Littleton, CO – January 27, 2020 - Breckenridge Brewery is proud to release Mile High City, a brilliantly bright, full-flavored copper lager brewed in collaboration with the Denver Nuggets.

Mile High City will be released in full fanfare across Colorado and at Pepsi Center on Thursday, Jan. 30, during the Denver Nuggets vs. Utah Jazz game.
