling Bistro food truck and live music by The Constant Tourists from 4:00 — 6:00 p.m.
