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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A fairly large place and apres ski chic. Eight beers on tap. Some just okay and a few quite good. They have a fairly long list of beers, so they must rotate fairly often. Worth a visit.

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.

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.

The Google Proximity Map is slightly wrong, location is SW corner of Main St & Hwy 9.
I arrived shortly before 9:00 PM on a Wednesday in August, was told the kitchen had just closed. The bartender shared a bit of the pizza roll he was having for dinner, it tasted pretty good.
I managed to down pints of their Telemark IPA and Peak One Porter before the bar closed. Both were true-to-style and well-executed, though not extraordinary. The beer menu listed six beers on tap, but I saw ten tap handles - maybe they serve other beer also.
The building is modern, decor typical for Colorado ski country, dining room was larger than I expected.
Be advised the entire establishment is one floor above ground level. I think there was an elevator, but I took the stairs.
Donít arrive late during off-season! I think I missed out on having a better time.

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.
