  • It’s a bit kitschy with the pre-tour photo in front of a silly back drop, but..... it’s a beer tour. We felt that the tour bus drivers were more friendly than the in-house tour staff. It’s...  more »
  • We had to wait outside for over an hour where we were then bused in to the factory. FYI, you aren’t allowed to bring bags which is unfortunate for those who have walked or ubered. Once inside you get....  more »
  • Always love this tour. $10 for 3.5 beer samples. Self guided but the recorder provide keeps you informed of the entire process. Of course we will go again.  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.
  • A fun way to spend a few hours on a lovely Saturday afternoon. Very informative self guided tour of the history of the Coors plant as well as the mechanics of the brewing process. Reasonably priced at $10 per person and comes with 3 beers at the end of the tour. You also get a complementary Coors beer glass. For a little extra cash you can get the glass printed with what ever you would like. Bring some extra cash as there is an awesome gift shop. Take the time to see beautiful Golden Colorado and tour the brewery!!!
  • To get to the tour you have to stand in line and wait for a bus, there are no reservations. We went at a good time where the wait was only about 15 minutes, but I could see how the wait gets up there. The Coors Brewery Tour was self-paced with a sort of telephone you hold up to your ear. I enjoyed this as we could walk along as quickly or as slowly as we liked. They had a tasting section half way through which was great and at the end you got 3 - 8oz beers in which you could try many different ones! In addition, they gave you a take home cup to keep forever. Overall it was a great experience for a good 2 hours (for us) and I would highly recommend!
  • Had a great experience here. Initially we were hesitant to go bc we have one person in our group that is handicapped and can’t go up and down stairs and we weren’t sure how that would affect our ability to do the tour. They went out of their way to be accommodating for her and show us a modified route to avoid stairs. Great, informative tour- reasonably priced for CO residents ($5) and military (free!) with 3 free samples and a commemorative glass at the end. Definitely recommend if you’re in the area.
