Visited November 2012.

After visiting the Vine Street Pub in Denver the day before I was a bit disappointed that there really wasn’t 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 didn’t eat anything, just had a quick pint and headed out. They had less available than the Vine Street Pub over all but if you’re in Boulder and not Denver then you might as well try the beers here.

Overhyped. The food is good for bar food. The service was lacking when we went in, and it wasn’t even busy. Wouldn’t want to see it when it gets packed at night. There is a wide range of beer styles, but nothing truly outstanding. Probably fair at best. A Boulder institution, but it won’t hurt you to miss it.

Good selection of beers from the brewery, tasty food, and affordable prices. The place is really packed most of the time, so prepare to wait. The atmosphere is great and service is good. Great place, definitely worth checking out and coming again.

Pretty small place, but definitely has a style that feels at home in Boulder. Amazing staff that checked in often and was more than happy to stop for a second and talk beer. Selection was great with a number of taps dedicated to house beers and great guest taps that were filled out by other local CO breweries. Apparently, February is Stout month so dozens of Stout varieties are available throughout the month. Food was good and every plate that passed my table going to someone else looked equally delicious. Cash only, but there’s an ATM in the back with just a small service charge. Very cool place overall.

Brouwerij  (40) Boulder, Colorado | October 27, 2012| Updated January 23, 2014
Nice atmosphere with friendly and generally knowledgeable staff, service is usually pretty good. Their tap list always has 10-12 of their own beers plus a few guest taps. Nice rotation of beers and they’ll let you try any beer you ask about. The food is pretty good. Recently added a small patio. One of my favorite places to grab a beer.

Sort of a hippie vibe like the other locations. Decent beers overall, with a lot of different beers on tap for such a small facility. Very friendly and accommodating staff that went above and beyond. Parking was a bit difficult. Didn’t try the food, but worth the stop even without that.

Visited with a friend on October 8, 2012. We both had the huge portion of brisket and veggies. Sampled 13 beers. Very nice service. I’d go back for both food and beers if I lived close enough for it. I can recommend this very much.

Keep in mind none or the mountain sun locations accept credit cards, but there food and beer is so reasonably priced that you don’t need them. The smallest of the three locations but conveniently located across the street from a parking garage. I didn’t have beer on the day but lunch was excellent. Thankfully it still has that Boulder hippie vibe and everyone is friendly.

Huge hippie hangout. They usually have a few interesting beers on tap, not including the 8-12 regular beers they always have rotating. The food is good and the crowd is fun, not to mention it is located right on Pearl Street where all the action is in Boulder. They also have rotating taps from other breweries so you never know what you are going to find when you come in. Nice place to check out if you are in the Boulder area. Also - it is CASH ONLY.
