Mixed Culture at Odious
In the production of mixed-culture fermentations, there is a second creative force at work, the yeast and bacteria. They're ever-evolving, creating new flavors and aromas over time. At Odious we act more as a partner to the culture, helping to guide its path instead of determining its outcome. This is why blending is an integral part of mixed-culture beers; each batch we make is part of an ongoing conversation with the recipe. Because of this interplay between the culture and our own goals, each vintage of a beer will present a new experience as our house culture undergoes continuous change, along with the seasonality of fruit, malt, and hops we use in each batch.
