Beer And Baths

The folks decided to do some sightseeing in Golden on Saturday.  Coors beer is made here, so they decided to take a tour.  They think they did that years ago, but Mom isn't sure. 

The folks were disappointed in the tour.  It was self-guided and nothing was happening.  I guess if you take the tour during the week, you actually see product being made.

We are from the St. Louis area and Mom has taken the Anheuser Busch tour a few times and said it was 100% better.




This was in the restroom.  Mom thought it was blog-worthy.  :::snicker:::

Some of the Coor products.

Brewing

Packaging, but nothing was being packaged.


After the tour, samples were given out.

A view from the brewery.
 After visiting Coors, they decided to eat lunch. They visited D'deli which gets great reviews and Dad has been told it is great by co-workers.  People were lined up to get inside.  The wait was probably about 20 minutes.  Mom had the Oinky sandwich.  It had ham, bacon, BBQ pork and coleslaw.  She said it was okay but she probably wouldn't have it again.  She can't remember what Dad had, but he liked it.

Inside D'deli.
The folks then visited the Astor House.  It was built in 1867 and served as a boarding house until the 1960's.  The house had the first bathtub in Golden.  Hot baths were $.25 and it is said that the owner made more money from the bathtub than regular rent.

One of the bedrooms.


View from the balcony. The balcony had to be removed due to people spitting on people on the streets.  All balconies in Golden were ordered to be removed because of this.  It was re-added back in the 70's when the house was deemed a historic building.

Another view from the balcony.

One more view.

Rope bed.
The Astor House was interesting, but nothing really special.  I guess the folks are getting tired of looking at old houses.
