Now "Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place" but still brewing. Hippyish yet cool, eight of their own beers on ranging from OK to pretty good. Take-aways too.

Stop #2 with Mike on the Boulder brewpub tour. This place gave off sort of an interesting vibe. Canít quite describe it. Sat at the bar, but there seemed to be a back area to the brewpub as well as some bar seating in the front. Ordered a set of all of their beers, which were very hit or miss. A beer or two that was decent and a bunch of duds, the gluten free beer being the worst. The service was alright, but seemed sort of disinterested. Probably wouldnít return.

Visited November 2012.
So currently this is Shine. On Ratebeer there was another location in the same address marked as still open. Upon searching online for this place I found at least four places with the same address that have presumably gone under or sold out. Shine, Redfish, Colorado Brewing, Boulder Draft House, which is it? Kind of a weird set up. I sat up front at the bar but walked around the building to see the different rooms including the large room with the really loud music playing and a couple of people dancing. Had a long conversation with the bartender about beer and he ended up pouring a couple of free tastes. I enjoyed myself here but the beer does need some work. Actually, the IPA was nice.

Second try. First one during a busy time at the community table resulted in ridiculously poor and nonexistent service. This time around was during a less busy time and received good experience from a friendly waiter. Half the beers were good and half were incredibly poor. Food was good but expensive and in small amounts.

same layout as the now-extinct Drafthouse and Los Oasis, and apparently they retained the same brewer from those two operations as well. happy hour plates were decent; they specialize in gluten-free foods and I was happy enough that the menu didnít appear to be too unconventional. 5-6 beers on tap: Imperial Red, IPA, Pale Ale, Czech-style Pils, Imperial Stout (8.5%) and Gluten-Free, all of average quality.
