Best selection of taps in Boulder in a sports bar-esque setting. Decent service, decent food.
Most of the better beer establishments in Boulder are either brewery tap rooms or brew pubs. This is not a complaint, merely the state of matters. It is unusually that in a town with such a fine beer pedigree, it's hard to find a place that has a wide selection of local and non-local offerings. Consider Backcountry Pizza & Tap House one of the best that Boulder has to offer. While the sports bar atmosphere is not typically my thing, I found myself there this past Saturday to watch the game. The place was neither crowded nor noisy. Add to that the decent food, the sunny interior, and 80's and 90's pinball and video games, you get a sports bar that isn't quite a sports bar. Service was attentive, staffed with knowledgeable servers.
While all of this is OK, but wouldn't bring me back, the selection would. Forty plus taps, two hand pumps, nitro, and great selection of local and non-local beers from the expected (Avery, Oskar Blues, Great Divide) to the unexpected (Dry Dock, Jolly Pumpkin, Lost Abbey, Russian River). This is the place to go if you're not in the mood for Avery or Mountain Sun. Worth a return visit.
