Since the 1980’s, Richard Squire’s love of skiing and love of making home brews have come a long way. Eventually he created the Breckenridge Brewery brand. Twenty-four years later, we’re enjoying the celebration of its creation to this day in the form of a hootenanny.
Taking place on Saturday, July 12th the Hootenanny celebration, is an all-inclusive street party at the Denver brewery – 471 Kalamath Street – which benefits local non-profit, Conscious Alliance. In addition to the annual pig roast, there will be two outdoor stages of live music, free brewery tours, and tastings of unique beers from Breckenridge Brewery’s pilot brewery and a rare beer cellar.
The street party takes place in front of the brewery on an entire block of Kalamath between Fourth and Fifth Avenues. Gates will open at 11:00 a.m., and music will ring between both stages until 7 p.m. This year’s all-Colorado music lineup features sets from Deadphish Orchestra, The Magic Beans, Kitchen Dwellers, Trout Steak Revival, The Colorado Goat Ropers Guild, and Marty Jones & The Great Unknowns.
Tickets are all-inclusive, with access to the full lineup of Breckenridge Brewery beers and a meal from the BBQ pig roast. Tickets are available for $15 for designated drivers and persons under 21 years of age, and include entrance to the Hootenanny and a meal from the pig roast. The brewery encourages public transit, taxis, walking, and biking. Bike racks will be available to lock up your ride.
