its cool these guys came down to denver, it seems long overdue. they are in a cool part of town, their space is new and clean and humble, and a very different vibe from the bustling enormity of their main space up north. small and new brewery in the back, rooftop area, and a really humble bar room area, seating for maybe 20 or 30 people downstairs, real mellow, a relaxed side patio area, and a split beer list that has a little better than half the selections coming from there, with no plans to package them or send them around, so you have to roll in to try. the other half are odell classics and some new ones from the original fort collins location, i think a smart way to do it, it creates a new beer incentive to visit this spot, and the beers were great, especially a cashmere ipa, but they had a peach milkshake that was nice too, as well as a couple of fruited sours, seems like they are doing it all, and are focused on some experimentation. service was killer, the girls were, friendly, knew their stuff, and insisted on pouring a lot of samples for me to try. i really did like all the beer, and think odell fits in nicely down there. a fun and relaxed brewery space that feels ahead of the curve right away. a good place to stop in and check out, it has the same sort of chill class that we are all used to from odell in their brewery and their beers. welcome to town!

Nice little spot in the city with an ok selection of beers. Looks to be a spot for the locals to get a bite and have a beer more so than a brewery.

Odell putting their footprint in Denver with a new location offering a pilot brewhouse, where they brew a bunch of small batch experimental offerings. By experimental, not necessarily exotic and zany, but it seems more a way to test out different ideas and recipes and fine tune things? I thought that would have lead to a nicer variety of beer styles but when I was there it was all IPA's and a couple kettle sours. They do always have their flagships on tap as well though. It's Odell, so obviously you have access to some great beer. Quality is great. I didn't drink any pilot brews there so can't comment on the quality of test batches they are producing, but happy to give them the benefit of the doubt based on it being Odell and have taste tested too many to count pilot offerings up in Fort Collins. I stuck with their flagship Lager, which was my first time with it and really enjoyed. Service was fine, happy to have some traditional bar service, and not a production type line service that is in place at Fort Collins. Aesthetics were pleasing; comfy and woody. If the music was more my speed, vibe would certainly have been closer to 4.5, if not higher. Overall, I enjoyed my visit. If coming to Colorado and you want to make the most of the Odell experience, I would personally prefer hitting the Fort Collins location up over this one. But if I was in Denver, this would certainly be a constant in my rotation.
