Nice friendly pub atmosphere. I've been there three times in the past two months. Servers have been quick, friendly, and helpful. All three times I've had large salads, all very good. I'm a malty dark beer fan, so absolutely love the chocolate porter "Shake."
Had the Shake on nitro and CO2... prefer the CO2. Also had the chocolate porter as a milkshake, which was good if you are in the mood for a dessert beer.

Really nice outside patio facing southwest. Plenty of parking. If you can't find a spot in the parking lot, park on the street that circles around the building. It is a comfortable, casual pub with a nicely quirky staff. The only disappointment I had were the french fries which I didn't like. I really prefer sweet potato fries, so I may not be a good judge on the fries.

In the past I've avoided the Wilderness Pub because I didn't really care for their beers, but the Shake is a big hit for us! We will be adding this to our regular pub outings.

Went for the tour, stayed for lunch, which was quite good and reasonably priced. I got a burrito of sorts if my memory recalls accurately. Tour was fun but if you already know how beer is made, there really is no need to attend. You get a ton of free beer at the end (like pitchers worth) so that was cool. Servers were helpful and nice so I can't fault them there. My only issue is that I can get everything they had on draft in New Jersey in bottles. Was hoping for a few more experimental beers having made the trek across country. I guess they just have to keep up with the production/bottling to fully experiment like other smaller breweries.

In all my visits to the Boulder area I had never been to Boulder Beer. I realized I had missed nothing. What a completely lame selection of beers on-tap. Nothing out of the ordinary at all.

We had just eaten at Oskar Blues in Longmont so we didn’t try the food. And frankly the beer selection was so boring we just had one each and left.

The bar/eating area is fairly small… there is a patio for the warmer months. I felt like it didn’t feel like a eatery or a bar… the “brewery” was too present. It was like the brewery tour launch point-bar-restaurant-gift shop was all crammed into once space… maybe because it was.

Friendly service.

I have nothing else to add. It was almost pointless for us to stop.

As a Boulder resident, I sure wish this place was better because I
would stop in a lot more often. Bottom line is: if you're from out of
town, it is worth stopping in just to buy some of their swag. One
thing that Boulder Beer has is great art work for their labels which
you can get on every type of apparel at this pub.

If you're local, maybe come in to see if they have Obovoid on tap (winter months).

The wait staff is a little slow and the bartender does not seem to care about the tables i.e. even though he is the first one to see
you, he doesn't communicate that to any of the waitresses.

They don't do tasters right: too small for the price.

Among locals, I have not heard anyone say much good about
the place. There are several other places where you can spend
your time and get better beer and service.

They do have a good summer festival if you're around for that.
