While you may not associate these words with a brewery at first, you’ll come to see that these words truly sum up the Coors Brewery in Golden, Colorado — the largest single brewery facility on the planet! And while I was in Colorado, I explored this enormous facility firsthand on a walking tour that is unique in that it allows you to experience beer-making up close. It may not quite be Willy Wonka’s factory, but you can’t get much closer than this. (high resolution photos included)”
