Brewer: Doug Odell
During the first five years, the popularity of Odell's hand-crafted ales caught on. In fact, they became so popular that a larger facility was needed to handle the increasing demand. Thus a whole new brewery, with the current 50-barrel brewhouse, was built in 1994. After a 6 year commitment to an all-draft product, the brewery began bottling beers in 1996. A 10,500 square foot addition was needed to accommodate the addition of the new Krones bottling line. In 1997, the 5-barrel pilot system (one tenth the size of the commercial brewing vessels) was introduced for experimentation. The Odell brewers formulate new recipes, try out different yeasts and practice new production techniques on this system, with the best results ending up on tap in the Tasting Room. In 2000, convenient 12-packs of 90 Shilling and Easy Street were added. The brewery currently produces at an annual rate of over 28,000 barrels. Odell beers are available in bars, restaurants, and liquor stores throughout Colorado, and in Wyoming, South Dakota, Kansas, New Mexico, Nebraska, and Missouri, or online at Arctic Liquors.
