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.

A: More of a restaurant feel than a brewery.
Q: Their beers are bipolar. Either on the low end or very good.
S: Service was pretty slow. While we had some food, we were also sampling beer. Took them about 10 minutes to bring the beer out. Not sure why.
Sel: More than 10 beers on tap. The Java Porter was the stand out.
O: Not sure how they handle the samplers. It's on the menu but it seemed to confuse the waiter. Then they said if you just want to try a taste you can do that (looked like 1 oz). I was more than willing to pay for the sampler as I was there to sample. So after one flight the next 'flight' came out as 1 oz tastes. Oddly the waiter charged me the price of a full flight. I had told them I was willing to pay for the samples, but I didn't mean bring me tasters and charge me for full size samplers. It was odd.

Love this place. Whenever I'm in Colorado we make a trip to Boulder just to go here. Great hippy food selection, possibly the worlds best fries, and a great selection of super fresh brewed in house beers, with samples flowing freely. Love this place!
