I made a day trip to Boulder and went to Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery for lunch. Arrived there shortly after they opened around 11:30 AM after walking up and down Pearl Street, checking out all of the different stores and finding myself in complete awe of the magnificent beauty of the Rocky Mountains that serve as a backdrop.

There is a good amount of seating and the brewery tanks can be found in the back. The service here was outgoing, friendly, helpful, resourceful and very attentive. Staff here appear to "pitch in" in all facets of serving and food preparation, which is a rather unique approach. It clearly works and is quite effective. Things started to get really busy as we were leaving.

The vibe and atmosphere here is laid back, as is most of Boulder. They have some board games like Trivial Pursuit, Connect Four, Scrabble, etc. to help pass the time.

The beers are awesome and super fresh. I started out with a Java Stout that was tasty. There was about 15 or so draft options that include F.Y.I.P.A., Annapurna Amber, Colorado Kind Ale, Java Porter, XXX Pale Ale, Blackberry Ale, Quinn's Golden Ale, Illusion Dwellar IPA, Lil Williy, Smoke Screen Porter, Old School Irish Dry Stout, Cleveland Brown, Swan Song and Old Skippy. There are also three "guest handles" too like Avery Maharaja.

Food was really good. I started with the Spinach Soup and got the Spicy Pollo Asada Burrito with green chili. All of the food I sampled was flavorful.

You have the option to order beers in either 8 oz, 16 oz and 48 oz. I always like to see this at a brewery.

What else is there to say about this place? I really enjoyed my visit here. Definitely recommended if you are in Boulder. (1,694 characters)

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. (604 characters)

Beer was good but chicken sandwich was pink in middle - returned and replaced. To their credit no charge for the sandwich at all. (130 characters)
