Breckenridge Brewing Company celebrates 20 years of 'producing fine Colorado Ales' with a Brewmaster's Beer Dinner Thursday July 8, 2010 and Pig Roast & Anniversary Party on Saturday July 10, 2010. Both events are open to the public.
The Brewmaster's Beer Dinner on July 8th at 6:30 pm will be hosted by Brewmaster Todd Usry at the Breckenridge Brewery's production facilities at 471 Kalamath St. in Denver. The dinner will include 4 courses of food and 5 Breckenridge beers with tickets available for $40 pre-sale at the both Breckenridge Brewing Company locations in Denver. This will be a great opportunity to see how the brewers paired their beers with food as well as discuss with the nuances of food & beer pairing and ask questions.
The Pig Roast on July 10th at Breckenridge Brewery's main facilities at 471 Kalamath in Denver will be an "outdoor party starting at noon that includes music by Marty Jones and the Great Unknown, The Goat Ropers, and Joe Apice of foma. In addition to serving great barbecue and Breckenridge beers, the brewery will offer tastings of special single release barrel-aged beers and firkin treatments of current mainline beers. The Infinite Monkey Theorem, an urban winery and neighbor of the brewery's, will also offer tastings of it's Colorado-made wines." In addition, Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey from just doors down the street will also be attending the celebration, offering samples and talking about what they do so well.
Tickets to the Pig Roast can be purchased the day of the event and the $20 entry fee includes unlimited food & beer and all music and special tastings with a portion of the entry fee benefiting the Colorado Brewers Guild. $10 tickets for under 21 and designated drivers will be available.
The Colorado Brewers Guild promotes the quality and diversity of the Colorado craft brewing industry through consumer education, media relations, and the promotion of positive legislation for Colorado craft brewers.
If you attend either event, ask about Vesper French Saison, brewed early this spring in celebration of the 20th anniversary as well as in celebration of homebrewing.
