The joke is if you survive the food, it's like the Mexican food Disneyland. For $15 you get an all-you-can-eat dining experience (actually, the sopapillas are great) and entertainment which is second to none: vingette performances compete with cliff-diving, a rip through Black bart's Cave, and arcade, etc. It's a Denver icon.

Great tour of industrial beer making, and three free samples at the end. If you just want the beer, park close, walk to the lobby and ask for the "short tour." You can also take the self-guided long tour.
