10 Barrel Heads to Colorado


It took just six months for Anheuser-Busch InBev to expand distribution for 10 Barrel Brewing, the Bend, Ore. craft brewery it purchased last November.

The company today announced it would launch in Colorado this month, the fourth state where its beers are currently sold.

“Colorado is a beer-savvy state and we look forward to becoming a part of the craft community here” 10 Barrel co-founder Jeremy Cox said in a press statement. “We sent our crew to visit Denver last month and learned that few Denverites know much about 10 Barrel. We plan to change that and will be hosting a variety of events across Denver throughout the year.”

At the time of the brewery’s sale, 10 Barrel co-founder Garrett Wales told Brewbound that its short-term plan was to grow sales in pre-existing markets before expanding into new territories.

“We are going to continue pushing the envelope with our beers, support our local markets and take care of the home turf,” he said at the time.

10 Barrel’s year-round and limited offerings, including Apocalypse IPA, Joe IPA, Cucumber Crush, DUB and Swill, will be available at on-and-off premise retail accounts in Colorado this month, according to a release.

A spokesman for the company also told Brewbound that no additional new markets are being announced at this time.
