The Rocky Mountain region offers one of the widest varieties of beers produced in the world, which was clearly on display at the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp festival stop in Denver, Colorado. From giant stouts to wine barrel–aged beers, to newer tart, sour, and funky brews, one common theme did start to emerge — it was all about the summer sunshine and big, bright flavors in the Mile High City.
Odell Brewing Company's Trellis Garden Ale: Fort Collins, Colorado
The Brewery: Odell Brewing Company, one of Colorado’s first craft breweries from the late eighties, in Fort Collins, Colorado.
The Beer: Trellis Garden Ale
Tasting Notes: One of Colorado’s first craft breweries from the late eighties, Odell still out-innovates most brewers in the region with a lusted-after cellar sires and a pilot system that just won’t quit. Trellis is brewed with local herbs and spices from the Gardens on Spring Creek, giving it a bizarre and awesome nose of coriander, cilantro, lavender, and rose petal that hovers over a lovely pale ale base.
