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.

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.

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.
