Great Divide Brewing Company

The Great Divide Titan IPA is one of my favorite Great Divide beers – heck, one of my favorite beers, period. Such a delicious flavor… I’m heading to the fridge right now to grab a cold one to keep me motivated to work on this site.


During the late 80s, Brian Dunn spent 5 years overseas building farms in developing countries.  Having grown up in a family that appreciated good food and drink, Dunn expanded his knowledge and passion for beer during his travels.  Dunn eventually returned to Colorado, started homebrewing and went to graduate school.  Upon graduation in 1993, when Denver’s craft beer scene barely existed, he set out to found what would eventually become one of America’s most decorated and celebrated craft breweries.

Beginning with a marketing study and a business plan, Dunn saw an opportunity in Denver’s Ballpark Neighborhood to brew uniquely balanced, flavorful beers.  With financial help from family, friends and a loan from the City of Denver, his dream of brewing commercially became reality in 1994.

The brewery started small and in the beginning Dunn was the only full-time employee…brewing, bottling and selling to accounts all in the same day.  As the brewery grew, the beer spoke for itself.  Dunn’s beers were balanced, flavorful and representative of a lifestyle that is uniquely Colorado.  While Great Divide’s ethos may be globally-inspired, our beers are distinctly Denver.

Since 1994 we’ve brewed all sorts of exciting beer styles, added lots of brewing capacity and we’ve assembled a great staff.  In 2001, we bought our building – which used to be an old dairy processing plant – and set out for over a decade of exponential growth.

Thanks to our 45 hardworking, creative and passionate employees, Great Divide has grown into what it is today: winner of 17 Great American Beer Festival medals, recipient of 5 World Beer Cup awards, 12th in Ratebeer.com’s 2013 “Best Brewers in the World,” Ratebeer.com’s 2013 Top Brewer in Colorado, and 7th in Beer Advocate’s 2010 “All-Time Top Brewers.”

Join us for a beer at 22nd and Arapahoe in downtown Denver. We do it because we love it – come see how.

Our Tap Room features 16 taps of seasonal and year-round beers, as well as great views into our brewhouse – come visit and enjoy award-winning, handcrafted beer straight from the source. While we don’t serve food, we often host some of Denver’s best food trucks.

The Tap Room is open:
Sunday – Tuesday from 2:00 pm to 8:00pm
Wednesday – Saturday 2:00pm – 10:00pm

Due to the limited size of our tap room and brewery, we unfortunately do not host private events, parties, happy hours, or hold tables for groups. All seats are open to the general public for beer enjoyment at all times.  Cheers!
