It seems we love our craft beer in Colorado and it appears these small breweries won’t be going away anytime soon. I read a 2016 report from the Denver Post that there are more than 350 breweries in the state who employ 7,776 people in 94 cities with industry sales at $882 million.
Breckenridge Brewery Kickin Chicken Sandwich With BBQ Sauce
Craft beer hit my radar early in the game, thanks to Breckenridge Brewery.
Breckenridge Brewery opened its doors in 1990 in the mountain town of Breckenridge, Colorado. It is the third-oldest craft brewery in the state. They then expanded to a location in Downtown Denver and then another south of Downtown on Kalamath Street.
This craft beer bbq joint was a favorite of ours and I always ordered their Kicken Chicken Sandwich.
Described on the menu as: described as: Hand-pulled light and dark chicken, layered with spicy sausage and drizzled with Oatmeal Stout Barbeque Sauce.
Post update April 2017: Since I wrote this post in 2009, a lot has changed with Breckenridge Brewery.
In the summer of 2015, a 12-acre stretch of land that was once a carnation farm became their new production home. Also, they’ve sold to Anheuser-Busch. Located on South Santa Fe, their new campus happens to be right in my back yard.
It’s a great place to visit, especially with out of town guests. You can tour the brewery, taste the beers, then have dinner in the adjacent Farmhouse restaurant.
Breckenridge Brewery Kickin Chicken Sandwich Recipe
This Kickin Chicken Sandwich was on the menu at their Kalamath location before it closed.. I haven’t seen this on their menu at the new location on Santa Fe.
The BBQ Sauce made with their Oatmeal Stout beer is a true treat. With molasses, mustard and chili sauce = yum. Add some Oatmeal Stout, bold, full-bodied that oozes dark coffee aroma for an unforgettable BBQ sauce.
