Great Divide Brewing Company holds its roots in the passion of its founder, Brian Dunn. Brian began homebrewing while he was attending graduate school in the early 90’s after a return from building farms overseas in developing countries. His passion for beer grew and a business plan followed graduation in 1993 for a brewery in the small beer scene of Denver, Colorado. Brian opened the first brewery in 1994 and was brewing, bottling, and selling his beer often in the same day. By brewing great beer, the brewery grew and led to expansion, purchasing an old diary processing plant in 2001 followed by a 5-acre second expansion in 2013. Our brewery has become what it is today thanks to our hardworking, creative and passionate employees. Here at Great Divide, Bold Character is more than just a catchphrase, it’s the philosophy behind what we brew, how we think, and what we believe.
