Featured Brewery: Breckenridge Brewery

February 23, 2011

Hello Beer Friends Nation!

Breckenridge Brewery LogoThe Breckenridge Brewery is a favorite of Colorado folks with a few locations all over the state.  While the Original Brewery and Pub is located on South Main Street in Breckenridge, they have a location on Blake St. Denver across from Coors Field, a BBQ joint and brewpub in Denver, and a Ale House in Grand Junction.  Known for delicious beers, Breckenridge has a firm foothold in the brewery rich Colorado beer scene and doesn’t look to be letting up any time soon.  On the recent Beer Friends Colorado Brewery tour we visited the Blake Street location to try a few beers and chat up a few bartenders.

A few details on the beers:

Avalanche Ale is one of their most popular beers and for good reason, this amber ale gives the famous Fat Tire a run for it’s money in the amber scene across Colorado.  While Fat Tire is more readily available, strike up a conversation about Avalanche Ale with a bartender and prepare yourself for a detailed argument.

Beer for Brunch?

March 7, 2010

A burger for breakfast?  No way.  A burger for lunch?  Of course, but it’s only 10am I don’t think I can have lunch this early.  A burger for brunch?  Absolutely.  Brunch is a favorite past time of a lot of New Yorkers on the weekend.  While it’s usually an excuse to drink early in the day, it also helps fill in that awkward grazing time between the early AM and the early afternoon.  At 10 in the morning I don’t think I could usually, but it’s not actually breakfast, its brunch.   There’s that wonderful culinary loophole and while the two famous brunch drinks are Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s, this Beer Friend asks why not a beer?
