Breckenridge Brewery began as an idea, back in the 1980's by its founder Richard Squire, who was your typicalski bum – with one significant difference. He had a knack for making extraordinary home brews. For years, only his closest friends were able to enjoy his creations, but it didn’t take long for Richard to realize that his talents needed to be shared with the world. So, in February of 1990, Richard opened the doors of Breckenridge Brewery,Colorado’s third craft brewery, in charming and historic Breckenridge.He wanted to serve fresh, quality beer and homemade food in a relaxedatmosphere that everyone could enjoy. It didn’t take long for locals andvisitors alike to appreciate these simple values, and within a few short years Breckenridge Brewery was the highlight of Main Street. In 1992, the Brewery expanded its operations to Denver so that they could share the magic with more folks in Colorado. The Denver facility was the first Colorado brewery to package craft beer in 6-packs and12-packs. Today, you can find their collection of beers in 32 states. However, their mission remains the same: create balanced, approachable and interesting hand-crafted beers. Their restaurants and Ale Houses share the same commitment to quality, which is evident in the excellent food and service you’ll find at each.
