Recently I had my second visit to Great Divide. We stopped in on a Monday afternoon about 2:30. There was 10 people around the bar area... many drinking pints/goblets while some had samplers. Most, as it turned out, were waiting for the 3pm tour (which we had no interest in taking as I've been on many brewery tours including GD).

Service was great. The bartender was busy and she kept up with everybody. She was cool and knew enough about their beer. I couldn't say she was a beer geek but she got the job done. Over the course of the hour we were there I had a Hercules and Espresso Yeti... my fiancée had a Hades (via bottle) and a Claymore (tap). Unlike our last visit (during a GABF weekend) there was nothing overly unique or funky (aka, no brewery-only stuff) which was to be expected but a bummer nevertheless.

The vibe is chill, cool... but still a brewery with a taproom. No TV. No food besides chips. I like GD but it isn't much more than a place to grab a fresh GD beer or two and move on. The place, as mentioned, is awfully small.

Prices are very good... if you factor in the free samples it is quite the bargain.

The lady that gave the 3pm tour, once completed, came back and had a DPA straight from the bottle which I thought was really odd. Not that drinking from the bottle is a crime but is it really the image a brewery wants of its beer?

All in all, I wouldn't consider Great Divide a must stop but if you have the time it is worth it.
