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.

join us on valentine’s day

friday, february 14th!

We will be serving our Saxon Mountain Stout spiked with maraschino cherries and our Ptarmigan Tripel with red raspberries! We put these fun twists on both brews last year and they were loved by so many. We’re bringing them back so you and yours can enjoy them together once again.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
