For a mega-brewery tour, Coors provided basically everything you could reasonably expect. The parking and tour were free, the shuttle from the parking area to the brewery came often (and was also free), the tour guides were friendly, and they let you tour on your own, at your own pace, using a personal audio system that lets you go at your own pace.

But, just because it's everything I would expect doesn't make it great. It's interesting to see how such a large operation works, but in the end they're making Coors products. The tastings at the end had some interesting beers I hadn't tried before - a pre-prohibition lager and a Colorado native beer - and although they were better than having to struggle through Coors light, I probably wouldn't have another.

Overall, an interesting place to stop, but now that it's off my bucket list there's no reason to go back.

I was impressed. To be honest, I was expecting to be bored on the "free" tour of this brewing juggernaut. But it was better than free, and let me tell you why! Free parking at their offsite visitors lot (signs point the way). Hop on their tour bus and ride to brewery. Self-guided audio tour with a good mix of basic info and interested facts. The hand-held audio set was a little annoying, but it allowed you to keep your own pace. Friendly hosts are stationed along the tour route. Best part - free beer at the end, and they don't skimp. Three 10-ounce beers of your choice. What a deal! I tried Batch-19 pre-prohibition lager, Crystal, and Colorado native. The latter two are better than average brews from AC Golden Brewing, which I gather is a contract-brewery company (or subsidiary of Coors?) brewed onsite. And of course the better known line of Coors beers are available. Not usually my fare, but it was nice to try a fresh sample straight from the brewery. Can't beat the price, and the geography of the location is quite memorable. I do recommend this tour.

A nice self guided tour through the biggest single site brewery in the U.S.A. They give you a little handset that is informative and send you on your way. It was cool to see, but I wouldn't say that it was mindblowing. You get a little sample of Coors or Coors lite in the middle of the tour that is supposedly very very fresh. At the end you get 3 larger sample of a variety of beers they have on tap. They had a new beer called Batch 19 which tasted like Coors if Coors were better, and another beer called Colorado Native, that I'd ever seen before. It was actually pretty good and I guess is made with only Colorado ingredients and only sold in Colorado. Cool.

In my opinion, of the three major US breweries Coors had the best public tour. It was a self paced tour, so you didn't have to listen to a guide or get caught in a big group. You receive three beers at the end from any of the Coors offerings, which was nice. Obviously the area is very scenic, so the Coors tour was my favorite of the three big US breweries. Tour was also free and easy walk to the main street of Golden.

for a large brewery tour it wasn't too bad. you get a electronic handset that relays info about the brewery as you walk through on your own pace. i wish they were a little louder. going your own pace is nice. you get a little beer about 1/2 way through but it's in a plastic cup. you get 3 samplers at the end in a nice tasting room. thankfully they had full moon on tap so i could get something with some taste. they coors light, coors, molson, killian's, blue moon, full moon, and i think one more beer to choose from. the price is right and it's a good time.

Well I have been to Mecca or to Golden and we stopped and saw Coors. What a great tour. Don’t get scared with the 30 minute drive through Golden Quote before the tour starts stuff. They do pack you on a bus to get you to the tour start and take you on a quick 10 minute tour through the heart of Golden. It does show some great places to go get lunch afterwards. Once there they have you in a huge room full of Coors history. A tour guide takes you through the process not in brewing order but this person knows their Coors history and what each process is doing. Not a Brew Master but the information is correct. Do not try to stump them with Hops questions and how much Alpha Acid they use or such they will never know that. This was a fun outing and now I can say I have been there and it was nice. They limit you to 24oz of free beer and it was cold and good. Thanks Adolph Coors for bringing beer to the Mountain West.

I highly recommend taking the free Coors tour. The guides are very well informed. Even when I managed to stump my guide, she promised to find out and then caught up with me in the tasting room to follow up. You will learn a lot of history on the tour as well as gain a better understanding for how Coors makes it's products. You'll get three samples at the end of the tour in large but comfortable tasting room. Repeat tourists can take the "shortcut" directly to the tasting room. Great for après ski! Also a great giftshop on the way out.
