Littleton, CO – Breckenridge Brewery has released a specialty series that captures the essence of its new 12-acre expanse in Colorado. The farm-inspired spread along Brewery Lane in Littleton was built to allow the brewery to double its capacity out of the gate and offers room to grow nearly five times what was possible in its former location. That additional capacity has enabled the brewery to release many new recipes and launch several series this past year.
Todd Usry, Brewmaster and President of Breckenridge Brewery, explains, “We’d bumped up against a capacity wall at our former location, and during the years our new brewery was under construction, we had to limit production of small batch, specialty brews. That’s not the case anymore. Brewery Lane Series is a celebration of renewed innovation. You’ll find this series is all about bigger, bolder, more adventurous beers.”
The first release in the Brewery Lane Series, announced today, is Imperial White IPA. Belgian yeast presents aromas of honey, clove, and banana. Citra and Amarillo hops impart pleasant hop flavor and add aromas of tropical fruit and pine. Subtle wheat flavor is in harmony with lemongrass, which adds a hint of citrus. “This Imperial White IPA is strong, flavorful, and well-balanced. It meets our standard for the Brewery Lane Series label,” says Usry. The series is packaged in 750 ml cork and cage bottles and will be found in specialty stores where Breckenridge beer is sold. Imperial White IPA will be available for several months until the next series release.
“Brewery Lane Series is more than just great recipes,” shares Todd Thibault, the brewery’s Culture Czar. “We want to bring people to our brewery to experience what we’re all about – literally and figuratively. Those able to come visit will find a place where you can relax, enjoy a really nice meal in our Farm House or a beer with friends in our beer garden. Take a tour with a guided tasting. We just want to share it all. Brewery Lane Series is our attempt to bottle what we’ve got here. For those unable to visit us, we’re bringing a bit of our new brewery to you in these beers.”
