We carry various Colorado craft sodas, we always have fresh non-alcoholic craft ginger beer on tap, plus we make an array of soda flavors using our Après Handcrafted Bitters!

We carry small snacks but we are unique to Breckenridge in that we allow you to order food from any of your favorite Breckenridge locations just like you would in your own home.

We have snacks, games, music and of course an ever-changing variety of craft libations! We are located in the historic Whitehead House Hotel & Boardinghouse. Built around 1892 by Harry and Jennie Whitehead as the Arcade Hotel, which didn’t last long. In 1902 Jennie reopened the space as a boardinghouse and restaurant. Since then it has mainly remained a restaurant space, with the tradition continuing as Après Handcrafted Libations.

Join us all month long for our Giving Tap! We will be donating 10% of the proceeds from one tap line every month to a local Colorado non-profit organization. This month, we're featuring Domus Pacis Family Respite and 4 Noses Brewing.


Founded in 2008, Domus Pacis Family Respite is a non-profit organization which encourages cancer patients, their families and friends to escape to the beauty of the mountains and experience the peace that comes from creating joyful memories for the people they cherish most. Domus Pacis is Latin for House of Peace and that is the experience the organization strives to provide. DPFR provides each family with a truly customized respite, depending on their individual needs and circumstances, whether it is a family taking a break from the day to day struggles of a family member with cancer, to an end of life gathering, or even a retreat for the family of a loved one who has passed from cancer. Just as crucial, DPFR gives the community an opportunity to share their time, talents and compassion in very personal way. Everyone can participate and contribute something of themselves...making baked goods for the welcome baskets, cooking meals (so the caregivers have a break from meal planning and preparations), businesses can share products and services and property owners can donate those vacant, non-income earning rental weeks to a greater to family. With just a small staff and a cadre of donors and volunteers, Domus Pacis Family Respite is committed to bringing patients and their families together when most needed. Since it's inception, the Domus Pacis Community of supporters have provided respite to over 1,000 families.
