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.
Our two locations, Breckenridge and Littleton, are destinations for locals and out-of-towners. As of 2016 Breckenridge Brewery became a proud member of The High End, a family of craft breweries and unit of Anheuser-Busch. We now send beer to thirty-five states and continue to create new and exciting beers. Our portfolio contains classics like Vanilla Porter, Avalanche Amber Ale, Agave Wheat, 471 Double IPA, and Breck IPA, along with a variety of specialty beers that include seasonals, barrel-aged beers, the Brewery Lane Series, and a newly announced nitrogen-charged canned series.
