Brewery unleashes Saboteur Brett Barrel Brown Ale

Fort Collins, Colo. – On April 19, 2010. Odell Brewing will release its much anticipated Saboteur Brett Barrel Brown Ale. This is the fourth limited release offering in the brewery’s Single Serve series of beers.

The brewer’s at Odell Brewing created an unpretentious, yet sophisticated brown ale. Then they conspired (with a sinister snicker) and plotted to dose this full-bodied ale with brettanomyces, the ultimate adversary of wineries. By embracing this vintner’s nemesis, the brewer’s created a complex and delightfully drinkable beer.

Wood aged and bottle conditioned, Saboteur pours a deep burnt umber color and offers intense earthy undertones. Nuances of tannins, hints of vanilla and pineapple intermingle with a sour silhouette, giving the beer exquisite texture and depth.

Colorado beer enthusiasts were treated to a sneak peak of the beer at the Kegs and Curds event in March at the Wynkoop in Denver . “Saboteur was paired with a Gruyere Surchoix and took second place out of about 20 pairings,” said Lynsey Perry who represented the brewery at the event.

Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of Saboteur with a tasting in the brewery’s tap room on April 17, 2010 from 4-6 p.m. Guests can enjoy samples of the brew paired with artisan cheeses while listening to the musical styling’s of Key of Joy.

Saboteur is offered in 750 ml Belgian style bottles and will be available in the brewery’s eight state distributor region at a suggested retail price of $12.99 per bottle.
