This past week we had the pleasure to attend the Odell Brewing Company party to celebrate their new expansion. Live music, a smorgasbord of local cuisine, and of course great beer, what's not to like!
The expansion is impressive and effectively doubles the size of the brewery. The new Mueller tanks in the three story fermentation area is a thing of beauty. There was also a who's who of the Colorado brewing industry in attendance. This was the first time I got the chance to meet some of the people I've seen speak at various conferences and festivals, such as Doug Odell, Lauren Salazar, and Peter Bouckaert. It was really an honor to meet Peter who is probably my biggest hero and influence in the brewing world.
We also got a chance to talk to some of the newer breweries such as Colin at Equinox Brewing Company in Fort Collins and Tim at Strange Brewing in Denver
Overall, it was a great time. Thank you, Doug!
