Photos: Great Divide 17th anniversary party, 6/11/11

A few thousand of Great Divide Brewing's closest friends came to a street party on Saturday, June 11, 2011 outside of the brewery at 22nd and Arapahoe for its seventeenth birthday celebration.

"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's Hanna Laney. Photos by Aaron Thackeray. View full Great Divide 17th anniversary slideshow
