A-I visited on the Saturday afternoon of Memorial Day Weekend and the place was packed. Like standing room only packed. I'm not typically a crowd guy, but everybody was having fun, so I cannot complain. Loud-ish rock'n'roll added to the high energy of the place. The bar area up front is small and the seating area around back is not much bigger. The tasting area has a fun feel in a college sort-of way.

Q-The beers on tap were, not surprisingly, Great Divide, which means that they are good beers, with a few great beers like Yeti and variants of Yeti.

Ser-Despite the crowd, I got a drink quickly and without fuss. The beer was poured into a oversized fluted glass, which appeared clean. The pour was well-done. I did not hang around long enough (and the place was too busy) to get into any in-depth conversations with the bar tenders, but it appeared that they knew their beers.

Sel-If there is a down-side to my visit, it was the selection. There was not a single beer on tap aside from St. Bridget's Porter that is not widely available in Denver. To be fair, they had a lot of their regular lineup available, but I don't go to breweries to taste what I can buy at the store near my house.

V-Beers were six bucks for a full-size pour, which is a bit on the high side.

O-I liked the slightly rowdy feel -- this a bar, damnit, not a morgue! The lack of selection was a bit of a letdown, but I will have to get back when something special is on tap. For those visiting from outside the Great Divide distribution area, this place is worth a visit if only to sip on some Yeti.

I stopped into the brewery with some friends during a beer tour of Denver. The tasting room had a great crowd and some nice beers on tap. I started with a sampler of their Colorado Fresh Hop, Fresh Hop and Oak Aged Yeti. Then I topped that off with a pint of the Colorado Fresh Hop. The beer and staff were fantastic. Before leaving, I picked up a Yeti t-shirt and tin tacker for my pub room. I love this place!

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.
