Breckenridge Twenty Barrel-aged Scotch Ale to be released Saturday

(Denver, CO) – On Saturday, April 2, Breckenridge Brewery of Colorado, LLC, will sell limited-edition 750ml bottles of its 20th Anniversary beer, “Twenty.”

Out now in draft, Twenty is a strong Scottish ale aged five months in Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey barrels. The brewery packaged a precious few 750ml bottles with cork and wire bale closures. Only 180 of these bottles will be sold, first come first serve, at 10:00 a.m. at the brewery’s tasting room at 471 Kalamath Street, Denver, Colorado. The first 20 folks in line will receive a free Breckenridge Brewery t-shirt and a pint glass. The second 20 in line will be given a pint glass as well. Donuts and coffee will be served at 9:00, and other prizes will be available. The bottles will sell for $20 each and will be limited to two per person.

Twenty is the brewery’s tribute to its 20th anniversary year. At 7.8% ABV (Alcohol by Volume), it boasts complex hoppiness balanced with traditional English Ale maltiness. Oak and vanilla notes are complemented with an American craft whiskey finish. Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, located just down the street from Breckenridge’s production brewery on Kalamath, provided barrels for conditioning of Twenty.

Breckenridge Brewery was founded in 1990 in Breckenridge, Colorado. In the past two decades Breckenridge Brewery has grown from a small 3,000-barrels-a-year brewpub to one of the most successful craft beer companies in the nation. It now handcrafts over 30,000 barrels of fresh beer annually and owns and operates 5 pubs in the state of Colorado.

      Their website says 11am… So, I’m guessing 10am just for the event.
