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.

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.

Stopped for lunch here on my walk to Avery ( be warned if you do like me and walk, it is a few blocks down the street )
Good food, had a nice pizza, very nice helpfull and knowable sevice, wich pointed me to a few nearby breweries i could visit.
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.

Multiple visits indicate a lot of possibility here. First and foremost, selection is great - excellent all the way through the enormous amount of taps, with no BMC to fill out volume (though I know a few bottles float around). Pliny the Younger, BB Angelís Share, Meph Addict, the Abyss, etc. Just a jaw-dropper. The kitchen was also excellent, from the pub grub to the pizza I had for lunch (Iíd def rec the Nediterranean). Sweet servers and a lot of beer geeks here, including brewers and reps I met in other hot spots in Boulder and along the whole FR. I really like the different rooms, has sort of a family/restaurant section in addition to the bar side and pool/games area. So whatís not to like about a premier gourmet experience? Well, the qualityís there, and youíre going to pay for it. Parking was easy, and though I know itíll probably be super busy here at times, I never had a problem finding a spot. Iíd be here every week were I local.

A wide variety of beers with an almost strange assortment of bar food and fine dining, I thoroughly enjoyed the people and the selections.

The new big brother to the original in Nederland, this place is exactly what Boulder needed - a premium tap house that appeals to beer geeks. Instantly the best tap house in Boulder. The staff is wonderful and loves to talk beer or tell of the rare kegs in the cellar (viewable through window) waiting to be tapped. Tap selection is unmatched, makes West End look like Old Chicago (not necessarily bad, but you get the idea). One of its best features is the game room, fully equipped with 8 or so old-school arcade/pinball machines and a brand new pool table. Food is awesome, including the pizza. Between the beer and the pool this place is hard to leave. You can drop 40 bucks here and feel as if you robbed the place. Was told they will later (soon) have bottles to buy and share. They will soon have four cask ales, two Averys and two of other kind. I drank meph addict, Anniversary Anderson Valley Double IPA, St. Fuillion Green Flash Collaboration, and much more all on tap at once. These guys and serious and have been collecting kegs for years. My new favorite hang-out. When bottles and casks are added I will update their selection probably to a perfect score. A ludicrous tap selection...
