Nice place, easy to find with easy parking.
Friendly staff that was knowledgeable about the beer selections. Samples were offered as needed. I had a pint of a Oktoberfest and a brown ale. Both were very good, solid examples of the style. Brewed on-site too.
Had a pizza for lunch, which was very good, fresh ingredients, and a wonderful crust. Size was great, no skimping here.
Will definitely return again when in town.

Cool mountain brewpub. Big restaurant with good food. Beer has been consistently pretty good. I love the atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit after a day of skiing.

A cool little brewpub in Frisco. The beer is really mediocre, but its not bad for a little mountain town pub. The food was great and the service was excellent, probably some of the best service I have had anywhere. The flight deal is awesome; seven seven ounce tasters for $14. Also, during happy hour pints are only $2.50. Probably the best stop in Frisco for craft beer.

Visited in Sept of 2009. Neat place - only stayed in Frisco for one night (SnowShoe Motel) but really enjoyed it - had several beers at Backcountry.

This is a great place to hang out after a day of skiing/boarding. It does the job but it didnít really jump out at me. The selection was pretty typical but the breakfast Stout did stand out. I would have to visit again to give a more thorough review but my initial review is a decent drinkiní skitown pub.

Visited later in the evening on a Wednesday with the family. This is a very large, spacious second floor space that you access via stair on the backside (from Main) entrance. We were a bit slow to be seated, but after that service was decent. Everyone seemed a little worn out after the 4th weekend, and I can relate. I just had the Nachos (which were good) and a couple of beers (which were both solid). The selection was all of their regulars + two specials. The Saison they had on was a bigger ABV version, and well executed. Overall, a good experience - plenty of room for families or groups to spread out. I learned later in the week that the folks that own Blue Spruce in town bought Backcountry sometime in 2010, and I couldnít be more excited. Blue Spruce is easily my favorite restaurant in Summit Country - whether fancy up front or laid back in the bar. I expect good things to come here.

This place is worth a stop on your way to / from breckenridge. Ambiance was kind of weird on the inside - the place is huge so even though there are a decent amount of people there it feels empty, and the server felt rushed and awkard. However, I could see how the deck would have a great view in the summer. Also, she knew nothing about beer. The beers I tried were decent, nothing to write home about, but upon bringing home some cheap ($3.75) bombers of fresh beer my opinion of the place got better. No big beers available when I went, all the selection was sessionable, but I was happy with a couple of the offerings. Food menu very lacking, only pizza, nachos, burgers available. The pizza was decent I suppose, nachos not so great. Overall not a bad value, certainly when compared to breckenridge brewery / breckenridge in general. Overall it is worth visiting to grab some fresh bombers and try some new beer, maybe staying and eating there not so much.

I really love stopping by here and tasting their beers. Some are average but quite a few are above average to good. The atmosphere is pretty cool. Definitely worth a stop.

Great view if you sit on the balcony. The locals are always great for conversation at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and had a keen interest in beers from all over the country.

Big place right off the highway. Pretty nice inside. Just sat at the bar and had beer. Bartender was ok, but didnít seem too into beer, kind of recited the descriptions from the menu. Beer was alright overall, the IPA was really fresh and good. Enjoyed my visit.
