Breckenridge Brewery to bottle Lucky U IPA

Breckenridge Brewery Lucky IPAIf you've been fortunate enough to attend some of Colorado's beer festivals during June and July you may have had the chance to sample one of Breckenridge Brewery's latest year round offerings. Up to now, this beer has only been available in kegs at select establishments and beer festivals. But starting in October, you'll be able to buy this beer in 6-packs at local stores. In October, Breckenridge Brewery will release their Lucky U IPA in bottles.

Lucky U IPA originally debuted on June 19th at a tapping party in Scottsdale, AZ (of all places) and since then has been making appearances at such beer festivals as the Colorado Brewers' Festival in Fort Collins in June and at the Colorado Brewers Rendezvous in July. It has been on tap at the brewery for well over the last month.

This brew is medium golden in color and weighs in at 6.2% ABV and has around 68 IBU's. Breckenridge Brewery put in 7 different hops into this India Pale Ale and has been getting good reviews from customers.

This beer is also a fund raising product. Breckenridge Brewery will donate 5% of all the proceeds from the sale of this beer to help restore and preserve the old Tivoli Brewery building in Denver. So drink up with a grin knowing you'll be helping to preserve a part of Denver's history with this brew.
