Coors Brewery Tours
Adolph Coors established the Coors brewery in Golden in 1873 on the banks of Clear Creek. Today, MillerCoors is the second largest beer company in America, capturing nearly 30 percent of US beer sales and the Coors Brewery Tour attracts 300,000 visitors to Golden each year.
The Coors Brewery Tour explores the world’s largest single-site brewery and includes a quick bus tour of Golden, a self paced walking tour of the brewery, highlighting the malting, brewing and packaging processes, and free beer sampling in the Coors Brewery hospitality room.
After the tour, visitors can view old photos, marvel at historic beer cans, bottles and memorabilia, and shop in the Coors & Co. gift shop.
Tours are free of charge, and photos are permitted along the route. Ample free parking is provided, but do allow for 90 minutes to three-hours for your visit depending on the time of year. The hours for the tour change seasonally, so it’s best to call ahead to make sure they’re open on the day you plan to visit.
