Breckenridge makes some good beers. You just won’t find them at the brewpub here. Catering to tourists, the place gets mighty crowded. Food is pretty good with some nice views outside if you’re lucky enough to get a seat. Inside is loud. Available beers are the core set of Breck beers. Nothing special or any of their rarer stuff. It’s the only brewery/brewpub in Breckenridge, so if you want that, then head over. You’re probably better off finding other locals at a nearby restaurant, though.

This is my go to place after a ski day at Breck. They know their beer and are always up to discuss what's different about the newest batch of 471 IPA. Get there for happy hour (starts at 3) and most appetizers are half price and $1 off pints. You can't go wrong with a big basket of wings. My favorite is the fish and chips, mostly because of the awesome tarter sauce. The plate goes excellent with the 471.

Breckenridge brewery is a great place to visit if you're in the Breckenridge area. The atmosphere is fantastic, w/ ski lodge vibes. It's very spread out, so in my two visits it's never been very loud- which is nice. The service was good, depending on your waiter. They sometimes disappeared, but not for too long. The beer selection was decent, but there weren't very many beers on tap when I was there. The food was really good, and everyone there seemed to be enjoying the food. Decent prices as well, especially for a tourist trap city. One note of warning- the altitude makes one beer seem like two! I'll definitely head back to Breckenridge Brewery if I'm in the area again. Highly recommended.

Whenever we visit Breckenridge, this is a must stop. I love the samplers so that we can try all of the current beers. Their happy hour is also fantastic. It is the best way to cheaply try the different beers. The appetizers are also very unique and reasonable during happy hour. The staff is very friendly and helpful. While there, my son had a bloody nose (darn elevation) and they were very accommodating. My wife and I enjoy going here to share a pitcher after a long day of skiing, and our son loves the food. Oh, and we once saw a celebrity there, Luke Wilson.

I went here when i was in Breckenridge for vacation. If you don't know many of the beers from Breckenridge brewery this is the proper way to get acquainted. I love almost any one of the brews from BB and their brewery/ restaurant in Breckenridge is amazing. I love the fact that you can enjoy food that is paired with some of the most amazing brews made. Don't get me wrong though... you will pay for it. I love everything they have to offer; from the pitchers of the best craft brews available, but don't forget your wallet. Please enjoy though, you get what you pay for when it comes to quality and from such beautiful surrounding and such tasty brews.

This place was exactly what I had expected - a brewpub with a nice vibe, good service and decent food. They had about eight beers on tap including some interesting options like a vanilla porter, a christmas ale and a chocolate stout. Overall, I thought that the beers were tasty and really drinkable. Both the christmas ale and chocolate stouts were nice versions, true to what I think those styles should be.

There were a lot of people there and there was a lot of energy in the place. I also like that the brewing equipment was right behind the bar. And when I was there a brewer was actually working. No hiding those fermentation tanks behind closed doors.

Summary: Slightly above average brewpub in trendy Colorado mountain town. Worth a visit if you're passing through, otherwise not worth going out of your way.

Stopped in on a Monday about 1:30. While the place wasn't crowded (it wasn't slow, either) there was no parking out front. Plenty of on-the-street parking behind the place, though. The place has a mountain chalet feel with seating upstairs and downstairs. Patio on the side, but it was a bit nippy to be sitting outside on the day I visited. Four Breckenridge beers on the menu plus three seasonals were available. This was my biggest disappointment, as there are many other of their beers available. Service was good, but not exceptional. Prompt, but not offering much in the way of suggestions. Food was well prepared and tasty. Overall, I'm glad I stopped in as I was passing through the town, but was hoping for more selection. Would I go back? Probably not. While the place was slightly above average, I would try finding some place different next time I'm in town.

An average brewpub - about as typical as can be. Given Colorado's (deserved) reputation for craft beer, Breckenridge Brewery is disappointing.

Visited for lunch 2/26/10. Eight beers on tap - four regulars, four seasonals. No guest beers. All drinkable, but average quality at best - with that dispiriting bland sameness across even different styles that you get at some brewpubs. Maybe it's the yeast?

Best beer on my visit was a Pale Ale - nice hop character, but nothing you would make a special trip for (no IPA on tap on my day). An Imperial Brown also pretty good. Everything else, especially the "light" beer and flagship vanilla porter, quite forgettable.

Typical pub-type menu. Again, average quality food at best. I had buffalo wings (not good) and a burger (fine). Spartan decor, reasonable service at the table and bar both.

Breckenridge is not a good beer town. But if you can go to only one place, then Downstairs at Eric's is preferable. They're sure to have at least a few Breckenridge Brewery beers on tap, along with a few from other Colorado breweries. And Eric's food and atmosphere are better than at the Breckenridge Brewpub.

O.K. first I am impressed. An 8 beer, 8 ounce glasses of the sampler was only 8 dollars. WOW. We also had a highly recommended Vanilla Porter and Oatmeal Stout half in half (no deliniation between beers in the glass)from the hostess. It was great. Better than either of the two alone. The beers were good. The 150 was probably my favorite, or the English Pale. Food was also good. Highly recommended when in Breckenridge. Around 30 bucks for a $2 pint (between 3 and 8), an 8 beer sampler and two small meals. We'll be eating and drinking there again.

Come for happy hour in the summer! $2 pints!

The lineup is what you already know, Agave Wheat, Oatmeal Stout, Avalanche Amber. I don't know if side-by-side the examples here would taste better then Denver, but i assure you at altitude they do.

Fave was the Breck 150, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the town of Breckenridge, co. Nice scottish ale, warming.

Much better feel then lodo or Sante Fe, again this could be the altitude talking.

Brew house is not hidden away, actually the bar is the all natural extension of the kettles and mash tuns.

Did not stop to eat (got full at last stop), but the green chili smelled wonderful.

Well worth the drive to the end of town.
