We Love Beer & Food (our recent co-worker beer dinner)
Posted: November 30, 2011
A couple of weeks ago, our tap room co-worker Ryan, a culinary mastermind, graciously offered to cook for us. Over two nights, we gathered to dine on the locally sourced cuisine paired with a variety of Odell Brewing beers. Denver Off The Wagon beer writer extraordinaire, Jess Hunter, joined us the first evening, and described the night beautifully. Check out her full story.
Ryan was also kind enough to share his recipes. Enjoy!
