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.

tough to beat this place up i breck, especially at happy hour when beers are super cheap. this is where it all started for breck, crazy how far they have come. its a quaint but good sized place, mountain themed like they all are out that way, and with maybe 8 beers on, including some stuff they never bottle, like a black ipa that absolutely rules. quiet during the week in the off season too, so now is the time to head up there if you dont want to be elbow to elbow. the bartender was on her phone a lot, but friendly enough and generous with giving us tastes of stuff. their kolsch was awesome i though, just enough little sweetness to it, clean, cheap. food looked tasty and big portioned, but i didnt eat there. i enjoy the vibe, but this is a place more about colorado beer history, they have come a long way, and its really worth a visit. you can get a buzz for under ten bucks on happy hour too, definitely makes sense on a budget in a resort town.
