Our History

The Backcountry Brewery

The Backcountry Brewery and Restaurant was established in 1996 by a group of local residents with a desire to bring great beer and food to their community for the enjoyment of locals and visitors. The beers are formulated to appeal to the outdoor and adventure-oriented folks that choose Summit County for their recreation and relaxation. We take great pride in offering a diverse array of ales, lagers and American pub fare. Our beers have won 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. In 2012, Backcountry Brewery entered 6 beers in the Colorado State Fair and each one took home a medal!

Under new the ownership of Eazor Brewing LLC since September of 2010, The Backcountry Brewery and Restaurant has begun to expand the brewery and also distribution of beer throughout Colorado. We will be doing this while maintaining the high standards of product quality that you have come to expect.

Enjoy!
