Fort Collins, CO. – On April 6, 2013, Odell Brewing will release its latest Cellar Series offering, Tree Shaker Imperial Peach IPA, brewed with 3000 pounds of pureed peaches grown on the Western slope of Colorado.
“Colorado grows some incredible fruit,” said Pilot Brew manager, Brent Cordle. “We’ve explored beers with local cherries, raspberries, and peaches. Tree Shaker is a great example of how hoppy beers can be enhanced with a subtle fruit character.”
Tree Shaker was certainly a labor of love for Odell brewers. The base IPA recipe was developed and brewed, and around nine days into fermentation, the team added the pureed peaches to the IPA by hand, an all-day process. The end result is a crisp and flavorful Imperial IPA with hints of peach character from both the fruit and hops used.
Tree Shaker is offered in 750 mL, cork and cage finished bottles and will be available throughout the brewery’s ten state distribution region. Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of Tree Shaker on Saturday, April 6th in the brewery’s Tap Room. Guests can enjoy live music, local food, and samples of the new brew.
