Went to Great Divide on my birthday for a tour and some tasting. It was very crowded. It was hard to order a beer. There was one guy operating the bar and there 30 people ordering. It's cozy and eclectic. Cool building in downtown Denver. I think they had 5 beers on tap. They had $1 1/2 oz tastings which I thought was kind of steep.The tours seemed very unorganized and rushed. It was a task to get a beer and find a spot to properly review it. Not as big as I thought it would be. It was pretty cool to see a mountain of left-over hops around the dumpster. It would be nice if they had another building for tasting. It was just too hectic and crowded.

Great beer and great, friendly brew pub.
The neighbourhood is totally sketchy, the homeless shelter a few blocks of over is a bit off putting. . . that being said, there's a parking lot directly across the street from the pub. Food trucks are routinely scheduled to be in the area (check the Great Divide website for the schedule) or you can bring your own food/snacks.
Walk in, $3 samplers, $5 full pours of all their greats, and a few new brews. Small gift store for branded stuff.
Staff are friendly and knowledgable - good vibe, small outdoor seating area and you can watch the local flora/fauna of denver.
Great beer, good place - I stop by here whenever I'm in Denver.

Nice little spot in a good location, they had BA Hibernation on which was very good. Cool vibe and can get tasters, and nice merch and to-go options. A good place but I perferred the selection at the RiNo location.

Visited with my wife and kids after dinner at Yazoo (walking distance, not bad BBQ).

Facility was smaller than I expected (or, looked that way), but they had a lot of large fermenters outside, too. Great Divide makes good beer, so quality was no issue. Selection was fairly small, maybe 8-10 taps. Wasn't too busy. Vibe was pretty good, lots of windows into the brewing facility from the tasting room. Servers were tolerant of my children, other bargoers (and myself) got tired of their noisy antics pretty quickly.

Do yourself a favor and skip this location and visit their barrell house. This one is in a very sketchy area and we were very uncomfortable sitting in the patio having a beer b
