Visited for a quick lunch and a drink on a Sunday afternoon, and like others have said, the interior is much more spacious than the Mountain Sun pub in downtown Boulder. Selection was pretty good, 12-14 taps but probably 8-10 were things that I found at the other pub 3 years ago! Maybe just (un)lucky or maybe an indication that theyíre a little stagnant. Regardless, I enjoy my visit, tried a new IPA, and was treated well sitting at the bar. A quick bite and a drink was fairly inexpensive. I donít really dig the stripmall atmosphere where the building is located, but inside itís comfortable and pleasant.

February 2009. This doesnít come close to being as charming as sister Mountain Sun closer to downtown Boulder. But they offer the same beers (for the most part) and the same quality burger fare. Worth a visit if youíre in this part of town, but otherwise Iíd pick Mountain Sun first. (Brewery #472)

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.

This is a lot more open and roomy than Pearl Street and has seemingly the same number of taps even though the selection is not the same (be warned now if you visit for Stout Month). Otherwise, same Mountain Sun food and spacey service from waiters/waitresses more in tune with what other co-workers are doing than servicing customers.

Visited Friday afternoon Dec 19, 2008. Friend and I stopped by here with some time to kill before the Avery tasting room opened. This is a pretty straightforward restaurant space in a strip mall, though they have added some nice design touches to make this a nice place to have a beer. There are several communal tables and a nice long bar to sit at. Overall, the feeling was good in this place. Did not have the food, but the beer was good. Had about 8 of their own handles and 3 guest taps.

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

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.

The trip that almost didnít happen. Planned my Monday around coming here and guess what, they were closed for their X-Mas get together. So I came at 11:30 the next day and guess what, they decided to open at 4pm due to their X-Mas party. All this after calling and not getting anything other than their normal business hours on their answering machine. Iíve skipped places for worst than this! Just had appetizers. I was floored by the amount of their beers on tap. The chalk board listed 18 beers and the waitress told me to look at the taps as they had more than that!

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.

Situated in a land of strip mall suburbia the tye-die element found at the other might be lacking to a degree. The beers should help you get over that.
