For any lover of beer(especially if you're over 40 and remember drinking good ol' Coors), this brewery has got to be on your list. Such a beautiful location in a quaint little mountain town. So much history with this brewery and the area. Just get over the fact that it's merged with Molson and gone global and enjoy it for what it was. Plus it always helps when you have complimentary samples at the end of the tour.

I grew up in this area and remembered getting 3 small pitchers per person...how things have changed. More responsible now with a couple flutes instead.

As far as the service and atmosphere goes, this facility is one of the cleanest and most welcoming/hospitable breweries I have visited. It is a legend and should be visited if you get the opportunity.

If you have purchased Coors in the past and did not care for it, try it at the brewery and you may change your mind.

Enjoy!

We drove up to Golden from Denver yesterday. It's not hard to find because this place is huge. The lot attendant told us where the visitor lot for the tour was in the most friendly manner. We waited about 15 minutes to actually get on a tour bus that goes to the brewery. On the way, a small tour of Golden with history and places of interest was provided and we liked it very much. Did you know the brewery is over 5 miles long? The tour isn't, though.

The tour is self-paced and recorded audio. Along the way, there are employees at every stop that can answer any questions you might have about that area of the brewery that is discussed in the audio. Test them with a question. These college students know a lot! We could go at our own pace and get more info if we wanted it. Coors brews more types of beers than I knew including Leinenkugles and Colorado Native (which I had at the Breckenridge Beer fest earlier in the week).

At the end of the tour, we could enjoy three complimentary beers in a comfortable area with plenty of tables and seating. I had a Colorado Native, Batch 19, and Blue Moon. My friend had Blue Moon with an orange garnish. You have to go up to the taps to get your beers but plenty of employees come around to get glasses and to keep it clean. Many people from all over the world come here. I think Coors was generous and I did expect them only serve Coors products but not all were available. Leinenkugles Summer Shady is popular in AZ and I would have tried it. That being said, the beers I had were good and quenched my thirst.

I would recommend this tour to anyone, even my beer snob friends. They were very friendly and this is a factory that produces more beer in one day than most breweries can produce in a year. I found it impressive.They were more than gracious.

Surprised there was but a single review of this major brewery. A self-guided tour, my first time touring a mega-brewery last September (2012). Incredible operation, very enjoyable.

Discovered that the "Rocky Mountain Spring Water" is actually shipped (at great expense) from the Charles River. Who woulda thunkit. Generous with the samples, I had a coupla fine beers here: Colorado Native featured all-local ingredients, and Batch 19 which was a pre-prohibition recipe. I've had this locally recently, and it is a fine lager. Proves that, when they want to Coors can produce flavorful beer.

And afterwards, head up the road to the funky Golden City Brewery. Billed as the 2nd largest brewery in Golden!

First one to review Coors? Ok. Looked it up b/c we did a tour for friends last weekend. Sad to say that the automated tour is crap. So much for service. Although the people at the bar at the end were nice.

The only way to get to this bar part, as far as I know, is through the tour. And it's an impressive place. I mean, the whole facility stretches, like, 5 miles. And I do love the smell of brew day.

But, really, this is a corporate machine. Personality has been trampled to death. Amazing piece of manufacturing, and that's basically what they do: manufacture. They don't really brew.
The small AC Golden section is interesting, but we weren't told anything about it.
Worth a tour just to check it out
