Vine Street is a great place somewhat off the beaten path from the traditional bar scene in Downtown Denver but not far enough away that you can't enjoy it. A simple trip down 17th gets you there. The atmosphere is extremely relaxed, no TVs, no credit cards, custom chalk art on the ways. You can tell this place is linked to Boulder and has more of a granola/hippy character to it. The service is excellent. The food is also excellent. Great place to relax and unwind with some great food, beer, and perhaps a game of bags on the sidewalk. Highly recommended.

Atmosphere - plenty of seating inside; on the patio and at the bar; nice and open! Games for everyone to play while they're hanging out and they're cool if you bring in your own games! Great people watching, from the local hippie scene to the families with kids!
Quality - haven't been disappointed with anything here really. They don't take credit cards, so that may be a shock to anyone not carrying cash, but they have a great "good karma" program!
Service - friendly and fairly efficient, though a busy weekend can be hit or miss.
Selection - something for everyone, and luckily for me usually at least 3 that I really like!
Food - excellent and a variety of some off beat stuff and some very basic comfort food!
Value - considering everything...this place is a must!

A Denver outpost of the Boulder brewery - visited after a long day of trekking (and driving) around Rocky Mountain NP. Snagged a nice table outside and proceeded to get pretty intoxicated on hopforward beers.

Food was good enough - high quality bar food with a number of appealing burgers. Definitely hit the spot. There were a ton of taps - lots of hop varietals and a few guests

I'm not sure I would necessarily seek this out when in Denver, but definitely had a great time after the sun went down on the patio.

Big place, dudes playing cornhole outside on the patio, big patio area. Inside, picnic style bench in the middle, lots of seating. Kind of a well to do hippie yuppie vibe. No televisions, despite Broncos pre-season game (maybe they knew beerandraiderfan was coming). They don't accept cards, cash only, automatic 18% gratuity if you and five friends visit the establishment on their own. And of course, since the tip is automatic, the service becomes terrible.

Waited almost a half an hour to have our order taken. Beers were anything but fitting the description the server or menu indicated. Large selection, big tap list, beers taste like it was the same yeast strain in every beer. Colorado Kind, not all that hoppy, for instance. And really gritty. Prices were a little on the high side, but especially when you throw 18% on the top, for really nothing in terms of service other than bringing it to you long after you wanted it, and ordered it.

Food tasted like stuff pulled out of the freezer, the burgers were decent, but nobody in our group was particularly impressed. One couple with us said it used to be cooler, and cheaper here, but those days apparently have passed. I wouldn't recommend really. Its one of those ethos places that seems contrary to its own alleged ethos. All about the money here, not the product, convenience etc. . .

I dig the Vine. The atmosphere is pretty good if you're into the hippie thing (and there's nothing wrong with it by me), but it can be annoyingly crowded with kids and...uh...hippies depending on when you go.

The Vine/Mountain Sun/Southern Sun beers are solid. They also do a pretty good job of bringing in other breweries to supplement the 8-12 Vine beers.

Service is good...not great. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable but not always paying attention, so you might sit with an empty glass on occasion.

Selection is good. The Vine's own beers form a nice core to a selection of 15-20 beers that are high in quality.

Food is pretty solid from burgers to veggie fare. There is some hippie love that goes into the kitchen and it shows in the food. Definitely a step up from the frier fare you find at a lot beer joints, but there is nothing too fancy here, and the price is nice (for food...reasonable for beer). Good carrot cake, for what its worth.

All in all, a good neighborhood spot with good food and beer, but if beer is what you're after, there are better places in Denver. Except during Stout Month.

I give the exact the same review for the Southern Sun in Boulder.

Went for dinner with a friend on a Friday evening. This looks a bit like a typical pub. It's not quite a college hang out, not quite a family restaurant. Does a decent job at walking the line between the two (while I was there, both babies and pregnant women and drunk 20-somethings were present). The interior is big and open and sparsely decorated, and there's two large outdoor patio areas: one with lots of seating and the other is standing only with cornhole games.

The beer selection is sizeable, and both of the beers I tried (an IPA and a saison) were very good. Definitely a wide variety of brews.

Our waitress was fine, but our drinks and food came out slowly. Food was fine. Mostly basic pub/bar food with maybe a slight hippy twist.

Overall a worthy stop.

A great little place in uptown Denver. I've been here a couple times with a friend from Boulder - she likes the original so much that whenever she comes down she insists on VSP. They've got a great operation - incredible service, great scene, awesome beer selection, and tasty food.

It's mostly young professionals (uptown...) and a Boulder-like crowd - indie/hipster/Chacos etc. The beer is mostly their own stuff brewed in Boulder (Mountain Sun), but there are plenty of other options as well. Food is bar food, but it's good and there are plenty of options. A great go-to, whether you live in the area or not.

denver brother of boulder's mountain sun. awesome spot. plenty of seating inside and a nice bar with a ton of taps. they were having stout month, so they featured about ten on tap, most of them theirs with just a few high quality guest beers. cool at mosphere and amazing service (lots of babes too). service was champion, with plenty of free tasters and expertise, same as mountain sun. fair prices for happy hour, but a little steep after that. looked like good food but we didnt eat. will absolutely be back here. they run a great operation.
