Stopped in while traveling on I-70. Big lodge appearance, spacious inside... I sat at the medium sized bar and sampled a couple of their beers. This is another place that is a restaurant #1, and the theme of that restaurant is "brewery"... the beer was decent enough, and I now see their bottles scattered around Colorado, so theyíre doing well. The location is nice... high ceilings, lots of things to look at, which I guess is good. They have growlers and bottles ready to go in a fridge. Parking can be a pain because it’s on the main street corner in Frisco and you have to park behind the brewery in the strip mall area. Worth stopping if you’re in town.

Our waiter would visit the table next to us and then walk out of his way to not visit our table. What an asshole thing to do. In fact, no one seemed to be getting good service. The pizza was very good. The beer is average with several varieties bottled and/or in party pigs.

Sep 06: After a couple failed attempts (too early, too ill) to visit in the past, I finally made it to Backcountry on a wonderfully sunny late summer afternoon. It was the "tweener" hour, so it was fairly empty ... but the servers were nice and friendly and were willing to talk beer ... of which they had plenty to pour and several to sell in 22 oz bombers to take back to the hotel. Didnít eat but the menu looked good. They surpassed Breckenridge Brewery on my Summit County Priority list (still behind Dillon Dam).

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.

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.

Nice location, average beer, decent food. Burger was good as was potato skins. Beer was ok with the hilight being the porter. Dont try & buy a t shirt because it will take an hour. not very busy but staff seems a bit misguided or preoccupied to inner staff flirting. Food did seem a bit overpriced but it is in the middle of ski season so no real big complaints here

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.

How can you go wrong with the location! Sat at a table at the window looking out at the snow capped mountains. I enjoyed my fish tacos and beans that seemed to be real nice and spicy. 7 beers on tap that where below average to average. You can buy bombers of thier beers here too.

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.

Very nice location in a very nice setting. Service was excellent and prices were very good. Nice selection of regulars and seasonals. Wish I would have had more time here. The beers I tried were well above average. Will return.
