Ski lodge meets sports bar vibe. Dark, tall ceilings, with an irregular shaped floor plan. Four tops and booths with seating both upstairs and downstairs. Went there on a Thursday for a beer and some food. Not many people there. A mix of interesting and WTF beers (should I get the Mikkeller or the Coors?). Enough to choose from, though, I was able to find 2 or 3 beers that were interesting. Service was good, knowledgeable staff. Food was OK. I had a roasted veggie sandwich and shared nachos. Overall, not a bad place, but not terribly interesting. Would I go back? Probably, there aren't a whole lot of places in the immediate area and it would be a good place for a beer and, maybe, a bite. Definitely worth a visit if you're close by and have never been. Would I make it a regular stop if I frequently visited Tempe? I think the beer list might grow old unless there was regular rotation. The number of macros was a bit surprising. And the food was just OK.

I've got nothing but great things to say about Boulders. It was the very first place I visited that really showed me there are bars that care about beer and the people who drink it. If I'm going anywhere, Boulders is isually the first place I'll consider (due to it's proximity to my home). Not only do you get a solid beer lineup but the food is killer. Swing by for your hangover cure in the AM on Sat/Sun because they've got a great brunch menu and the service is always excellent.

Overall, a great place. Knowledgable bartenders,
good food. No weasel spit. A really good place to explore unknown beers. The food is good and fast. Not too busy considering how close it is to ASU. A must visit if you are in the southeast valley of Phoenix.

There was a strange odor when we arrived. Like maybe a vacuum cleaner's bag needing replacement. This was a minor deal really. The menu is extensive and the beer selection is great. The wait staff was all friendly, polite and quick. If you're ever in Tempe check it out. We went here for lunch. I bought an appetizer to share and it was called Classic Bar Stuff, a sampler of fried zucchini, cheese sticks, onion rings, and wings with a couple of dipping sauces. For my main course I got a Grilled Pesto Chicken sandwich with waffle fries. Very nice! I ordered a lemonade first as we walked a ways to get here and then I ordered For Peaks Hefeweizen. It was well worth the long walk in the hot sun to find this oasis in the desert!
