I'm going to be honest... I've been to this place twice. Never opened the food menu and I've never opened the beer menu. I know they have a good IPA. Otherwise, I've walked up the stairs to the bar, found a seat and asked the bartender what the seasonal/special release beers are. I've been happy with every offering. My previous visit I enjoyed a barleywine and Imperial Stout. On my most recent visit the Breakfast Stout was really tasty!
On both trips it wasn't busy but the service was been very good. I like the vibe of the place, rustic, lots of wood, great views of the lake and mountains. Backcountry fits the feel/look of Frisco very well and is a great stop.
One of these trips we need to skip Dillon and eat here. I would love to give write a more in-depth review but my stops have been in and out.
They do offer beer to go but no growlers per the bartender, party pigs an 22oz bottles of IPA and a couple others. Good prices.
If you are in the area, please stop. It is worth it!

Atmosphere - reminds me of a ski condo resort. nice and cozy inside with lots of space. doesn't remind me of a brewery. more focus on the food here.
Quality - nothing that really stood out for me here.
service - very good server
selection - lots of beers to choose from. again, nothing overwhelming.
food - sad that the food was my favorite part of the brewery
overall - good place. I enjoyed the DIPA and the Berlinerweiss quite a bit. I would go back if I was skiing.
