Went here right after Breckebridge and blew it away! Great hipster vibe with funky music and personable an knowledgeable workers. The interior wasn't great, but the beer made up for it. Bourbon Barrell Yeti!!!!! Could have used more workers.

Such a great example of Denver beer. Great location, blocks away from Coors field and a really great tap room that always has a comunal, public house feel (not a bar). Bright with lots of windows and huge tap selection. These guys have a ton of style options as well as a ton of Yeti variations - there were 4 when I was in last! They offer a short brewery tour that is okay, but that is compared to some of the other big CO breweries that offer huge extensive tours. Great Denver brewery.

A review for their new taproom in the Barrel Room.

Very nice building and taproom, albeit on the small side. If this was a nano brewery that would be appropriate, that its for one of the big boys in the state it seems out of whack a little. I guess they do also have the spot on 19th and Arapahoe, but I read they want this place to be a destination spot and I just don't see how the current set up would allow that, at least once the weather gets crappy and the outdoor seating is no longer an option. All in all, for my experience, I enjoyed the spot. I have never been a huge Great Divide fan and this visit didn't alter my opinion of them. I enjoyed one of the beers I tried, didn't care for the other one. They brew quality beer, I just find that their stuff doesn't always click with me. Service was excellent. Selection was not bad but was a little disappointing all things considered. A brewery of Great Divide's size, I was hoping for a few unique, pilot options. Of the 16 taps, it looked to me like only 2 of the tap lines were of beers that aren't part of their packaged line, a dunkel and a smoked Yeti. Overall, nice place but it fell below my expectations. I expected this to be the Denver equivalent to Odell in Fort Collins and Avery in Boulder, the big local brewery showcasing all they have to offer. Instead it was basic and minimalist. Unless you are a Great Divide fan already, not sure there is much of a draw to this place, personally.
