Back to some of my x-country adventures - this stop in Denver. My friends knowing all about my beer geekdom had a spot all lined up rather close to their home. And it was happy hour, where everyone wins.
Surprisingly the place wasn't very crowded. The layout was part bbq joint / part brewery. The huge kettles filled out the back part while the kitchen was more to the front. You could smell the glorious hops.
Breckinridge Mountain is a popular ski resort about 2 hours west of Denver. The brewery is now headquartered in Denver with 2 brewpubs in the city (the other by Coors Field). My guess is most (all?) of the brewing is done at the location we were at. Their bottled beer is available pretty much everywhere in Colorado.
Having driven 675 miles that day (from Des Moines, Iowa), I had plenty of appetite. I ordered the pulled pork sammich, which came with corn bread. It was plenty of food (maybe too much) that hit the spot. The bbq sauce was nice and tangy. I couldn't finish the whole thing especially with my belly filling up with their beers.
Never having any before, it was a pretty easy pick to get the sampler. With the happy hour pricing - it was only $6 too. Usually samplers are a couple ounces each. Not here, each sample was around 5 ounces. So all of a sudden the sampler is a TON of beer.
Definitely a great choice if in Denver.

If the beer in their bottles tasted like it does here, I'd be drinking a lot more breckenridge! Place has a nice airy open feel to it, didn't seem contrived at all. Very laid back feeling to the place
Beer quality was pretty tasty, never had it this fresh in any of my local haunts
Service was pretty good, althoigh the 1st time I was there, the bartender took& tossed my beer my 7 year-old's ice cream & rockies cup,when he needed to hit the head. Much consternation over that, I got half a free beer outta the deal
I counted 11 beers on tap. The big brown, 471 IPA, long iron pils& avalanche reserve were all tasty
Food selection & quality were good, head here to eat& then go hit falling rock tap house!
Great value, $3 pints & reasonably priced food. A pretty nice place in an area loaded with drinking options

Actually, this is the actual brewery with a BBQ joint and tasting room attached. South of downtown Denver and open weekdays only, tours are free. Great tour and they'll even pour you a pint for the walk through. Their BBQ is awesome. Really low key. There is a window where you order the food and they call your name when it is up. A couple of televesions with open seating. Seems like a real fun place to grab some BBQ and beer after work. Lunch may be busy, but I think with the setup they may accomodate pretty quickly. This would be my first stop heading up from the Springs for a brewery tour of Denver.

Located right across the street from Coors Field. Good luck finding a seat just before or after a Rockies game. So I decided to visit the place long after the game was over, and glad I did. I tried each of their beers from the sampler. With a taste of the hops being my choice, I settled in on the Avalanche Amber and pale ale. The patrons were friendly and entertaining, talked a lot of baseball with me, and the bartending staff were a lot of fun. The whole brewpub had a lot of character and a very laid back attitude as well. I purchased a great looking black t-shirt with their logo on the front and one on the back with the Rocky Mountains that reads: "Hand-crafted ales".
