Breckenridge Brewery opened its doors in 1990 in the mountain town of Breckenridge, Colorado. It’s the third-oldest craft brewery in the state. Nestled below the slopes on Main Street, our brewpub continues to delight locals and visitors with a lively atmosphere, delicious pub fare, and of course, a great selection of beer.

Back in the early days, however, we very quickly found that there was more demand for craft beer than we could possibly make in that location. That’s when Todd Usry, now the brewery’s president, entered the picture. As he began his brewery apprenticeship in Breckenridge, he and the team looked for locations in Denver to build a second brewpub with space for a bigger brewhouse.

In 1992, they opened our second brewpub in downtown Denver. As luck would have it, in 1995, the Colorado Rockies built their stadium across the street. We enjoyed that home but outgrew it, and in 1996, we moved production to 471 Kalamath Street several miles away.

The Kalamath location served us well for 19 years. As we approached 60,000 barrels a year, though, we simply ran out of space for any more expansions. Todd and team once again searched for the right home that would accommodate our growing family. They found it in Littleton, Colorado, 9 miles south of Denver.

In the summer of 2015, a 12-acre stretch of land that was once a carnation farm became our new production home. After 26 years, the focus is still on creating well-balanced, approachable, and interesting beers while also creating memorable visitor experiences. Our farm-inspired campus on Brewery Lane features a new 100 barrel brewhouse, barrel-aging room, all new packaging, dedicated tour staff, and the Farm House restaurant.

90-minute guided brewery/sampling tours are offered five days a week: Thursday-Monday at 11:00, 1:00, 3:00 and 5:00. Please book online at

  • Great improvements made to the location. Expansive lawn for sunny days. Loading dock concert series. Lawn stage, corn hole, fire pits, tour the brew house. Parking is enough to allow for good sized crowd, but limited to allow you to breath. Barrel aged still a favorite!
  • Brewery is beautiful and beer is good. Staff is a little rude and often seems annoyed. I've been there numerous times the last two times with a party of 8. It's with these bigger parties that I have found the staff to be not the friendliest. Not sure if I'll use this place anymore for work outings/corporate events based on these last experiences. For example: 1 plate didn't make it on the table. We told the waiter. He made it right by getting the food out and comping the meal. HOWEVER!!! I had 3 different servers come over to ask how the wings were and then say better when they're free huh? Are you kidding me?! That was your decision to comp them. The wings came out 30 minutes after the others food and our server never noticed until we said something. I appreciate you making it right but the condescending remarks can be left in the kitchen.
