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 local Colorado non-profit organization. This month, we're featuring the Friends of the Summit County Library and 4 Noses Brewing.


The Summit County Library serves the residents and visitors of Summit County with three locations in Frisco, Silverthorne and Breckenridge offering a variety of materials, including books, magazines, newspapers, CD books, DVDs, a large-print collection, books in Spanish, eBooks, eAudiobooks and digital magazines. 

The money raised from the Giving Tap will go directly to the Friends of the Summit County Library. The group was founded in 1960, and is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and supplementing the work of the Summit County Library. Comprised of local volunteers, the Friends seek to increase public awareness and use of the library by providing financial support for special items for the collection—such as Spanish titles—and library programs for all ages. These programs include children’s events and Summer Reading Program, author talks and signings, contests, the popular Travel Slideshow series, teen programming, and more. The Friends exist to help the library better serve our Summit County community through creating new opportunities for locals to learn, explore, and discover at their library. Your support means more library programs, a more diverse collection, and a library better able to meet local needs.
