The founder of 10 Barrel Brewing Company is none other than the dynamic duo of twin brothers, Chris and Jeremy Cox. These enterprising siblings embarked on their brewing journey back in 2006, when they made the bold decision to leave their corporate jobs in Portland behind and set their sights on the picturesque town of Bend, Oregon.
With a deep passion for brewing and an unwavering commitment to quality, the Cox brothers wasted no time in transforming their humble bar into a thriving brewpub. Drawing inspiration from Bend's vibrant craft beer scene, they set out to create unique and innovative brews that would capture the hearts and taste buds of beer enthusiasts far and wide.
The success of their brewpub led the brothers to expand their operation, and in 2010, they opened the doors to their very own production brewery under the name 10 Barrel Brewing Company. This marked a significant milestone in their brewing journey, as they now had the capacity to meet the growing demand for their beers beyond the walls of their brewpub.
Since its inception, 10 Barrel Brewing Company has gained a reputation for pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo. Their commitment to pushing the limits of flavor and experimentation has led to the creation of a wide range of unique and award-winning beers.
One of the defining characteristics of 10 Barrel Brewing Company is their unwavering dedication to community and collaboration. They have forged strong partnerships with local businesses and organizations, hosting events and fundraisers to support various causes. This spirit of community extends beyond Bend, as they have also established brewpubs in other cities across the United States, including Portland, Boise, Denver, and San Diego.
As a sommelier and brewer, I have had the pleasure of experiencing the exceptional craftsmanship and creativity that goes into each pint of 10 Barrel beer. From their flagship IPA, Apocalypse, with its bold hop profile and citrusy notes, to the refreshing and crisp Cucumber Crush, their commitment to quality and innovation shines through in every sip.
Chris and Jeremy Cox are the visionary founders behind 10 Barrel Brewing Company. Their passion for brewing, commitment to quality, and dedication to community have propelled the brewery to great heights. With their continued innovation and creativity, it's clear that the Cox brothers are just getting started in their mission to craft exceptional beers that captivate and delight beer lovers around the world.
