Brewery

“This is the original Breckenridge Brewery location and our number 1 go-to. Great for families and large groups; worth the wait for a table. Also, perfect to just go grab a beer before hitting the town. The bartenders and staff are awesome and are all long-time locals; take care of them!”

From 4-6 pm you can indulge in sophisticated small plates like wild caught red snapper or Colorado lamb meatballs. Choose from an extensive wine list for $6 or $8 dollar glasses. Their martinis are also one of a kind”

It's stood for over 140 years playing host to gunfights, outlasting Prohibition, and boasting the longest continuous liquor license west of the Mississippi.

Burger Joint

“Nothing says Colorado like a bison burger with green chile on it, and you can get exactly that at Empire Burger. Located on Main Street in one of those little mall things where they also sell those “Mountain Dude” t-shirts, Empire has a great selection of beer, burgers, and bar food. Super to easy to access via the Free Ride (bus)”
