I've made two stops at Odell - both during GABF week in 2007 and 2011. My review is based on of the most recent 20011 visit.

Located in what is becoming brewer's row in Ft. Collins with New Belgium, Ft. Collins Brewing, and Funkwerks, one could hit all by walking and definitely by bicycle.

As of this writing, I've been to ~250 breweries and Odell is in my top 10. They are the second oldest microbrewery in Colorado (older than New Belgium according to an Odell rep).

From top to bottom, they have the highest quality and diversity of any of the local and even regional breweries. The tap room is incredibly efficient where you order a sampler and the counter and they have people filling orders around the corner.

My buddy and I shared the more advanced sampler and the oatmeal cranberry porter was one of the best beers we had all week including a hundred or so at GABF.

They've expanded considerably from '07 to '11 and still do an exceptional job. COME TO OHIO!!!!

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.
