Took a tour on a Thursday afternoon. We arrived for the 2 PM tour a little early and sat in their really nice beer garden. Before the tour started, they offered us a free pint to take on the tour with us. The tour was very detailed (in a good way) and the woman giving the tour was extremely cool and knowledgable. We even got to talk to the brewer who was the inventor of Hazed and Infused. The tour guide even poured us a pint of the Mojo before it had the final hops added to it, and it was pretty good (although not as good as the regular Mojo). At the end of the tour, we got pitchers of nine beers to try, and since there were only five of us on the tour (two of whom were driving), we had plenty to go around. They had a lot of merchandise for sale, and even had a Double Dry Hopped Hazed and Infused on tap, although they wouldn’t sell it in growlers. If you like Boulder’s hoppy beers, definitely make the trip and go on the tour if you can. It is well worth it.
If you go to Boulder, Colorado this is a must. In the summer they get local artist playing great music for you to sip down some of the best beers in town. For the winter, Killer Penguin.....enough said.
Visited on October 15, 2012 Sat in the bar for a couple of samples when waiting for a friend. Nice fast service, the guy behind the bar was very service minded and knew about the beers, suggested which beers to sample and in which order. Didn’t eat, but could see myself go back. The outdoors seating looked nice too.
This is a pretty cool little spot to grab some grub and have a beer. The dining area is a lot smaller than I would have guessed. There are a few tables in basically two sections of the restaurant. There’s a reasonably sized bar as well. Not to say this is a tiny pub, I just imagined something larger. All the furnishings are wooden and rustic. There was a good selection of their beer available at the time. Boulder Beer has always been hit or miss for me on their offerings, but there are certainly decent options. The bartender was great. My only gripe about the ambiance was the incessant, lengthy noodling, jam-band music on the stereo. But this is Boulder, so what else can I expect? On Mondays they do a $1.50 pint with purchase of an entree during lunch. That’s a stellar deal. I had the calypso sandwich. I’d consider my meal on a par or better for pub grub in Denver metro.
Good place to spend an evening, plenty of choices. Very noisy the night we went, due to the fact that it seemed more of a Restaurant atmosphere than a brewery. Nothing wrong with that, except it was sometimes difficult getting a beer. Lots of people there, so they seem to be doing the right thing!!
Superb pub ambiance, lots of fun things on the walls. Tour was incredible, ending in free draught pitchers of all their available beer in the back private room. Superb food at ok prices. Lovely little rotating special tap that is different every time you go. A must visit for Coloradoans.
Visited 4/13/06. I LOVE these guys’ beers, normally. But aside from the faves, I was unimpressed here. The place is in an industrial park, but it was PACKED at the lunch hour we visited. The bartender knew his beers, knew his beer places and kept up with the pace. Worth another trip.
