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.

Stopped here early on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. Having been a fan of GD beers for quite awhile now, I was pretty excited to check the place out.
At first glance the ambience was pretty unremarkable, but there was plenty of energy with a packed room of 20 to 30 somethings. In fact, it was body-to-body full. There is also an outdoor section, but at about the width of a sidewalk, doesn't alleviate much of the indoor crowding. The bartenders were great - responsive and competent despite the crowds. In fact, I would say some of the best I can remember in my many brewery/brewpub visits.
Otherwise, the beer selection was good - I didn't see anything in the way of one-off taproom only type beers, but 6-8 Great Divide beers on tap is a very good thing no matter which they happen to be. As a whole, it was a good beer drinking experience, but would have been much improved had there been adequate room to stand, let alone sit. Given the downtown location, I'd expect they would look to gain more space, but then again, my experience was limited to a single visit.
