Stopped here while in Colorado for work. Actually, made it a destination. OK, I'll be truthful, I orchestrated the whole "work trip" just to visit Odell. I had recently been introduced to Odell by the recommendation of a co-worker while in Missouri, as sadly, Odell is not available in most states to which I travel.

First Odell I tried was Myrcenary- double IPA. Absolutely AWESOME! I knew at that first sip, I must go to this place they call "Odell". Very cool atmosphere, very nice, inviting interior with ample seating. I brought along my 2 year old daughter (designated driver) and my lady friend, and we had a great time. They had some live music outside and it was just a cool vibe. Very friendly staff.

Food was sparse, though I'll admit I can't remember the whole small menu, we just grabbed some chips and salsa to munch on. Salsa was awesome by the way. Beer was phenomenal, had Myrcenary and the porter. (OK, a few Myrcenary's). I should have done a flight or two since I am relatively new to this company, but next time.

They close kind of early also, like 7 PM on the Saturday we were there. Actually was "prompted" to move along a little after 7. Not a deal breaker, but I would have liked to hang longer.

Worth a stop if you are in Ft. Collins. Worth a drive if you are anywhere near this place. I can't wait to go back.

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.
