Very fine establishment with little to no wait to be seated at a prime time for brewery business in Boulder. Selection of food and drink are outstanding. West Flanders also offers the niche entertainment of various board games (cribbage etc.) while you dine and partake in the fine beer they have on tap. This unique entertainment provided an at home feel and the "european" sense of your waiter not trying to rush you out of your seat to keep business churning. I had some questions on the beer selection that our waiter seemed unsure of, which is the only knock I have against my expeience here. I'm not sure if it was the noise level or lack of knowledge but this waiter was unable to anwser questions (I have had other experiences here with more knowledgable wait staff). Overall fine beer and I will certaintly return.

A nice little stop in here prior to Taj Mahal concert. The old BJ's place...

A solid joint. Restaurant mostly it seems, but a nice beer selection. Right off the Pearl St mall gives it atmosphere, scenery and convenience. People are usually nice in Boulder and this place is no exception. Friendly service, perhaps a tad slow, but I think there was a foozball game earlier

Food was good and matched well with the pint I got, along with a flight. Had to. Beers were improved from the last time I had WFB about 9 months before at a festival. Technically more sound, so that's good.

This is a good dinner/beer destination to get you started in Boulder. Mountain Sun would be THE place, but it's small and always packed. This is a nice second

I'm not completely sure what to make of West Flanders just yet.

I made my first trip on a pleasant Thursday night. There was a nice crowd and a good atmosphere. The space itself was the home of the Boulder BJ's, until they moved to their big box location. It's relatively small, with multiple floors and a bar area at the back that's also home to the fermentation tanks. So far so good.

Service was the big letdown. As someone else noted, it seemed to take forever for someone to take our beer order. That's not the best way to start things out. The beers themselves were average to above. The Black IPA was the best of the lot, the the Dubbel a close second. Their BSDA begged for more character, while the Triple came across as a good Sour candidate. I was with three friends and we all were pretty much in agreement.

We split a couple of appetizers between us. The portions were small and the prices high. The food itself was quite tasty though. The availability of half pours was a nice touch.

In the end, I wish West Flanders well. Given Boulder's ever expanding number of breweries, I feel that they'll need to up their game to hang with their competition.

I was in the area eating dinner across the street and stopped off with my wife to sample a few. I've been following all the new breweries opening up in the area and was excited that there was a brewpub brewing Belgian-style beers in Boulder.

We sampled the Angry Monk, Tripple Lutz, and the Canniption Pale Ale. The samples were a good size at 4 oz but they were served in small glass shaker pints...very strange. None of the beers exhibited any foam or head, the carbonation was well below spec nearing flat, and the intended aromas weren't there and also, barely existed in general. We tasted each beer twice and each one of them were highly oxidized. My wife and I couldn't even get down 2 oz of any of those samples before we left.

Maybe it was their draught lines, maybe it was their process. In any case, this should have been rectified before opening or had not been served at all. Given the misspelling of "conniption" in use something tells me there are a few people involved who aren't paying attention to details.
