Odell Brewing Company - Fort Collins, Colorado


  
Doug Odell's passion for crafting great beer started in his kitchen in Seattle. After the demand for his home-brew grew, Doug-along with his wife Wynne, searched for a good location to take Doug's passion commercial. They moved to Fort Collins to be closer to Doug's sister, Corkie, who joined forces with them in opening the brewery in 1989.

After brewing and kegging his beer, Doug would deliver it, pick up empties, and make sales calls out of his old mustard-colored Datsun pickup. Our original brewery was located in an old grain elevator built in 1915, and was the second microbrewery to open in the state of Colorado.

During the first five years, the popularity of our hand-crafted ales grew so much that we needed a larger facility to meet the increasing demand. Thus a whole new brewery, with a 50-barrel brewhouse, was built in 1994.

After a 6 year commitment to an all-draft product, we began bottling beers in 1996. A 10,500 square foot addition was needed for the new Krones bottling line. In 1997, the five barrel pilot system (one tenth the size of our main brewing system) was brought in to give the brewers a place to create and innovate in small batches.

Today, Odell Brewing Co. also offers five different keg sizes and half-gallon draft jugs (available only at the brewery). Come visit us anytime, on Lincoln Avenue just three quarters of a mile east of downtown Fort Collins.
