Leftover Salmon is teaming up with Breckenridge Brewery for a unique mix of music and microbrews. Starting this July and running through October, the Boulder-based pioneers of the jam grass scene will pre-release four brand-new singles exclusively through Breckenridge Brewery’s specially marked 12-pack Sampler Packs.
“These new Leftover Salmon songs are inspired by Breckenridge Brewery’s Fine Colorado Ales, the Colorado lifestyle, and the beauty that Colorado has to offer,” said Breckenridge Brewery’s Marketing Director Todd Thibault in a recent press release.
The 12-pack Sampler Packs will have a download code on four collector’s item Artist Series coasters included in the pack, with each coaster specifically made by four well-known artists from the “rock art” community. Taking their inspiration from Leftover Salmon’s music and Breckenridge Brewery’s beer, Gary Houston, Jeff Wood, Nate Duval and Tyler Stout created unique collector coasters that represent two of Colorado’s greatest pastimes; music and beer. Each artist will also print a limited run of 100 screen print posters, available through select giveaways.
Each download code also enters one into the chance to win prizes. Grand prize is a VIP experience at Leftover Salmon’s Thanksgiving shows, with a behind-the-scenes Breckenridge Brewery tour and a band meet-and-greet. Other prizes include a band-autographed acoustic guitar made by Andrew White Guitars, a set of four Artist Series coaster posters, framed and signed by the band; and much more.

Leftover Salmon has been a staple in the Boulder music community since their inception in 1989. Revolutionizing the bluegrass scene, they were at the forefront of mixing bluegrass with jam band stylings. After a brief hiatus in 2005, Leftover Salmon returned with Aquatic Hitchhiker in 2012, their first release since 2004. The first new song to be released in the Sampler Pack this July is titled “High Country,” and was recorded in March 2013 at Mighty Fine Productions in Denver.
