Multiple visits indicate a lot of possibility here. First and foremost, selection is great - excellent all the way through the enormous amount of taps, with no BMC to fill out volume (though I know a few bottles float around). Pliny the Younger, BB Angelís Share, Meph Addict, the Abyss, etc. Just a jaw-dropper. The kitchen was also excellent, from the pub grub to the pizza I had for lunch (Iíd def rec the Nediterranean). Sweet servers and a lot of beer geeks here, including brewers and reps I met in other hot spots in Boulder and along the whole FR. I really like the different rooms, has sort of a family/restaurant section in addition to the bar side and pool/games area. So whatís not to like about a premier gourmet experience? Well, the qualityís there, and youíre going to pay for it. Parking was easy, and though I know itíll probably be super busy here at times, I never had a problem finding a spot. Iíd be here every week were I local.

I like the comment below that this place is like Beer Geek Nirvana. Apt. This place has about the same selection as Falling Rock, with probably fewer taps but what seems like more bottled selections. i love the way they have beers organized on the menu, as it makes it easy to find what you like or to try something new. What differs about BCP compared to many other beer joints Iíve been in is the service. Of the three times Iíve been there, Iíve always had top shelf service. Impressively, the waiters and waitresses all seem to know something about almost every beer on the menu. Try getting that at a Flying Saucer! They rotate the taps pretty regularly to keep the selection fresh. Food is pretty good - not as good as Hops & Pie, but with a much larger selection to please all palates.

The new big brother to the original in Nederland, this place is exactly what Boulder needed - a premium tap house that appeals to beer geeks. Instantly the best tap house in Boulder. The staff is wonderful and loves to talk beer or tell of the rare kegs in the cellar (viewable through window) waiting to be tapped. Tap selection is unmatched, makes West End look like Old Chicago (not necessarily bad, but you get the idea). One of its best features is the game room, fully equipped with 8 or so old-school arcade/pinball machines and a brand new pool table. Food is awesome, including the pizza. Between the beer and the pool this place is hard to leave. You can drop 40 bucks here and feel as if you robbed the place. Was told they will later (soon) have bottles to buy and share. They will soon have four cask ales, two Averys and two of other kind. I drank meph addict, Anniversary Anderson Valley Double IPA, St. Fuillion Green Flash Collaboration, and much more all on tap at once. These guys and serious and have been collecting kegs for years. My new favorite hang-out. When bottles and casks are added I will update their selection probably to a perfect score. A ludicrous tap selection...

This place is like beer geek nirvana. They had 50 taps of craft beer and most of them were unusual and not commonly found in most pubs. In addition to some of the finer Colorado craft they also had 4-5 Russian River and 4-5 Mikkeller. They also had a large number of bottles including some bombers that had been aged. The pizza was solid but not spectacular but good value for money. Everyone there was very friendly and had a real passion for beer. I wish we had a place this awesome close to where I live.

A wide variety of beers with an almost strange assortment of bar food and fine dining, I thoroughly enjoyed the people and the selections.

Based strictly on the beer selection, this may be my all time favourite bar. 52 taps, the majority from Colorado. Half the taps were rotating and the selection changed a good bit from one week to the next during my two visits. The 182 bottle selection is great, which include numerous sour, lambic and wild ales from the US, as well as Belgium and other countries. As a Norwegian it was nice to see a Nogne Saison on tap for $8, half the price of at home. Unfortunately, several factors are pulling down the overall impression of rhe bar. If you take a right after walking in thru the main door, you have a game room, followed by a dining room full of pizza eating kids with their parents. This room can be avoided, but it still does not belong in a quality beer bar. The food was average.

One of the best beer selections in the area! Large number of Colorado and regional beers with more then enough out of state to keep it interesting! Taps rotate pretty regularly, and many of the beers are hard to find in Colorado. Service is good, and the pizza is solid! Great place to grab beer if your in Boulder!

Large restaurant with a large bar. Good tap list and extensive bottle list, including many rare beers. Draft prices are reasonable and bottle prices are expectedly steep. Service was alright.
