I've had very little experience with Odell beers but I decided to check out the brewery while in the area on business.

I loved the atmosphere of the tap room. It's natural, comfortable, eclectic and relaxed yet impressive and inspiring. And the crowd seems much the same. I could really see stopping in regularly.

The service is outstanding. I asked for some recommendations on the samplers based on my love of hops. The guy gave me an honest assessment and threw in an extra to make it more hop oriented.

Odell's is a really fun place to stop in for a beer. I highly recommend it.

Beautiful brewery. Very comfortable feel inside and plenty of tasty beverage options available to satisfy just about any taste. Staff are all super friendly and seem like they genuinely love working there. The tour gives a great behind the scenes look at how they do what they do. Definitely one of my favorite stops in Colorado.

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.
