Odell Brewing Introduces Piña Agria

Fort Collins, CO. – On July 31, 2015, Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of its newest Cellar Series brew, Piña Agria, a sour ale brewed with pineapple. Offered in 750ml cork & cage finished bottles, the Cellar Series of beers are bigger and bolder brews that push the boundaries of style, ingredients, and brewing techniques. They are a showcase of the brewers’ innovation and talent, and an outlet for creativity and experimentation.

Piña Agria is no exception. The recipe was inspired by Odell Brewing’s Maintenance Manager and home brewer, Matt Bailey, and his admiration for the balance of tart citrus and fruity sweetness pineapple contributes to food and beverage recipes.

“I always wanted to do a sour brew at home, but never had the resources, knowledge, or the yeast to do it well at home,” said Bailey. “For me, this is obviously a special beer, but it embodies what Odell Brewing is about…home brewing roots, collaboration from learning and working with a team, and the ability for anyone to try and brew what they want on our pilot system.”

Bailey’s brainchild evolved into a small, five barrel batch on the brewery’s pilot system and eventually a full Cellar Series release. Brewed with pineapple juice, Piña Agria is also fermented with the yeast and cultures Bailey hand selected from his favorite Friekbarrel. The final brew is tart, slightly funky, and full of bright pineapple character.

Piña Agria will be available beginning in August throughout the brewery’s eleven state distribution footprint. The brewery will celebrate the release of Piña Agria in the Tap Room July 31 – August 2. Guests can enjoy samples of the brew, local food truck pairings, and live music by Keys and D’s on Sunday.
