In all my visits to the Boulder area I had never been to Boulder Beer. I realized I had missed nothing. What a completely lame selection of beers on-tap. Nothing out of the ordinary at all.

We had just eaten at Oskar Blues in Longmont so we didn’t try the food. And frankly the beer selection was so boring we just had one each and left.

The bar/eating area is fairly small… there is a patio for the warmer months. I felt like it didn’t feel like a eatery or a bar… the “brewery” was too present. It was like the brewery tour launch point-bar-restaurant-gift shop was all crammed into once space… maybe because it was.

Friendly service.

I have nothing else to add. It was almost pointless for us to stop.

Most filthy, disgusting brew facility I have ever seen. Actually saw a rat running around.

Showed up on a whim and it was bluegrass day with lots of pups on the patio. Got a really tasty buffalo burger. Although the menu selection wasn't very diverse, everything was good. Lots of hop forward/hoppy beers, which aren't my favorite but were good nonetheless.

Vibe:Great visit with out of town guests. Cool local feel. Unpretentious as opposed to some other Boulder snotty spots.
Quality: Solid pub menu executed well.
Service; Dave and Ethan gave us great info about the samples at the bar.
Food: Good veggie options. Yummy pretzels.
Selection: Good tap room only stuff. Cask aged choice that rotates.
Overall: Great live music on Thursdays. Awesome patio. Friendly staff.

Boulder Beer is one of the best breweries, top to bottom, in Boulder. The service here was quick and very good. Our order was accurate, and the food was delicious.

Their outdoor seating area was comfortable.

I can't wait for my next visit.
