This was my first stop on Saturday for a mini beer bar tour in Denver. Great Divide Tap Room was about a six block walk from the 16th Street Mall and was pretty easy to locate.

The actual Tap Room itself was smaller than I imagined and things were pretty busy when I got there. They have a small patio area out front, which was pretty nice to sit down in the sun with a breeze and appreciate a Yeti Stout directly from the source. I also noticed they had some good music playing like Led Zeppelin & The Doors, while I was there which added greatly to the overall vibe.

They offered about 8 or so taps when I was there. Options included Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Stout (delicious!), Grand Cru, Colette, Wild Raspberry Ale, Titan Ale, Samurai Ale, Hercules Double IPA and Claymore Scotch Ale.

I had a good time while I was there and all of the beers here were extremely fresh. Gotta love Great Divide, they make some killer beers.

A bit lacking in selection, most of their brews were the common ones found nationwide. The staff was very friendly and also very chatty. The bar was a bit small considering their brand being known nationwide, but the crowd was a manageable size so it didn't feel cramped.

What to begin - this is my go-to, home brewery. For anyone considering a trip to CO, and the all-important question: "Which breweries in Denver warrant my time?" This is a must-stop destination.

Why? Not only is it home to the best beers in Denver, but it's also got the best vibe of any brewery (perhaps in the whole state). No televisions means everyone talks to each other - locals and visitors.

Another bonus, GD is constantly churning out great beers from its pilot system, making it a near guarantee that they have a beer (or more) that you cannot ever get outside the tasting room. Also, tours are FREE (yes, FREE), and are definitely worth your time. The brewery was formerly a milk production facility, so it's set up very uniquely.
