this place is historic. they have been making beer on site since pre prohibition. The mountain stream runs right thru the brewery. The tour is great. The gift shop has cool retro shirts. The beer samples are free. You can't go wrong.

We've done the tour a couple times because it is a fun stop on the way from Denver to the mountain towns. The second time we went was July 5th. We pulled into the crowded parking lot and heard that the line just to get ON the bus to go to the brewery was more than an hour long. They said it was the busiest day of the year. We decided to wait until we drove past again a few days later and sure enough, it was a breeze. No waits, no crowds. The only bummer was that the processing lines were shut down for the day so we couldn't see any active bottling. It is a free, fun, interesting tour that rewards you with cold beer samples after. You'll be amazed at how many beers Coors makes.

We were in Colorado, one full day in Denvor,
We discovered that the Coors Brewery was there,

None of us a Beer drinkers, But.... Why not so we went,
its perfect, there is no fee to get in, The tour is nice, one gets to hear the history of Coors & see how its made, & at the end,
Drink & taste all the beer you want on them also they are happy to give you an cold coke if beer is not your thing.

So I say go . . .

& Yes there is a nice gift shop at the end, We didn't seem to buy much :-(

The Brewery is huge, and the self-guided tour is comprehensive, takes about 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour. Plenty to see and read. There is also a shuttle bus to take you from the parking lot to the tour and back. We were almost the last to leave, and there was no sense of rushing us. The tastings were awesome, had some brews I never tried before, and it was Hallowe'en so we were served by various costumed characters! Lots of fun!

My sister and I had been looking forward to our first trip to the Coors Brewery for a very long time. We finally made it and after a long, cold wait for the bus we were on our way! The bus ride through the town was nice and our driver was very knowledgable. Once we arrived and got inside, we were surprised that there was not an actual tour guide but a pre-recorded tour on an audio device. The tour was pretty nice. It seemed like there must have been some renovations going on or something - the tour seemed short. I would have liked to see more in the bottling/packaging department as well. The visual aids were nice and the audio tour was good. The tasting room is very nice, indeed. I've been on tours where you get one beer at the end, but here you get a choice of three! They are very generous pours and really give you the chance to try different things. All in all I really enjoyed this tour - but it would be much better with an actual guide!
