Baker's Breckenridge Brewery will feel the immediate effect of a legislative maneuver, and won't be able to build a new brewery within Colorado; as the Denver Business Journal reports, the state legislature has quashed a bill that would have allowed brewpubs to brew more than 60,000 barrels per year

apparently some of Colorado's craft brewers and large breweries feel that brewpubs, as an exception to the post-Prohibition three tier system, have an unfair advantage and must be limited in size; Breckenridge Brewery is the brewpub in Colorado that is closest to the 60,000-barrel limit
