This is my favorite hometown brewery. Great Divide brews some outstanding beers and this is a great place to drink them. My favorite is the Hercules Double IPA, followed closely by the Yeti Stout. They offer three or four free samples to start and these are substantial. It's about the equivalent of a free beer. Then its $4 for a pint.

It is a simple no-frills tap room, which is part of the appeal for me. Not too much hanging on the walls other than the brewery's medals from GABF. The service here is awesome. It gets busy and the bartenders seem to take it in stride and, more importantly, keep the beers flowing.

My batchelor party started off here on a Friday afternoon and after drinking a large volume of Yeti Stout we decided to take a tour. Apparently, they knew one of my friends and instead of having us wait for a guided tour, they just opened the door and let us wander around the brewery on our own for awhile. Sweet. Its a pretty small place and is hard to believe they can produce the variety they offer.

Great Divide doesn't normally serve food, so plan accordingly. However, on the weekends they often team up with local restaurants and set up food trucks, which can have some really good stuff.

Happy I decided to drop in on a recent trip to Denver. Was surprised at how small the taproom was. A small, 10 person bar and maybe 5-10 tables / booths. Still really comfortable but can imagine this place gets really crowded on a Friday or Saturday. Had a Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti and it was amazing. Would love to go back and spend some more time.

This place has really good brews and many different kinds to choose from. Went on a super busy Saturday and still got beers within reasonable amounts of wait times. Good price on beers as well. And you can beat the 3 oz. samplers for $1 that in which they donate the proceeds of to local nonprofits. My only bad thing to say about this place is that there were no samples giving out on the tour.

16 great beers on tap. Small place that fills up quickly on weekends but a weekday night it was a pleasure to sit at the bar and try their samples. They also bottled beer for sale and brewery related swag. Nice place. I plan to go back soon when I'm in Denver.

Nice, small group tour. No tasting room, but nice bar and selection of beers to go.Tough to find parking but worth a trip. Just down the street from Coors field, so take in a game and a brew tour. A fine example of Colorado brewing. I recommend any wood aged and the Hercules for hop heads. Titan is a respectable six pack. The staff is passionate about what they do.

If you're going to be in Denver this is a must visit. My wide and I were visiting some friends in Denver and they took us to Golden and thought I'd like to take a tour of the Coors facility. I guess they could see that my wife and I weren't too jazzed about it so we drove back to Denver and stopped by Great Divide - best decision ever. My wife got the espresso oak aged Yeti and the Denver pale ale. I tried the Hoss rye lager, the Claymore, and the Hercules DIPA. All the beers were quality and the staff was on top of things and it was very busy. The staff is very efficient. The tour was informative and fun - save for the annoying drunk people who were more interested in talking loudly amongst themselves than paying attention to the tour guide. I'm not faulting the tour guide or Great Divide for them at all - the your guide just spoke loudly enough for those interested to hear her. It's an amazing facility.
