Nicol Winkler (AKA The Thirsty German and Turk were front and center to celebrate 24 years of Breckenridge Brewery! They closed off Kalamath between 4th and 5th in what will be the last anniversary bash at their current location. This was an amazing event with a pig roast, 6 bands, great people and of course, tasty suds. Every band rocked the stages hard and got us all dancing! It was our first time seeing the Magic Beans who were unbelievable. They did a bluegrass rendition of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Tuesday’s Gone!!! During the show we had many a guests including Todd Thibault, Todd Usry and Matt Eldridge from Breck. They gave us the lowdown on 24 years and the plans moving forward into their new brewery on South Santa Fe. We also talked to Brian Bjork from Odell Brewing and Julia Wellington from Copper Kettle about their fundraising event A Night to Remember. Dan Rabin came on to talk about his new book Colorado Breweries.  We even let Gary V on the show with his partner in crime Katie Nierling who also reps for Fort Collins Brewery. This was such a fun day that will never be repicated. Thanks to the breck crew (especially Sarah, Tebo, Usry and Matt), and all the supporters of this trend setting brewery for making this happen.
