This is a really large brewpub conveniently located right at the end of Main Street. The interior is pretty sparse but the outdoor patio is where it’s at. Fantastic mountain views abound. The beer selection is pretty decent, you should have no problem finding something enjoyable. The coffee stout wasn’t too shabby and the pilsner is wonderfully clean and refreshing. There isn’t exactly an over abundance of beer geek destinations in Frisco, so this is certainly worth checking out. They have some six packs and limited release bottles available to go also. The food menu focuses on pizza with a few burgers, sandwiches, etc. I did not partake though.

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.

Pretty cool place in Frisco. Ski lodge feel with multiple rooms and outside seating. Friendly staff, good food, & decent beer. The mug-club membership is a smoking deal...if only I lived in CO, I’d take advantage of it.

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.

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.

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.

This is a great place to hang out after a day of skiing/boarding. It does the job but it didn’t 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 drinkin’ skitown pub.

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.

Large restaurant and brewpub that now contains a separate taproom on the ground level. Good service and a selection of 10 beers encompassing a wide range of styles. The overall quality of the beer is fairly average but with limited options in Summit County, it’s worth an occasional visit.

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.
