Burning Man, Beer, and Breckenridge

| | ,

Jason Ford is not just the owner of Broken Compass Brewing Company in Breckenridge, Colorado, he is an icon in the Colorado craft beer scene. His passion for life and commitment to community are infectious. 

An avid cyclist, mountain lover, brewer, and builder of the Man at Burning Man, this guy’s got life figured out. If you‘ve never been to Breckenridge, this quaint (albeit busy) little mountain town has held a place in our hearts for many years. The ski resort, the people, the mountain vistas, the fall leaves, the hiking and mountain biking trails, and the breweries here – you get the picture.

If we hadn’t moved into our RV, this is where we would have lived. In fact, we might just park our RV here forever. 

We hope you catch the passion bug from Ford like we did. In fact both he and Kenny were so excited to be chatting about Burning Man, the mountains, and beer, that neither of them could stop pounding the table. Anyhow, Ford will get you stoked for community while encouraging you to live the life you love. So while you may not be able to move to Breckenridge right now or head off to Burning Man yet, you can definitely start planning.

Oh the places we went!
