Dear Friends, Family, Fellow Distillers, and Spirit Lovers,
Odd Society has three important announcements to share with you!
Changing of the Guard: a Farewell and a Welcome
Odd Society is sad to announce that Joshua Beach, our illustrious co-distiller, is leaving Odd Society and moving to Ontario. Josh’s long-term plan was always to move back home and now seemed an opportune time, after more than a decade in Europe and almost three years in Vancouver. As luck and timing would have it, Josh has landed an incredible job near his home town as Master Distiller for a massive distillery being built in Niagara-on-the-Lake called the Wayne Gretzky Distillery. Be sure to look out for their whisky in a few years’ time. We extend Josh a huge thank you for all his innovations at Odd Society and wish him success in his new adventure and new stage in life.
On a happier note, Odd Society is pleased to announce that we have hired an assistant distiller, Joel McNichol. Joel worked for several years as a brewer and jack-of-all-trades at R & B Brewing and has been training with Josh over the last month. Joel will be working his magic in the back, mashing and fermenting, and ultimately taking on distilling duties. Join us in extending Joel a big warm welcome!
Odd Society presents Beer on Tap!
Wallflower Gin meets Ode to Citra Beer
Barrel aging beer is a time tested tradition that leads to wonderful malt libations. Now that we are allowed to serve beer in our lounge, we decided it was time to take the next step and start collaborating with the many fabulous neighbors that surround us. Several weeks ago, we dropped off some empty oaken gin barrels at Powell Street Brewery, just down the street, which they promptly filled with Ode to Citra beer. Dave, master brewer, recently deemed the beer ready. It’s been kegged, carbonated, and is ready to drink. This will be the first in a series of experimental, collaborative beers using Odd Society barrels that we will be serving. Please join us for a glass of Ode to Wallflower beer on tap starting this Thursday, April 7, while limited supplies last! We are staying open an extra hour this Thursday. Ode to Wallflower is available at the distillery only.
Chickpea Food Truck Debut, Saturday, April 9th!
This Saturday, April 9, is the grand opening debut of the Chickpea Food Truck, Vancouver latest addition to the vibrant food truck scene! Check out their delish veggie/vegan food and be a part of the coming chickpea revolution. The Chickpea Food Truck will be parked outside Odd Society Spirits this Saturday starting at 4:30. Please come join us for a delicious drink and a tasty treat!
