As someone who frequents the Great Divide far too often :) hereís the rundown. Bartenders are fast and friendly. Bar area is usually crowded but theyíve upped their hours (till midnight a few nights now) and occasionally open the barrel aging room for drinking on the weekends. Patio is decently sized and always open. Always a great selection of high powered beers on tap. Careful with the Yeti itís one of my favs but the next morning will be rough if you over due it (lots of strong beer though not just the Yeti) As for Ambiance the brewery sits on a "developing" corner. So expect non aggressive homeless people and sketchy characters walking by the out door patio. The patio itself has about 10 tables and is tons of fun in the summer. People from small towns might be afeared of the somewhat ghetto surrounding streets (although itís only a few blocks from some really nice areas) Summer taping parties usually involve the side loading area with bands food etc. and are a blast. As for food; Iím not sure how someone said the food is OK as there really is no food from the Great Divide. Food carts from Basic Kneeds pizza (yum) to Gastro Cart (high end street food) frequent the Great Divide especially in nicer weather. So the food is based on who decides to stop by. Itís definitely a cool solution to the no restaurant thing (and seriously these guys make awesome beer who cares about a restaurant). Value wise you can get cheap 5 dollar yetis on happy hour and 3 dollar "normal beers" (samurai and raspberry for example). Remember lots of these beers are upwards of 7 or 8 percent so you pay for that obviously. It really is a local city joint and a fantastic place for beer fans. It can be a bit crowded but Iíve never had a bad time (until the hangover in the morning). The tour is very short and although interesting not something you "HAVE" to do.

This place is the best. $5 Yetiís... Are you kidding?!?! They have all of my favorites on tap and are quick to serve and very knowledgeable. The place is small and has a cool secret handshake feel to it. They donít have food, but really.. It is all about the beer and sometimes food rolls by on wheels. Best beer in CO.. Maybe in the US

I read here that this place is often crowded, but I guess my wife and I got busy. We went by in the early evening on my birthday, and we were the only ones there. The bartender was super-knowledgable not only about the beers themselves, but the business itself. He was very enthusiastic to give a thorough treatment on all the beers on tap. He talked me into some styles I wasnít comfortable with at the time (the Claymore in particular), which I appreciate even more now. Great place to visit and have a delicious craft beer.

Granted its not a bar but I would rather drink here than almost any place. Clean simple tasting room and experience that is all respect to the beer and a quality craft business. Behind the bar are racks of wood barrels. For a very reasonable amount of money super friendly and knowledgable staff give 4 generous pours of Great Divides wonderful offerings.

Visited on a Thursday morning around 10 AM. Located just blocks from Coors Field, this place it located in an older building that you wouldnít know was a brewery unless you knew it beforehand. There was a lot of construction on the inside, however the staff apologized for the mess and gave us some samples on the way. Our tour guide Riley (the head bottler) really knew his stuff, and was a cool guy all the way, offering us refills on our samples several times during the tour. They gave us several samples, and even the brewer came down and chatted with us for awhile. They could not have been cooler guys. They also had a lot of really sweet merchandise for sale, along with free stickers, coasters, and bottle openers. They donít give regular tours, so if you stop by between the hours of 8AM-5PM, stop by if you want to have some excellent, flavorful beers.
