Well I'm sure I can't pull 250 words together for Odell. I love this place would probably do just fine. ALL the best beers in Fort Collins a great new patio. With a fire pit and some of the best food trucks in town. $1 oysters on Thursdays form Jax Old Town Peral and Common Link on the weekends. If I have a beer on tap at home it's normally from these guys. SUCH good beer a must try for anyone in Colorado.

If the food trucks are out this place is heaven, if they're not, its only just slightly less perfect. They're the best brewery in Northern Colorado in my book. The beers are superb and it seems like they've always got something new going on as a local collab, if you're in FC go here.

Odell's rocks my world! They are, and will always be, in my top 3 favorite breweries ever. They're all about the beer, and it definitely shows. Mountain Standard (a winter-seasonal double black IPA is, hands down, my favorite beer and the only reason I tolerate winter in Colorado). Myrcernary, an imperial IPA packs a punch, both in flavor and in ABV and perfectly showcases Colorado hops and Odells' ability to make a strong, yet drinkable beer. I would live here if I could, seriously.

Is this heaven? Yes! This place is hands down my favorite brewery in Colorado. The consistency and quality of the beer is the best I've ever had. The tap room has the happiest employees I've ever met. This is the best place to have a perfect beer and meet the friendliest people. Drink up!

Right down the street from New Belgium. I liked the atmosphere at NB better but this place has better beer. I would recommend getting a flight or two, depending on how many people you are with. I was with four people and we purchased 3 different flights and shared so we cold sample as many beers as possible. I thought the Nitro Cut Throat Porter was the best beer. My wife is a hop head so we purchased a growler of the 5 Barrel Pale Ale to take with us.

Really love coming to O'Dells for their release parties, and the three options they have for sampler trays really give the beer drinker of any experience level something exciting and engaging. Recently they've redone their patio, adding an awesome gas fireplace and a stage. Can't wait until it warms up again and I can thoroughly enjoy the live music and world-class brews. Always something interesting on the rotating taps (A wild fermented mash that's allowed to fester? Yes, please) and on the weekends there's usually one of Fort Collins many awesome food trucks there for the drunchies. By far the best larger brewery I've been to. GO!

Odell's popular brewery has gone through a couple of facelifts since I first walked through its doors a few years ago. Its original tap room has expanded with more tables and booths, a larger merchandise area, a redone, attractive walk-in hallway, and an outdoor patio that now stretches to two sides of the building. The public parking lot is now on the opposite side of the building and expanded with newer, larger bike racks, shaped in the Odell-logo leaf.

What was already a fantastic brewery to visit is now even better, with the occasional food truck, live music, and a constant, bustling crowd. Odell has always had a generous supply of beers, from their standard selection, to a rotating and seasonal pilot menu, to their limited and special brews. The staff is friendly and fast, even when there's a sizable line, which there often is.

It also has one of the more ideal non-Old Town locations, centered among a number of other breweries and within long walking or short bike riding distance of New Belgium, Fort Collins, Funkwerks as well as the Old Town breweries Coopersmith's, Equinox, and Pateros Creek. It's a Fort Collins standby and is not to be missed for any beer lovers.

biked over to Odell from the Ft Collins bike library - a really gorgeous facility from the exterior.

It was a nice (read: blazing sun, bone-dry air) day in Fort Collins so we enjoyed the expansive patio area. All beers were served in large branded goblets.

I'm a little torn on Odell - I like most of their beer, but I don't really love any of it. That sentiment was definitely true on this visit as well.

Regardless, an enjoyable experience. There was a really fantastic food truck on the grounds as well. Definitely check out "The Goodness" - they have a freaking big green egg in the truck for crying out loud

I spent so many Friday evenings here during my years in Fort Collins- before, during, and after the expansion/remodel. It is hands down my favorite brewery to visit. Very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, always a wide array of incredible beers on tap. I used to obsess over the IPA on nitro. Also, the small batch fest (which was a little out of control the last couple of times I went) was always one of the highlights of my year. Great beer, great atmosphere. I love Odell and miss it everyday.

- Have been here many times and bar none favorite brewery in Fort Collins- (Funkwerks second). High quality beer, to which one of the best in the state. Only drawback had bad experience with one of the retail peeps; sent me to the back of line cuz she thought I cut. I certainly didn't and one of her co-worker rectified by giving free beer tokens :). Overall undoubtedly will not be disappointed.
