There are more Breckenridge brewpubs in Denver than in Breckenridge these days, so the real Breckenridge Brewery and Pub feels like either a relic or a site of pilgrimage, depending on your point of view.
The pub interior is cramped and nondescript. There are a handful of tables scattered around the bar area, and there are more substantial dining rooms upstairs and on the flanks of the bar area. The walls have a lot of early artwork and memorabilia from the Breck Brewery but not much else.
They had seven beers on tap--five of the Breckenridge standards (Trademark, Avalanche, Oatmeal Stout, Autumn Ale, and 471 IPA) and two beers (Breck Light and Pilsen) that are available only at the Breck Brewpub. In general, the beers were uninspiring and underdone. The Pilsen lacked any hop presence, and the Autumn Ale--though palatable--seemed confused as to whether it was a brown ale or an old ale. The 471 IPA's aroma vaguely reminded me of cleaning products, and it was too imbalanced towards hops to be quaffable.
I didn't try any food on this visit, though, from what I remember in the past, the menu is mostly standard pub fare (though relatively inexpensive for Summitt County standards). There are better places to stop and drink in Summit County--Dillon Dam, Pug Ryan's--and there are better places to eat in Breckenridge. Skip this one.

We just got back from a Breck and had a great visit. This is of course one place you should go just to say you did. I've never been a huge fan of their beers. They are good but not great. There is a small selection of about a dozen other beers which compared to Texas isn't bad. It's a great place to have a beer with a nice environment and a big menu. The food that we tried however was not very good. Greasy fish and chips, frozen chicken strips with some sort of white watery "gravy" that was closer to creamer than gravy. The nachos were bad beyond description. Being from Texas though I have a pretty high standards on nachos. So, all that being said, the beer and environment are quite good, but I'd get something to eat else where.
