Odell Brewing Small Batch Festival 2012
Odell Brewing celebrates brews, music, and community

Fort Collins, CO. – On May 26, 2012 Odell Brewing will host its fourth Small Batch Festival. The event, which drew around 3000 people last year, is a celebration of Odell Brewing beers and local music and food.

“Small Batch is the brewery’s way of saying thanks to our amazing community,” said event coordinator Adam D’Antonio. “It’s about sharing our creative brews and just having a good time with friends and family.”

Odell Brewing will feature at least 20 unique beers including its year round favorites as well as limited release Pilot Brews like Wooden Elephant, Coconut Porter, and one selected by the brewery’s Facebook fans. The brewery has partnered with SpokesBuzz, a Fort Collins grassroots music nonprofit, for the entertainment lineup which includes Justin Roth, Constitution, and Musketeer Gripweed. Event goers will also be able to purchase tasty local eats from Choice City Butcher, Cozzolas Pizza, and Moe’s Bar B Que.

This year, Odell Brewing will also award a portion of the event’s proceeds to one local non-profit organization. Charities can apply for the grant on the brewery’s website through April 27th, and the selected organization will be announced on May 1st.

The Small Batch Festival is Saturday May 26th, from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Entry is free, and beer tokens are $4. Guests are encouraged to ride their bikes as parking will be limited. For more information, please visit http://odellbrewing.com/about/small-batch-festival.
