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!

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?
