Breckenridge BreweryThe Breckenridge Brewery was formed in the 1980’s by Richard Squire. Squire used to make handcrafted beers in his basement until he started the brewery. At first, the company began with only the capacity to manufacture 3,000 barrels of beer per year, but now they can churn out 62,000 barrels at their new location just outside of Denver.

The principles have remained the same as the day the company was started, which is why the Breckenridge Brewery has reached the ranks of number three producer of craft beer in the United States. BB was the first Colorado company to sell their handcrafted beverages in six and twelve-packs. Currently, their products are sold in 32 states in the U.S.

Tours

BB provides a public tour every Thursday through Monday. The tour costs three dollars per person with one dollar of every admission going to the South Suburban Park Foundation; they maintain and create public recreational areas in the South Denver Metro neighborhood. Visitors get the chance to sample five craft beers, one from each line of currently produced beers.

Alehouses and brew houses

The Breckenridge Brewery has six different restaurants and ale houses where guests can visit and try the different craft beers on tap. The drinking establishments are located in Breckenridge, Denver, Littleton, and Grand Junction, Colorado. Every dish and drink served at the clubs are given the same careful attention as the handcrafted beers they are paired with for meals. Whether guests want an American Pale Wheat Ale or an Oatmeal Stout, BB has them covered with ice-cold mugs and a bit of friendly conversation.
