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.

Great Divide has some of the cheaper beers of the various breweries that pepper downtown, particularly when you can sample three beers for $3 and receive a generous little pour.

I haven't had the good fortune of visiting the brewery at any time when Yeti variations have been available, but I've found the Peach Grand Cru, St. Bridget's Porter and other gems during my visits. There are always enough good beers on tap, including some of their regulars, to make a visit here worthwhile.

The service can be abrupt, but I've never encountered anyone rude. Plus, most servers, even if unfriendly, will give you as many samples as you request. That's appreciated.

I have seen food trucks outside on every visit as well, so you can readily get some food to pair with the beer.
