I visited during GABF, in which they opened up the brewing and kegging area for us to roam around. That gives them a few more points, and the guy kegging was friendly and talkative even though he was working. The tap room looks like any other micro tap room, in which they sell shirts, draft beers, bottles to go, etc. It was very busy, but I thought the bartenders did a wonderful job handling the crowd. Beers are always good..it is Great Divide after all.
I went here during the Great Divide Opens Their Doors To RateBeer during GABF! Four FREE! Samples and Sour Claymore on draft! Even got a sample of BA Hibernation that I got the first rating on! I hung out with Ratman and since he knows everyone we had exceptional service!
I enjoyed the beer that was available. The atmosphere seemed to be made for return guests. The seating was in a small area and did not accommodate large groups. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly.
Tiny, tiny tap room indoors, but a nice amount of seating outside. The staff of two were extremely friendly and tried to help me pick out a few brews. Conveniently, I had already tasted all but three, so I went with those...all poured into the appropriate style of glassware. The happy hour pricing of $3 per pint is tough to beat for such high-quallity beer. One tap was even running a modified DPA as "Rockies Real Ale" and it was quite tasty! Definitely worth a visit before any Rockies game!
One of the nicer brewery tasting rooms I’ve seen, and the outdoor seating is nice as well - small bar w/a handful of tables inside - the samples are a decent size, and your first four are free (five bucks for every four after that) - small but attentive staff - pretty much all of their beers are available to try either in draft or bottle form, including some limited release stuff - bottles are available to go, and they sell a nice variety of glasswear and clothing - this is an essential stop.

Nice tasting room with some outdoor seating. All the usual GD beers on tap, including the new Belgica and Expresso Oak Ages Yeti. Service was great. Good place to stop off before a game.
Visited during GABF in 2008. The tasting room was crazy busy. All of the Great Divide beers were on tap. I ordered a glass of Hercules and one of the employees offered to take a group on the tour. Can’t think of a much better way to tour a brewery. This is a former dairy factory, I believe, and it’s amazing to me how small the brewery seemed given their distribution. The tour guide was very informative and was willing to answer all of my questions. Certainly worthwhile if you are in Denver.
I liked the tasting room, simple and sober, with local art displayed for sale. The brewery is in the back, however, there was a private event going on. First 4 samples are free, so a great deal (includes the big boys, like Yeti).

The tasting room is very tasteful and efficient in its design. Ample beer literature is available for entertainment while enjoying the available brews. There was an excellent selection of beer available on tap, highlighted by espresso oak aged Yeti. I bought two pints and a bomber to go and was very surprised at the low cost of my purchase. The service was helpful and informative. I wasn’t too excited about going here to start, but I’m glad I did. I was very impressed.
