Had a great time at Odell while we were in Fort Collins visiting some of my wife's family. We started off the day at Odell and had a great time throughout. The atmosphere was super laid-back and everyone there was incredibly friendly. It probably didn't hurt that we were there right when they opened on a weekday.
Plenty of things on draft and all available in samplers, which was nice. Got to try out plenty of things I hadn't had before and also picked up some glassware and a t-shirt. Great selection of breweriana. All the beers were quite good, reminding me of why I'm jealous that we don't get Odell's beer out East, other than a few times a year for Philly Beer Week, SAVOR week, etc.
Would love to return.

My wife and I visited Colorado on our honeymoon and I wanted to try beer not available to us in Ohio. ODell was my choice for that, and I am happy that this was what we picked. The brewpub was modern, well lit and had plenty of room for the patrons. The beers were all good (my wife and I went with two samplers, then I had a pint that we didn't have on the samplers). I didn't get a completely accurate count of handles but it was in the neighborhood of 18.
The service was great and the staff were all friendly. They were more than happy to answer all my beer questions and discuss my selection. We did not go there hungry, and they did not have their own food available but there was a guy out front operating a taco stand. Overall, both my wife and I were very happy we stopped here, and I wish we got their stuff in Ohio.

Nice size tasting room with many tables surrounding the bar. They even have a little area where a small band can play. Also have a cooler with special to go bottles and the "normal" stuff
I had the higher AbV sampler tray which was all the specialties. They were all either good, above average or awesome; no duds. Service was quite pleasant and very helpful with selections. Definitely worth a stop for the great casual atmosphere and their specialty offerings you can get in the stores or cost twice as much in the store.

This is my favorite brewery. I go here every chance I get. Anytime I fly back home to see family I try to make the trek. You gotta love the 90 Shilling, Cutthroat Porter, Levity, but my overall favorite to come out of Odell has to be the Footprint RegionAle. Just a perfect balance of barley, honey, hops, and all the regional ingredients.
They have an excellent tasting room, with plenty of space so you never feel cramped. The guys that run the tour are very knowledgeable and open to questions (not mindless robots). Best of all they pour you a beer before the tour not like most that make you wait to taste. I finished my beer (cuz its so good) by the time we got to fermentation so the guide told me to go back and get another and catch up. Amazing micro brewery, I wish all the best for these guys.

Great location to drink. The tour of the facility was the best I have had. The staff are tremendously helpful, knowledgable and friendly. They have a very streamlined process for ordering and paying, their sampler had an incredible display of their range. The bourbon barrel aged beer you got to try for free on the tour was fantastic. I could easily spend the whole day in their trying everything they had on tap and probably not be able to try them all.
I highly recommend visiting this brewery, it was fun and educational. I wish I could get their beer out on the East Coast.

This is one of the best breweries in the state.
With so many craft breweries popping up all over Colorado, these guys just seem to brew only great beers.
When I am in Fort Collins, I always make my way to Odell's.
I heard they are doing another expansion, to make the tap room even bigger with and outside stage area and really making the experience better, the only complaint I could possibly have is when they are having an event, it can get a little too crowded. But as far as the beer goes, it absolutely the best I have tried.
It is must go to if you are anywhere in Colorado.

This brewery is one that should be bigger and more known. It's quaint in size, but they're known for their massive hoppy beers. I had the pleasure of living a couple miles away, and I miss it everyday. I had many fun, memorable days playing corn hole, drinking delicious brews, hanging with good, real people, and watching Odell grow in popularity in the short time I lived in FoCo. I can't wait to go back. Maybe someday they'll ship out here to Florida... In terms of food, they always seem to have "Jax Seafood" tent setup outside. The seafood is quality for being in Colorado, but I'm from the beach, I have had some of the best and most fresh seafood around. So I am a little biased. IPA, Myrcenary, Cutthroat Porter, Wooden Elephant (when available), St. Lupulin are just a few of the must try beers.

Caught this place on an afternoon when it was the finish line of a bike race so the atmosphere was festive and the place was hopping. It is fairly large place which suited the day well. Despite it being so busy, the service was outstanding and the servers were great. The service was quick at the bar and at table. The staff is very knowledgeable and took time with the customers even with how busy it was. The beers are fantastic, as well. They have all types to fit a variety of beer tastes. Can't say enough good things about the place. Enjoyed the afternoon I spent there thoroughly and will definitely make it a point to hit this place again next time I'm in Fort Collins.

Next stop, Odell. Unlike New Belgium, parking is plentiful, even during the week of Great American Beer Festival. Delivery trucks sporting the Odell logo sit above the parking lot, perched on a hill. A winding sidewalk leads the way into the taproom and brewery.
No surprise, the place was busy. One of the first things you come across when you enter is the line to order your beer. It's nice to see there's a formal place to make your order (unlike New Belgium) and collect your order on the other side of the bar. And it's very organized too, as multiple pick-up stations prevent orders from being mixed up, so props to Odell for developing an unorthodox (yet very workable) model for service.
20 different beers on-tap, plus a cask. Variety is the key, as it ranges from year round beers (Easy Street Wheat, Cutthroat Porter, Odell IPA) to more experimental beers (Meddler, Bourbon Porter, Proletarat). With pints starting at $4 (and available in pre-set flights and half-pints), it makes trying the entire family a lot easier.
There's no food served on sight unless you're lucky enough to catch a food truck. We were lucky to catch a Naples-styled pizzeria cooking on sight, which aided in the absorption of alcohol.
I'm unable to purchase Odell in California, so I was very happy to visit and sample what I can't. Arguably one of the most underrated production breweries in the country, in my opinion, and a must visit.

Stopped here while in Colorado for work. Actually, made it a destination. OK, I'll be truthful, I orchestrated the whole "work trip" just to visit Odell. I had recently been introduced to Odell by the recommendation of a co-worker while in Missouri, as sadly, Odell is not available in most states to which I travel.
First Odell I tried was Myrcenary- double IPA. Absolutely AWESOME! I knew at that first sip, I must go to this place they call "Odell". Very cool atmosphere, very nice, inviting interior with ample seating. I brought along my 2 year old daughter (designated driver) and my lady friend, and we had a great time. They had some live music outside and it was just a cool vibe. Very friendly staff.
Food was sparse, though I'll admit I can't remember the whole small menu, we just grabbed some chips and salsa to munch on. Salsa was awesome by the way. Beer was phenomenal, had Myrcenary and the porter. (OK, a few Myrcenary's). I should have done a flight or two since I am relatively new to this company, but next time.
They close kind of early also, like 7 PM on the Saturday we were there. Actually was "prompted" to move along a little after 7. Not a deal breaker, but I would have liked to hang longer.
Worth a stop if you are in Ft. Collins. Worth a drive if you are anywhere near this place. I can't wait to go back.
