Iíve visited twice: once for the GABF RateBeer gathering - which was run very well, and another time on the bottling day for Oak Aged Yeti. Itís a somewhat small building with no pub, but they have a few things on draft at a small bar - and they are very kind and hospitable.

Visited in November 2012.

There is a larger room with more seating but I sat at the bar since there was room. The service was extremely friendly and they offered me a taste of some homegrown honey (complete with honeycomb) that a customer had brought in. Sadly there wasnít much on tap that they donít bottle and distribute nationally but I donít regret stopping here. I got some Titan DIPA and a taste of some of the seasonal that I wasnít sure that I had tried before. They have a fridge next to the entrance with a lot of bottles in it. The sign said something about all the large bottles being a certain price which I thought was pretty reasonable for barrel aged Old Ruffian but when I brought 4 bottles to the counter they informed me that they were $27 + tax. No thanks. Actually I took one bottle. Definitely a cool stop to do once to pay homage to the brewery and if you like their beers enough to load up on them, otherwise it probably wonít be a regular hang out for most people.

Packed during GABF weekend, not a shocker. Not too much on tap that you wouldnít see outside of the tasting room, much of it in bottles. Service was quick despite the crowds. Dark and crowded, so kind of hard to get a feel for the decor. Shitters could use an upgrade. Some space outfront on the patio and a small bar ledge around the perimeter of the bar area. Good pricing on the beers, too. Would stop in again during a less crowded time of the year.

Small tasting room with lots of bustle. Service was pretentious and horrible. Beers were there own, but nothing interesting. I am a huge fan of thier beers, but this put me off. Prices were very cheap though.

Afternoon visit on Monday 04/06/12. Surprised how busy it was, but the bar soon cleared as people headed off on the 3pm tour! L -shaped building with bar as you enter and a larger seating area round the corner where a help yourself water dispenser is situated. Service was friendly and prompt. They were clearly beer geeks and knew their stuff. 12 taps and a fridge full of bottles to take out, which I took full advantage of! They donít do food but a pizza van visits at the weekends I think. Decent prices for Great Divide goodness you wonít necessarily find elsewhere to easily. Iíll be straight back here on my next visit to Denver.

Great place to stop and get a one-on-one behind the scenes tour of a great brewery. FREE samples of any of their brews, some are draught but they will open a bottle for you. I told James I was visiting from Alabama and really wanted to try the Hibernation but they were out. Much to my surprise he met me out front with a 6-er that he had found stuck in the back of the cooler!

Great little tasting room at a great little brewery. The best part about this place is their 3 for 3$ 4 oz tastings. Love it!

AWESOME brews and a super friendly and knowledgeable brewer. My wife and I just popped in (April 04) and Bernie gave us a personal beer school. These guys rock.

Great Divide is located on the corner of Arapahoe and 22nd Street. Street and pay lot parking is available in the surrounding area.

The brick building features a large bottle-shaped logo sign on the exterior. Inside it opens to a small bar/tasting room immediately past the entrance. The bar is divided by a wall/window, and behind that is the brewery. There is small area devoted to take home bottles and merch too. Behind the bar there is a board listing the available beers.

As for the beers there are around 15 on tap, including standards like Hoss, Colette, Titan IPA and Lasso plus seasonals like What The Helles Up. a 3-beer sampler is available for $3 with proceeds going to charity.

Service at the bar in the late afternoon was good. The bartenders were having a good time and were attentive. The brewery also offers tours a couple times a day.

I did not have any food on this visit.

All in all Great Divide is a worthwhile stop in Denver.

Visited Friday morning of GABF 2009, ratebeer event. Nice little tasting room, nice selection, nice tour. The brewery itself is coobbled together and has a lot of charm. Place was packed, but I still had some good service. Overall a must stop in Denver.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.
