Backcountry Pizza & Tap House2
Why locals love it
Boulder loves beer, and there are plenty of brewpubs in the area that pour a superb slate of their own suds. However, if your aim is to gain some understanding of the full scope of Coloradan and American beer culture by sampling the products of multiple microbreweries in one sitting, Backcountry is the place to go.
Why you should visit it
Boasting the city's largest number of microbrews on draft, the tap house and restaurant are comfortably casual with helpful staff that tend to know the brews well. Barsnacks are simple (pizza, fried finger foods, etc.) but well made, affordable and tasty. TV's are present if you'd like to watch a game, but won't overpower your conversation.
Happy hour every day from 2-5pm offers appetizers at half price and $1 off all drafts. Visit their website for a calendar of special events.
