The tour guide points out some historical sights, such as the old capital building as well as two restaurants where the special Coors Barman pilsner is served. The Barman is a special beer that is not served anywhere else beside these two establishments.
Once inside, we waited in the lobby for about 15 minutes before our tour guide, Peggy Sue, came and collected us for the tour. First she explained the different products made in the brewery as well as internationally. Then she explained how the three ingredients combine to become beer. From there you walk by the copper kettles where beer is stored during the malting process.
Then you get to see the roasting kiln and the employee break room, which, up until about 10 years ago, had beer available for free for employees while they were working. Continuing down the hallway, they have displayed some of the labels from the other products that the factory made during prohibition. Instead of laying off his workers during prohibition, Adolph Coors instead started making nonalcoholic beer and malted milk.
After that, it’s on to watch packaging, which sounds kind of lame, but it’s really cool, because it goes so fast it makes you head swim. Then it’s off to the lounge to enjoy three free beers. This is a free tour that’s fun and interesting, and then they give you beer, or if you prefer, Pepsi products. They also have a slushy machine with three flavors of Zima in it.
Overall, the tour exceeded my expectations. I figured that it would be fine, neither good nor bad, and they would give me beer. I didn’t expect it to be so much fun. Peggy Sue was hilarious and knew everything we asked her, even though she admitted that she doesn’t like beer. She really likes Zima, though.
