Large place, open layout. Usually hard to get a table, very busy and I usually always have a bit of a wait. Service is good, food is decent, beer is decent. Overall, itís worth the stop.

This is a great place to hang out and drink a few. The service is always excellent. The beers are plentiful with some guest taps, occasionally of stunning hard to get beers. Great for kids too as they have lots of community board games. Highly recommended.

Nice brewpub, a larger version of Mountain Sun. Staff is friendly and relatively knowledgable about the beer. The tap list is pretty good, featuring 12 to 14 beers, many of which rotate regularly, good variety. Most of their beer is quite good, particularly the IPAs. A great place to grab a beer and a bite to eat.

Definite the location that feels the most like hipster nirvana. They also have th largest space and the longest bar and the most plentiful parking. The beers here are solid but this felt like it would be the. Ost comfortable hang. At all three locations everyone was friendly and itís not unusual to have multiple people taking care of you. If I lived in boulder Iíd definitely hang out here some especially aver work with their awesome happy hour specials.

Really a nice, comfortable environment like the other locations with chill, hippie music and cool paintings on the walls. Tasty beers that run $4.50 a pint. Recommended

Had the sampler here and benefited from some post-Stout Month leftovers. Sat outside, can have a nice view and feel if you can ignore the cars. Inside is a little cozier and Iíd like to spend an evening in there. Beers were well above average for a brewpub, with some excellent one-offs and even the rare high-quality session. Food was much better here than what I had previously at the Mountain Sun (and the space not at all cramped), and parking was, well, a huge strip mall lot. Iíd love to go back.

Pretty chill place nice atomsphere, old concert poster everywhere. Lots of taps from the brewery. Maybe could have used some more guest taps. Beer was ok from what I had. Service was very friendly and on top things. Didnít have any food but menu looked good. Was a fun place with good people.

Man, what a place!! It was my first time to visit, and when the bartender/brewer heard that, he offered me a free set of tasters! I think regular price was $9.50, and I got 6 4oz glasses. And before I could even finish two, one of the brewers offered me a personal tour of the brewery. So needless to say, the staff is super friendly. Even singing along with "Brown Eyed Girl" when it came on the radio. Then when I was done with the tasters and about to leave, another one of the brewers was like "before you go, try my favourite!" and gave me another taster. Great, Great service and magnificent atmosphere; no tvs, no loud music, an awesome view of the mountains out the big side windows, and hand painted everything. Walls, crossbeams, electrical wiring, it was all painted with a very cozy, yet very Boulder, feel. Didnt try the food, but the selection of incredible taps will bring me back for sure!

With a southern flair and a large selection of beer on tap, Southern Sun is a good place for a few late-night beers. They always have a plethora of in-house brewed beers and good deals on food (especially during happy hour). The main downside (for a visitor) is that they donít accept credit cards (though thatís great for the employees). One thing to be aware of is that most of their beers lack body, even the stouts, which is disappointing.

Aside from the strip mall location, this is probably my favorite of the three locations - the original, and Vine Street are both way too small inside, and thus, it is hard to get a table a certain times of day - this place is quite spacious, and very kid-friendly - aside from the size difference, and the fact that this place has much better lighting, this is pretty much identical to the other locations - the staff here, at least on my visit, was probably the friendliest compared to my experiences at the other two locations - if you can sit by the windows, you catch a nice eye full of the foothills, which is pretty cool - the fact that their food and beer can remain so consistent between three different places, with rotating 20-somethings running the show is nothing short of miraculous.
