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.
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. It’s a massive room with lots of flat screen tv’s, They actually put signs under the tv’s to tell you what NFL games will be playing on what tv’s. That’s 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 don’t know if I’d go back for the beer but it seems like a cool place to watch all of the NFL games each Sunday.
Stopped in for food before hitting the Left Hand. It wasn’t the Left Hand Brewery, but then the Left Hand Brewery doesn’t have good food. Doesn’t have any food. So...there you go.
It was a blistering hot day and they have a really wonderful misting system that keeps the temps down on would have otherwise been a scorcher of a lunch.
I had a Brush Fire BPA. It was good!

Food was decent, atmosphere was decent, service was decent, but the beers were all below average. I would not recommend the place unless you’re looking for a place to hit after Left Hand.
Red Zone side, open patio (and a nice 60 degree spring day), big bar and lots of space. Sat at random table, service never stopped by my table for 20+ min despite visiting tables on either side of me; was about to head directly to bar to order but decided to log in here instead to gripe when someone finally asked if I’d been helped; beyond that service was typical. Menu is typical American pub fare and good enough at average+ prices ($2 off apps 3-6, 10-12); beer selection is ok with usual local choices (nothing unique on this end) and their own line of brews (very unique) with apparently no tap space wasted on the bud lights of the world (available in bottle if you must). Their brews are safe (good but not spectacular); today I had the Co-Conspirator Imperial Stout (seasonal), and Tiger Nut Stout, both safe brews. Also, the jalapeno bacon-wrapped sausages which are deep fried are very good and nicely spicy (and doctor recommended.. NOT!). Overall, dinged for service but suspect that varies.
Stopped in for lunch today - probably one of the most kid-friendly brewpubs we’ve 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, doesn’t 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.
Great location and ambiance. They have some nice house brews. It is a brew pub so if you are looking for variety this isn’t the place for you. They are always busy, so if need some social interaction this is a good choice.
Awesome place to chill and drink a beer. Its $4 a pint there, so it’ll suck money out of you wallet really quickly if you’re not careful. Food was pretty solid, and all of their brews are at least drinkable, if not fantastic. Their imperial stout kicked ass. And you can get a flight of 5 brews for $5 which was awesome.
Visited for dinner on a Thursday night. The building was pretty big and right on the main street in Longmont. We had a group of five of us, but we were seated outside almost immediately. The service was very good, as the waitress was very friendly. The food was extremely good (I had a huge chicken burrito), and the beers were also very tasty. The atmosphere was perfect, as the staff, seating, and weather were all ideal for having a good time. I would definitely stop back if I was nearby.
