Odell brewing is the best Brewery in the state, here's why:

1. Always loaded with happy employees/customers
2. Swag is 2nd to none
3. Brew is ALWAYS fresh and plentiful
4. Tour kicks ass
5. Their recent expansion is letting them send the cat out of the bag. a.k.a they're brewing up some delicious experimental stuff
6. They aren't selling out like other breweries just to make a higher profit
7. They're located in the Fort (the best city in CO)
8. They brew enough of "the good stuff" for seemingly everyone to be able to get their hand on some
9. Outrageous parties
10. Distribution is solid and never undersold
11. Why do I need to sell you on Odell???? Their brew speaks for them...

- Have been here many times and bar none favorite brewery in Fort Collins- (Funkwerks second). High quality beer, to which one of the best in the state. Only drawback had bad experience with one of the retail peeps; sent me to the back of line cuz she thought I cut. I certainly didn't and one of her co-worker rectified by giving free beer tokens :). Overall undoubtedly will not be disappointed.

Me and my girlfriend had a few free hours so we decided that we would hop in the car and drive up to Ft Collins to visit O'Dell's. Turned out to be a wonderful decision. The building was redone recently and is beautiful. We went in and there is plenty of seating and it wasn't horribly crowded, probably because it was a Wednesday afternoon. We got a sample of every beer they had on tap, many of which are not bottled so it was a great experience. Even got a free couple ounces of wildfire 5 which sure beat laying down 25 bucks for a full bottle. Staff was very nice and walked out with a couple growlers and glasses and bottles. Have been looking for an excuse to go back since.

I love this place.

The atmosphere is great: inside and outside seating; different sized tables to accommodate different sizes of parties. Music on Wednesdays. The feel is a quintessential micropub, and something many others ought to strive for.

Service is great - everybody here is friendly and patient.

Selection is great - lots on tap, and lots rotating. They actually still test pilots here, getting feedback from the customers: the way it should be. Lots of fun to be a part of.

Quality is remarkable. They produce consistently good beer, obviously taking quality control and recipe-building into deep consideration.

Thanks for being great, Odell Brewing.

Odell Brewing Company, Fort Collins. Tap room is very nice and wide open, merchandise on the side, lots of room to hang out. If it's not too cold out the patio is a great place to enjoy a beer and the Fort Collins weather. Beer quality is superb. Service is also superb. The staff is knowledgeable about all brews: standard line up and all the pilot brews. Firkin Wednesdays are a must. The most recent remodel really looks nice, notably the wooden walkway, and provides additional parking on the West side of the brewery. Aside from Stone it's the nicest brewery I've been to. Highly recommended.

About a month ago, a group of us embarked on a journey up to Fort Collins, with the intent of hitting as many breweries as possible. This was our first stop. We ordered all three available samplers, and thanks to an awesome bartender, also scored 3 glasses of the Woodcut #5. The beers were all solid, with a few standouts (which has been the case on trips before and since). Beautiful space, lots of beers on tap and a great location (although I kind of miss the old warehouse space). One of the better stops in Fort Collins, with some great rarities occasionally on tap.

Stopped by here while on vacation - unlike New Belgium, their tours were not booked out two months.

The brewery is very impressive even from the parking lot - it's a very new, clean, modern looking facility with cool stuff like custom hopvine bike racks and hop vines growing all over the wooden pillars in their entryway.

The tour was probably the best one I've ever been on. By being 25 minutes long, it was short enough to keep my non-beer geek traveling partners interested, and they were able to answer any and every question posed by beer geeks.

The sample room is very well laid out - there are two different tasting flights available and they have snacks and swag available for consumption. Both indoor and outdoor seating.

Odell has a great facility with a healthy mix of modern and traditional brewing methods, an excellent tour, and a very fun but unassuming sample room. I highly recommend stopping here even if it's out of your way.
