V-The Souther Sun is located in South Boulder in a strip-mall type shopping center near Neptune Mountaineering. The place is medium sized with a small patio out front. The vibe is heavily hippy, but that seems to be fading as Boulder loses its hippies to the suburbanites. Now you'll just as many families as stoners in there.

Q-The beers are of moderate quality. There are some really good ones that appear every now and again, Hop Vivant for example, but others are less impressive. I have never had a bad beer from the Southern/Mountain Sun empire, but many of them just aren't that good. That being said, the beers pair well with the food.

Ser-The servers are almost always friendly, usually prompt, and mostly knowledgeable about the beer and food menu. They can get a little spaced out at times but I have never had one completely bullocks an order. They also offer multiple sizes and use appropriate glassware.

Sel-There are usually about a dozen Sun beers on tap and a few guest handles. It is one of the bigger selections for a brewery/brewpub in town, actually. Everything from Belgian styles to IPAs.

F-The food is probably the high point of the Sun empire. It is tasty, cheap, and made with lots of love. The offerings are mostly bar-type dishes, but the food never feels overly fried or fake like a lot of bars. I would eat here instead of the Rock Bottom everyday for example.

O-The Southern Sun is losing some of its hippy charm as the years march on, but it still serves its purpose as a friendly hangout with decent beer and good food.

This place is great. There is often live music and the company there is very friendly. The beer is some of the best around too. The food,although simple, is quite delicious. It is a great place to meet friends,drink beer and socialize.there is also a good selection of board games to play.

THere is always a snack that is satisfying on the menu and a beer that a bartender will explain to you. If you know what your tastes are, it's not hard to get somethiing that will appease. The atmosphere is fantastic with students familes and sounds abounding. Usually the doors are open with plenty of sunshine to compliment your beverage. I enjoyed going here to get homework done. It's true I never finished a major accomplishment while drinking at the Southern Sun but I sure did get over whatever rut I was facing. A little fun and a little work, I have never had a bad experience. Except when I got used to certain beer and the selection changed. Necessity is the mother of creation tho, and I would be forced to try something different. A friendly face always held my hand through the selection process.

Not too easy to spot from Broadway, this brewpub has the signature Boulder atmosphere. There are paintings on the walls from local artists, people playing boardgames, and sometimes, live music. There's also a distinct absence of televisions (which I'm fine with). The food is pretty good, and being in Boulder, there are a lot of vegetarian and organic options. Dollar taco night reigns supreme.

The staff is timely and relatively knowledgeable. The beer, while not world-class, is definitely above average.. I recommend getting a pint of Colorado Kind.

Overall, Southern Sun is a great place to hang out and grab a few pints.

This was one of my favorite bars in Boulder when I used to live there. The atmosphere is pretty good. It is very relaxed, and that is what I prefer when I am going out to have a brew. The service is acceptable. They have some really good deals; dollar taco night has yet to be beaten. Their beers are pretty cheap and pretty good, though not amazing, at $4.50 a pint. They have live music a lot, which is usually a plus. I would highly recommend checking this place out if you are in Boulder; it is a good representation of that town.

This place is avoidable with other fine breweries and bars in town.

Poor customer service and screaming children seem to be the norm.Many people have told me they were refused drink service because they were no longer eating food ( we're talking a second round).
Focus is on high turnover rather than quality and customer service.

I have had both good times and bad there but I generally enjoy many of the other bars in town,including the Pub they opened directly beneath the So. Sun in the same building (Under The Sun) Much better.

It's been a while but visited this place after told the wait at Midnight Sun was 1.5 hours. I think they have a few more beer selections at this location as well. It's located in a strip mallaway from the main downtown area, but never the less is an excellent place to hit if you don't want to wait during the peak hours. I had a Nirto stout while there and it was fantastic. The food was decent and other beer selcetion was good as well. Mostly their brews but they do feature taps from (mostly) CO breweries. Food was a bit high, but more than likely in line with the general food prices in Boulder.

After several years, I finally made it to a third member of the Mountain Sun family.

Southern Sun is in a strip mall in South Boulder. To make up for the strip mall feel, Southern Sun has gone over the top with very Boulder tapestries, paintings and other artwork. The duct-work is painted with vines and the carpet has a a paisley pattern.

