Overview Breckenridge is one of a startling number of small breweries and brewpubs in Colorado reaching out into the craft beer world with bottled offerings. Originally from the ski town of the same name, they now own three pubs and a brewing facility in Denver.

Flavors and aromas Lucky U IPA perplexed our tasters. Pale malt and a hint of skunkiness (despite brown glass and a bottle direct from the brewery) stood out in the nose, along with earthy hops. A thin, mildly bitter palate finished short, with herbal hops and chalky, mineral flavors. Several tasters guessed that this was an English beer, but none were terribly interested in finding out whether they were right.
