Mentor warned me that this place would be "somewhat crunchy." Ha! Man, let not bohemianism deter me from anything, especially beer.
The space was, at base, a storefront, longer than wide, with lots of fabric work and colorful painting on the walls. The best was the painted hops vines running the length of the exposed ducting in the overhead. Booths lined the right side, headed aft, with standard tables in the center and a long bench with tables fronting it on the left side. The kitchen was three-quarters of the way aft with a passageway to the left leading to the lavatories and the brewhouse, behind glass. The chalkboard with the day's offering listed looked like a mosaic. Very artistic!
I had a sampler that included a java porter; English IPA; American IPA; Jah Mon Ginger (!); a light Golden Ale; and a double IPA. My pick? The ginger beer, mais oui! It really was all good and enough to entice me to come back. In fact, it made me realize that I should visit the Mountain and Pacific states more often.

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?
