Mon. Aug. 6, 3-6 pm: Let’s Talk Recycling! A Community Outreach Meeting & Zero Waste Event at Great Divide Brewing Co. Event Space (3403 Brighton Blvd.)

Come one, come all! We’re hosting a community outreach meeting for our new recycling program here at Great Divide! After purchasing two baling machines through grant funding from the State of Colorado, we began piloting a community recycling program with local businesses. Our program helps to fill a conspicuous gap in current recycling practices by targeting under-served waste streams.

What are these waste streams? Shrink wrap, polypropylene grain bags, and cardboard

Shrink wrap and polypropylene grain bags complicate the sorting process at the recycling facility, so they aren’t accepted in single stream bins. By isolating these materials and baling them in considerable amounts, we can bypass the sorting process and keep literal TONS of shrink wrap and grain bags out of the landfill. Wahoo! We also collect and bale cardboard in this program. Cardboard is bulky and takes up valuable space in your single stream recycling bin, increasing your costs for pickups.

Participation in our recycling program is free, and we will provide you with individualized data for tracking and marketing purposes.

Come on by Monday, August 6th from 3 – 6 pm to learn about the program, drink delicious beer, and hangout with other folks from the RiNo neighborhood and beyond. Email if you want to bring a +1. The program is intended for businesses in the Denver area (within a 15 mi radius of our Brighton Blvd facility), but we welcome any interested parties to come check out the event.


This will be a zero waste event! What’s zero waste? It means we will strive to minimize our waste (including food, beer, containers, and more).
Why zero waste? At Great Divide Brewing Co., we love this planet like we love delicious beer. A LOT! It is home to our weekends in the mountains, our concerts downtown, and everything in between. With your help, we can show gratitude to mother nature by sorting our waste into the proper bins and keeping valuable materials out of the landfill. Please be mindful of signage at the various waste stations around our event space.
What better way to kick off the recycling program than with a zero waste event! May the good beer flow and the good times roll!
Event Schedule:

3 – 4 pm: Arrive, serve beer and snacks.

4 – 5 pm: Presentation about the recycling program, walkaround tour of the recycling process (where you drop off materials, our baling machines, where we store bales, etc.

5 – 6 pm: Hang out, ask follow up questions, more beer and snacks.


Thur. Aug. 9, 6-10 pm: Save the Ales Beer Festival at Mile High Station

Save the Ales, one of Denver’s most affordable and eco-friendly beer festivals, is back.

Whether it’s in our snowpack, our rivers, or flowing out of our faucets, the water Coloradans rely on every day needs to be conserved and protected. It’s vital to our health, our economy, and many of the recreational activities Colorado is famous for. Remember: no water means no beer!

Raise a glass while helping us raise funds to protect, conserve, and ensure a future with clean water for all Coloradans and the breweries we love.

Thur., Aug. 16, 11 am-10 pm: Red Evelyn Release at Black Shirt Brewing Co

Madonna, Bill Evans, Charles Bukowski, Steve Carell…all were born on August 16, but for the Black Shirt family, this auspicious date bring two things to mind: Evelyn Miller’s birthday and Red Evelyn Release Day.

Every summer, we brew our beloved Imperial Red Rye IPA, Red Evelyn, in honor of Grandma Evie, who ran a general store for more than half a century in the small mountain town of Westcliffe, Colorado. Made with copious amounts of rye and wildflower honey, and dry-hopped with Citra and Simcoe at five points in the brewing process, Red Evelyn is a bold, complex and bodacious beer, much like Grandma Evie herself. Coming in at just under 10% ABV, it’s a beer that demands respect and leaves a lasting impression. No wonder it’s one of our most popular offerings!

This year we’re packaging Red Evelyn in 16oz four packs, available only in the taproom. Limit one case per person.

SBS MEMBERS: There will be a special preview of Red Evelyn on Wednesday, August 15, beginning at 11 am. Wear your BSB gear and get some of this rare beer before the crowds descend!

This beer Won the Silver Medal at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival so we couldn’t wait for this years batch to be brewed and released!

What to expect:
Zombie Day is always a party! Live music, photo booth, & delicious beer poured by un-dead bartenders.

22oz Hop Zombie Bombers will be available to purchase individually or by the case*. Supplies are limited, though- this beer is only available one day a year. There will be a very limited amount of special glassware and custom t-shirt to purchase the day of the event.

Each year there are a handful of devoted souls who arrive in the wee hours of the morning to guarantee themselves all the goodies. Baja Berto’s Beachside Burritos will be around early to serve breakfast burritos and will stick around for lunch & dinner.

First TEN people in line will go home with a free limited edition zombie glass! We’ll also be serving up a complementary beermosa or bloody beer to any soul that arrives before we open.

Tunes provided by : Ted Loughry / Guitarist Singer
