They say good people drink good beer and eat great food. Well, that’s not all. Good people forge new paths to try to do what’s right. We partner with organizations that support our vision, provide local ingredients, practice sustainability and contribute to the community. Feels good doesn’t it?
Founded in 1989, Odell Brewing was started by Doug Odell, his wife Wynne, and his sister Corkie. Today, the culture of family and collaboration still thrives, fostering a brewery full of beer-centric people. It is this passion for beer that inspires Odell Brewing to create quality, hand-crafted, innovative brews. As a regional craft brewery, Odell Brewing is committed to serving the communities in which they distribute by sourcing local raw materials, minimizing their environmental impact, and through their charitable giving program known as Odell Outreach.
Through great flavors and happy craft beer experiences, we hope to help bring more people together in the Fort Collins brewery community and in the larger community of craft beer. Horse & Dragon’s head brewer is Linsey Cornish, who is creating recipes that play with the balance between sweet malts, bitter hops, and several other fun and fanciful ingredients. Reflective of the balance we’re all striving for in life, craft beer strikes different balances between these flavors and is a constant adventure for the palate.
The mission at Black Bottle Brewery is to create world-class and unique handcrafted ales and lagers.

You’ll find nothing ordinary about their beers, or their staff for that matter.