I was there on a Tuesday night and was surprised by the size of the crowd. Even with the large number of people, service was quick. Like other Mountain Sun pubs, we had multiple servers rather than one who was dedicated to us. All of them were quite friendly.

On this night, there were 20 house beers and a lone guest beer from Avery. Three of the taps were nitro. Food is the same as other Mountain Sun locations. In the Boulder tradition, it has a large number of vegetarian options for the non-meat eaters. My black bean burger was quite tasty. For Boulder, prices are very reasonable.

Overall, I'm glad I came here. Of the thee Mountain Sun family members I've visited, this ranks third. That said, I'm quite fond of it.

very open dining room with a long bar. amazing tap selection (resinous rye, and java stout on nitro tap were my personal highlights). plenty of space between seating and free wi-fi. kinda hippie but not really. more like just random things were tye dye.

tried five of the house brews and all were satisfactory, and a few were excellent. had to get some to go.

service was quick and friendly.

selection: very wide variety of beers, including a few types of ipa's and pales.

reasonable prices, and even got a slight hook up.

Bigger and more spread ou then the more northern "Sun" location. Beautiful views through the large windows that are all of this place. The place is loaded with hippy/Grateful Dead/Jamband type murals, paintings, artwork, and posters, loved the feel/vibe. Add plenty of quality brews, the same crunchy menu of tasty afood choices as the other location, similar friendly staff/service, a large outside eating/drinking are and you have another must visit spot if in the Boulder area. I'll be back upon my next Boulder visit. (God I hope my daughter gets into the university of Colorado!)

Stopped by here for some lunch, so there weren't that many people there, which made for a relaxing afternoon. The atmosphere was lovely, with plenty of open space, cozy couches, 70's rock and roll posters on the wall, and pink floyd on the radio. They played pretty much all of dark side of the moon. What really sealed the deal was the constant picture windows that let in the sun and the view of the mountains. Lovely.

Service was great, but a bit weird. Our server (Skye?) was one of the better servers I've had in my entire life. Her humor, yet appropriate distance made our stay all the better. But, in total, four people stopped by our table. This led to some mix-ups, but it all worked out well in the end.

Food was pretty good. I got a buffalo burger with blue cheese and barbecue sauce, smothered in onions. The bro got a turkey baguette that really did it for him.

Beer was solid too. We tried six between the three of us, all were either tasty to awesome. The FYIPA was awesom, and the nitro java porter was about as complex and tasty as one could ask for. Solid!

I wish I lived closer to this place. Beer and food were great, and I felt right at home. Check this place out for sure if you have the chance. It's really the complete package.

Late afternoon lethargy sets in, and we're an hour out of Denver. I feel like we accomplished so little time spent between brewpubs visited, from there to there to there to here now. And as much as I wanted to see the Mountain Sun next, people were talking like it was going to be a mess by the time we'd get there this Friday. As such, we opted for Southern Sun, which is like Mountain Sun Lite, or so they say, and on the way back to Denver kind of...

Located above some Mexican joint at the edge of a strip mall we blew right past, it's connected to everything and everything to it. Brewing equipment behind glass off the entranceway. 3 booths sans tables for waiting along the front, or you can go outside and wait at the tables of shame there in the shadow of a big ornamental and probably not functional grain silo.

Long wood bar on the inside wall seats about 20, and a few people with elbows in on the ends (you don't need to sit necessarily, you just need an elbow on the bar as claimed space). Big wooden pillared overhang piece above with potted plants atop. 16 Taps in a row on the barback, plus 3 more on one end, and 2 on the other. House taps printed on a horizontal blackboard above with a hot air balloon mural in the center (8 & 8 on both ends), shelved glassware & stuff to both sides, and all sorts of stickers on the bar back wall.

Lots of windows above white walls with old Dead & jam band prints framed, plus rugs & tapestries & painted pieces, and crazy red floral carpets all throughout. Green drop lamps over non bar area, spots on tracks and sunken spots over the bar. Exposed ducts painted white with vines, running up and across everywhere. Tunes. Potted plants on the bookshelves, over pieces of the barback, and bar overhang.

