Hey, an actual opening instead of just a reopening! Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse held its grand opening on June 1. The restaurant and brewery is the newest venture from Vibe Concepts , parent company of Tstreet Roadhouse, Roadhouse Boulder Depot and a bunch of other cool spots.
“This has been a trying time for everyone in the hospitality industry and while trying to open a restaurant amid COVID-19 has been challenging, we have felt wholeheartedly supported by the Castle Rock community.” said Vibe Concepts cofounder, Dan Shipp.
Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse will not be taking reservations for now. Service will be first-come first-served. They will be practicing recommended procedures for restaurants by Governor Polis, including limiting capacity to 50 percent, placing parties six feet apart and requiring everyone to wear masks.
“Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse is a more than 8,000-square-feet taproom, including an expansive outdoor patio and a massive U-shaped bar inside, that was initially planned to host more than 400 people. We feel more than confident that we will be offering a safe dine-in experience for everyone,” said Shipp.
Led by Executive Chef James Doxon, Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse will offer elevated comfort food for lunch, dinner and brunch every day, including decadent burgers, fresh entrée salads, innovative pizzas, succulent steaks, memorable desserts and beloved pub favorites that the restaurant group is synonymous with.
Experimental, small batch beers that are exclusive to Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse, totaling 16 Great Divide taps, will be in available in coming weeks. They will be offering a full bar, including Great Divide and non-Great Divide beer, wine and cocktail menus.
Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse is located in the Riverwalk Castle Rock North development, an urban live, work, play mixed-use development on Wilcox Street in downtown Castle Rock. Vibe Concepts has hired 60 employees. Aside from Great Divide’s location in Denver International Airport, this is the first licensing location of Great Divide.
Earlier this year, Roadhouse Hospitality Group announced that after 29 years it would rebrand the parent company to Vibe Concepts to more accurately define the varied group of restaurants.
