Backcountry Brewery has been going through a lot of changes in the past 8 months. We've added ten new 15-barrel fermenting tanks, a 30-barrel brite tank, a 6-pack bottling line, labeler and a new cooling system. These additions allow the brewery to more-than-double its production level and expand into the all-important 6-pack beer market.
The craft beer competition at the Colorado State Fair put Summit County's Backcountry Brewery on the map, with recognition for six beers during an awards ceremony Aug. 25.
Backcountry Brewery in Frisco submitted six beers for the competition, and all six were awarded medals, exceeding the expectations of the brewery's staff.
“This is an unprecedented achievement for the brewery,” said Charlie Eazor, owner of Backcountry. “We submitted six beers for judging and were recognized for all six — we are more than mildly ecstatic about this.”

Backcountry Brewery Hosts Charity Christmas Dinner
The owners, their families and key Backcountry staff combined efforts to provide free Christmas dinners to 267 guests during a private event at the Brewery/Restaurant on Christmas Day.
The guests were identified and invited by a dozen local charities and religious organizations. The goal was to provide Christmas Dinner to every Summit County resident not able to have one on their own.
