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.
