Visited at noon on 4/26/09, one of my favorite places in all of Colorado, one of the best burger and beer combinations you will ever have, one block east of the main drag on Pearl St.,. walk in and see some colorful artwork on the walls and immediately feel the mellow hippieish vibe, super relaxing place to sit down and have some brews, place is clean and has lots of open space, I ordered a blackened burger with bacon and cheese fries, the food was outstanding and cheap, only seven dollars for all that, the people working there were so cool, which is part of the reason I went back a second day, they bring you tasters of stuff saying you might like this and offer all kinds of insight into the beers and are completely honest, even sat down and talked to us about where else we should visit in the area, super good service, onto the beer, it is all their beer which is awesome, there was about a dozen taps when we were there, you can order them in half pints, pints, and pitchers, beer prices are more reasonable than anything I have seen for years, it is like happy hour all the time, of the beers I had which I at least sampled all of them over a two day span, my favorites were the coffee porter and bourbon stout, went to the bathroom in the back and saw a little room where they do their brewing, awesome little place that I cannot wait to get back to, I hope I also get to go to Southern Sun sometime in the near future, this place is phenomenal, if you live anywhere near here, do yourself a favor and go indulge in great food and beer

i have been a patron of the mountain sun/southern sun empire since they opened in 1993 and have been there as recently as last week. these guys have the model on lock. the open pubs slowly, in well thought out locations and they succeed every time out.
the mountain sun is way too crowded on any given day due to its location and small size and southern sun is often a better choice if you want to get a table with minimal wait or sit at the bar.
the vibe is mellow hippy no tvs good music
quality of beers is solid across the board with fyipa and colorado kind being my go to's
they have a large number of choices on any given day and a few guest taps as well.
service is solid waiters rotate and they all help out so i have never had bad service here
selction of beers is great and the february stout month is particularly fantastic in terms of variety
food is very solid pub fare
thank you mountain sun for keeping it real and a town that is increasingly fake!

I've been going to MS for going on 20 years and realized I'd neglected reviewing it. As the flagship of a beer/food empire now consisting of 6 locations, my patronage here has been the result of the quality of the beer and the experience. I appreciate their consistent devotion and excellent execution of British-style ales - the Illusion Dweller and the FYIPA are among my favorites - and find their food very satisfying and a good value. Service has been good, too, even when the Pearl Street location gets busy and there's a wait for to a place to land. I'll continue to go there when I'm in Boulder.

Beer was good but chicken sandwich was pink in middle - returned and replaced. To their credit no charge for the sandwich at all.
