If you like beer, you’ll love Golden. In addition to being home to the largest single-site brewery in the world – MillerCoors – Golden is home to nine craft beer breweries also offering tours and beer tastings.


Adolph Coors established the brewery in Golden in 1873 on the banks of Clear Creek (originally called Cannonball Creek). The company and the town have grown together for well over a century, and today, the Coors Brewery Tour attracts 300,000 visitors each year. The Coors Brewery Tour includes a quick van tour of Golden, including historic downtown, a self-guided tour of the brewery featuring the hoppers and bottling line, and a trip to the hospitality room, where you can sample MolsonCoors (including AC Golden) products.

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. Plan to spend at least an hour to three hours depending on the wait. Click here for more information about Coors.

Please note: Backpacks or bags of any type (i.e. purses, diaper bags, briefcases, computer bags, etc.) are not permitted in the brewery or on the tour. Strollers are not permitted on the bus or in the brewery. These items should be left at home or in the car as Coors Brewery Tour staff will not check bags. Lockers are NOT provided.

  • Golden City Brewery
    Golden City Brewery was founded in 1993 by two geologists, Charlie & Janine Sturdavant. They filled the old machine shop behind their historic Golden home with used dairy tanks and Charlie began brewing German-style ales. The tasting room was originally located in the sunroom of their house and provided Red Ale and Pale Ale to the local community in 1/2 gallon growlers and kegs. They’ve been serving excellent beer in Golden for more than 25 years now, but that’s not the full extent of the story. By popular demand, they’ve added wines and cider, also made right on the premises, by our affiliated winery. If stopping by for a drink is an attractive idea, then pairing that beer, wine, or cider with an ever-changing selection from some of the finest food trucks in the Rocky Mountain West should make it even better. Check us out today!

After all, craft beers are more thoroughly enjoyed when in good company. Mountain Toad will offer beers by the half pint, pint or pitcher as well as growlers so that their beer can be taken to-go and enjoyed at home. The brewery is at the corner of 9th and Washington in historic downtown Golden and was an old machine shop that has been restored and transformed into a small brewhouse and taproom, with a beer garden in the adjacent yard. The brewery’s name was inspired by the Rocky Mountain Toad. A toad is commonly viewed as an indicator to the health of an ecosystem. Feeding off small insects and living in both water and land, a happy local toad population indicates a flourishing, vibrant and well-balanced environment. Thus, the Mountain Toad is a symbol for good health and vitality within our community. Rugged, adventurous and whimsical, the Mountain Toad is a playful character that embodies the atmosphere of the brewery. Mountain Toad Brewing has a 10 BBL brewhouse and a 1 BBL pilot system. At any given time, they will have up to 8 beers on tap, consisting of several house standards and several rotating seasonal / experimental beers. The four house standards are Apex Amber, White Ranch Wit, Mt. Zion IPA and Ryrish Stout.
