Me and my Corn Dog went there on our Colorado trip. Its awesome looking at it from the outside because it is smack dab in the middle of downtown and one lot is the rather small brewpub and the other lot is this mass amount of giant fermenters and grain mills. Inside was pretty hoppin, lots of peeps, not a lot of room though. Kinda crammed. But very friendly employees, all the regular Great Divide beer offerings were there, plus a couple barrel aged versions in bottles that I couldn't afford on my vacation budget, plus they had the 19th Anniversary on tap. I didn't get any food but I saw them serving tacos. They looked kinda ok, but I'm from Texas so....come on. I've had the best of the best tacos. We sat outside and chatted with some locals. Very good times. I could see that as a quick spot to get outta the sun and grab a quick beer.

A bit lacking in selection, most of their brews were the common ones found nationwide. The staff was very friendly and also very chatty. The bar was a bit small considering their brand being known nationwide, but the crowd was a manageable size so it didn't feel cramped.

What to begin - this is my go-to, home brewery. For anyone considering a trip to CO, and the all-important question: "Which breweries in Denver warrant my time?" This is a must-stop destination.

Why? Not only is it home to the best beers in Denver, but it's also got the best vibe of any brewery (perhaps in the whole state). No televisions means everyone talks to each other - locals and visitors.

Another bonus, GD is constantly churning out great beers from its pilot system, making it a near guarantee that they have a beer (or more) that you cannot ever get outside the tasting room. Also, tours are FREE (yes, FREE), and are definitely worth your time. The brewery was formerly a milk production facility, so it's set up very uniquely.