About 2 dozen booths & tables in all. The far corner holding tables seating 2 & 4, and closer in, 5 booths on the back wall sharing benches + long tables inconveniently bottlenecking the room just off the bar. We found space on the end of one of them tables but were bumped pretty quickly as we were not on the waiting list. Some lady and her 3 year old came and took that space. Fuckin' 3 year old drinkin', I don't know, I think the Blackberry Wheat! Banished to the "Living room" in the front corner past the bar, just a small area with a few leather "I can sleep here" couches and chairs.

16 house beers in all. A few wheats (Ruckus Wheat, Arctic Wheat & specialty fruit Blackberry Wheat), a few Pale Ales & IPA's (FYIPA, Illusion Dweller IPA, Swan Song IPA, nitro XXX Pale Ale, nitro Colorado Kind Ale), some darks (Pearl Street Porter, Isadore Java Porter, Old School Stout, nitro Thunderhead Stout), and some lighters (Jah'Mon Ginger, Quinn's Golden Ale, Annapurna Amber, Big Krane Kolsch). Quite the list, and they've got a single guest tap just now, being Dale's Pale Ale, usually a few more that that. Way too many beers for a sampler (not really), not even sure they'd entertain it anyway.

I had the Pearl Street Porter (roasty dark and malty sweet), and Ed had the Arctic Wheat (lemongrass & spearmint, Ed got the lemongrass and I totally got Spearmint). I asked up at the bar the difference between the Arctic & Ruckus Wheats (Could you describe the ruckus, sir?). The answer I got was "Well, we don't have the Ruckus Wheat, so there you go", not so much the answer I was looking for. I may have gotten "Is there anybody here who can actually tell me about the beers?" shitty with the kid behind the front counter. Apparently, I found the right person, the Ruckus is done up with coriander & chamomile. Oh, thank you. Ed is illin', so it doesn't look like I'm goin' to get a second beer here, I'll have to fill in some blanks with the beers at the GABF tomorrow (had the Swan Song Pale Ale, nicely floral, and the FYIPA, good citrus, a very grapefruit thing). Don't feel bad about adding here talk of their beers off premises from the brewpub proper, as they run beer back and forth regularly between the Mountain & Southern Sun locations.

Liked what I had, would've liked to have tried more as they do a range within multiple styles. I haven't seen a brewpub with this many beers on since, what, Great Dane? This was a little too much of a Friday night after work scene for my liking, but that's when we came through. Next time, and it'll be Mountain Sun and a whole lot earlier at that.

Stop three on the pre-GABF tour. Again, this place is a cash only establishment.

Atmosphere: Much more family oriented, commercial atmosphere than Mountain Sun. But one would expect that by location alone. Mountain Sun is a small, side street shop a block and a 1/2 from campus. Southern Sun is in a commercial complex/shopping center. Much larger, more spread out location.

Quality: Solid to very good beers. Very enjoyable. I was on a bit of an IPA kick so I had some more of the FY IPA. It was great.

Service: Not nearly as good as Mountain Sun. It seemed like they had less staff for more tables. Not nearly as quick and on point. That said, the service was by no means bad, just not as good.

Selection: If my count was correct they had 12 different beers on tap. They had a few additional beers that Mountain Sun didn't have, but mostly the same.

Food: Had some samplers and apps here as it was the end of the night. Pretty good.

All-in-all a very good pub. I liked the overall atmosphere of Mountain Sun better, but no real complaints here. I will be back next time I'm in Boulder.

This place is almost, but not quite, as excellent as the main location, Mountain Sun on Pearl Street downtown. The atmosphere is a bit more industrial and the crowd is a bit less hip - older, more kid-oriented, and more mainstream. The service isn't quite as crisp either, though it remains good.

But the outstanding beer and food is the same here as at Mountain Sun, making this a must-see. If you can't get downtown, or you can't stand the hippie student vibe on Pearl Street, make this your stop.

Or better yet, do like we did - go to both.

This is another part of the Mountain Sun franchise. This one is located in South Boulder on Table Mesa and Broadway.

It is a little larger than teh Pearl Strett location. Good amount of seating along with a good sized bar.

Similar atmosphere. No televisions, just music food and beer. They have live music and jam sessions a couple nights a week.

