Odell’s Sneak Release at FORToberfest

Callie Varra

Beer, bikes, and bands are three defining characteristics of Fort Collins. As the 2014 FORToberfest takes over downtown, the end of summer celebration invites festival-goers to welcome fall by kicking back with a beer listening to live music.


Among the vendors and food trucks, local breweries will be providing beer samples for the public to enjoy. The event’s Saturday line up begins at 11 am lasting throughout the evening. Fortoberfest’s admission is free.

As the leaves on the downtown trees begin to turn, breweries begin to introduce seasonal brews. Adam D’ Antonio, an Odell Brewing Company employee, reveals that this brewery will be previewing Mountain Standard, a double black IPA at Fortoberfest before it even hits the market. Be sure to bring your friends and your I.D. to come experience the Fort Collins culture.
