Small Batch Festival at Odell Brewing Company, Fort Collins, Colorado
Odell Brewing Company is a vital part of Northern Colorado. They are not just a brewery, they are an innovative tour de force of brewing, and they put pride and passion into every glass of beer that touches your lips and soothes your soul. Inspiration moves freely around their location in Fort Collins as they are always conceiving new ideas and implementing new strategies to simply make great beer. This concept of creativity inspired the Small Batch five barrel pilot system, aka “The Brewers Playground.” Basically, the Small Batch concept is a way to make small batches of beer for research and development. This is an activity that companies undertake to bring new products to market. Odell has three different R&D systems and were among the early pioneers in the small batch concept.
