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.

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.
