Three Companies. One Distribution Powerhouse.

Who is Northwest Beverages?

NW Beverages is a partnership of The Odom Corporation and Craig Stein Beverage. They represent a world-class portfolio of craft & import beer, cider, fine wine, artisan spirits and non-alcoholic beverages. Their territory covers King, Snohomish, Pierce, Thurston, Kitsap, Mason, Jefferson, Clallam & Island counties.


The company is committed to giving you great selection and personalized service. Their mission is to market and distribute premium beverages for the mutual reward and growth of their customers, suppliers and employees.


The company was created in January of 2017, when CSB and The Odom Corporation announced the sale of Click Distributing to CSB and a partnership between CSB and Odom to found and co-own NW Beverages.


The ownership teams believe the benefit from the combined organization will enhance the resources and expertise to better serve the growing needs and competitive challenges of this regional market: from Seattle to Vancouver to Boise to Coeur D’Alene to Spokane. The existing Click organizations will continue to operate independently for the foreseeable future. Click will offer its highly successful personnel and best practices to the overall Odom and CSB organizations and vice versa. This unique combination will make the whole greater than the sum of the parts. Click management and substantially all of the Click staff will continue with the new organization including Jim Florio as the Vice President/General Manager of the Western WA Click operation and Terry Nichols as Vice President/General Manager of the Eastern WA/North ID Click operation; Rick Steckler and Josh Davis will provide consulting services for the overall group.


Craig Stein, owner and CEO of Craig Stein Beverage, said,


We are excited that the strength of Odom and CSB combined with the addition of the Click organizations will create a larger and stronger Northwest distribution network. We are confident this will lead to increased market service and penetration capabilities that would be an additional benefit to the suppliers and customers of all the involved companies.

With the experienced leadership of all three distributors, 125+ years in business, and 2000 employees working together, Northwest Beverages will become the leading beverage distribution solution across the region. Providing suppliers with a full-service marketing, sales, and delivery solution built for the long haul.
