This place gets five stars for the beer I haven't been able to stop thinking about since my visit: Bourbon Addict Imperial Coffee Stout.
That beer was perfection and consumed my thoughts and cravings during my four-day trip to Boulder last month. I want more. I need more. It keeps calling me, man. *Pookie voice
This beer was bursting with bourbon notes, oak, dark malt, toffee, vanilla, caramel and of course, coffee, but it all worked so damn well together. Despite the high alcohol content, it was smooth, creamy and full-bodied. It really was a work of art.
I also must commend the brewers here for the Belgian Black IPA, as that too was superb. These two beers stole the show.
As for the food, I only snacked on a few nachos, but found them to be packed with plenty of flavor.
But you don't need food when you have Bourbon Addiction. I have the Bourbon Addiction. I need my fix.

Me and my Corn Dog went here on our Colorado trip. Definitely a must if you are in Colorado. Such a great vibe here! Lots of local support. Its pretty lit up with art inside, and outside is a little patio with live street musicians everywhere. Had a flight of almost all their beers, great big selection, the food was very innovative and delicious, our server was very cool/friendly. Its a good thing we got there early because it started getting packed around 5pm. For sure one of my favorite beer spots in Colorado to date.

The food is good for bar food with a lot of vegan options. The service was lacking when we went in, and it wasn’t even busy. Wouldn’t want to see it when it gets packed at night. There is a wide range of beer styles, but nothing truly outstanding. A Boulder institution, but it won’t hurt you to miss it.

Pretty much a restaurant with a small bar in back if you want to order a beer while you wait for a table. Went during dinner, big mistake, long wait, long enough that I sampled two beers (porter and a pale ale which were both forgettable) while waiting and ended up leaving. It was just a table for 2 which shouldn't have taken so long. Let's also add that I tried to go for lunch the day before but they were closed for a company party. Just a poor experience overall and I was quite excited to visit because of the quality reviews and the fresh food that was advertised on the menu.

As first timers to the area, we weren't quite sure where to go for a good brew and some good grub. Someone we met on a hike mentioned we should stop here. It did not disappoint. Good beer and good food. Their porter was surprisingly refreshing, and just what we needed after a long hike. Will definitely make a return trip.

I regularly hang here. Great beer, good food, and amazing service, never pretentious and always let you sample beers. If you are visiting Boulder this place is a must! If you live here you already know this place. I also love Southern Sun and Under the Sun. Ask about the Karma Envelope...

Hmm, a hippie place in Boulder? Go figure. I stopped and did a flight and all were decent with the IPAs being the stars of the show. Place had a laid back atmosphere and service was good, selection decent. Consider the broad range of beers listed I might have to stop again and if you're in Boulder it probably doesn't hurt to stop.

Went on a recent trip to CO. Went to Avery before and some people suggested this place for dinner. Place was busy on a Tuesday but got seated after about 10 min wait. They had app 20 diff. drafts all brewed in house. I got an American stout and a very good burger for about 13 bucks. Best part was the service. About every 5-10 min our server brought over a free taster of a different beer. Great experience and vibe. Would love this place in my Hometown.

Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery was a great spot to meet up with friends and grab a cold draft. I visited during Stout Month and was able to taste most of the stouts on draft. The beer prices are comprable to other places and the staff is friendly. I would recommend.

Tried this brewery/restaurant on a friend's recommendation from his last visit to Boulder. The place is small and the tables are packed a little tight. The place seemed to be very popular because even on a Sunday night it was packed. We were the last groups to get a table without a wait. The beer selection is decent, but not huge. The beers themselves were not bad. The food was good, but nothing that would blow you away. Our server was pleasant but a little slow. May have been due to how busy the place was that night. Overall a decent experience at reasonable prices. Not sure if I would go back, more because there are so many places to try in Boulder than that that I did not like the place.
