In 1994, Colorado's craft beer scene scarcely existed, but Brian Dunn recognized Denver's potential to be a great beer city. Combining his business background with his passion for beer, which was developed through his international travels and his experience as a homebrewer, he decided to start a brewery. He set up shop in an abandoned dairy-processing plant at the edge of downtown Denver and began brewing the beers that would eventually carry Great Divide Brewing Company to its status as one of America's most decorated microbreweries and would help transform Denver into an international destination for beer lovers.
Brian Dunn's goal was to create adventurous beers that reflect the Colorado lifestyle. He wanted to capture Denver's urban energy and Colorado's awe-inspiring mountains. From great session beers like DPA to massively hoppy, big beers like Hercules, Great Divide has become synonymous with progressive, balanced, assertive hand-crafted ales.
The excellence of our beer is the result of our unwavering commitment to both experimentation and quality. A beer like Old Ruffian would never be imagined without the former, nor would it be drinkable without the latter. We are also firmly dedicated to our community, whose support has been essential to our success, and the environment, which we depend upon for ingredients and which we have a duty to protect. In short, we'd like to think of Great Divide as an example of everything that makes Denver, and Colorado, so great.
Great Divide brews some of the globe's most balanced yet assertive and flavorful beers. These beers have landed an impressive amount of acclaim: Great Divide beers have earned 13 Great American Beer Festival medals and 4 World Beer Cup awards. Great Divide was also ranked 14th in Ratebeer.com's 2008 "The Best Brewers in the World" and was ranked 7th in Beer Advocate's 2008 "All-Time Top Breweries on Planet Earth."
