Breckenridge Brewery hosts Grand Opening in Littleton

Breckenridge Brewery will host a grand opening for its new Littleton campus on Father's Day weekend, with public tours beginning Sunday, June 21 (reservations encouraged). The brewery will host four scheduled tours a day, Wednesday through Monday.

"We want to create a very personal experience with each tour, so you'll find that we take our time getting to know small groups of guests and introducing them to Breckenridge Brewery behind the scenes," said Sarah Kokkeler, director of the brewery's tour program.

Tours start in the tasting room, across the plaza from the brewery's Farm House restaurant, with a 10-ounce pour from the daily selection on tap. The tour path leads from the tasting room to the brewery mezzanine overlooking the four-vessel, 100-barrel brewhouse, across the bridge to the fermentation building and continues on to barrel aging and packaging. Tours conclude back in the tasting room with four 4-ounce samples of each visitor's choice.

Tour reservations can be made at http://www.breckbrew.com/about/tours. The $3 charge for tours covers generous samplings, and a portion will go to rotating charities. Nondrinkers, including those younger than 21, are welcome to participate in tours for no charge.
