With the second release in this series we partnered with the talented Brewers at Odell Brewing Co to create a savory pickle that captures the tropical-fruit like flavor and pungent aroma of their beautifully bold and balanced Myrcenary Double IPA. Utilizing not a single drop of finished beer, but rather the same ingredients used to make the beer, the result is a product that creatively marries the the crafts of brewing and brining.
Using Myrcenary’s hopped wort as the primary ingredient, we built a brine around it using flavors that the Mycenary Double IPA evokes such as fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and grapefruit zest. We then dry hopped the brine for 2 weeks and threw a whole hop cone in ever jar just for good measure. Imagine the Myrcenary Double IPA in pickle form, and thats what you have here. Lots of beer character and hoppiness.

What is the Briners & Brewers series?
The Briners & Brewers Series is a collaborative series that emerged from our love for craft food & beer. For each release we partner with a craft brewery to make a pickle based off of one of their beers. Utilizing not a single drop of beer, but rather the same raw ingredients used to make the beer, the result is a product that creatively marries the crafts of brewing & brining.
How long will these be available?
Not long. The total number of jars available is listed above the “Add to Cart” button. Once they are gone they will most likely be gone forever.
How do you get them so crunchy?
There are a lot of precautions that we take to make them so crisp, but the single most important thing is never compromising when it comes to the quality of ingredients and making sure we get the freshest cucumbers we can find.
How long do they last?
They’ll last as long as it takes you to eat them as long as all of the product inside of the jar is submersed in the brine. If one of the pickles is sticking out above the brine and it sits like that for several months it can develop mold. Otherwise they won’t go bad. We do, however recommend eating them within one year of when they were made. The date that they were made is stamped on the jar. After one year they will start to degrade in quality and become less crunchy.
Do they need to be refrigerated?
Only after they have been opened. Until then they are safe to be stored in a cool, dark place.
Is it gluten free?
No, because this is made with brewing malts and grains this is the only product of ours that is not gluten free.
Is it vegan?
Is that a whole hop cone in the jar?!
Are these fermented?
No they are preserved using a vinegar-based brine.
Do these pickles contain alcohol?
Where do the cucumbers come from?
Depending on the time of year they may come from Colorado, California, Florida, Georgia, Mexico, Michigan, or wherever we can find the best quality cucumbers at the time.
Do you make them or are they made by a contractor?
We do not contract out any production. We make everything in our own facility (called the Dillery) in Denver, Colorado.To view a more extensive list of Frequently Asked Questions, please visit our FAQ page.
