Colorado brands Great Divide Brewing Company and Vibe Concepts are once again teaming up to open a second location of Great Divide Brewing & Roadhouse. Vibe Concepts — the parent company of local favorites Tstreet Roadhouse, Roadhouse Boulder Depot, Spanky’s Roadhouse and Reivers Bar and Grill — will open Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse Lone Tree next month on the ground floor of the Charles Schwab conference center, part of their global headquarters at 9878 Schwab Way. The two hospitality companies opened the inaugural Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse in Castle Rock in May 2020 as the first licensing location of Great Divide outside Denver International Airport.
“Despite opening in arguably the most difficult time for a restaurant in history, Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse in Castle Rock has far exceeded our expectations and has been met with wild fan fair,” said Vibe Concepts Co-Founder Dan Shipp. “Alongside the phenomenal partner that is Great Divide, we can’t wait to bring standout beer, elevated comfort food and unparalleled ambiance to the Lone Tree community.”
To build out and design the 8,200-square-foot space, Vibe Concepts leveraged UNUM collaborative architecture firm and Jordy Construction. The space is anchored by a massive mahogany bar underneath a copper ceiling and features a heated four-season patio, connected to the interior by two large garage doors. The space also has a private dining area that can be closed off for events for up to 75. Vibe Concepts plans to open a third Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse in 2025 in downtown Lakewood, Colo.’s Belmar shopping district.
“With Great Divide Brewery & House, Lone Tree is gaining an exceptional business lunch destination, brunch and dinner hotspot, and a gorgeous taproom,” said Vibe Concepts Director of Operations Justin Adrian. “We’re looking forward to opening this neighborhood eatery and creating lifelong fans of Vibe Concepts.”
Led by Executive Chef James Doxon, the modern brewpub will offer elevated comfort food for brunch, lunch and dinner, including decadent burgers, fresh entrée salads, innovative pizzas, succulent steaks, memorable desserts and beloved pub favorites that the restaurant group is synonymous with. The concept will have 14 Great Divide taps, though no on-site brewing, including two taps of experimental, small batch beers brewed in Castle Rock. They will also have a full wine and cocktail menu.
Great Divide Brewery & Roadhouse features year-round beers, such as Hazy IPA, HeyDay, Titan and Yeti Imperial Stout. There is also rotating seasonal favorites, rotating seasonal Yetis and rotating seasonal Wood Werks barrel series. The brewpub also features Great Divide beers that are exclusive to just the Lone Tree and Castle Rock locations. The wine menu has more than 25 wines by the bottle, alongside a dozen cocktails like Raspberry Basil Paloma, Whiskey Basil Smash, Espresso Martini and Cucumber Mint Mule.
