If Only This Beer Were Ready For Valentine's Day...

Forget a steak dinner, flowers, heart candies and teddy bears. This beer is all we want for Valentines Day, and luckily we'll get it... just a little belated. Stone and Odell came together to brew the perfect treat for those who desire Colorado craft beer as their sweetheart: a Chocolate Coffee Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout that was then added evenly to whiskey and rum barrels for aging.

Brent hopes the beer will taste like rum cake, chocolate brownies, include very subtle hint of chocolate covered raspberry, vanilla, and have a big rich mouth feel.

You know something special is due when two barrel aged project pros come together to create a unique beer. This brew was brainstormed by Laura Ulrich of Stone Brewing Company and Brent Cordle of Odell Brewing Company.

Brent of Odell explained how the two came together for the collaboration beer, "Laura and I used to work in packaging together here at Odell and we have had a great friendship over the years.  It was great to have her come back and brew with us after so many years. Since she made the move to San Diego over 10 years ago, it was fun to show her all the changes that have been made as Odell has grown."

Heres to a Valentine's date with beer worth the wait!
