Based strictly on the beer selection, this may be my all time favourite bar. 52 taps, the majority from Colorado. Half the taps were rotating and the selection changed a good bit from one week to the next during my two visits. The 182 bottle selection is great, which include numerous sour, lambic and wild ales from the US, as well as Belgium and other countries. As a Norwegian it was nice to see a Nogne Saison on tap for $8, half the price of at home. Unfortunately, several factors are pulling down the overall impression of rhe bar. If you take a right after walking in thru the main door, you have a game room, followed by a dining room full of pizza eating kids with their parents. This room can be avoided, but it still does not belong in a quality beer bar. The food was average.

I like the comment below that this place is like Beer Geek Nirvana. Apt.
This place has about the same selection as Falling Rock, with probably fewer taps but what seems like more bottled selections. i love the way they have beers organized on the menu, as it makes it easy to find what you like or to try something new.
What differs about BCP compared to many other beer joints Iíve been in is the service. Of the three times Iíve been there, Iíve always had top shelf service. Impressively, the waiters and waitresses all seem to know something about almost every beer on the menu. Try getting that at a Flying Saucer!
They rotate the taps pretty regularly to keep the selection fresh. Food is pretty good - not as good as Hops & Pie, but with a much larger selection to please all palates.

This place is like beer geek nirvana. They had 50 taps of craft beer and most of them were unusual and not commonly found in most pubs. In addition to some of the finer Colorado craft they also had 4-5 Russian River and 4-5 Mikkeller. They also had a large number of bottles including some bombers that had been aged. The pizza was solid but not spectacular but good value for money. Everyone there was very friendly and had a real passion for beer. I wish we had a place this awesome close to where I live.

Great pizza and excellent selection of beers on tap. My waitress was very rude and didnít visit our table between the time she took our order and the time she brought the bill. Iím sure this is the exception rather than the rule but Iíll see the next time Iím in there.
Shitters: have yet to visit

The pizza is just meh, unfortunately, and all the big screen TVs and lack of personality/soul (feels like a big chain) make the atmosphere one of "get me outta here!", but...yes, the beer selection is quite good. Nice selection of both bottles and draughts, so even a picky bastard like me can usually find something to be content with.

Love the original backcountry pizza in nederland, co. This place has 50 taps and most of them are rotating with the best beer you can find. the food is great, the pizza in ned is better though. stop in when in boulder you will always find 50 good to great beers.

Great selection of beers, sadly no Angels share while i was there. Abit on the pricy side, but not to bad

Dragged the fam here for lunch today - the ambience was an immediate strike for me - obnoxious bright yellow and blue paint of the exterior - interior is not sure if it wants to be a pub or a family restaurant, so it simply fails at being both - everything besides that was nice, though - staff was extremely friendly and attentive - beer selection was excellent, with a quality assortment of regular brews and an extensive rotating list, some of which is fairly hard to get - prices were on the high side, with 5 bucks being the cheapest you can get a pint - the pizza is fairly good, but IMO not worth the price - the beer selection is probably the only thing that would bring me back.
