Odell has recently undergone a major renovation which included doubling the tap room and outdoor patio areas. Where it used to be a small, often crowded place to get a pint or sampler tray, it's now, well, still just as hoppin' but with more area to spread out.

The rustic/mountain-modern architecture is cool and there is apparently a lot of "green" energy saving features as well. They grow their own hops too and the entry doors have hop plants climbing up either side.

Inside, there is a long granite bar that serves as a place to pick up your pint (not sit down and enjoy it) and then you wander to one of the many indoor or outdoor tables. The patio is really where it's at. A great wrap-around stone patio with lots of shade. It's reasonably quiet too even though it's near the street.

The beers at Odell are fantastic. Their regular line up, which you can have on the 'pilot tray' are exellent examples of English/American styles - pale ale, porter, amber, and wheat. If you want to be more adventurous (and if you're on this site, you probably do) try their 'co-piot' tray which has a variety of one-offs and specialty brews. At the time when I was there, they had double pale ale, barleywine, American wild ale, and others. Great selection then, with probably about 15 beers on tap at any given time.

Service is reasonably good but keep in mind, just as with New Belgium, these places get crowded (even on a Monday afternoon) so don't expect a long thoughtfull conversation from the bartender on the hop varieties used in their IPA. That being said, they're usually very friendly and efficient at getting the masses served in a reasonable time.

Overall a great place and one I prefer to other craft brewries in town because the atmosphere and service are good but, most importantly, the beers are outstanding.

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!
