Just down the hill/main road from downtown Breck, this casual and friendly kinda spot consists of a main room with bar area and a smattering of outside tables out back..

Bring food in if you like, or order food from the sometimes present food truck, enjoy the wide variety of draft options and soak in the mountain air and mountain hospitality from the friendly staff...I enjoyed a tasty Samba juice NEIPA and got some cans to go.

Cans and growler fills to go are always a plus.

13 tasty offering available on tap when we visited.

Worthy spot to check out and enjoy a few quality brews if visiting the area.

V - The vibe was completely chill, reminded me of low batch breweries in small towns from 10 years ago; nice, relaxed, some outdoor seating. No food on premises other than the occasional food truck (call first if you're hungry).
Q - the range of beers was interesting, anything from a "chocolate" Bock to traditional stout, to IPA/DIPA and an occasional barrel-aged brown. Good, a few of the IPAs/DIPAs I found a tad flat or under-carbonated, but everything tasted pretty good.
S - The high point; young guy behind the counter, running things and keeping everyone distant, safe, and at separate tables and yes - masked in this particular window of our history (COVID-19).
S - Good range on the brewery variety of what they're doing here - 16 taps, did a flight, settled on a DIPA, and relaxed outdoors on a beautiful sunny day. What's better than that?

I enjoyed this mountain brewery, located sort of in Breckenridge but away from the Main St hubbub. It's a bit hard to find, but worth the stop. They've got a dozen or so brews on tap at all times, and there's a good variety of beers within that list. The vibe is definitely that of a mountain town, so stop in after a day in the snow and enjoy.

Found the brewery Labor Day weekend 2014, LOVED IT! Have been back every year since and send everyone I know there if they are in Brek on vacation. Love the beer, love the people, so deserving of their medals at GABF and was lucky to be present both years when they won! Cheers!

Small, chill place, located off the beaten path in Breckenridge. Small batch brewing company that doesn't distribute (according to the bartender, they don't intend to anytime soon because they sell through everything in house). The quality beers sell themselves and there is always a decent crowd. It is a dog friendly place where you'll find one or two or even a half dozen dogs running around ski town/Colorado-pride decor. The service is good. No food served. This hidden brewery in my opinion is the best in Breckenridge. Not as touristy as Breck Brewery and the beers are also much better.

Vibe: Chill spot with a lot of local touches to remind you that you are in Breckenridge, including some restored chairlift benches and ski stuff on the walls. Well done.

Quality: The beers are really good, and a little diverse. They are either good or great, and are generally interesting.

Service: Service was friendly and prompt.

Selection: They had about 12 beers available including some variants of their regular styles including some barrel-aged stuff.

Overall: Well worth a visit, this might be the best brewery in the Summit County area, even though it is one of the newest. I predict they are going places.

A surprise to find in Breckenridge as I'd heard there were no breweries in town (haha, guess no one considers Breck Brew a brewery which is valid to me).

The location is removed from the walking parts of Breckenridge and the place has an industrial feel. It's loud and lively inside and clearly has a strong fan base already.

The beers were all good with none reaching greatness. But they get some props for variety and some more adventurous beers like a ginger pale and a chile beer.

I think this place will continue to improve and eventually catch fire. At present, it's more than worth a stop in if in Breckenridge.

quite possibly my favorite new brewery, this place is amazing! quaint little taproom with a real cool feel. old lift chairs for seating and a ton of cool wood features. brew house is in the back, and there are maybe eight or so beers on, with my first choice the coconut porter being out. im glad it was though, as it forced me to try the coffee stout, which i now think is one of the best beers made in colorado, and one of the best coffee beers of all time, its simply stunning. my lady had the ginger pale ale, which was also excellent, and the others we had were nice as well, but that coffee stout, oh my goodness!!! one server behind the bar a little overwhelmed it seemed by the post ski crowd, but she did her best and was real friendly. dogs running around, people playing games, not unlike other taprooms, except something felt authentic about this place, genuine, people there were awesome, the beer was out of this world, and i could have sat there for an entire day comfortable and happy. nice value too, prices were reasonable and i cant wait to go back. this was my favorite new brewery visit ive been on in a very long time. these guys are killing it!

Been here before, but only ranked overall. Here are some details:

Small taproom was very busy when we arrived. Not hoppin' but definitely had some energy. We chose a quiet spot on the patio.

Had a taster of a few, and quality was good across the board. Bartender said a few of their taps were out, so selection wasn't what it should have been.

Bar service was helpful. Server was knowledgeable and changed to a 6-taster since it was cheaper than 5 individual samples

Really enjoy this place. Good to have another brewery in Breck!

Small laid back bar with good variety of biers on the outskirts of Breck. Recommend the Helles. Bring your growler. Will be back for the Belgium Wit.
