Odell Announces New Illinois Distributor Partners

Colorado’s Odell Brewing Company, the 19th largest craft brewer in the US, has four new distribution partners in Illinois.

Odell entered Illinois in 2017 through a statewide partnership with Breakthru Beverage Group. Breakthru Beverage Group has recently announced their intention to exit the beer distribution business in Illinois, leaving Odell Brewing the opportunity to partner with new distributors.

“We’d like to thank Breakthru for their efforts to establish Odell Brewing in Illinois over the past three years, and we are extremely excited to be working with our new partners,” explains Director of Sales JR Wheeler. “As we build out our distribution footprint, we have nothing but blue sky in the Illinois market to grow our brands with our new partners.”

Odell Brewing has partnered with Windy City Distributing (a DBA of Chicago Beverage Systems, L.L.C. and part of the larger Reyes Beer Division network) in the Chicagoland area. They have also joined with Marketplace Selections, G&M Distributors and LaMonica Beverages to cover their distribution throughout Illinois’ Heartland markets.

“The Windy City Distributing team has been a fan of Odell Brewing for as long as I can remember. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with them in the Chicagoland area,” explains Bob Collins, President of Windy City Distributing. “Their diverse portfolio, dedication to quality and commitment to “giving back” makes them a perfect match for our team.”

“Our fans here in Illinois can look forward to discovering all of our best brands in more locations than ever before,” explains Gus Briggs, Odell Brewing Illinois Area Manager.  “Including brand new innovations such as our new Allkind Hard Kombucha.”

Odell fans will continue to find brands like Sippin Pretty Fruited Sour and Mountain Standard among others in their portfolio, as well as bringing new innovations to the market including our Allkind Hard Kombucha.
