Nice little tasting room located very close to downtown Denver. I visited during GABF 2009 when it was super-packed, but I can't hold that against the place because I'm sure that's not how it usually is. The place is pretty small though, so it doesn't take a lot of people to crowd it. At least when I was there, there was a little outdoor area with some chairs and tables set up. I can't say I'm a HUGE fan of Great Divide's beers - they're a bit overrated in my opinion with the exception of the Yetis and a few others - but this is a good place to visit if you're in town for GABF or something else. The tap selection is decent, but not quite as good as I had hoped. I think there was only one Yeti on tap: the standard one. Some bottles available, but not a huge range. Nothing out of season. Brewery tour is all right, pretty similar to other tours. People working there seemed nice, and service is good. I'll probably be back the next time I make it to GABF. Reasonable pricing, samples available.

Visited Sep 2017. The Base Camp food truck which was there that day (a Saturday) offered tasty, original fresh food. So crowded couldn't really taste much - also they charge $2 for tastes which always irks me - but all worth it to have Titan on tap. Fun place in the usual funky, fringe neighborhhod where breweries have to be.

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.
