Surprised there was but a single review of this major brewery. A self-guided tour, my first time touring a mega-brewery last September (2012). Incredible operation, very enjoyable.
Discovered that the "Rocky Mountain Spring Water" is actually shipped (at great expense) from the Charles River. Who woulda thunkit. Generous with the samples, I had a coupla fine beers here: Colorado Native featured all-local ingredients, and Batch 19 which was a pre-prohibition recipe. I've had this locally recently, and it is a fine lager. Proves that, when they want to Coors can produce flavorful beer.
And afterwards, head up the road to the funky Golden City Brewery. Billed as the 2nd largest brewery in Golden!

First one to review Coors? Ok. Looked it up b/c we did a tour for friends last weekend. Sad to say that the automated tour is crap. So much for service. Although the people at the bar at the end were nice.
The only way to get to this bar part, as far as I know, is through the tour. And it's an impressive place. I mean, the whole facility stretches, like, 5 miles. And I do love the smell of brew day.
But, really, this is a corporate machine. Personality has been trampled to death. Amazing piece of manufacturing, and that's basically what they do: manufacture. They don't really brew.
The small AC Golden section is interesting, but we weren't told anything about it.
Worth a tour just to check it out
