Nice little tasting room located very close to downtown Denver. I visited during GABF 2009 when it was super-packed, but I can't hold that against the place because I'm sure that's not how it usually is. The place is pretty small though, so it doesn't take a lot of people to crowd it. At least when I was there, there was a little outdoor area with some chairs and tables set up. I can't say I'm a HUGE fan of Great Divide's beers - they're a bit overrated in my opinion with the exception of the Yetis and a few others - but this is a good place to visit if you're in town for GABF or something else. The tap selection is decent, but not quite as good as I had hoped. I think there was only one Yeti on tap: the standard one. Some bottles available, but not a huge range. Nothing out of season. Brewery tour is all right, pretty similar to other tours. People working there seemed nice, and service is good. I'll probably be back the next time I make it to GABF. Reasonable pricing, samples available.

It amazes me that no matter how packed this place is, you can always get a server's attention in a reasonable amount of time. Tasters are a buck, full pour no matter what you're drinking is $5 and there is some pretty heavy stuff that they give you an impressive pour on. Sure you might be packed in like sardines, but when you can drink an espresso aged oaked yeti, it's hard to complain about that minor detail.

Stopped in here for a quick beer as I walked around town. Tiny little spot, a bit run down, with one fridge inside. There is a bar when you walk in and some tables behind that. Brewing going on in the back. Service was nonexistent as the guy just talked to the couple next to me at the bar the whole time. There wasn’t a single thing on tap that I couldn’t get on the shelf in Florida. Overall this was one of the more disappointing experiences I have had visiting a brewery I truly enjoy. Honestly not really worth a stop unless you want a tshirt or something. Did not eat. What is the point of this place if you’re not going to do something unique?
