Located closely to Mountain Sun, I had to stop by because I was in the neighborhood. Interior is pretty nice. Large with lots of wood and steel girders. It had a cool look. Serving tanks are behind the bar, fermentation vessels above the serving tanks, and the mash tun, hot liquor tank, and boil kettle is located in a square room surrounded by glass near the back. I had a chance to talk to the brewmaster and he was very knowledgable and nice.
I found out that they are a sister company to rockies brewing company, so some of the beers like single track and buffalo gold are on tap. They had a few other ones that they just make. Looks like they keep their 7 flagship beers on tap, 2 on nitro, and 1 special one. I thought most of the beers were good, but there was a few that I didn't care for, and one that was really good. I got the sampler and they gave it to me for free because it was my birthday the day before. How nice. If your looking for beers that are out of the ordinary, this isn't the place.

The high spot of this brewery is probably the amount of space and ample seating around the brewery. A large bar and many tables and booths means we had no wait to be seated. The pub also had many TVs around (no some I look for in a brewery).
The beer selection is quite diverse but not to the quality of neighboring competitors. I tried single pours of many tap beers and couldn't find anything I was really sold on or would need to come back for.
They have a very large food menu, consisting of pretty ordinary pub food. The prices are nothing to celebrate.
All-in-all a nice pub worth visiting, but probably not your go to.

I just stopped in for beers since I was close by and it seemed easy and convenient enough.
I should have thought twice the moment the waitress looked less than pleased when I only wanted beer. Oh, I'm sorry, I thought this was a brewery. Turns out that's a stretch.
On beers alone, this place cannot stand.
I tried a flight, hoping to find a good beer to have a pint of and was less-than-impressed to unmoved by all of the beers. Essentially, these beers are light-bodied, lightly-flavored concoctions that seemed cheaply made.
If you are looking for good beer in Boulder there are TONS of better options.
