On December 1st, Odd Breed Wild Ales will celebrate its first year in business with a block party and beer festival in Old Town Pompano Beach featuring specialty beers from Odd Breed and other breweries, as well as live music and food trucks.
Odd Breed is the first and only brewery in Florida to focus exclusively on the production of wild ales fermented and aged in oak barrels. While most beers are ready in just a couple weeks, Odd Breed uses an uncompromising approach to craft beers that are entirely natural and spend several months up to a few years in oak barrels before they are ready. Odd Breed was recently honored as one of the Top 10 Best New Breweries by USA Today, and was selected as one of the Top 3 Best Small Breweries in the country by Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine.
The anniversary party will be held in Old Town Pompano in and outside Odd Breed’s brewery at 50 NE 1stSt. from 4-8pm (3-8pm for VIP ticket holders). You must be 21 or older to drink, but this is a family friendly event. There will be 20 Florida breweries in attendance, serving all styles from wild and sour beers to IPAs, Stouts, Lagers, and experimental beers. There will be live Latin-Jazz music by 3 time Grammy award nominated Negroni’s Trio and Fusik will bring some deep pocket funk.
VIP ticket holders will be permitted to enter the festival grounds an hour early, and will receive a tasting glass for unlimited sampling. There will be an exclusive VIP tent featuring rare Odd Breed beers in addition to traditional Lambic from the likes of Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen, as well as unique creations from other Belgian and American producers. VIP ticket holders will receive a bottle of Odd Breed’s 1st Anniversary Ale, which is a very unique blend of two strong wild ales aged in rare wine and whiskey barrels before refermenting with organic black plums.
For those that want to party but aren’t interested in the VIP ticket, there is an All You Can Drink option (no VIP access and no anniversary bottle) as well as a ticketed pay as you go option.
