The liquid libations created by Odell Brewing are making a big splash this week as they launch in the Twin Cities market. Starting today, the Colorado-based brewery's founder, Doug Odell, and head brewer, Joe Mohrfeld, will be attending a whopping *30* different beer-related tastings/dinners/events at beer-savvy bars, restaurants, and retailers around the Twin Cities. Odell is based in Fort Collins and a pioneer of American craft brewer, with more than two decades of business behind it. According to Odell's press release, Jason Alvey of Four Firkins is a big fan:

"I'm VERY happy to see [Odell Brewing] beers will be landing soon here in Minnesota," said Jason Alvey, owner of The Four Firkins specialty beer store. "Some of our customers who travel to Colorado have brought [Odell] beers back here as gifts for us at the Firkins! They are always handed over with a sense of reverence and special occasion. We love them."
