Located right on Pearl Street, just down from Mountain Sun, they had an outdoor patio which immediately caught my attention since I had to transit it to go inside. The maitre d' station was on the right side with a good bit of restaurant seating to the left. The bar area was a just a long, wood-tiled plank with eight FVs and the brewhouse as the back bar. Along the right side of the bar area was a series of booths. There were a second and third floor bar areas, but my interest was quickly beginning to flag. I had a sampler which was nothing spectacular, snagged some coasters for my collection, and headed off into the night.

This was a new visit for me on my last trip out there and was thrilled to see a little eating place with cask ale. Stopped in and ate out on the patio, great chaep food and ordered up a cask IPA. Very yummy and the server really seemed to know alot about the operation, more then anyone ever does around here anyway. I really thought the quality of the beer and food was excellent. I had thought it might come off as just another average brwepub, but to be honest they have a good chance of making it a little bigger. Excellent stop and I would highly recommed making it in there.

Visited 4/24/09, reviewed from notes, smack dab in the middle of Pearl Street, girlfriend wanted to eat dinner here even though we have several locations back home, what really separated this one from others I have seen in the past is that Pliny the Elder and Damnation were on tap, wow was not expecting that, other than that they had all their usual beers except for a seasonal IPA which I tried and the 2009 version of their Grand Cru, as always enjoyed a deep dish pizza loaded with different meats which is always good, prices are decent for food and not bad for pints that are mostly under five bucks, dollar off during happy hour, more long and narrow than others I have been too but still a cool place, nice and fairly knowledgable staff about beer surprisingly, do not know if I will get to this location again but Westwood, Torrance, and San Bernardino will continue to get my support, check out their seasonal brews when going to any of the locations, have been the best in my experiences, although Nutty Brewnette is always good

Popped in here on my tour of Boulder this week. Front dining area leads to the bar in back, with stools and about 5 booths. Upstairs are more tables and areas to reserve for parties. Wood floors and stair case. Vats are just behind the bar. 12or so taps (8 host, 4 guest). They had a wide variety of there own beers. I tried several, and one from their hand-pump (Captain's Porter). They also have a very nice selection of Belgian bottles, I was surprised to see them, as well as Maredsous 8 on tap.
The food is good, but at happy hour the appetizers and pizzas are super cheap and good.
Nice little patio area, of course it was snowing so no one used it. I like this place. Nothing fancy, but a solid joint.

My first boulder BP I visited, not bad.

The atmosphere was pretty corporate/chainish., This place didn't reek of beer culture to be sure!


Most of the beers were above average, the PM Porter & Tatonka were the best beers I tried out of the sampler.

Food looked alright, the Kids pizza was inhaled by my son

Service wasn't bad, friendly enough
9 Beers on offer, cask beers on Thursdays & 3 quality guest beers on offer including Lindemens Frambozen, Mirror Pond Pale ale

The pricing seemed reasonable enough. I'd go again, but wouldn't go outta my way to visit.

Spot in the middle of the Pearl Street Mall, this place competes with three other brewpubs in a 1/2 mile square radius and countless others in Boulder...and it holds its own fairly well.

I stopped in on a Saturday afternoon during college football season and was able to get a seat at the bar, but this place was packed with families and college students. They had eight beers on tap...five of their forever brews (Piranha Pale Ale, Tatonka Stout, PM Porter, Jeremiah Red, Harvest Hefeweizen) and three seasonals (CtrlALTDelete, Pumpkin Ale, and Fresh Hop Ale). In a gesture in support of other local berwers, they also had a guest tap for Avery's Old Jubilation.

The sampler treated me to all five of the standard releases and two of the seasonals. I was especially impressed with the Fresh Hop seasonal and could have easily enjoyed a pint or two of the porter. For the most part, the other beers were passable but nothing to write home about.

Service was excellent and attentive. They were happy to talk about the beers and seemed fairly knowledgable. The food came promptly and was tasty, though everything was a bit pricey (all apps were >$6). But I shouldn't act too surprised: this is Bobo after all.

Worth a stop on a beer tour of Boulder.

this is a chain, but i really dont mind this place. the beers are very standard offerings, designed not to offend anyone. they have maybe 8 or 10 on tap at a time. the imperial stout was my favorite and the hefe wasnt bad, but this is probably the least quality beer of all the boulder producers. food though was pretty good, i liked the calamari, and the service was very friendly. lots of free tasters for us, and my glass never got empty without another being poured for me. a good place for a quick bite before a show at the boulder theater, but if you want fine micro brews, chech out mountain sun or one of boulder's other breweries.

Maybe it is because this is the first one I visited, but this is still my favorite BJ's. It is located on the Pearl Street pedestrian mall in Boulder. Long narrow building with a decent sized patio with heaters out front. Two levels of seating, with a long well appointed bar towards the back. The brewery equipment is all behind the bar. The wait staff has always been friendly and prompt, and the food is typical BJ's, but has always been well prepared. Beer is mostly typical BJ's, but they occasionally have special seasonals that are a step above many other BJ's beers I have tried.
