Breweries or Beers in Breckenridge Colorado
 
I am going up there Feb 3rd to ski. I booked a room close to the Breckenridge brewery so I plan to go there for sure.

Any other places worth hitting for beers close by? I wont have a car, but could take a taxi if it is worth it.

Fort Collins Brewery isn't too far away. Maybe Boulder Brewery as well. I think Avery is out there also. Let us know what you think when you get back.

You need a car if you want to visit some breweries in the area....in Dillon, Dillon Dam Brewery, Pug Ryans
Frisco, Backcountry Brewery

BUT, if stuck in Breck w no car...go to breck brewery and downstairs at erics:

I was here for a wedding this past summer but didn't have a ton of time to explore on my own. Dillon is problably 25 minutes from breckenridge so a good pitstop along the way... Never made it to the Backcountry Brewery but did goto Pug Ryans and the Dam Brewery... Both cool places and worthy of at least a stop on your way to and from the airport...

I'd second Eric's. Fun place with decent bar food, beer and a nice little arcade with a row of pinballs. There are actually a lot of bars and clubs in Breckenridge. I don't remember any having a really huge selection of beer, but you'll find a couple of good Colorado brewery taps at most of them.

I was there a year ago snowboarding but I forget everything I did lol.

THere's a place on the main street that sells crepes which are amazing. I'd check that out if I were you.

Its an amazing snow year - have fun! Breck Brewery is great, the one in Frisco is ok. Not sure what else is in driving distance for a meal. pick a brewery to hit on the way to or from the airport for sure.

Had their Quadruple Ale about a week ago. Great beer for a super limited short run.
