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.

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
