Stopped by Great Divide Brewing a couple times while hitting up Denver downtown area. Both times it has been packed full of people but the bartender still manages to push out beer faster then the average place on an average night. I had a couple of their limited release brews on tap as well as the usual Yeti, and all were fantastic. They do have beer to go in a small cooler in a corner and the price is decent. Seating can be hard to find but most people hang around the bar area so you might be able to find a seat pretty quick. If you make your way to the back of the seating area you'll notice the huge see-through windows that allow you to watch the brewers as they make their sweet nectar. Overall a must go-to brewery if you're in the area with plenty of places to visit nearby.

Cozy tap room with a bit of a retro vibe, but it totally works. Solid beer options, but definitely focused on the flagship Yeti line and some IPAs, which I'm totally ok with. Fun free tour gives a nice look into how they do what they do.

Really enjoyed the Hazy IPA, which was a New England style unfiltered IPA, 6.0, the Pale Ale was non-descript 5.0, but could have been due to my drinking order....the 7.0 Titan IPA was better, but nothing to write home about. My surprise was the 6.2 Strawberry Rhubarb Sour. Generally not a fan of sours, but this was pretty much the best I could hope for, relatively mild, yet tasty. Great outdoor street facing space about a mile from downtown. Enjoy!

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.

Did a tour and hung out after trying a bunch of their beers. Great selection and cheap prices. Bar area is small but has a good vibe.

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.
