Visited November 2012.

After visiting the Vine Street Pub in Denver the day before I was a bit disappointed that there really wasnít anything different here in terms of beer. Also, there was pretty much nobody in the restaurant. No bartender, no servers, nothing. I sat at a table and eventually someone came by and I ordered a glass of the wet hopped Saison which was admittedly pretty good. The server was nice but judging by how little she had to say I suspect that they were closing up shop for the night. I didnít eat anything, just had a quick pint and headed out. They had less available than the Vine Street Pub over all but if youíre in Boulder and not Denver then you might as well try the beers here.

Visited with Mike on my tour of Boulder. Smallish location in the downtown area. Small patio out front and some tables and booths inside. Ordered some of their rotating Belgian beers to try and a chicken burrito. Found the burrito to be quite enjoyable and the beers were pretty solid all around with one or two duds. The service was very friendly and quick. They have a ton of beers on tap, so you can probably always find something new. Cool little place, would definitely be back.

This IS quintessential Boulder, they even have a Jerry Garcia DOLL inside and people wear tie dies. Casual and friendly, more a restaurant than bar, but sitting at the bar is a nice experience and gives insight into unique Boulder culture. If you get the chance to try Hop Vivant, itís really yummy.

Been here three times, first time in October 1999 ... a groovy little hippie joint with pretty good beers, OK food. Wasnít impressed by the service first two times ... improved in 2006.

(Visited 07/2010): Mountain Sun is located in the Pearl Street Mall area of Boulder. Metered parking is fairly abundant in the surrounding blocks, although it might take some good timing to find a spot right by the brewpub. The inside is relatively small, with a narrow walkway up the middle of the space and tables/booths on either side. There is a bar of sorts in the rear that allows for standing. Funky artwork adorns the walls. The brewing equipment is in the far back end of the building near the restrooms and is visible behind windows. The beer selection is pretty impressive. There are around 15 beers on tap, from lighter styles like Quinnís Golden Ale, Saint Amos Wit, a Saison, and a Blackberry Wheat to richer fare like couple IPAs, a Coffee Porter and Thunderhead Stout. All of the beers are average to above average, with a couple being standouts. Samplers are available in flights of 6. Service was good despite the place being very busy. Our server brought us a ton of samples and gave recommendations for other beer spots in the area. On top of that, one of the brewers saw me scoping out the brewing equipment and invited me in to take a look around, which was nice. We did not try any food on our visit. Overall this is a very good beer destination in Boulder and I would definitely visit again.

Keep in mind none or the mountain sun locations accept credit cards, but there food and beer is so reasonably priced that you donít need them. The smallest of the three locations but conveniently located across the street from a parking garage. I didnít have beer on the day but lunch was excellent. Thankfully it still has that Boulder hippie vibe and everyone is friendly.

Great selection of house brews plus some guest taps. The food was pretty good and at fair prices. Service was above a typical brewpub; the waitress actually knew something about beer. The place is somewhat cramped, though.

Hippie type student bar. Didnít eat. Service was very attentive. The list of house beers was huge, but some of them were pretty crappy. Thereís a few winners on the list though so I think everyone will find something they like. I liked it.

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | October 3, 2005
Huge selection of 18 brews! during GABF week. Hippieish atmosphere, unpretentious, friendly waiters, but a bit stressed/annoyed/annoying owners when they saw we were taking notes. Good food, better than most Iíve seen in Denver. The beers range from average to very good, making it close to a must visit in the whole Colorado scene .potentially.
