Hyder Construction Breaks Ground on the New Breckenridge Brewery
June 12, 2014
Hyder Construction has broken ground Breckenridge Brewery’s new Littleton location. The new campus sits along the South Platte River and has a $17 million construction budget.
Breckenridge experienced a lot of growth in the last few years, with demand exceeding supply. The 12-acre campus consists of three buildings and provides the much-needed space for Colorado’s fifth largest brewer:
- Brewhouse: A 21,000 square foot building where the beer is brewed. The building also houses the brewery's corporate and operations offices.
- Production Building: A 50,000 square foot building home to the fermentation tanks, packaging, bottling, canning, and dry and cold storage.
- The Farmhouse: A 9,200 square foot restaurant that captures the farm theme of the site with its timber frame and array of reclaimed materials. A beer garden, complete with Bocce Ball courts and future events stage for outdoor concerts, is planned as well.
The project, designed by Coburn Development, also includes highly detailed coordination for the design, fabrication, and installation of the brewery and packaging systems supplied by Breckenridge Brewery. The process equipment is engineered and manufactured by Krones Steinecker of Germany. Once fabricated, the brewery and packaging equipment is shipped to the site in approximately 40 shipping containers, which arrive ready for installation.
Once complete in spring 2015, the brewery will produce approximately 90,000 barrels of beer a year with intended production to reach 300,000 barrels a year within 3 to 5 years.
