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.

Great place to visit and relax with some amazing beers. Would recommend visiting in the summer when the outdoor space is lively, great music and lawn games to go along with your preferred beverage. Only "complaint" is that it can be a bit crowded at times, but other than some longer waits for a refill, it's not a big deal.

A bit of a laid back vibe, but one that seems a little too "clean." Many bikes and quite a few families were hanging out on a not too busy day.

Even if I didn't like all the beer here, everything was made very well. They had a fair number of styles represented, slightly heavy on the major pale ale categories.

The service was friendly, for sure, but I dislike the delivery mechanism the use (single point of sale, delivered over at the taps). They are not the only to use this, but I don't feel it fits for a larger place. Also, forcing every person to go get their own beer was just plain odd.

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.
