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.

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!
