let's tap into their story!

Great Divide Brewing Company was founded in 1994 by Brian Dunn, who had previously worked in the finance industry, developing farms in third-world countries. During that time, he had intermittently lived overseas and started to develop an interest in beers. He started homebrewing and upon finishing his graduate school, Dunn realised that he was more interested in opening a brewery than in pursuing his area of study - Environmental Policy and Management.
As a result, Dunn decided to open a brewery in Denver - an area that had a couple of brewpubs but no microbreweries at the time. After doing a marketing study and writing a solid business plan, Great Divide was launched in May of 1994.

The brewery's name, "Great Divide," was inspired by the Continental Divide, which runs through Colorado and separates the watersheds of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The name also represents the brewery's desire to produce high-quality, Great beers that are as majestic as the mountainous, hydrological divide.
Great Divide started out as a small brewery, with Dunn as the only full-time employee back then. Dunn had to brew, bottle, and sell his beers everyday, mostly all by himself. Back then, Great Divide only produced a few styles of beer. However, as the brewery's reputation grew, so did its production capacity and distribution network. Great Divide now produces a wide variety of beers that are distributed throughout the United States and internationally.

Great Divide’s Great beers

While Great Divide’s ethos may be globally inspired, its beers are distinctively Denver. The brewery never forgets its uniquely Colorado roots and is sure to reflect that spirit in its brews, along with a great balance of complex flavours, of course!

In 2004, what has now become Great Divide’s flagship beer - the Titan IPA - was born. The award-winning crisp and boldly-hopped IPA has notes of pine and citrus complemented by hints of stone fruit and is the perfect drink for washing down heavy meals such as Thai green curry or a good ol’ lamb burger!
Great Divide’s other popular beers include the Yeti Imperial Stout - a big, roasty, malt-flavoured stout with caramel and toffee notes - and the Denver Pale Ale - a classic American Pale Ale with big citrus and pine notes that smooth out with a faint, toasted malt character.

Great Divide is also known for its huge variety of beer styles. Besides the typical lager and IPAs, they also brew unique Farmhouse Ales, traditional Marzen Lagers, and seasonal Pumpkin Spiced Ales!

Great Divide’s Great efforts towards sustainability

In addition to its commitment to brewing great beer, Great Divide is also dedicated to giving back to the community. The company has partnered with a number of charitable organisations and initiatives, including environmental conservation efforts and local community recycling programs.
Great Divide is also one of the leading craft breweries in sustainability, with several green initiatives implemented throughout the brewery, including Certified Green taprooms, energy-saving motion sensor lights, and a brewery-wide recycling program. In lieu of its green efforts, Great Divide was recognised as a Gold Leader in the Environmental Leadership Program, is a Certified Green Business, was the 2018 Small Business Environmental Stewardship Award winner, and the 2017 recipient of the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity Grant.

Great Divide Brewing has established itself as one of the leading craft breweries in the United States, thanks to its commitment to quality, innovation, and community involvement. As the craft beer industry continues to grow and evolve, Great Divide is sure to remain at the forefront of this exciting and dynamic field.
