Partnering with New Age, a team that shares our passion enables us to broaden the reach of Odyssey's award winning portfolio. Choosing New Age as our distribution partner was an easy decision, given their common commitment to quality, tremendous reach, and service in the market. We are excited to build Odyssey Beerwerks together with them."
