Thank you, Broncos, for the best birthday gift ever!

Thursday, February 11, 2016

Sunday, February 7, 2016 will go down in history as the day the Denver Broncos won their third world championship. That day also marked our TWENTY SIXTH BIRTHDAY! It seems like just a few months ago we were kicking off our quarter-century celebration, but as we’ve come to realize, the older we get, the faster time flies.

471 IPA Barrel Series featuring Simcoe hops – Available Now!

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Our whiskey barrel-aged 471 double IPA series features a special hop variety that's used in the dry hop addition. Simcoe is the star this quarter. This hop works well for bittering and aroma, and it's always been an important ingredient in our 471 Small Batch Double IPA. In this release, adding Simcoe in that last phase gives the beer a subtle pine and citrus aroma, and the same attributes are noticeable in the crisp hop flavor. The abundance of hops are balanced by sweet fullness of malt, lending flavors reminiscent of caramel. These characteristics linger on the palate with flavors from the barrel, warming the tongue until the next sip.

A Letter From Your Friends at Breckenridge Brewery

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Today’s announcement of our acquisition by Anheuser-Busch’s craft and import division may come as a surprise to many of you. We want to share with you how we came to this decision, what it means to Breckenridge Brewery and to those who’ve supported us for so long.

We’ve been in this creative and dynamic industry for over 25 years, loving everything about it. That won’t change. The passion for quality and culture that got us where we are today isn’t going anywhere. We’re proud of the fact that you can find our beers in 35 states; we’ve worked hard to get our beers to as many of you as possible throughout the years. The High End, Anheuser-Busch’s craft and import division, shares the same excitement for our category and commitment to quality. We will join a group of established and innovative craft brewers as part of The High End, and we look forward to what opportunities these relationships will bring to us.

Our brewpub in Breckenridge, our Littleton brewery and its Farm House restaurant are all part of this new entity. Other properties under the Breckenridge-Wynkoop umbrella will continue to be owned and operated by B-W and are not part of this arrangement.

Of course, the same great team who helped build Breckenridge Brewery won’t be going anywhere. We are excited about the opportunity this partnership brings to all of us. We’ll continue to own decisions about the beers we create and the ingredients in them. What people relate to in this industry is authenticity. If there were plans to come in and change our employees, our culture, and our recipes, well, that would completely undermine the reason for the partnership at all. What this new partnership does offer us is access to resources that will help us continue to innovate and bring our beer to more people.

We ultimately owe our success to you, our followers and supporters. I hope you will give us the chance to prove to you over time that we will continue to be Breckenridge Brewery.

Sincerely,

J. Todd Usry

President, Breckenridge Brewery

16-oz Nitrogen-Charged Cans Coming Soon!

Monday, December 21, 2015

Breckenridge Brewery will introduce an all-new line of portable and versatile nitrogen-carbonated beer in the first quarter of 2016. The 16-oz can presents the ability to experience silky, smooth nitrogen-charged beer outside of the pub, even taking that experience to the great outdoors. This can promotes “nitro on the go,” for although a glass displays the cascading effects of the nitrogen head, with Breckenridge’s can design the glass is optional. The Nitro Series from Breckenridge Brewery can be enjoyed anywhere – in a glass or right from the can.

Introducing Twenty Five: Imperial Vanilla Porter Aged in Rum Barrels

Monday, November 16, 2015

For our Silver Anniversary, we've spun gold. 

Twenty Five is a special-release beer celebrating 25 years of craftsmanship from Breckenridge Brewery. The recipe starts with an imperial version of our popular Vanilla Porter, resulting in more prominent flavors and stronger alcohol. We then let the beer relax in Barbados rum barrels. In each barrel, we added incredibly rare, fresh, wet, vanilla beans from the Veracruz region of Mexico.  These beans come from small family farms - are hand pollinated and hand picked. 

The result is luxury in a bottle.
