Odell Brewing is blurring the lines between beer and wine with the upcoming release of Amuste. Odell’s first Cellar Series offering of the year, Amuste begins with an imperial porter brewed with Tempranillo grape must, from grapes grown on the Western Slope of Colorado, before being aged in barrels previously holding red wine. Finally, the barrels are blended to create a harmonious, consistent finished product.
According to Odell Brewing, “Amuste boasts a hearty malt backbone with notes of chocolate, a subtle sweet grape character, and hints of toasted almond from the oak barrels. It pairs perfectly with peppered red meats, brie cheese, or dark chocolate.”
Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of Amuste in the Tap Room on February 9th with live music and local food-truck pairings. Amuste will be available in 750 ml cork and cage finished bottles throughout the brewery’s ten state distribution footprint.
