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.

First stop on our Fort Collins beer tour.

Beautiful set up, large, with a nice open gift shop, bar area, plenty of indoor seating, and awesome outdoor seating areas as well.

Quality is quite good. As most everyone knows, Odell is one of the best old school beer makers in Colorado, hard to pick a bad beer here. Selection was great as well, they had upwards of 20 beers on tap, the usual suspects, and about a half a dozen brewery only offerings.

Service was fine, but nothing overly special. You are basically greeted, and served when you walk in. No complaints though.

Overall, a definite destination in Fort Collins. No beer trip here would be complete without a stop.

Great place. Nothing overwhelmingly positive or negative to say. I'd go back though~

Went in for the tour, only to find that all the stops get taken almost immediately on Saturdays, so we ended up just getting a few beers from the taproom. Very, very crowded and lively. If you like classic American style ales, Odell is the best brewery for that in Colorado.

Love Odell! Place is great to visit, specially during the summer when you can enjoy a beer out on the patio in the beautiful CO sunshine!