Good pub food, tasty burger and fries.

Very nice beer selection. Good variety of house brewed ales. Many styles to choose from. In February they have a stout month and offer over fifty different stouts on tap. $2.50 pints at happy hour.

This was our first stop on our evening Boulder pub crawl. This place is a bit hard to find if you are on S. Broadway, because it's actually above a Mexican joint from street level, and there are no signs pointing it out. Had to ask the helpful guys in the gas station next door to guide us. Anyway, the atmosphere inside is cool. Lots of tables, a long bar, and lots of funky hippy-esque and retro artwork and rock memorabilia. Service was great. They have a system in place where no one does the same job, so our waiter also tended bar and cleared tables. Kept them busy at least. They had lots of good beers on tap, and at least three were nitro. It seemed like they had a wide selection, but there were a lot of style overlaps, like two porters, two IPAs, etc. I went with the Pearl Street Porter (ok) and the Colorado Kind IPA nitro (good). Everyone agreed that the food was very good. The buffalo wings had an awesome smoky bbq sauce, and the selection of burger toppings were unusual and delicious. I can see why this place is our friends' favorite hangout, as it's right down the street from their house. If I could walk, I'd be there often too.

So. Sun = Mtn. Sun with elbow room!!

Basically I would copy and paste my review from the Mtn Sun and add that there is a ton more room and the place doesn't get as loud. There is even a back corner with couches surrounding a coffee table; a great place to chill after riding Super Walker! Food and beer are on par with Mtn. Sun. Another added benefit is a bar with barstools....ingenious!

If you are out for GABF, make sure you stop by and check out Hop Month. October is reserved for the love of hops and they (in the past) have brought in several heavy hitters from all over the nation.

Had a friend recommend that I stop in here on my way out of town and decided that I should head thier advice. For some reason I had trouble finding, dont know if it was me, probably was this ws a long trip, but anyway I was relived when I finally made it in. They seeme to really know what was going on here. Lots of great local flavor here. I had a milk stout and a double IPA when I was there and both were great. And the prices were perfect. I was really shocked I had not been here before, but it had been a couple years since I had been out here so I guess things change, but anyway I would have to say you should try and stop in here if you et the chance, this place was pretty good.

I visited Southern Sun just before Christmas in 2006. Located in a pretty busy strip mall, the parking was a little crazy but that may be due to the holidays. Through the front door, two brewers were working in the small brewing area. A large area to sit and a pretty large bar. The staff was very friendly and gave us a lot of suggestions and even a few tasters before we settled on a few different pints.

A great selections of beers with about 14 beers on tap. Unsure of how many regulars but they did note that they had a bunch of seasonal beers. Mostly American styles with three different IPA’s. They had two different stouts, a java and a sweet stout as well. A few basic light and amber beers as well. They also had a really good Belgium Strong Ale that was about 9%. We got to speak to one of the brewers on his break. From what he said, that was there first time brewing a Belgium beer, and it turned out REALLY good. So good I had to try a pint for myself.

We ordered food which was basic bar food of nachos, burgers, sandwiches. We ordered a plate of Queso and a chicken sandwich that hit the spot after a pint. The staff was very helpful and ultra friendly but after reading some other reviews I would note that it wasn’t too busy so I supposed that help. I gave a full rating as they definitely deserved it and the brewer was nice enough to come talk to us.

Overall I was very happy with our visit in Southern Sun. Fantastic staff, good beers with a good selection. Worth a trip for sure.

This is easily my favorite of Boulder's brewpubs: always worth a visit to see what new brews they've got on tap and to do some quality BoBo people watching. Southern Sun was packed last Monday night, people literally hovering over my friend's and my seats, waiting for us to clear out. This makes for a fun, social atmosphere that is aided by the space itself: a good mix of bar seating, comfy couches, a deck, and wooden booths. The pub is lined with windows that look out onto both Broadway and Table Mesa, and the natural light compliments the dimly lit lamps for good ambience.

The service, like that at Mountain Sun (Southern's sister brewery), is hit or miss. Since servers aren't expected to take care of specific tables, but rather help any customer that they come across, I've found the folks here to be either really attentive when things aren't too busy or completely distracted and overwhelmed by chaos when things pick up.

