Coors Brewery reviews
It was my first time in Colorado but this brewery is something I would come back and visit again. You learn a lot about the history of the beer, the Coors family and Golden, Colorado. There’s a fun... more »
At the beginning of the tour, people were subdued and touring like a herd. At the end of the tour, everyone was sampling Coors products and getting loose. By the end of our stay, we were one big... more »
If you don’t mind the long wait then this tour is totally worth it. It is self guided with those little phones you put up to your ear and a narrator walks you through the brew process and in great detail. If you are a fan of beer and how it’s made then this is something you’ll enjoy. Even my wife found it very interesting. Also at the end they give you 3 8oz samples of what’s on tap and a commemorative glass (which is actually good quality and worth keeping). If you’re a brew nerd or just enjoy drinking then check this out!
We arrived for the tour at 1:45 pm on a Sunday and parked in their free lot to ride the shuttle to the brewery. The line for the shuttle is outside and the day we went was windy and cold, so our 1 hour and 15 minute wait was rather unpleasant. Only three shuttles were running and about 15 people fit on each bus. The bus takes you on a five minute tour of Golden even though the brewery is next door to where you park. While on the bus I did see some people just walking the path in and it didn’t seem like they had any issues getting in, even though the shuttle provides you with a ticket that they say you must show once arriving in the brewery. The woman ringing us up didn’t seem to care about it. Once arriving at the brewery we waited in another line before we were able to start the tour. The tour itself is informative and very interesting. I think it’s a good value considering you get 3 8 oz pours at the end. Worth checking out, but I would try arriving early to avoid long lines.
