Guanella Pass


elevation: 8530 ft

The First Brewery in Georgetown, Colorado Since Prohibition.
Two locations to serve you in Georgetown & Empire, CO
At the foot of the Guanella Pass Scenic Byway in Historic Georgetown, CO sits the original Brewery, and at the foot of Berthoud Pass in downtown Empire sits our second tap room and kitchen. A true mountain brewery. We believe that where you drink beer is as important as what beer you drink. So leave the grind behind, sit for a bit, and share a story or two. Because here, all you need is what you have and a good beer.

The brewery just celebrated its 5th Anniversary on Memorial Day Weekend! Stop by the taproom and give our bartenders a high five! Cheers, and thank you for supporting Guanella Pass Brewery for all of these years.
