vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4 | selection: 3.75

A-I visited on the Saturday afternoon of Memorial Day Weekend and the place was packed. Like standing room only packed. I'm not typically a crowd guy, but everybody was having fun, so I cannot complain. Loud-ish rock'n'roll added to the high energy of the place. The bar area up front is small and the seating area around back is not much bigger. The tasting area has a fun feel in a college sort-of way.

Q-The beers on tap were, not surprisingly, Great Divide, which means that they are good beers, with a few great beers like Yeti and variants of Yeti.

Ser-Despite the crowd, I got a drink quickly and without fuss. The beer was poured into a oversized fluted glass, which appeared clean. The pour was well-done. I did not hang around long enough (and the place was too busy) to get into any in-depth conversations with the bar tenders, but it appeared that they knew their beers.

Sel-If there is a down-side to my visit, it was the selection. There was not a single beer on tap aside from St. Bridget's Porter that is not widely available in Denver. To be fair, they had a lot of their regular lineup available, but I don't go to breweries to taste what I can buy at the store near my house.

V-Beers were six bucks for a full-size pour, which is a bit on the high side.

O-I liked the slightly rowdy feel -- this a bar, damnit, not a morgue! The lack of selection was a bit of a letdown, but I will have to get back when something special is on tap. For those visiting from outside the Great Divide distribution area, this place is worth a visit if only to sip on some Yeti.

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.
