Hidden in a calm corner of Littleton on 12 acres of a former carnation farm, Breckenridge Brewery offers tours of where the magic of its 100-barrel production happens, and much more.

The brewery

Begin your day with an almost 90-minute brewery tour. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a smiling beer aficionado and a generous pour. Next, you will be guided through the brew-house, fermentation and barrel aging alleys, and the packaging hall overlook. You’ll end the tour with additional sampling. Tours, which cost $3, may be pre-booked for Thursday through Monday at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m.

The grounds

With an on-site food truck and plenty of seating and games, the backyard beer garden calls for you to relax and unwind. Play giant Jenga and corn hole, or lounge around the fire pits while soaking in views of the Rockies and listening to live music on the outdoor stage.

The farmhouse

Just a few feet from the brewery doors is the Farmhouse—a warm and homey eatery. Ask the friendly staff for tips on how to best pair your meal with your beer. The open kitchen cranks out traditional, delicious American fare that makes the Farmhouse a great place to start or finish a day of brews and biking.

The bikery

Looking to be more active? Hike or bike the Mary Carter Greenway Trail along the Platte River, just west of the property. A former tiny house, this bike shop does it all, from repairs to rentals for the day.
