Backcountry Brewery, Colorado
There's something special about tasting craft beers while looking out at beautiful mountain vistas. That is part of what you get at the Backcountry Brewery in Frisco, Colorado. http://backcountrybrewery.com/.
The place is located upstairs in small strip of stores, with pretty views of mountains out all windows. The restaurant and bar take up the top floor and it appears that the brewery takes up some of the first floor. The decor is wood and stone, with an emphasis on comfort. We choose to lounge on sofas while we sampled beers and enjoyed appetizers.

Tasters and appetizers.
The beers were very good and included some interesting varieties (like the barleywine). The service was a little slow and spotty, but friendly once they showed up. The appetizers were satisfying and what you would expect from a brewpub. The restaurant menu looked good, but we were full from the appetizers. This is a brewpub where one could easily spend an enjoyable evening.
They also sell their beers in bottles. Definitely worth purchasing.
