Odell Brewing has announced their latest year-round offering, Colorado Lager. Available only in the brewery’s home state of Colorado, this beer will be released in 16 ounce 6-pack cans starting April 4th, with a 12 ounce 15-pack joining the portfolio later this May.
“Colorado Lager has been in the works for well over a year now. After countless test batches on our pilot system, we’re thrilled to share our interpretation of the style with the fans in our home state,” says Brendan McGivney, COO. “It’s a style we love to drink, and we think there’s a place for a lager in the craft beer lover’s fridge.”
Coming in at an approachable 5.0% ABV, Odell built their recipe using American hops, Colorado water, and premium malted barley without the addition of any adjuncts. “While the flavors are crisp and refreshing, a well-made lager takes a deft hand. It’s a tricky style to master,” adds McGivney. “Naming the beer after our home state gave it a lot of sentimental weight, and we knew we had to put in the hard work to make something we’d be proud to share.”
While Odell’s brand labels are known for their picturesque Rocky Mountain landscapes, Colorado Lager features a more restrained and cleaner look. “There’s a nostalgia around lagers. We wanted to give a nod back to the classic design but also make sure it fit within the Odell look and feel.” explains Eric Smith, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.
The design is centered around a red color scheme that borrows from Odell’s leaf logo, and is built out of a pattern of icons that celebrates brewing and the Colorado lifestyle. “From the moment we started talking about this beer, we wanted it to be quintessentially Colorado, a tribute to our history and everything that makes this state a great place to live. The icons gave us a space to tell that story,” added Smith.
For the release of Colorado Lager, Odell is launching two new can packages – a 16 ounce 6-pack can and a 12 ounce 15-pack. “We wanted to explore packaging innovation within our portfolio. The 16 ounce can is perfect for the summer months, and the 15-pack was a natural fit for this style. Both packs offer a new option for our consumers that’s not often seen in our Colorado market,” explains Smith. Colorado Lager will be available across Odell Brewing’s home state of Colorado beginning the week of April 9th.

Rupture was born out of our obsession with getting the most out of each and every hop. In fact, we built a machine in our brewery so that we could grind hops fresh. And what we grind that day we use that day. Leaving you a beer that’s fresh, aromatic, with a bright hoppy character.
Find Rupture with our Beer Finder across our 15-state footprint : Colorado, Texas, New Mexio, Arizona, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois.
Charity of the Month: Hearts and Horses
Please join us at the tap room this month to help us support our community partner, Hearts and Horses. Hearts and Horses works to promote the physical, cognitive, emotional and social well-being of people with special needs through equine-assisted therapy.
The power of connection between rider and animal creates a fundamental change in the patient. While riding, participants must constantly make postural adjustments to maintain their balance, which in turn increases their overall balance, orientation and body awareness. Other benefits include improved muscle tone, posture, range of motion, flexibility, social skills and emotional well being. In addition, horses provide a non-judgmental relationship, accepting individuals for who they are regardless of physical, emotional or social abilities.
Learn more about Hearts and Horses and how you can contribute.
Tip Jar: Hope House
Our committee has chosen Hope House as the July Tip Jar Partner. This important non-profit represents a too-often overlooked demographic in our greater Denver community: young mothers fighting for the health and sustainability of their families. The team at Hope House has thoughtfully crafted self-sufficiency programs that are tailored to each individual client through programs like their Mentoring Program and GED classes. They address the issue of homelessness through a Residential Program providing a stable place to begin the break from the cycle of poverty.
When you visit our tap room, please be sure to leave your change in the tip jar to help create change for these aspiring young mothers!

Charity of the Month: The Growing Project
9 years ago, a young woman working on her Masters Degree at CSU approached us with an idea: what if we were able to provide healthy, sustainable food for impoverished people living in “food deserts.” Food deserts are defined as parts of the country vapid of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers. The Growing Project was aspiring to provide Fort Collins the perfect way to endow our community with fresh produce and help insure healthy soil systems which lead to a healthy watershed, and beer made from the best water! We are so proud that we were able to contribute the first ever monetary donation to this amazing agency and have supported its success ever since.
The Growing Project has achieved a permanent home out at Hope Farms and continues to engage our community by utilizing property to grow healthy food, free farmers’ markets/stands to distribute the food to those in need, classes on agriculture and education for food preparation.
On Tuesday, May 2nd, we will host a fundraiser in our tap room for The Growing Project. Please join us at 7:00pm and learn from the farmers, gardeners and committed TGP fans what this group is really all about!
TIP JAR: The FoCo Cafe
Following the lead of Brad and Libby of the SAME Cafe in Denver, Jeff and Kathleen have created FoCo Cafe for Fort Collins: a space to serve food to folks from every walk of life where they feel like they belong, the food, albeit healthy and delicious, almost feels secondary to the ambience in the FoCo Cafe. As a patron, you are given the opportunity to pay what you can, volunteer to be fed or pay it forward (paying what you think is a fair price for your lunch and contributing a little extra for those in need. The food is fresh and tasty, sourced as locally as possible and most is provided through donations from local farmers, The Food Coop, Sprouts and Wholefoods. Through Jeff’s creative touch, he turns these piece-meal offerings into delicious fare not to be missed! On the BEST days, you can even find 90 Shilling Green Chile and at one point he made a cheddar soup with our Loose Leaf, Session Ale; YUM! Please join them for the most pleasant meal in town at 225 Maple Street.
