(Fort Collins, CO) – On April 21, 2012, Odell Brewing will release St. Lupulin, the brewery’s beloved summer seasonal. St. Lupulin (loop-you-lin) Extra Pale Ale pays tribute to a mystical character who passionately tended to rows and rows of hops caring for the coveted yellow resin within the hop cones known as Lupulin.
St. Lupulin is a dry-hopped extra pale ale with a clean and crisp finish. The selected hops, including Cascade and Centennial varieties, create a bright citrus and floral aroma and flavor. The brew boasts a golden straw like hue and an 6.5% ABV.
“St. Lupulin is like summer in a bottle,” said brewery co-founder and co-owner, Corkie Odell. “Hints of grapefruit and cut grass make it the perfect sunny day sipper.”
Odell Brewing will celebrate the return of St. Lupulin and warmer days with a tapping party at the brewery’s Tap Room on Saturday, April 21st, 2012. Guests can enjoy live music, local food, and backyard games.
St. Lupulin is available through September throughout the brewery’s ten state distribution region.
