Breckenridge Brewery

About The Brand

Imagine, if you can, a ski bum who loves to drink beer. It was Richard Squire, who ended his search for the perfect brew by making his own. As the popularity of his beers grew, Squire spent less time on the slopes and more time brewing beer. Today, his Breckenridge Brewery, which officially got its start in 1990, offers an array of ales, including Avalanche Ale, and Summer Bright Ale; porters in flavors such as vanilla and oatmeal; and at several company-owned pubs and restaurants in and around Denver. Its beers also can be bought in stores in more than 20 US states, primarily located in the Midwestern US.
