I stopped here with some friends while in Boulder on business. It was kind of spur-of-the-moment but I think I found one of the better spots in town (lots to choose from though).
Right out of the car the atmosphere was nice due to the strong aroma of wort brewing. I appreciate that aroma from homebrewing and also from some of the cooler brewpubs like Pizza Port.
The beer selection wasn't bad, about 10 beers to choose from (all brewed on site). One of the beers was served from a cask (Hazed and Infused) which I got to compare with the draft version side-by-side (cool). The regular selection covers the usual bases (porter, pale ale, IPA, hefe-weizen) and none were really bad but a few were average. My favorite was the hefeweizen (Sweaty Betty).
Lots of food to order, normal pub stuff like hamburgers, nachos, etc. Prices were moderate too, so I recommend a visit.

Stopped here with my friend from Denver. Cool to visit one of the originals, and the place had a good feel but not great. Beers were standard issue that day, except I never had a chance before to try their barleywine. Service was attentive but not intuitive. I wouldn't say this place was average because it did have did excel in decor, the barleywine, and service but I think if I wanted to go to another brewery, I would rather explore a new one than go to this one again.... it was more of a brewpub and not an experience.

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

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.

love this place. cool atmosphere, especially when its nice enough to sit outside. small operation and taproom, good feel to it. really friendly staff that was happy to do a private tour for me. lots of nice beers on tap, and usually a cask offering, all at reasonable prices. food at lunchtime was excellent and prices were plenty fair. in fact, after my tour i was given about half a pitcher of each beer they had going, which needless to say was enough to get wasted and then some. all of that was free. an all around good time

As others have commented, Boulder Beer (yes, this is the official name again) can be a bit hard to find. It is located in an area of industrial and high tech offices. Once you find it, you are greeted by a decent sized dining room, with a 10 or 12 seat bar in the middle area. Also attached is a nice patio. The brewery surrounds the dining area, with big windows on both sides to see the operations. When I visited they had all of Boulder Beer's offerings on tap, as well as a mead from the local Redstone. Food is mostly pub food, but very well done. Service has always been nothing less than fantastic.
