From our camping spot at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, it was a short drive to the Coors Brewery in Golden, CO. It's the largest single brewery facility in the world.
This kettle was used for brewing in the original Coors brewhouse during the late 1800s and early 1900s. During Prohibition it was used to produce malted milk, and Coors was one of only a handful of breweries that survived Prohibition intact.
Inside there were lots of cute exhibits -
And the gift shop had some interesting items, but I didn't bite.
No, we're not all on the phone. This is the self-guided audio tour.
The modern day brew kettles brew nothing but beer.
Fillers can process 1100-1800 cans per minute!
At the end of the tour, they give you samples of 3 different bears. Even my sister Barbara had some! You could have knocked me over with a feather!
Outside there were lots of Canada Geese swimming in the pond. Gee, I hope they don't use that water to make the beer...
