After skiing the usual spot to stop has always been Breck Brewery. I am a fan of some of their seasonal brews but overall not very impressed with their beers. A twenty minute wait at Breck sent me down the street to Backcountry. I wasn’t expecting much. The atmosphere is laid back, not as crowded as Breck and alot cooler than DAM. Lodge atmosphere, high ceilings, two nice pool tables, fireplace and the all essential Ms. PacMan. The IPA was well crafted with a great aroma. The porter was a nice drink. I’d say its the best all around brewery in the area. I give it a 15 for that reason. Check it out.

Was here in the evening after a wrap up of a conference I had in Keystone. Quaint little brewpub with pretty good selection of beers, good selection of carry out bottles (650ml) and above average pizza. Tried several of there standard on tap beers + 1 seasonal.

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 they’re 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.

A while ago, but I remember Backcountry being a VERY cool place. Big and open with lots of wood throughout. I also remember a blackberry porter that was quite good.
