For some of us, we love a nice beverage after a long day of adventure. And what better way to enjoy Breckenridge than with a locally brewed beer, on a patio in the sun après-ski or after an epic (literally breathtaking) hike.
Here for the beer? Check out some of our favorite breweries in Breckenridge and surrounding areas!
You have to check out the original Breckenridge Brewpub while you’re here! Enjoy a pint at the bar and see the beer brewing action right there. Stop in for happy hour from 3-6, daily for $2 off craft beers ranging from traditional ales to lagers, sours, saisons and barrel aged beer. And if you’re hungry, they’ve got a great menu with loads of options.
My personal favorite. Broken Compass has over 10 craft beers on tap and trust me…they’re all good. Have a taste of your favorite beer while playing music video bingo on Monday, trivia on Tuesday, listening to live music on Sunday or hanging out in the sun on their patio. They also offer Fat Tire bike and brewery tours and a free shuttle for those who don’t have a designated driver.
Highside is SO fun. They have an awesome events calendar with live music and comedy happening throughout each month, great craft beers on tap, tasty food and it’s dog friendly. Hang out and play some board games while you’re there too! If you’re looking for a fun night out in Frisco, make sure to stop here for a beer or two.
Craft beers in a yurt? Yes please. Outer Range brews some of the best Belgians and IPAs in Colorado and were named in the Top 15 Breweries in the US! The atmosphere here is fun, wish a local vibe. If someone in your group isn’t a beer lover, don’t worry! They just released rotating wine on tap this month.
Head over to Angry James, one of the newest breweries to Summit County, for delicious local eats, and over 12 beers on tap! ‘Angry Hour’ happens Monday through Thursday from 4-5pm for $1 off pints. They also have live music every Wednesday and trivia night every Thursday. Make sure to check out their full events calendar!
Check out the largest brewpub in the Colorado Rockies for hand-crafted lager and ales, great food and a warm family atmosphere. They have specials everyday ranging from brunch from 11-3pm, happy hour from 3-6pm, a $25 prime rib dinner on Friday and Saturday only and a late-night burger menu. Happy hour includes $3.50 selected pints, wells and house wine. They also have live music, open mic, trivia and more
Stop by Pug Ryan’s for over 15 craft beers, great food options and a family friendly vibe. They offer happy hour, daily from 2-6pm for $2 off pints, $4 wells, house winds and appetizer deals. And if you’re here in the summer, you’re in for a treat. Pug Ryan’s Tiki Bar, located right on Lake Dillon, is a blast with great drinks and good food. It’s the perfect place to soak up the sun and the panoramic views with your favorite beverage.
