One of my favorite things to do is stand at the tap wall at East Side Social Club in Denton and pick out my new tasty delight that will quench my thirst and satisfy my brew tastebud. A few weeks ago, at the grand opening of Denton’s Austin Street Food Truck Stop. I was standing there in the glow of the back lit tap handles mounted on the wall and an Odell Brewing tap caught my eye. I knew they were going to be apart of BLBFIT and had missed their launch party in February, so I thought I should make that off my list.
While waiting on my pizza from Dough Boys Pizza Truck, based out of Arlington, I sipped on their seasonal Runoff Red IPA. I do have to say, the pairing was ecstasy for my tongue. Enjoying this smooth brew with a hoppy bite while I sat in the sun with friends was the perfect way to spend a Wednesday post work afternoon. I couldn’t be happier.
Odell crafts an impressive line-up of brews. They have three seasonals, 7 classics, 1 brew in their Woodcut Series, 6 in their Cellar Series, 2 Montages and a 4 Pack Series.
Founded in 1989, Odell Brewing was started by Doug Odell, his wife Wynne, and his sister Corkie. Today, the culture of family and collaboration still thrives, fostering a brewery full of beer-centric people. It is this passion for beer that inspires Odell Brewing to create quality, hand-crafted, innovative brews.
