What Types of Beer Does Oden Brewing Company Offer?
Oden Brewing has a nice variety of beer options across various styles of beer. Like most craft breweries their menu includes a selection of Kolsch’s, brown ales, lagers and various styles of IPA’s. We found enough variety for everyone to enjoy.
Some of the beers we’ve tried:
- Escape into Summer Lager which is infused with fresh ginger, lemon peel, and grains of paradise for an herbaceous, spicy, and lemony kick.
- Smarter Than The Average Bear Honey Brown Ale which is a lower ABV and super drinkable brown ale. They source their honey locally for this one.
- La Curva Sud Italian Pilsner which is brewed at a slightly higher temperature than German Pilsner for a slightly more fruity flavor.
You can see their current beer selection here.
What Does The Inside Have To Offer
The interior of Oden Brewing is intriguing due to the Oden family renovating the old bottling building into a brewery. They did a great job keeping the rustic warehouse feel whiile also modernizing the interior to feel new and clean. There is plenty of seating for a family to pull out a board game, play foosball, or just sit and relax with a beer. Everywhere you look, there is detail to admire; even the restrooms.
Does Oden Brewing Have Outdoor Seating?
Oden Brewing has a large space outside for everyone to enjoy. There is a large porch with plenty of seating to sit under a roof yet enjoy the outdoors. A large number of tables are available behind the three buildings. Oden Brewing owns all three buildings where everyone is able to sit on the porches and watch the entertainment. The buildings look like someone’s home but they are actually used as offices for the family.

While they did not serve their own food Oden Brewing has a consistent schedule of food trucks which are often located behind the building near the outdoor stage.

Final Review of Oden Brewing Company
This was one we were told we need to visit (even by another brewery in Greensboro) and the recommendation did not fall short. With a great use of an old factory and a large outdoor seating area the brewery offers a lot. We have yet to find a bad beer on their menu and their food trucks have offered a wide variety of great lunch style food options. With easy parking and games for the kids this spot hits all the requirements of a family friendly brewery.
For those adults and kids who love trains, the brewery property is right up against an active freight line with trains passing every few minutes.
