Great Divide 17th Anniversary Party

A few thousand of the Great Divide Brewing's closest friends came to a street party on Saturday, June 11, 2011 outside the brewery at 22nd and Arapahoe for its 17th birthday. "We like to close the street down so we can have a bigger party, and not just because it's our birthday, but as a way to celebrate the community as a whole and craft beer in general, says Great Divide spokeswoman Hanna Laney.
