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!

Cool brewpub. Nice view of the mountains! Service was very good. Bison burger was great. Had the porter, imp saison and breakfast stout. All very solid beers. The breakfast stout is the one of the most outstanding low abv stouts I've tasted. Brewers A.J. and Owen were great, enjoyed doing a bottle share with them.

May an off day service was a bit slow. Beer slection is mostly standard fair. Nothing really stretching boundary.

I really like this place especially for happy hour!! Happy hour is 6 days a week from 3-6 and they have killer deals. There were 3 of us and our bill was $45 and we had many beers and 3 appetizers. Solid beers, I really enjoyed the DIPA, Breakfast Stout and Amber this trip. Food was very good too. The service was good, especially considering how busy they were. We camped about 5 minutes from the brewery next to the lake. Easily my favorite brewery right off the I70.

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.
