We love Colorado's Odell Brewing Company and we'd like to think the feeling is mutual. We recently got our hands on a bottle of their 7.6% ABV beer, Jaunt. This pale ale was born in the Western Slope of Colorado — by way of the Rocky Mountains — and brewed with riesling grape juice. The beer was then aged on oak staves, which leaves it with a malty body and fruity finish. The oak adds a nice hint of vanilla, making the taste of Jaunt something all brewers and drinkers alike can admire. On a much more shallow note, we can't get over the awesome label design. It looks like a still from a Wes Anderson film. But honestly, we're just suckers for nice labels.
