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.

The annual celebration of all things San Francisco craft beer–SF Beer Week–is right around the corner, and Mutineer Magazine is proud to be a media sponsor of this year’s festivities. With events happening all over the Bay Area, craft beer lovers will be able to find something they love that is near them. After the SF Beer Week Opening Celebration at the Concourse Exhibition Center on February 8, it’s a week straight of beer dinners, tastings, tap takeovers, pint nights, beer releases, competitions, festivals, parties, and more. Come on out, meet your favorite craft brewers, and raise a pint to SF beer culture.
Here at Mutineer HQ, we want to encourage beverage entrepreneurs in their efforts to bring something new to the beverage industry. Kickstarter is a great resource for these people to bring their ideas to life.
This week I am featuring a Kickstarter project that is raising funds to create a book called the “Beervangelist’s Guide to the Galaxy”. The book, written by friend of Mutineer at New Holland Brewing’s Fred Bueltmann, “sets out to change lives by encouraging people to select what they eat and drink mindfully, artfully integrating and pairing beer into their culinary landscape: breakfast, lunch and dinner.” Fred hopes to inform readers how to artfully integrate beer and food, and how to be a better host because of it.
Visit their Kickstarter campaign for more information and to help fund it. Time is running out, just 67 hours remain!
