Odell Brewing Company was founded in 1989 by Doug, Wynne and Corkie Odell in a converted 1915 grain elevator located on the outskirts of downtown Fort Collins.

Starting in his kitchen in Seattle, Doug had spent ten years refining recipes and playing with brewing processes until he settled on the brewery's first two recipes, although not yet the names – 90 Shilling and Easy Street Wheat. 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.

In 1994 the brewery constructed a 8,000-square-foot (740 m2) building and brewed 8,300 barrels of beer. In 1996, Odell's amended its draft-only commitment and added a bottling line to start packaging six packs for the drink-at-home fans. Numerous small expansions ensued. In 2009, the brewery again expanded, doubling its plant size to 45,000 square feet (4,200 m2) and increasing its beer sold to 45,000 barrels. [1]

In 2010, the company employs 62 co-workers and distributes in 9 states and Great Britain.
