Breckenridge Brewery is becoming a well-known American brewing company that is based out of Littleton, Colorado, but has multiple breweries and taste rooms across the state. The art of craft beer brewing can take many different twists and turns to create a signature brew and accompanying ales. Beer flavors and undertones can range from crisp and clean to dark and toasty, fruity and spicy, or malty and sweet.
A few, self-proclaimed ski-bums with a passion for craft beer, are the founders of Breckenridge Brewery, which opened in 1990 in the moutain town of Breckenridge, CO. Since then, they have remained dedicated to all the local mountain communities with a mission to provide a cool, robust, but simple brew that is also a testament to the rugged land that they love so much.
After opening a subsequent brewery in downtown Colorado, the Breckenbridge Brewery gained thousands of loyal Colorado Rockies baseball fans before moving into one of their present locations on Kalamath Street, where they have been successful for over 19 years. The company would find its present headquarters in LIttleton, CO, on a 12-acre farm-inspired piece of land that houses a 100-barrel brew house and The Farmhouse restaurant.
Today, Breckenridge Brewery specializes in crafting beers for any occasion – all featuring unique, but balanced recipes. The company partnered with Anheuser-Busch in 2016 and is now shipping their craft beers to 48 states. Popular brews crafted by Breckenridge Brewery include Oktoberfest, which is an elegant German Amber Lager that’s true to style and Bronco Country that uses locally-sourced ingredients.
Many fans especially enjoy the Juice Drop line of beers that feature soft and intensely lush hoppy flavors and aromas. To gain a brew with a nuanced fruity flavor requires keen attention to the fermentation process. And, the hoppy flavor is unique to the type and quality of grains used. With this line of craft beers, Breckenridge Brewery has succeeded in a milder tasting beer for those fans who do not prefer the rich and somewhat bitter taste of darker ales.
