BRECKENRIDGE 471 SMALL BATCH DOUBLE IPA
471 is a small batch, limited edition ale that was created by our Brewmaster to separate the weak from the strong. 471 is a double IPA, that combines Pale, Munich, Caramel-30, Carapils and Torrified Wheat malts, with Chinook, Centennial, Simcoe and Fuggles hops. It has a big sweet mouthfeel, followed by more hoppiness than you’ve ever had at one time. Enjoy.

BRECKENRIDGE 471 DOUBLE IPA BARREL SERIES
471 IPA Barrel Series is a labor of love. We not only give our 471 Double IPA the luxury of time in whiskey barrels, we follow that stage with a dry hop treatment that features a new hop variety with each release. We’ve pampered it here, for you to enjoy. With this edition, Simcoe is the star. From bittering to finishing and dry hopping, Simcoe shines. Pine and citrus enhance the aroma and come through in the fresh hop flavor. The abundance of hops are balanced by sweet fullness of malt, lending flavors reminiscent of caramel. These characteristics linger on the palate with flavor from the barrel, warming the tongue until the next sip.

BRECKENRIDGE 72 IMPERIAL CHOCOLATE CREAM STOUT BARREL AGED
This unique release is a whiskey barrel-aged take on the brewery’s Small Batch 72 Imperial, an imperial chocolate cream stout. For every 100 bbl. batch, 400 lbs. of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory lustrous chocolate, made especially for 72 Imperial, are added to the brew. After spending a considerable amount of time in whiskey-soaked oak barrels, the finished product is molasses in color and smells of chocolate, wood, and whiskey harmoniously blended together. The beer has a dense and decadent mouthfeel and an abundance of rich flavors, including hints of sherry and dark fruit that compliment the toasted chocolate and oak notes remarkably.
