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.

One of the best brewery experiences I've ever had, hands down. This place is awesome. Great atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door. Huge seating area wraps around a giant L-shaped bar in front of you, and the merch station is immediately to your left. You order at the first leg of the L, and then wrap around to the other leg where the servers hook you up. Behind the registers where you ordered, there are bottles and 6ers to go, and you have a ton of growler options as well. They offer a standard flight of their flagships, as well as two separate "pilot" flights of their more fluctuating offerings. You can continue to snake through the building to find more seating throughout, some tables, some bartops, some benches, and some more casual seating, or you can go outside onto an expansive patio setup. Outside, there was a food truck serving some awesome grub. Plenty of seating outdoors, as well as some lawn space if you want to rock it picnic style. They offer tours on a normal schedule. On your way to the bathrooms, there is a tap serving soda, in case you have kids, or a DD, or both. Like I said, this place has it all. I didn't do the tour, because we were there fairly late on a Saturday afternoon, but there was no way I was passing up a visit. This place has been on my list forever. I urge anybody in the area...visit, and visit often!

Very cool place. Love the beer. Usually have interesting food trucks too. Only thing I didn't like was the fact that I couldn't choose my own flight: had to pick from pre-selected flights to go with fancy presentation tasting glass holders.
