Odell Brewing celebrates the return of Bourbon Barrel Stout
Odell Brewing will celebrate the highly anticipated return of its
Bourbon Barrel Stout. This year’s batch boasts new bourbon barrels
and an updated label that pays tribute to those barrels.
“We tweaked the process this year, to meet and maintain our highest
quality standard,” said Brent Cordle, brewer and barrel aging
manager for Odell Brewing. “We selected Woodford Reserve barrels for
the 2011 batch, and the freshly emptied barrels were immediately
shipped to us cold which preserved the integrity of the barrel and
the beautiful bourbon flavor.”
