Beer Enthusiasts Rejoice As Old Chicago Launches New Explorer Series Featuring Exclusive Odell Beers in Its Colorado Restaurants

- Tapping Event Begins on Aug. 25 with New Selections from Odell Brewing Company -

BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, a traditional casual dining restaurant known for its expansive selection of craft beers, is entering new beer territory with the launch of its Old Chicago Explorer Series. This series, kicking off today, will feature one brewery for a two to three-week period, offering four to six beers that capture the most unique flavors in the craft beer world, and will be exclusive to Old Chicago. Offered at locations throughout Colorado, the first installment of the series will include selections from Fort Collins-based Odell Brewing Company until the tap runs out. 

Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom

For nearly four decades, beer aficionados have praised Old Chicago's expansive lineup of world-class craft beers. To continue this tradition, Daniel Imdieke, Old Chicago's new manager of beer operations and avid craft beer lover, teamed up with Odell brewer Tony Rau to create a Gose – a sour and salty wheat beer originating from Goslar, Germany. As a result, "Comes & Gose" was born and will be served exclusively at Old Chicago's Colorado locations during the series.

"We're really excited to launch the Old Chicago Explorer Series this month and feature exclusive craft beers not currently available anywhere else," said Imdieke. "We want to be at the forefront of bringing new, exciting and fun beers to our restaurants, encouraging guests to break out of their comfort zones and explore different styles of beer, as well as try expert beer pairings, which will only be available for a limited time."

In addition to Comes & Gose, the Old Chicago Explorer Series also will feature the following selections during Odell's installment available Aug. 25 until it runs out:

  • Perle White IPA: This Perle hop shines in this crisp white IPA, with an herbal and fruit-like hop character that mingles with the delicate wheat for a clean crisp finish.
  • Loose Leaf – This crisp and refreshing brew is like any respectable session ale, but a bit more hop-forward and flavorful than some.
  • Oktoberfest – This seasonal amber lager is brewed with generous amounts of Munich malts that give it a toasty, biscuit aroma and delicious malty sweetness.

As an added perk, guests who try the Odell brews can keep the limited edition Odell/Old Chicago glass for just $2.

A leader in the traditional casual dining space, Old Chicago has been serving handcrafted cuisine and local craft beers in Colorado and across the nation for 37 years. Old Chicago is committed to quality creations and to showcasing Colorado-based brewers while providing great value in a welcoming atmosphere.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
