We came after work with business associates. Ordered several appetizers and pizza. The pizza choices are different but very good. Large is truly large. Great bar selection for beer.

My husband and I are big fans of Belgian beer (from Belgium, not "Belgian style." Though their beer list changes frequently, we are always able to find some interesting beer to try here. The staff is knowledgeable and if you can give them an idea of the kind of beer you like, they are happy to make suggestions and will... More

Amazing beer list, especially for hard to find sours. Also great pizza and wings. We loved the hot chili wings especially.

Backcountry looks like it's been at this location for a long time. It's very authentic and down to earth with interesting decor. There's no glitz and glam. They have a huge selection of beers and very knowledgeable staff. Great selection of local and international beers.

Best in class food and beer. Ask a question and get an answer. I love their wings extra hot / crispy and a side arugula salad or slice of pepperoni w/ jalapeño. Mel is the best bartender in Boulder. Top shelf services...and if you are lucky you might even hear the owner John rant about something at the bar. I... More

We were there with relatives for Happy Hour drinks ($1. off) and appetizers (1/2 off). Among us we had 4 bourbons on the rocks. The bill showed the 4 bourbons at $4.50 each, which was the price she'd quoted us, followed by "4 Rocks @ $2.00 = $8.00". I asked the server and she claimed that the bartender has to... More

We sampled a few of the rare beer goodness the other night. Watched sports and talked beets with a couple nice guys that are beer appreciators and we had a nice time. The smelt really good too.

I am really bummed to have to write this review, because I think this place could be so great if they did not treat my friends and I so badly. We called ahead to see if they had space for 3 people to watch the Broncos game. It was already the 3rd quarter of the game and they are having... More

The beer is great and rotates quite a bit. Pizza is pretty good. Other menu items are worth trying. The hostess stand just doesn't grasp what their doing and it's been that way for numerous visits! Wait staff and beer tenders are awesome. You should try it!

We visited Backcountry Pizza while entertaining family from out of town. We were a group of 9 and order several large pizzas in addition to appetizers and a variety of different drinks. Service was attentive and the food was delicious! Definitely a hit!
