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.

Not too bad of a place, if your in the Frisco area, itís worth a stop. I went in to try the sampler, but wasnít too blown away. The breakfast stout was good but everything else they had was sort of average.

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.

Iíve been here twice, and would recommend it if you are in the area. Nice looking place with an excellent location in Frisco. Very pleasant atmosphere with an attentive and pleasant staff. The wait person that we had on each occasion had a reasonably good knowledge of the beer, and if they didnít know the answer to a question, they said so. I appreciate the honesty as opposed to some made up response. Food was good on both occasions, but perhaps a little on the pricey side for pub style food. In the context of a ski resort area, I think this is to be expected. Bombers of several of their beers are available at reasonable prices.

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
