This refers to the factory tour. A walk that was done a few years ago, but worth mentioning today in case anyone wanted to add it to any travel plans.
You can't help but marvel while seeing the bottles flying by like precise centipede segments as they zoom around on their alcoholic rollercoaster around the factory. It is almost like a mash up of Sesame Street and Willie Wonka ( but for adults ) where you see a factory convert raw materials into a recognizable finished form. The tour is rather short, but you get an idea as to the gargantuan scale they operate on. And the smell of mash is amazing, especially at this scale. A well organized, mechanized giant robot for making beer. Capitalism, not Craft, but well run never-the-less.
Though they did give me a quizzical look when I refused a sample at the end ( Hey, I only wanted to witness the industrialization and machinery, not kill my taste buds ). Probably because every other person on the tour wanted to race to the end and get their sample. Me? I wish they let me wander around a bit on my own.
Don't care for the beer, but would do the tour anytime I'm in Colorado. And it was FREE.
