Celebrate the Newest Brewery Lane Series: Imperial Vanilla Porter Aged in Rum Barrels

Breckenridge Brewery's special series of bold and adventurous recipes brings something new in 750 ml cork and cage bottles just three to four times a year. The releases coming out of its Brewery Lane Series are recognized for their innovation and intrigue. This month the brewery unveiled Imperial Vanilla Porter Aged in Rum Barrels. A stronger rendition of the brewery’s renowned Vanilla Porter recipe, it is powerfully robust in flavor and strength. Relaxing in rum barrels for 55 days, the beer soaks in both the subtle sweetness of rum and savory vanilla flavors from fresh bundles of Madagascar vanilla beans.


“This release takes Vanilla Porter to a new level,” shared Todd Usry, President and Brewmaster of Breckenridge Brewery. “It’s elevated not just in terms of higher ABV and flavor, but in overall complexity. This one’s well-suited to the series…an example of how we continue to push the envelope on existing beers and come out with new surprises.”

The Launch Party on Brewery Lane

Breckenridge Brewery is hosting a Brewery Lane Series celebration that’s open to the public on Saturday, January 27th, from 1:00 to 5:00 at its Littleton, Colorado, tasting room. The launch party is a chance to explore in-depth the making of this beer - with interactive experiences like learning the barrel age method, sensory evaluations of specific ingredients, side-by-side tastings of Vanilla Porter and Imperial Vanilla Porter, beer-infused ice cream sundaes, plus a bottle signing and chances to win tickets to our exclusive Brewery Lane Beer Dinner that evening.

⚡The Imperial Package⚡

The launch party itself is open to the public. But for the true indulgence, special ticket packages are available for purchase that include:
  • Of course, a cork and caged bottle of the Imperial Vanilla Porter.
  • Also a bottle of our last Brewery Lane Series, the Oak Aged Saison (Exceptional rating by Beer Connoisseur Magazine.)
