Daddy Makes Beer! : Our Afternoon At Odell Brewing Co.

Our Afternoon at Odell Brewing Co: Farm Fresh Family
For the past year, Rob has had the great pleasure of working for Odell Brewing Co., the best brewery in the entire world. Their IPA, (called simply, IPA) puts other India Pale Ales to shame. Their Scottish Ale, 90 Shilling, is one of my go-to beers. So flavorful, yet so smooth. And my favorite: Friek, a cherry sour beer with a crisp, refreshing taste that I absolutely crave. They only brew it in limited quantities, so when Rob brings home a bottle, it’s like liquid gold around here.

I’m not the only one that thinks Odell rocks…

The brewery has been so good to Rob, offering him some really awesome perks that we’re going to miss a lot when we move to the farm. I mean, I’m really excited that we’re going to have access to fresh organic veggies, but I also really enjoyed the three 6-packs Rob brought home from the brewery for free every week.

Just some of the delicious beers that Odell offers.

What I’m going to miss the most is hanging out in the tasting room. Over the last year, it’s become the perfect meeting place for us. It’s family friendly with a great patio, there are always delicious food trucks parked outside, and it’s biking distance from our house. We’ve spent so many afternoons sharing beers with friends and chatting about life.

Some of our favorite people to hang out with at the brewery: Justin and Britt.

Last October, Odell premiered their brand new brewhouse and expanded tasting room. The whole expansion and renovation is absolutely gorgeous. Britt, being pregnant and all, hadn’t been to the brewery to see the expansion yet, so Rob showed us around today. (I love having a personal tour guide.)

How gorgeous is this space!?! It’s even prettier in the daytime, with the big windows overlooking the picture-perfect patio.

Today I enjoyed Odell’s coffee Russian Imperial Stout, Mutual Respect. I’m not usually a fan of Russian Imperial Stouts, but the coffee flavor in this one was so delicious.

It started to storm while we were checking out the brewhouse. We got a great view of the pouring rain from the huge windows.

After touring the new brewhouse, Rob took us through the warehouse.

This is where he works: the bottling line! I love that Clare can come see where her Daddy works. We’re going to be taking that to a whole new level on the farm!

Man, I love this brewery. It will be one of the things we’ll miss the most about Fort Collins. It’s such a fantastic part of the community here.

Another thing we’ll really miss is watching these two play:

I am the proud mama of a beautiful, hilarious little girl and the proud partner of a kind, smart man. The three of us have decided to make a major lifestyle change and move from Fort Collins, CO to an organic farm in southwest Colorado. We hope that by being surrounded by nature's beauty and working with our hands, we will be reminded daily that the simplest things in life are the most important. I learn big and small lessons every day, and I want to share what I've learned with other families.
