Location: Denver, Colorado
Year Established: 1990
When it opened in 1990, Breckenridge was only the third craft brewery operating in Colorado-in the shadow of Coors. Since then, many breweries have followed in their footsteps. But that hasn't slowed down the Denver brewery (named for the founder's favorite ski destination). Just this year, they created the official beer of Denver Comic Con, a limited-edition Belgian-style Witbier called "The Caped Brewsador."
