“There’s plenty of money out there. They print more every day. But this ticket, there’s only five of them in the whole world, and that’s all there’s ever going to be.”
Grandpa George said in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
There were only five golden tickets offered to visit Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, but the good news for Denver area residents is that fifty lucky golden tickets were awarded for the first official Breckenridge Brewery public tour.
The lucky fifty, plus one guest each, will enjoy an exclusive VIP tour, partake in the first public tapping of beer in the brand new tasting room, and receive goodie bags packed with brewery-related gifts.
The winners will be the first members of the public to see the new, $36 million brewery, set on a farm-like setting. The new brewery, at 6775 South Santa Fe Drive, is expected to draw beer drinkers from all over the metro area as well as out-of-state “craft beer tourists” who will see Breckenridge as a destination.
The Brewery’s new 12 acre campus includes the Farm House restaurant (which opened in May), the brewery itself, a tasting room, and stages for live music. The brewery design is a unique hybrid of European brewery and Colorado ranch influences.
Breckenridge, after its founding 25 years ago, has operated its primary production facility out of its headquarters at 471Kalamath Street in Denver for most of that time. Two years ago, they announced the move. The big grand opening and exclusive day for the lucky fifty golden ticket holders will be June 20.
Todd Thibault, Breckenridge Brewery Culture Czar, says,
“Being first at anything is great. We hope our Golden Tickets gives fifty people something to brag about, but most importantly, we just want to treat some folks to a really, really special experience.”
