Mountain Sun (and especially Southern Sun) are wonderful establishments. Southern Sun is a little bigger and therefore easier to get a table at during the rushes. They brew their own beer (February Stout Month is not to be missed) and also have a great selection of beer from smaller breweries that rotates regularly. The blackened chicken sandwich is one of my favorite things on this planet. Mostly though I love that they are laid back and you can hang out and eat a little and drink a little while playing any of the countless board games or read a book and no one bats a lash. Tasters are also free, big plus. I would try to avoid the busy times (happy hour, Friday and Saturday) because it might take you an hour plus to get a seat, but other than that I highly recommend this place.

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.
