Best Pie we had in Boulder! Great selection of brews too, only brewery were I could actually find ciders too. Impressed that I could have as many tasters as I wanted as long as they were under $9 a glass. The servers were extremely knowledgable, not just throwing out names. I'm totally micro brew dumb, I really learned a lot... More

It was late and everyone was tired. We appreciated getting some food, beer, and very nice service. The pizza is heavy with cheese, nice but soft crust, not much tomato sauce, and adequate toppings (though lacking all that we ordered). Excellent array of beers on tap, as required for any pub in Boulder.

Amazing beer selection on tap and the staff is well versed on their attributes. Food is very good as well. Locals seem to love the place for lunch.

Went for happy hour after flag football game. No hostess. Horrible fried apps. I know they have good pizza so why can't they offer the kids a deal? Food inedible. Bartender didn't know anything except that the serve beer.

HUGE amazing pizza. Large pizza was more than enough for three people. Friendly people, cute inside atmosphere and small outdoor patio. Best crust and sauce ever. Great beer list- lots of sours and ciders too. AMAZING!!!

First timer to Backcountry Pizza. First, the beer list is amazing, something for everyone. We tried the jerky appetizer, roasted garlic and sweet hot , and it literally melts in your mouth. I would have been satisfied to eat jerky for my meal...i couldn't get enough. We ordered the Nedetteraian speciality pizza where Greece meets Nederland. Im not sure what... More

There were about 50 draft beers on tap! The atmosphere was casual and the waitstaff were friendly. We went with the grandchildren and everybody had a good meal. We liked that you could build your own pizza toppings.

Went there for lunch, and can't say I enjoyed it. The service was poor (very slow, no soda refills offered until AFTER we'd already finished eating, plus a member of our party never got the mustard he asked for). I got the calzone, which wasn't very good, but the other two people got hamburgers, and thought they were OK. The... More
