Really big room. Various table sizes. Outdoor service. TV & pop music. Quick service. Friendly staff. Big posters and a lot of items on the walls such as for instance a bison head and fire extingusihing equipment.
Visited on a Tuesday evening to attend a work function. Older building, with a big open bar area as you enter, with tables scattered throughout. We were in the somewhat private booth area towards the back, next to the brewery. Regular lineup of 5-6 beers, plus 2 seasonal beers were on offer. Bar snacks were solid, service was attentive.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Stopped here for an afternoon drink / a quick rest before heading out for a short hike. Even though it was late November it was so warm we sat outside, so I was only inside the place for about 5 minutes total. Such crazy weather you guys have in CO, but I digress. The beers were pretty decent actually. Ranged from okay-through fairly good. Service was great. Prices seemed reasonable. We did not eat, but the food seemed reasonable. Seemed like a solid place overall, but I would have probably chosen a different Boulder place than this had I known we’d only have time for a couple. There’s just too many here to do them all unless beer is the only goal of the trip.
Pretty big brewpub off of Pearl St. Typical ambiance, open and spacious, dimly lit. They had about 10 beers on tap. They range from below average to good. The food and service are average and the prices are fair. I’m sure there are better places to go in Boulder for food and drink.
Brewpub #4 on the Boulder tour. My first thought upon sitting at the bar was "this is a Rock Bottom". And, I was sort of right. The beers were about at or below typical Rock Bottom quality as well. The bartender was at least nice and talked with us for awhile. Huge location. Seems to be popular with the older crowd, probably from when it was one of the only options in town.
Large interior with a long bar and lots of tables. Was surprisingly busy on a week night. I initially wanted to get an appetizer but when I saw how packed it was I figured the wait wouldn’t be worth it and instead just got a flight of all 10 house beers. The beers weren’t too bad but not overly impressive either. The best beers there were the GFYIPA and the rye porter. I don’t see the IPA anywhere in the database here by name so I’m guessing it’s a renamed version of another one that’s listed. Actually, now that I look closer I see that this place is affiliated with Rock Bottom. Not sure why it gets it’s own beer listing but what ever. The bartender was very nice and even made some suggestions of other places in town. She mentioned Reuben’s and West Flanders Brewing (formerly BJ’s). Not a bad place but it is a bit noisy and popular so if you want to be in a quiet room somewhere by yourself to rate all your beers then this isn’t the place for you.
Dark and dingy interior a block away from Pearl street. Service was OK, although the bartenders are never really friendly. Food is decent, but the beer is pretty terrible. Stop in for some ticks if you are nearby, but not worth seeking out. There are much better places to be had in Boulder.
Brouwerij (40) Boulder, Colorado | June 6, 2013| Updated September 16, 2013
Big, open restaurant, long bar, big televisions with no sound, useless for all but sports. Always nice to be able to see brewing process. Eight or nine taps, some seasonals that rotate. Overall the beer is decent, the cask conditioned beers are generally better. Most of the beer is decent but quite mild. Service has always been very friendly but knowledge of beer varies widely depending on who you speak with. A solid place to grab a pint.
