I read here that this place is often crowded, but I guess my wife and I got lucky. We went by in the early evening on my birthday, and we were the only ones there. The bartender was super-knowledgable not only about the beers themselves, but the business itself. He was very enthusiastic to give a thorough treatment on all the beers on tap. He talked me into some styles I wasn’t comfortable with at the time (the Claymore in particular), which I appreciate even more now. Great place to visit and have a delicious craft beer.

Went here with a friend to slake a thirst. The taproom is surprisingly tiny, barely enough room for the bar and sitting room, but once you squeeze in, have a round and start talking to people around you it becomes cozy and friendly. All the beers on tap were exceptional; the Hercules DIPA was surprsingly mellow and well balanced on tap, much more so than in th bottle it seems. Had a great time chatting and drinking, they let me vape on the patio, overall a really great experience at Great Divide.

A: Vibrant would be an understatement. My visit was on a Sunday afternoon. Elbow to elbow, but was able to get a spot at the bar.
Q: Good consistent beer, but outside of the Yeti, nothing that truly distinguishes itself.
S: About what you would expect in a packed bar
Sel: While a large selection on tap, nothing unusual that you had to come here for
O: The place is packed so hard to argue with that, but then if you are looking for something really interesting there are other brewers in town that can deliver that as well. If you couldn't get Yeti across the country that would be one thing, but since you can, I'd opt for other spots in town.

Great Divide does some big beers, and they do them well. Their stuff is priced a little higher than most comparable products at the store, but most of them are worth it. Try some of their unfamiliar ones in their sampler pack for a good introduction to what's going on there. And, like many others, they're building a new facility a mile or so away, which will greatly enhance their ability to produce more beer. Everybody wins.
