Alamo Drafthouse And Odell Brewing Release ZEST BURSTER, A New ALIEN Themed IPA

Happy Alien Day!

The world’s filled with silly, arbitrary holidays. However, the world has also been a bit of a dumpster fire lately. So, why not celebrate what we can? If that celebration happens to revolve around the Alien franchise, even better! Today’s Alien Day, and the Alamo Drafthouse is releasing a new IPA to celebrate the upcoming film Alien: Covenant

The new IPA, Zest Burster, will hit Alamo Drafthouse locations in Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska and Arizona in May. The beer is a collaboration between Odell Brewing and Alamo Drafthouse, and will only be around so long as supplies last. It’s the third collaboration between the two companies, and promises a citrusy, hoppy bite fit for all your beer-loving needs!

Alamo Drafthouse and Odell Brewing are pleased to announce the arrival of a new, otherworldly limited-batch IPA. Open your airlocks, beer fans, for Zest Burster Citrus IPA. Hatched with a big citrus bite thanks to Citra and Cascade hop varieties and an orange peel finish, this rare breed brew will be available throughout the month of May at Alamo Drafthouse locations in Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, and Arizona, while supplies last.

"This is a refreshing beer that'll pair nicely with ANY movie watching this summer at Alamo Drafthouse, but it'll go especially well with Sir Ridley's deep space movie,” says John Gross, Director of National Beer Promotions at Alamo Drafthouse.” We're extremely proud to be serving this creatively hop-forward beer from such an innovative and respected brewery like Odell."

Zest Burster Citrus IPA is the third in a line of deliciously drinkable co-presentations between Alamo Drafthouse and the Fort Collins, Colorado, craft beer powerhouse. Bursting with full-flower hop flavor, this latest creation is sure to set the hearts of hopheads racing.

“Citra and Cascade hops are renowned for their bright, tongue-biting flavor profiles,” explains Bill Beymer, Odell Brewing Head Brewer. “These beauties were added throughout the brew, after the brew, and even after fermentation, along with a healthy dose of orange zest for good measure. Zest Burster explodes with aroma and complexity.”

Zest Burster Citrus IPA is a draft-only offering, available at Alamo Drafthouse locations and a very small number of other outlets across the country. Supplies are very limited. Once Zest Burster Citrus IPA is gone, it’s gone for good - no sequels, resurrections, or reboots.
