About Us:No Sponge Left Behind

Not too long ago, we took a closer look at the sponges in our kitchen and realized something profound. Almost every other product in the cleaning aisle has undergone some kind of evolution, while sponges have been the same for decades. We set out to turn the world of cleaning products on its head – combining design and environmental responsibility to create functional, beautiful, and responsible alternatives.

About Odells:
Doug Odell’s passion for crafting great beer started in his kitchen in Seattle. After the demand for his home-brew grew, Doug-along with his wife Wynne-searched for a good location to take Doug’s passion commercial. They moved to Fort Collins to be closer to Doug’s sister, Corkie, who quickly joined forces with them in opening the brewery in 1989.

After brewing and kegging his beer, Doug would deliver it, pick up empties, and make sales calls out of his old mustard-colored Datsun pickup. Our original brewery was located in an old grain elevator built in 1915, and was the second microbrewery to open in the state of Colorado. This brewery employed four floor levels to gravity-feed its beer from a 15-barrel brew kettle into open fermentation tanks, through cellaring and into draft kegs, the only package then offered.

During the first five years, the popularity of our hand-crafted ales grew so much that we needed a larger facility to meet 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, we 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 five barrel pilot system (one tenth the size of our main brewing system) was brought in to give the brewers a place to create and innovate in small batches. The Odell brewers are still creating new recipes, trying out different yeasts and practicing new techniques on this system, with the best results ending up on draft in the Tap Room.

We have invested significantly over the years to research new hop exposure processes, searching for ways to deliver the optimal flavor and aroma profiles to our selection of beers. The result, our delectable 5 Barrel Pale Ale, hopped in 8 stages with 6 different hops, and our newest member of the family, IPA, hopped in 7 stages with 6 different hops.

Today, Odell Brewing Co. also offers five different keg sizes and half-gallon draft jugs (available only at the brewery). Come visit us anytime, on Lincoln Avenue just three quarters of a mile east of downtown Fort Collins.

We currently produce at an annual rate of approximately 40,000 barrels. Odell beers are available in bars, restaurants, and liquor stores throughout Colorado, and in Wyoming, South Dakota, Kansas, New Mexico, Nebraska, and Missouri.

About Us:
We’ll set the scene.
1989. Belgium. Boy on bike. (Ok, make that a young man of 32).

As our aspiring young homebrewer rides his mountain bike with “fat tires” through European villages famous for beer, New Belgium Brewing Company was but a glimmer in his eye. Or basement. For Jeff Lebesch would return to Fort Collins with a handful of ingredients and an imagination full of recipes.

And then there was beer.

Jeff’s first two basement-brewed creations? A brown dubbel with earthy undertones named Abbey and a remarkably well-balanced amber he named Fat Tire. To say the rest was history would be to overlook his wife’s involvement. Kim Jordan was New Belgium’s first bottler, sales rep, distributor, marketer and financial planner.

And now, she’s our CEO.

Electrical engineer meets social worker; ideals flourish

The other side of the New Belgium story isn’t as romantic as bicycling through Europe, but it gives testament to our dedication and hard work. And it goes like this: Jeff, an electrical engineer by day and tinkerer by nature, builds a homebrewing kit in his basement out of repurposed dairy equipment. His Belgian inspired brews garnered enough praise from friends and neighbors that Jeff and Kim take their basement brewery commercial in 1991.

Kim, social worker by day and mother to two always, began the marketing process by knocking on their neighbor’s door. Anne Fitch was that neighbor and her watercolors are the artwork we continue to use on our labels today. With labeled bottles and local encouragement, the first Belgian-style beers brewed in the United States were officially for sale.

What else continues today? The ideals that Kim and Jeff built New Belgium Brewing Company on, from their basement operation to our first brewery in a railroad depot to our current sustainable home on 50 acres.

About Us:
It all started when three Boulder, Colorado based founders decided to develop and market an innovative type of footwear called Crocs™ Shoes.

Originally, Crocs™ Shoes were intended as a boating/outdoor shoe because of its slip-resistant, non-marking sole. By 2003, Crocs™ Footwear had become a bona-fide phenomenon, universally accepted as an all purpose shoe for comfort and fashion.

Today, Crocs™ Shoes are available all over the world and on the internet as we continue to significantly expand all aspects of our business.

Despite our rapid success, we still stand behind the core values of Crocs™ Footwear. We are committed to making a lightweight, comfortable, slip-resistant, fashionable and functional shoe, which can be produced quickly and at an affordable price to our customers. We thank you for your support and look forward to providing you with exciting new Crocs™ Shoe designs in the years to come.

About Us:
The Buffalo Collection comes from Scenic Mesa Ranch in western Colorado. It was born of necessity: the natural buffalo meat business was producing a stack of green hides and the ranch lodges needed some rugged furniture that could take the wear and tear of cowboys and outdoorsmen. Our core line includes an 8’ sofa with tight back and three cushions, a club chair and ottoman. Buffalo leather is strong, soft, and thick. We tan our hides in Salt Lake City. The furniture is made in High Point NC and in Denver.

We are proud of our strong hardwood frames, hand-tied springs, and old-fashioned upholstery skill. Settle into those down-filled cushions and a nap is inevitable.
