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.

Just there to grab growlers and their bourbon barrel IPA was phenomenal and fresh from the draft tap. Since I was in a rush I got a growler of both their agave wheat and their bourbon barrel IPA. I recommend slicing a few oranges and dropping them in each glass of agave wheat served to family, friends, and yourself!

Beer was awesome! Great selection, just wish they had Imperial 72 on tap. Food was great and a great selection. The service was great as well! Really liked this brewery!

Went several years ago before I was into craft beer like I am now. I remembered the beers being OK, but the place was packed and didn't have a lot of space. It was worth a trip to try their tasty brews, but nothing stood out about the venue itself.
