Fort Collins, CO – On May 27, 2016, Odell Brewing will release its most recent Cellar Series beer, Zard-Alu, a Sour Apricot Ale.

“Stone fruits are one of the top aroma notes in some hop varieties, but the bitterness doesn’t always pair well with sour beer,” said Eli Kolodny, Quality Control Manager. “So, we wanted to make a sour stone fruit beer & Zard-Alu was born.”

Native of the Persian territory, apricots are commonly referred to as Zard-Alu. Apricots shine bright, while peach and pear-like flavors mingle in the background, as Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus create the tie that binds all the components. The end result is a complex ale that is playfully sour, light and refreshing.

Zard-Alu is 100% bottle conditioned. This Cellar Series beer will be available in 750ml cork and cage bottles in all of the brewery’s 12 state distribution footprint. Celebrate this release in their tap room on Friday, May 27 and during their Small Batch festival over Memorial Day weekend.
