Our Story

Après Handcrafted Libations is a craft tasting room that brings the best in craft libations to Summit County. As a family owned and operated establishment we pride ourselves on emphasizing local and supporting other small businesses. Our award-winning handcrafted cocktails are made from scratch using the finest craft spirits, house-made syrups, hand squeezed (…mostly) juices and of course our very own Après Handcrafted Bitters. Our craft whiskey and small-batch whiskey selection is extensive, come see for yourself and don’t hesitate to ask our talented Après Family to tell you all about it! The Summit Daily says we have one of the hottest tap lists in town so if you are looking for a craft beer in Breckenridge come check out our 28 rotating beers or our 40+ rotating craft bottled/canned beers. Not a drinker? We have handcrafted libations for you as well! 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. Don’t want to wait for delivery? Feel free to bring food from home or any restaurant to enjoy with your favorite craft beverage in a relaxed, inviting, and family friendly (before 9pm) atmosphere. 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 different local Colorado non-profit organization. In August, we're featuring the Summit County Safe Passages and Oasis Brewing Company! 

Summit County Safe Passages: works to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions and improve landscape connectivity for wildlife along Summit County’s roadways. Summit County is unrivaled in its beauty and outstanding outdoor recreation opportunities, which has caused both the local populations and visitations to skyrocket. With more and more people enjoying the same landscape that wildlife call home, we’ve seen an increase in dangerous, busy roads dividing their habitats as well as wildlife-vehicle collisions. Summit County Safe Passages is working to make specific recommendations for wildlife crossing structures and other conservation opportunities by researching the balance of wildlife needs with the ever-growing human population. Reconnecting the landscape with wildlife crossing structures will not only bring healthier wildlife populations, which provide many ecological, social and economic benefits to Summit County, but will make our roads much safer for motorists as well. But they can’t do it alone! Support from community members and visitors like you are what will make this vision a reality. Raise your glass today in support of protecting and restoring connectivity for wildlife, while improving motorist safety, in Summit County!

Oasis Brewing Company, LLC: first came on the scene in 1991, making it one the first breweries in Colorado. The original brewery opened in Boulder where it enjoyed a very popular and awarding winning success. Having closed in 2002, it wasn’t until 2014 that the idea to bring it back was born. After researching the market and locating the perfect location, Oasis Brewery re-opened in the late Spring of 2018 to great reviews and accolades in the Denver Highlands. Please enjoy our great tasting brews here at the brewery or at any of the select locations where it is being served on tap. Cheers!
