Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp Across America: Bell's events and tasting notes for Maillard's Odyssey

Josh Smith | Bell's Brewery

MaillardsOdyssey.jpgThis summer, we’re joining Sierra Nevada for Beer Camp Across America, a multi-weekend traveling beer festival taking place in seven cities across the country.

With more than 700 breweries and at least 1,300 craft beers on tap from nearly every state in the country, Beer Camp Across America promises to be the largest craft beer celebration in history.

In conjunction with the festival tour, the Beer Camp Across America collaborative 12-pack includes 12 different beers including two beers packaged in cans.

The Beer Camp Across America variety pack is out now and also includes Allagash, the Asheville Brewers Alliance, Ballast Point, Cigar City, Firestone Walker, New Glarus, Ninkasi, Oskar Blues, Russian River, 3 Floyds and Victory.

Our contribution, Maillard’s Odyssey Imperial Dark Ale, is a robust dark ale layered with complex malt flavors of toffee, caramel, chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. This malt-focused concept spawned a daunting grain bill featuring 10 different grains including pale malt, Munich, chocolate malt, oats, dark wheat and roasted barley for a rich, semi-sweet and intense experience. 

The name honors the Maillard reaction—the “browning” of sugars and amino acids—that creates the wonderful caramelized toffee-like and roasted flavors so abundant in this beer.

We have are participating events in a quite a few different states including Michigan, Florida, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina and Illinois (Chicago/Midwest festival).

Details for all can be found here.
