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.

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.

Decent brewpub just outside Breckenridge in Frisco. Plenty of food and beer choices, but nothing really stood out as being that good; granted nothing was terrible either. Variety of styles on tap and there were good happy hour prices which work nicely after a full 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.

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.
