Odell Brewing Co. Debuts Hammer Chain Fresh Grind Double IPA

Odell Brewing Co. in Fort Collins, Colorado has announced the release of Hammer Chain Fresh Grind Double IPA.

Hammer Chain is a souped-up DIPA version of the brewery's popular Rupture Fresh Grind Pale Ale from 2018, which was named one of our Top 100 Beers of 2018.

The beer clocks in at 8 percent ABV and is available through July across Odell's 19-state distribution footprint.

The full release from the brewery is below.


Fort Collins, CO. - Odell Brewing’s latest limited release is Hammer Chain, a Fresh Grind Double IPA.

Coming in at 8% ABV, Hammer Chain is Rupture's bigger, meaner, older brother. ⁣This Fresh Grind Double IPA was named after the blades of the hammer mill that pulverize each whole-flower hop, releasing the lupulin inside. ⁣⁣

“Two years ago we released Rupture and since then we've learned a thing or two about Fresh Grind IPAs,” explains Brendan McGivney, COO. “It was only a matter of time before we went big with a second release.”

Hammer Chain is brewed with American hop varieties, packed with flavors of drippy tropical fruit, radiant peach, and sweet stone fruit. The whole flower hops are ground onsite with Odell’s custom hammermill.

Hammer Chain Fresh Grind DIPA is available through July, on draft and in 6-pack cans across Odell’s 19-state footprint.
