Brewery Description:

Frisco’s Backcountry Brewery and Restaurant was established in 1996 by a group of Frisco and Summit County residents with a desire to bring great brews and food to their community for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike. The beers were formulated to appeal to the outdoor and adventure oriented folks that chose Summit County for their winter and summer outdoor recreation and relaxation. The Backcountry Brewery and Restaurant were purchased by Eazor Brewing LLC in September of 2010. In the time since then the owners have begun the processes necessary to make the fine beers available to those that like to “create their own path” but do not visit Summit County. We expect to systematically expand our distrbution in a manner that achieve that goal without a compromise of the quality of what we truly believe to be among the finest craft beers available. Backcountry Brewery is the second oldest brewpub in Summit County. The Brewery and Restaurant opened on September16, 1996. Over our ensuing year history the Backcountry Brewery has established itself as a sanctuary for Summit County visitors and locals longing for great brews, great food and great views. We take great pride in offering diverse of ales lagers and American pub fare. Our range of annual and seasonal beers that have combined to win 6 Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals at the Great American Beer Festival, the nation’s premier beer competition as well as a Silver Medal in our first international competition held at the Colorado State Fair in 2011. – www.backcountrybrewery.com
