Not a lot to say about Odell that probably hasn't been said before. The new facility is MASSIVE so there's a ton of room, seats, and tables. Everything has a wood finish and there are probably 30-40 tables, hundreds of chairs, a large patio, and plenty of standing room, too. That said, keep in mind that the place is also very popular and it WILL fill in during peak times.
As for the beer, they sell bottles, pints, samples, 1/2 pints, clothing, and pretty much anything else you can imagine although they really don't have much in the way of food most of the time.
What kinds of beer are available? They have their entire everyday line-up always ready to go and they tend to have 7-8 small batch items and seasonals at any one time, too.
They keep 3 sampler options available all of the time so you can get a little bit of everything. The normal tray has items like Cutthroat, Easy Street, and 90 Shilling. They have a "pilot tray" with their seasonals and rarities (Mountain Standard, Red, DIPA) and maybe a one-off or two. Finally, they have a "co-pilot" tray typically featuring brewery-only items and ultra-special items like Woodcut. They offer description cards for the beers, but the staff doesn't always seem to know much about what they have.
BA members get a free tray and prices for the other trays and pints are only $4-7 each.
Odell is pretty much the cornerstone for all of my Ft. Collins trips and I don't see that changing any time soon.
The only real negative is that even with all of the space the place tends to get really crowded during the months when the patio is closed. When it's busy they can be pretty slow in busing out tables and spots when people have left. (1,692 characters)

From the outside it's a beautiful brewery. You walk in and the place is alive and bustling with solid music. Well designed interior and the beer selection is nice with about 13 of their beers on tap. My only regret is that I showed up after 2 PM which is when they stopped the tasters. (285 characters)

Tasty brews, great service, really good vibe.
I fell in love with O'Dell while living in Fort collins.. It was a good break from New Belgium.. Eventually I would a bond on NB altogether and ride on down the road to ODells. .
The Cucumber seasonal was my favorite go to for summertime BBQ'S (290 characters)

Quite easily the coolest brewery tour/taproom I've ever been to. Gorgeous, large new building with a fantastic patio. Tour guides are knowledgeable and entertaining. Odell brews some of the best beers around, and it is clear that the employees enjoy working there. If heading to Ft. Collins with limited time, skip New Belgium and spend an afternoon on the deck at Odell. (375 characters)

My favorite place to visit when in Fort Collins. It is often the very first place I visit. I have been here at least 4 times, and every time is a new and unique experience.
Odells beers speak for themselves. My favorite is Mercenary and is always my standard for an ipa. At the brewery they have numerous other brews on tap that you otherwise would not find. They have ample seating, both in door and out door, and an extensive gift shop. It definitely is family friendly, and they do tours which I think are free and you get samples.

They often have food trucks around, and the food is awesome as well.

Next time you are close to Fort Collins, Odells has to be the first place you visit! (693 characters)
