Remember last summer when we shared with you this picture of a coaster, above, hinting at the future awesomeness of Breckenridge Brewery and their new digs? Well, folks, the future is almost here. The new $36-million Breckenridge Brewery and Farm House restaurant campus is nearly complete.
There is no lack of beer festivals in Colorado during the summer, that’s a fact. It a downright beerapalooza all summer long! There are beer festivals galore – big and small, indoor and outdoor, for profit and for a purpose. In seven days we managed to hit two separate beer festivals: the Breckenridge Summer Beer Festival in on Saturday July 13th, and the Hops for Habitat Brewfest on Friday, July 19th. How did they stack […]
TGIF! It’s finally Friday, and what better way to celebrate than with a firkin and a fundraiser? We started our Friday happy hour at Great Divide, where they had a firkin of Sticky Icky, a pale ale that has been “wet hopped” with some fresh local hops.

This month’s weather has been a gift from Mother Nature. Usually, March is the snowiest month of the year in Colorado. So far this month we haven’t seen a single flake in the Denver metro area. Instead, we’ve enjoyed temperatures in the mid-70s F. Without a calendar, I would swear it’s actually May. All this warm weather makes us crave a cold beer and backyard barbecue. Fortunately, we knew just where to go to get […]
