  • I visited on a weekend so most machines were not running and no workers were around. They shuttle you from the parking bus to the factory while the driver briefly introduce the small town. It's free entrance, self-paced with a multilingual audio guide that explains how beers are made and some history of the factory. You get up to 3 free beers at the end (bring your ID!), with non-alcoholic options available. Note that you can't bring a bag with you and they don't have lockers. If you arrive by taxi you need to rent a locker at a nearby store.
  • Pretty great for a free macro-brewery tour. Educational and historic. Get there early! We showed up at 9:45AM and it was already lining up. Self-pace, so don't expect a tour guide the whole time. Some might not like this format, but I enjoyed not being rushed from station to station. 3 free pours at the end. Bummed the fresh beer tasting halfway through was not happening, but overall a great time! Very friendly employees and bus drivers.
  • Parking is off-site and then about a five minute shuttle to the brewery. Self guided audio tour is a nice idea, because you can go at your own pace. Complimentary tasting at the end is definitely a plus. We tipped the bartender, who then informed us that it would go to a charity organization. The photo that was taken at the beginning of the tour turned out very funny (in a good way), so we ended up purchasing a copy. There was no charge for the tour or the tasting lounge.
  • Free tour with 3 beer samples included! The catch? The wait is super long. We waited 1.5 hours before hopping on the bus to begin our tour. If the weather is nice, the wait isn’t too bad. Once inside, the self guided tour is convenient and great, especially for larger groups. The free beer at the end is definitely a perk. They have tons of beer on tap and they are all delicious! Make sure to take advantage of the Golden Ticket that you receive after the tour! It gets you up to 20% off meals and goods in downtown Golden.
  • Interesting info if you enjoy audio guided tour with limited human input. If you don't it's easy to move quickly to the free beer at the end. Beware, it can be an hour to hour and a half wait to get into the plant.
