Nectar of the beer gods.
Agave complements the refreshingly light quality of our wheat and adds a subtle note of flavor that expands this beer’s uplifting taste profile. It is familiar, yet creative.
IBU: 13 | ABV: 4.4%
Slides down easy.
That’s what makes our Avalanche amber ale such a treat. We blend pale and caramel malts — and just a kiss of bittering hops — to create a refreshing-but-flavorful, anytime beer. Aromas of pale grains, a semisweet middle and a clean-as-Colorado-snow finish make this our best-selling beer.
IBU: 19 | ABV: 4.4%
Colorado-style India Pale Ale
Finding the right balance of aroma, hoppiness and fullness of flavor is a mountain worth climbing. That’s what we’ve done with Breck IPA. Scrutiny of ingredients and experimentation with process resulted in this yin and yang – distinctively pleasant floral aroma with crisp hop flavor that’s mellowed by Full Pint malt, a relatively new and unique malt variety. Drink up. Breck IPA is available all year long!
IBU: 66 | ABV: 6.3%
Dark in character. Not in spirit.
It’s a bold, smooth-bodied concoction that oozes dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semisweet chocolate. We round out these heady pleasures with a dose of flaked oatmeal for a creamy body and a semi-dry finish. Unforgettable.
IBU: 36 | ABV: 5.0%
Deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grows the perfect ingredient for an extraordinary Porter brewed in Colorado. Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter. An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure.
IBU: 16 | ABV: 5.4%
Silky, Smooth & Sessionable
“Nitro Vanilla Porter”: Our remarkably complex, wildly popular ale combines hints of chocolate, caramel, and coffee with an inventively delicious twist, for good measure. A vortex of flavors made even more alluring by a blast of nitrogen.
IBU: 16 | ABV: 5.4%
