Breckenridge stumbles down the mountain of brewpubs

On our visits, the big copper tanks were merely decorative--we weren't able to sample fresh beer made by Breckenridge because the suds aren't ready yet. Not even the root beer. They're still trucking it in from Colorado. This is the fourth store this brewing concern has opened, and I suppose their experience has proven that people will come to Breckenridge just to eat, but my experience at the Dallas store would lead me to question why.

Of the beers we tried, we liked the Avalanche Ale the best. The Oatmeal Stout was good, too, but I found it too heavy to drink with food. Best of all was something called a "George Foreman"--one part Oatmeal Stout mixed with three parts India Pale Ale. I'll go back to sample the beer again when it's being made fresh on the premises. I'm sure it will taste great with those tobacco onions.
