Trip Report Coors Brewery Tour

Jump to last reply

Less than an hour drive from Denver International Airport is the former capital of Colorado and the home of a “Rocky Mountain Legend”. I arrive in Golden, Colorado after a long time on a dusty trail with a thirst and one purpose.

Although Golden is know as the town where “The West Lives”, I am here for some of its “Pure Rocky Mountain Spring Water”.

Just a few blocks of the main street, I wait with others on a bus that will take us to the Coors Brewery. A short drive through town with some of its highlights pointed out, we arrive at the Coors Brewery Tour entrance. Here photos are taken and age verification is completed. A quick process where those over twenty one are given an identification bracelet along with an audio device that can be used for a self guided tour of the brewery.

The tour begins with exhibits of Coors history including its part of everyday American life and how it was distributed primarily in the West.

“You know truckin' Coors beer east of Texas is bootleggin”. “This here's Georgia, son”.

If the above quotes does not refresh your memory then remind me to slap your momma when I get home.

From the history of Coors it is onto how beer is made then a small sample of original Coors Banquet is offered. It is interesting all the various beers that are made by Coors including one of my favorites Blue Moon. Here is the largest brewery in the world and the average beer takes about 55-60 days to go from here to your lips.

Fortunately, I don't have to wait 55 days as I am only steps away from a lounge area where I can get three full servings of the various Coors products. First its Batch 19, a prohibition era brew which I enjoy with a few others on the tour.

Interestingly one member of our group is a musician from Nashville that gives us some cool insights into playing with some of Country and Western most popular entertainers.

Not in a rush to leave next its Colorado Native then my favorite Blue Moon. By far, this was the best brewery tour I have ever been on and definitely worth the drive if you have time to spare while visiting the Denver area.
