Breckenridge Brewery – A Microbrew Pioneer

Breckenridge Brewery – A Microbrew Pioneer

The Breckenridge Brewery opened February 1990 and was the first Colorado mountain town brewery to begin pouring for the people of these high altitude towns. Richard Squire the founder of the brewpub was a passionate home brewer who loved to ski but found he enjoyed making beer the most. From that desire the Breckenridge Brewery was born and the mashing, boiling and fermenting process began in their new building on the corner of South Main and Ridge Street. For 23 years locals and visitors have frequented the establishment as it grew in to a full service restaurant and bar. With its longevity has come growth. The Breckenridge Brewery now operates five locations; three in Denver, one in Grand Junction and the original location in Breckenridge. Between all of them over 52,000 barrels of beer are produced on an annual basis with the Breckenridge Tasting Room on Kalamath Street in Denver serving as their main brewery and production facility. A tribute to the company is how long people have worked...
