The atmosphere is a bit crowded and odd for a brew pub, but it is still welcoming and the people who work there all seem to be happy to be there and very pleasant, which helps for sure.

The quality of beer was solid. For being such a small brewery, the beer list was reasonably large, with maybe 15 - 20 beers on tap. The manager came out and once he found out it was our first time there, asked us what type of beer we liked and then returned with a small flight for each of the three of us to try. We each selected a full pint and were all pretty happy with our choices to go along with lunch.

The service was great, but a little odd. Everyone in the front of the house seems to do every job - bartending, serving, bussing and running food. So, other than the manager, we didn't really have a go-to person. All of that was fine, just different.

The food was pretty good. We all ate burgers and left satisfied and happy. Now that I live in Boulder I will return some time soon for sure.

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!

Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery is one sure to keep me coming back.

The wait staff was very helpful and well-informed on their very large selection of beers. While waiting for a table you are able to stand at their bar and speak with a bartender, even try a beer or two to assist in the ever-so-difficult decision. Not to say that after trying a few pours your decision will be any easier.

Once seated we had a super friendly waiter with great beer knowledge to assist in pairings. Mountain Sun also has top-notch food and selection, including many vegetarian items.

The beer is outstanding with a variety to satisfy any drinker. The only question I left with is when will I be back?

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.
