Disagree with Virginia. There's better. Like Star Hill better personally. Midnight Brewery, Hardwood, Legend are also good

They did the same thing with Delaware and Dogfish Head. I don't know what the alternative would be frankly but they are definitely overrated.

  I don't think Breckenridge is even a top ten brewery in CO.       IMO, in no particular order top ten breweries in colorado would be TRVE, ODell, Parodox, New Belgium, Funk Werks, Crooked Stave, Oskar Blues, Avery, Ska, and Strange
