Stopped here for dinner while on a business trip. Happened to hit "Happy Hour Wednesday" when all drafts were $2.50. Good selection of Breckenridge offerings.
Had a very attentive server, who was also the bartender. She never let our glasses get empty and promptly cleared our plates.
Food was good BBQ, nothing to fancy but good and the prices were very reasonable, about $10 a plate.
It wasn't a large place, really just a small pub attached to the brewery, but it had a comfy atmosphere none-the-less.
I'd recommend it to anyone in the area.

the first thing that happened when we walked in was waiting for a few minutes while one greeter was answering stupid questions and a second greeter was behind the first staring into space. now that that's out of the way.
the atmosphere was great. we walked to our seating in the upstairs area and you could tell everyone there was happy or content. we sat down and ordered some beers. the porter was good.
we ordered the artichoke dip appetizer. we had more things to dip than dip itself... the food portions, however, were huge.
our server messed up our bill and mischarged us for something but she quickly fixed the problem.
in the end it was an ok dining experience.

Located a fair bit south and west of the most of the beer 'action' in Denver. Not sure I'd walk the 10+ blocks from the Convention Center south the Breckenridge Brewing. Kalamath is a one-way street heading south, so you will need to approach from the north. Parking can be a bit tough during peak hours.
Upon entering, guests encounter a portion of the bar, the take-out portion of the restaurant (left), and cooler with bottles for sale (hard right). Turn right to enter the main dining area, which winds around a bit further to the right. Decor is wood with beerania and beer poster/pictures on the walls. Seating is cozy and the BBQ smell wonderful. In the back, past the bathrooms is a room for private parties. Menu offers a wide selection of BBQ and some typical pub fare. BBQ is decent, but this is not a place for vegetarians. Seeking a light bite one time, I ordered the red beans & rice and was disappointed. Service is knowledgeable, friendly, and timely.

So, halfway between the airport and Denver proper, I get a call from Ray letting me know that he'd given the job I interviewed twice for, to someone who wasn't me. What? After I was done disgustingly politely thanking him for considering me for a job I didn't end up getting, I reconciled that I didn't want it in the first place, but got to be thinking what a GABF weekend kill it was just the same. Motherphucker!! I just knew I shouldn't have picked up the damn phone...
But then, BBQ and beer time heals all wounds, it's true. Nominal driving around 'til the old factory space brewpub's found and then landed a slander spot out front. Arched ceiling, I beams and exposed duct work, drop ceiling fans and mounted lamps. Beige and green painted walls over wood slat lower, the room mostly decorated with Breckenridge prints & placards, and some framed GABF awards. The rear wall is framed with large windows looking in on the brewroom, with a row of fermenters up front. Breckenridge logo banners hang high over the Brewerania pieces displayed, old cans and some Breckenridge 22's lining the trim above running around the room, and vintage record albums (Easy Rider, Tom Jones) in the window sills. Nearly a dozen and a half square tables and booths with a small pool table very strangely placed in the center of the room, and Phil's Golf Game (Complete) tucked away in a rear rear area down the way some. A food order placement counter sits just off the door with a big menu board above. What? No, I'm going to need a minute, I just walked in, I've gotta look at the big board some. Little cold fridge right there for getting bottles to go and shirts & shwag in the corner. Just off to the right, an angled wood bar seats 7, with a 7 tap single tower on the barback, tiered booze and stacked glassware there, and a small flatscreen mounted above.
Ordered up some food and a sampler and pulled a table. The sampler is 7 house beers served on a placemat. 5 main line beers (The Avalanche Ale, an amber, had a nice maltiness; the Trademark Pale Ale, some decent floral hoppiness; the Oatmeal Stout, smooth, chocolate and coffee, pleasant; the Vanilla Porter, creamy vanillaness, nice, but more like a brown ale; the Agave Hefe, unusual, with a nice sweet flavor), and 2 small batch beers (The Double Hopped IPA, very aggressively hopped at 9.2% and the 471 ESB, hoppy, but with a nice malt backbone at 7.8%). I think the best of the lot were the Ooatmeal Stout, Vanilla Porter and the Extra ESB, but I don't think there was a clunker in the lot. Not half the number of beers they had on at the Ball Park brewpub when I was there back in '04, but I liked what I had here better this time around.
Washed it down with a barbecue combo of smoked turkey and pork ribs, both were very good, and sides beans with sausage and some good creamy cole slaw. Server person was attentive and dealt us some comp passes to some brewer's event we didn't end up making it out to, but it was good of her just the same.
Well, 3 hours and counting 'til the first session and we haven't gone role called our tix yet or even hit the hotel, so I guess we need be drinking up...

