Odell is a philanthropic leader among Colorado companies.

Odell Brewing was honored at the 17th Annual National Philanthropy Day luncheon on November 12, 2004. "They exemplify giving of self and set the pace for other local companies," says Mary Carraher, executive director of Project Self-Sufficiency. Carraher noted that Odell Brewing contributes to charitable organizations dedicated to serving environmental, educational, and humanitarian causes. Above, at the event (L. to R.) Craig Halbower of the Education and Life Training Center, with Wynne, Doug and Corkie Odell, and Amy Smith, the head of the Odell Brewing Co. charitable committee. Donating $1.00 per barrel of beer brewed, Smith reports that Odell gives over $26,000 to community nonprofit groups selected by the employee committee through grants, beer and merchandise donations, as well as the charity of the month program. The charity of the month program designates a portion of the tasting room sales, giving an average of $1,000 a month, to the chosen nonprofit. The November beneficiaries are Friends of the Poudre and the Big Thompson Watershed Forum. The December recipient will be the Family Center of Fort Collins.