With fifteen or so house brews, the major drawback of this place is their quality control. All of the beers are OK but none are great (with the exception of the award-winning doppelbock). They serve the beers several degrees too cold, which flattens the taste of all of their brews--though it may make for easier drinking. The six-beer sampler plate is a good way to go, since I'm not sure that any single one of the brews is worth investing a pint's worth of energy.

Certainly worth a stop after a day of climbing, biking, or doing whatever around Boulder.

We stopped in twice to Southern Sun last week. It was the closest quality stop to my buddy's new digs in Boulder, so stumbling home from here was a better option. We went on both a Wednesday and a Friday. Be forewarned, children eat free on Wednesdays. The place was crawling with little ones in Crocs.

Like many places in Boulder, this one should lose atmosphere points since it appears to have borrowed interior decoration advice from smoked up hippie college kids. There are concert posters, hand paintings, and old panchos on the walls. However, this seems to dress up what would be a stoic and boring strip mall interior. We stuck to the outside with incredible views of the Flatirons. We watched three different weather systems and the sunset while enjoying brews. There is even a fat view from the men's room. Because of that, they get extra points. None of the other beer places in town had that great feel to it because of the background. I didn't even notice that we were only a few meters from a parking lot of a strip mall, honest.

They had about eight or nine brews on tap, with quite a few available in nitro. (When one doesn't want something in nitro, you get a few "you sure you don't want that stout via nitro" looks) All tasted fresh and delicious. Stout, porter, hefe, a smattering of ales were all available. All were well done.

Service was the best during our stay in Colorado. On the surface, they appeared to be more on the crunchier side; and those folks are usually slower. They were extremely well informed about the brews, were quick and friendly. They used a group waitstaff concept, where anybody cruising by the table could take care of you. There are places where this doesn't work (Ram's Head in Baltimore) but here it worked excellently. From what I understand, they also all have to work the kitchen and the bar as well as the tables, so they are all cross-trained and all knowing.

Food was pub grub--More average than anything else with really no outstanding things either in the apps or sandwich area. The chicken sandwhich was small, dry, and without the tasty mayo advertised. The chicken quesadilla was limp, packed with only some chicken and cheese. The much better focus was on the brews.

Overall, this is a great place to stop while in Boulder. You'll spend enough time touristing around Pearl Street and should enjoy the rest of town...

Stopped in for lunch and some beers after hiking in Eldorado Canyon. I had been to Mountain Sun before, but never this location. Access is much easier as it is in a strip mall and parking is plentiful. Located between the North Face shop and Neptune Mountaineering, just in case you forget you are in Boulder. This one is much bigger than Mountain Sun, with a very long bar, plenty of seating inside, and a patio with a few picnic tables outside. Service is taken care of by whoever happens to be in your area at the time, but they do a great job. Menu is at least very similar to the Mountain Sun location - lots of vegetarian options, but they make a mean burger too. Beer is widely varied, and I enjoyed everything I had. This has all the perks of Mountain Sun, with the added bonus of more space and easy parking. I could see this quickly becoming one of my favorite Boulder hangouts.

Stopped in while in the area during November, 2004. This place was hard to find for an out of towner. We had to call and ask for directions (turns out we were right across the street). This place is located in the back part of a strip mall at a very busy intersection just south of Boulder. We arrived for a late dinner, about the time tables usually begin to open up. But, not at this place, it was *packed*...an hour wait. We weaved out way between tables through the single large dining area to the waiting area (four couches), which was also overflowing with people. The atmosphere spoke of confusion. It was so noisy we had to speak loudly to be heard and there seemed to be no service-person designated to handle the beer requests. When I finally did get a beer, I found out why this place was so busy. Wow, the beer was divine. Well balanced and full of flavor. This made the long wait tolerable. Once seated, our waitress was pleasant and our food arrived expediently. The food was tasty and the prices were reasonable. All in all, an interesting experience, but not one I'm likely to repeat. As I said it's noisy, plus I found the tables to be packed in a bit tight. I guess they're trying to accommodate as many people as possible. If you're in Boulder, it's worth a visit. I won't become a regular when I move to the area later this spring.