Food is inexpensive and truly a bargain. Beer is great a ton of select good tasting beers. Avalanche is a big hit but I think just because of the name and the town it's in. Overall a nice experience. Nice happy hour $2 beers. Can't beat that with a stick. Appetizers include sausage with BBQ sauce - which I would recommend. Also ribs and wings. Sampler platter is $7, includes 3 wings, 3 ribs and a half dozen sausages in BBQ sauce.
2 people, 3 good beers and 2 appetizers. 30 bucks. In Denver that is areal nice deal.
By the way I would recommend the 471 IPA. MMM. MMM. Good.

First off let me say that some of the food is reasonably priced. However, What is with charging 4 dollars for a pint of YOUR OWN BEER! There food is good though. I had a nice pork sandwich.
This place has a laid back atmosphere. The employees know some about the beer. I try hard not to hold it against them that some of their taps poured nothing but head and foam.
They have all of their beers there with a couple of other brews. They make a decent amount of beer for everyone from light beer to RIS.
They have some tvs to watch. It could be a nice place to watch a football game. It's definetly a place to try when in Denver.

We arrived to an unforseen wonderfulness. Monday night is all-night happy hour. And we were immediately teleported to a very happy land indeed, a land where all beers were only $2.00 each and even our meals were reduced in price.
The atmosphere can't be beat for a brew pub. Staff was super friendly and attentive without being pushy. They would just glide by so you could stop them if needed, and occasionally check in on us. Very good bbq, and on occasion a whiff of hickory smoke would enter the bar area. Since the bar was otherwise smokeless, I assumed that they were just opening a window, door or vent and bringing in the smoke to remind us that they really were smoking it all there. Pretty cool though since it wasn't enough to actually make us smell like the bbq, or to interfere with the food and beer.
The beer was very good. The vanilla porter was very vanilla, but I still really liked it.
The oatmeal stout was a very rich choco-coffee thing which was exceedingly enjoyable.
The 471 IPA smells big, pretty balanced (in the way an IPA is balanced). Lots of stuff going on but a singular bitter note stands out for the length of the drink. A very good double IPA. I suppose I should have grabbed some to go.
Well, I guess I will have to stop back next time. Nice!

Parking was a pain in the ass because there was a Rockies game when I went, but I suppose I can't hold that against them. The place looks kind of corpo from the outside, but is really cool looking on the inside. I ordered a bison burger (I know, why not the BBQ) and it came quickly while I had a 471 IPA and a Vanilla Porter. The IPA was excellent but the porter was lacking. There were about a dozen Breckenridge beers on tap and several guest beers from Great Divide, Oscar Blues, and other breweries. The burger was really good and the waiter was not only knowledgeable but very friendly. An awesome experience all around.

We started out my buddy's bachelor party at the Breck. It is a nice cozy little brewpub. Small bar but adequate seating. The pool was free so we got to shoot a couple games after we ate. The 471 IPA was amazing so we ordered a couple pitchers. That beer does not disappoint, especially on tap. The best part was the BBQ. I got pulled pork and sausage and I plowed through it. The sauce is quite spicy and very, very good. The prices are reasonable and you get a lot of food. I did not leave hungry at all. Very cool place and I will definitely be returning soon. Yum!

Very nice place in downtown Denver. Big warehouse style eatery. There is a big bar with all of Breckenridge's beers on tap. The Small Batch beers on tap when I was there was Thunder Stout and 471 IPA. They offer 10oz or 20oz pours on all of their beers. The menu is very big and the service was good on our visit. I had a plate of ribs and french fries that was very tasty. The prices on everything are very reasonable. There is tons of swag for sale up front. I bought their pint glass special at 4 glasses for $10. Kid friendly as well. I enjoyed my visit.
