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! (718 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)
