Guanella Pass


elevation: 8530 ft

The First Brewery in Georgetown, Colorado Since Prohibition.
At the foot of the Guanella Pass Scenic Byway in Historic Georgetown, CO, sits Guanella Pass Brewery. 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.

We will be pouring at Great American Beer Festival for the 3rd year in a row!

October 3-5, 2019

We will be rolling our kegs down the hill and pouring for our Denver friends starting at noon on Thursday, October 3rd.

The Guanella Pass crew will be in the coveted “meet the brewers” section all 3 days.

Come celebrate this amazing industry and rub elbows with some of the best in the business.
