The Great Divide Brewery has been a fixture of Denver’s Ballpark neighborhood since the mid 90’s. In 2001, the Great Divide Brewery bought their original building which had been repurposed from a dairy processing plant to its current form as one of Denver’s premier breweries. With the growing demand for their beer, Great Divide bought 5 acres of land that had been the site of an autoparts warehouse in the RiNo neighborhood (a mile from their original site) and broke ground on phase one of their $38.2 million brewery expansion in 2014.
The new facility features a 70,000 SF warehouse and a canning line for the beer. Most recently, in July, 2015, Great Divide opened the “Barrel Bar” on the site and started on the second phase of expansion. In its final form, the new brewery will be able to produce up to 250,000 barrels of beer per year compared to the 37,100 barrels produced in 2013.
No PPE (hard hat, safety vest, safety glasses) required for this event.
On behalf of Great Divide, there will be a free beer tasting in the middle of the tour. We invite attendees to stay after the tour to socialize/network and celebrate another great Hart Hat Tour year! A cash bar will be available.
