Double the Pils, Double the Thrills

Odell brings back an old seasonal in its Single Batch series with the release of Double Pilsner. This Imperial Pils style features gobs (yes, it's a brewing term. It's kind of cutting-edge. You probably wouldn't know about it yet.) of Munich malt along with Saaz and Tettnanger hops. Needless to say, it veers toward the German side of the Pilsner spectrum, though I don't know many German breweries that are amping their pilsners up this much. Odell's version is 8.1%, and retails for $10.99 a six-pack. Jubilation has a good amount o the beer out on display, but it won't be around long. Odell means it when they say "Single Batch": only 100 barrels of this style were brewed so when it's gone you'll have to switch to another Pils. Or pills. Whatever makes you happy.

Love this blog. Think you do a great job. I read you posted back in 2008 about Pumpkinhead. I am from New Hampshire, and I just moved to ABQ and can't find it anywhere! Any suggestions? I know it was released...I hope I don't have to have it "shipped" out to me...

Thanks!

Stef- trying to find out for you. I know Jubilation got it in last year, so that would be your best bet. It is not there yet, however.

As soon as I get an answer, I will let you know!
