Visited in September 2011 the weekend prior to GABF '11. I was in town for work and happened to visit on the day that their bourbon barrel stout was tapped for 2011. There was a very festive vibe about the place, and the seating area is very nicely put together with fresh decor. For the tap party, they had a live band outside with food vendors. Many folks cycled to the brewery, and they had a receptacle to recycle the plastic water cups. I had a half-pint of the bourbon-barrel stout for a reasonable price and then headed down the street to Ft. Collins Brewery. The staff is super-friendly here as well. Will come back every time I'm in the area!

Took the free tour of the brewey after having some great pints of IPA and sesonal offerings in the tap room. plus you can take your beer with you on the tour!!!! very good info form the guide of the tour all the way though. got to smell the acutal hops they used and see the barrel aging room AWESOME! The canning line is very high tech and got to meet a couple of the brewers. They were droping small hints of what they were up to but would not give details. Cant wait to see what the spring line could be? Overall the hour trip up north was well worth it. left their with a growler of naked elephant and a bottle of avent pech' only about $20.

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.

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!

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.

This is definitely one of my favorite breweries. It's a small/medium size operation with a close, familial, intimate staff that is passionate about their beer. Our tour guide was hilarious and engaging - a great experience. If you are in the neighborhood, Odell is absolutely worth your stop.

Their taproom is one of the best I have been to. Not only do they have some of their classics on tap, they also have an interesting selection from their pilot system - some different twists on their usual brews and some totally different experiences. Most of the other reviews have hit the nail on the head. I don't need to add anything new - just another vote for the greatness of Odell.

Odell Brewing Company is great. The people are super friendly and they give great tours. They have a well rounded knowledgeable staff. In my experience if they don't have an answer for a question they will find someone who knows. Odell Brewing Company isn't a huge operation which makes it comfortable and personable. The beer there is consistently impressive and I am always pleased with my experience. It is also right down the road from New Belgium which makes for a great tasting touring day. Everyone around here is passionate about good beer.

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.
