Notes

Visited: October 19, 1994

Opened: 1992

Annual Production: 16,000 bbl

Now that Breckenridge has their big new microbrewery on Kalamath Street, they don't do any more brewing at this location. It's still worth a visit, though; the pub is still open, directly across Blake Street from the east side of Coors Field.

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Very nice amber. Good carbonation. Diacetyl and brown malt aromas. Good body, but diacetyl detracts.

      Place: Willman's Bottle Market, Grand Island NE
      Score: 15½ points
      Overall Impression (3)
      Amber, fairly high carbonation, OK head. Caramelly, slightly spicy aroma. Chewy, malty, hint of chocolate. Pretty well-balanced. "Best when enjoyed by 3/21/96."

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Nice amber color, white creamy head. Crystal clear. Alcohol aroma, with fresh spicy hops. Good body and balance. Bitterness OK and fades fast. A little sweet. Mike's favorite. This tastes like a very strong beer, alcohol-wise.

  • English-Style Brown Ale

      Light brown, flat. Subtle brown malt aroma. Smooth and clean. Some astringency. Maybe not sweet enough.

  • American-Style India Pale Ale

      Amber, but much more pale than the Avalanche. Clear, good head. More spicy hop aroma. Very smooth. Lots of hops, but very well-balanced. Bitter but clean. Good beer!
