I've been on some great microbrew tours, and this was just not one of them. Went on a Friday afternoon tour, super excited to see what Denver's breweries had to offer. Our guide said he does this every 2-3 months, so we didn't get one of the guys that do this often. He was not friendly, super cocky, NOT funny although he tried making weird jokes, and didn't tell us anything about the city, beer history of denver, anything really. I asked "are we going to see one of the actual breweries?" his answer was, "in short, no. Because we get in the way of production". What the heck. Isn't this a microbrewery tour?? There was a bit of false advertising. It should be called a bar/tasting tour. Some of the places we went had great beers on tap but were NOT microbrews. Our tour guide did describe some of the beer samples but that was it. It was kind of awkward since they put us in random tasting rooms and areas of the bars that no one else sat, and we waited every time for them to get beer pitchers and wait for our guide to get his beer. Shouldn't these things be set up so that you don't have to wait for your tastings and maybe someone from the actual bar/brewery comes out to tell you about the place or the beer? I was just confused the entire time. Super nice people on our tour, but it was a walking tour of ale houses/restaurant-breweries that I could have EASILY done myself. Not worth the $30, sorry :(
