Founded: 1989 by Doug Odell
Odell Brewing Company’s eye-catching art work perfectly sums up the brewery’s ethos: artistic, laid-back, nature loving. They describe themselves as ‘Righteously Independent’, and it has been that way since they started in 1989. The beers are described as rooted in British styles – there aren’t many breweries making a warming amber Scottish 90 Shilling Ale for example, especially in their core range. Their beautifully golden IPA, using nine hop varieties is a fabulous example. These Denver guys and gals certainly know how to make great beer, and their new barrel ageing sour beer programme is really exciting.
