A very nice building with abundant outside seating, and generally friendly people working and drinking. The beer is above average, but not exceptional, though they score points for having plenty on tap. Also they offer a couple of other locals on tap, such as New Belgium Frambozen over Xmas 2003.

This place has two sections. The pumphouse which seems a bit more refined and elegant and the RedZone which is a straight up sports bar. I ate in the RedZone part. Itís a massive room with lots of flat screen tvís, They actually put signs under the tvís to tell you what NFL games will be playing on what tvís. Thatís clever. They also have a section in the back with comfortable chairs and a air hockey table. The room is so big it has two bar areas. The only drawback is the volume of the music which is so loud, even on a sparsely populated Sunday night, you had trouble hearing anybody. The beers were all their own, 10 in all, plus a guest tap of Guinness. The beers were solid but none of them outstanding. The burger was excellent. I donít know if Iíd go back for the beer but it seems like a cool place to watch all of the NFL games each Sunday.

April 2006: We got a bad review of this place from a brewer at another brewery in the state, so our expectations were low. But we were pleasantly suprised. The bartender was very knowledgeable, friendly and on top of it. Not all the beers were great, but they offered a slew of them, and overall Iíd say they were pretty good. Didnít eat, but would have. Nice outdoor patio.

Nicely decorated in Firehouse theme with plenty of seating available. Good selection of house beers on tap including some seasonals. The food is standard pub fare with okay pricing. Service was decent but not excellent.

Food was decent, atmosphere was decent, service was decent, but the beers were all below average. I would not recommend the place unless youíre looking for a place to hit after Left Hand.

Visited with a friend on October 10, 2012. Nice cozy place, spacious. Quite a few beers available. Old firestation rebuild it seems. Parts of the brewery on display by the one end of the bar. Did not eat. Pretty good service.

Stopped in for lunch today - probably one of the most kid-friendly brewpubs weíve been to, which is great for beer nerds with a baby - huge space in downtown Longmont, with a lot of additional seating outside on the patio - homey/cozy inside - the staff was friendly and attentive, and best of all, they seemed to actually know something about the beer they were serving - 5 buck flights are, of course, always nice - there were 9 beers available on our visit, which is respectable, but there was not a huge variety (pretty much all session ales, with the exception of the Scotch Ale) - the food was definitely much better than one would expect from a pub, especially since the menu, at first glance, doesnít seem that interesting - the beers were mostly subpar, but you can tell that the brewer is capable of some decent stuff - worth a stop if in Longmont, but I would not make a special trip for the plae.

Pumphouse has a decent atmosphere. The beers were alright, but left a lot to be desired. I would recommend stopping at Left Hand well before you try the Pumphouse.

Lots of different beers on tap, good food (better than pub grub, no doubt about that), and a neat atmosphere make this a fun place to hang out. And now that Longmont establishments are officially smoke-free, like Boulder, it's even better. For me, though, it lacks a "standby" beer that I can always enjoy pint after pint, which is what Mountain Sun offers (Java Porter, as long is it isn't nitro poured).

This renovated firehouse has very good service, great food and a pretty decent selection of beers. When I'm in Longmont on business, I usually eat there.
