Odell Brewing Arrives in Texas

Odell Brewing has quite the list of events planned for their inaugural week in Texas, including a tapping of a special collaboration brew:

The brewery has a full week of launch events planned all over the state, including a special tapping at Pinthouse Pizza in Austin, which was started by friend and former Odell Brewing brewer Joe Mohrfeld. Joe teamed up with Odell’s head of production, Brendan McGivney, to brew a collaboration beer that they once brewed together at Odell Brewing. “T.A.P. TX” honors that original recipe, but brings it into the culturally relevant Session Ale realm with just as many hops but a slightly lower ABV.

Their regular lineup of beers are quite solid and some of the their seasonals and other series can be highly sought after for enjoying and trading.

Odell is just another of some of the high profile breweries such as Founders, Southern Tier and Upland who have entered the Texas market recently.
