The overwhelming thing about this place is that it is fairly small, all in one big room, and buzzing with conversation. The place is alive, even on a weeknight. Not a place to go for a quiet beer. The beer selection is pretty large, and all the beers seem solid if not completely spectacular. The Happy Hour prices ($2.25/pint) are insane! They have a 6-beer sampler, with very healthy sized sampler glasses for about $8-9.

To get the same beers in a mellower restaurant setting, you can go to "Southern Sun" on the south side of Boulder.

They brew on site, and I liked that you pass the brewing area on the way to the bathroom. Got to see the blowoff tube on a multi-barrel fermenter bubbling away - very cool!

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!
