Two locations in Boulder. Pearl street is small and often crowded. Great selection of beers. Two guest taps on tap at all times as well. The beer is good. Food is very basic. Service is good. This location is a hippie haven. The other location located off Baseline in the southern part of town is much bigger. I am a big fan of this brewery.

Stumbled across this place on a recent road trip out West, and was really pleasantly surprised. On a hot July day, the cool, simple environment of this brewpub was like an oasis. Though this branch doesnít have a bar per se, I bellied up to the counter in the back and found myself next to the establishmentís brewer, Brian. A gentleman and excellent conversation partner, Brian led me through a tour of his very fine offerings. I expressed my interest in a refreshing pale, and he hooked me up with four samples. I settled on a pint of XXX and, later, Kind (both really excellent). And he also gave me some of his really interesting and unique Java Porter. Great place, great experience, great beers! Donít miss it if youíre in Boulder.

All thatís nice about the hippy vibe in Boulder can be found in at Mountain Sun and itís sister location Southern Sun. The dining room is open and sunny. Neat murals and jam-band posters on the walls. It can be darn crowded and loud in here after work. Be warned, but donít be entirely deterred. The staff is, like you know, chill, friendly and low-key. Their beers are decent-to-solid, and thereís usually plenty on tap to choose from. Sometimes a surprising guest tap. The food is stellar; hippy-chow meets pub grub. They have the BEST "clean" burger in Boulder. Overall. Donít miss it. The vibe is great. And, cool enough, the consistency between the main MS and SS is staggering. If one is packed, try the otheróthe experience will be the same.

Really decent beers overall, with a decor that was really reminiscent of a Mellow Mushroom. I would go here again

Solid beers with a lengthy in house selection. The food is really phenomenal as well. Friendly staff is all pretty helpful and service is good. Be prepared to wait for a table though, as seating is limited and this bar is hopping almost every night. Great live music as well.

Went here during GABF weekend 05. Hippie-like hang-out with a clean and appealing interior decor, small bar and plenty of tables. Great menu, with many vegetarian options and a large selection overall. Food was really quite good. Beer selection was huge and I quite enjoyed what they had. All unfiltered of course, with many different American and some German styles. Would have liked to have seen more Belgian styles, but you canít have it all. All of the staff was quick, helpful and friendly. My kind of place, Iíd hang out there a lot if I lived nearby.

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.

It was not my intention to go here (had initially headed to Southern Sun but they were closed...during GABF of all times?) Anyhow, Iím glad I went. Got to see some of the campus and cool campus hippie shops. the credit card thing is an inconvienience but the cost was reasonable. Very nice selection of beers, way more than I imagined. Food was very tastey and service was fine. Not a very big place and I imagine this gets crowded during the weekends and evenings, but while we were there, it was very pleasant. Iíd go back to either of their breweries.

A nice little find in Boulder. The pub grub was delicious and the beer selection was excellent--no doubt due to the GABF time of year. The service was excellent. Our server, and every server within earshot knew their stuff about the food and beer. That was nice for a change. Weíll be visiting there again!
