FORT COLLINS, CO. — On June 3, 2011, Odell Brewing will debut Woodcut No. 5, an oak aged Belgian Quadruple, at SAVOR: An American Craft Beer and Food Experience in Washington D.C.Woodcut No 5 will be the second offering Odell Brewing has released at the event, which is now in its fourth year.
“Every Woodcut offering is uniquely aged in the luxury of brand new toasted oak,” said Brent Cordle, who manages the barrel aging program at Odell Brewing. “The toasted oak and vanilla, along with the Belgian banana and clove flavors, will pair well at the esteemed SAVOR event, an event only fit for a beer like Woodcut No. 5.”
A Quadruple Ale brewed with a blend of Belgian ale yeast and our house ale yeast, Woodcut No. 5 presents a rich, spicy dried fruit essence and a deep auburn color. Vanilla from the New American Oak complements the Special B malt with hints of cherry, raisin and plum on the palate.
SAVOR chefs will pair the beer with “Biscuit n’ Belly,” a braised pork belly on a buttermilk biscuit with mustard greens. According to the chefs, “the bitter mustard greens tame the big quad with the smokey middle transforming the pork belly into a more bacon like state.”
Odell Brewing will also mark the release of Woodcut No. 5 with a celebration in the brewery’s Tap Room from 4-6 p.m. on June 4, 2011. To commemorate the release, limited edition, signed and numbered woodcut prints by local artist Chris Bates will be available for purchase.
