The food and atmosphere were good; however, I was a bit disappointed in the beer. The Scottish Ale wasn't bad, but their Backdraft Imperial Stout had no characteristics of an imperial. No roastiness. It was slightly sweet w/ light/medium body feel. The 9.7% ABV was well hidden.

Went here on a sunday afternoon with my gf and my dog. Found a table on the patio, lots of open space overlooking downtown longmont. Host who sat us took our drink order and brought my dog some water which was really cool of him. Our actual server only came by once to check on us after we had already gotten served, I overheard another server say that they all pool tips so Its not a big deal. After we had a flight of 5 beers our server showed up and asked if we wanted our bill which I thought was kinda rude since most servers would first ask if we were doing ok or needed anything else. We took our bill since we had a couple more breweries to hit up in the area. The beers we did have were slightly above average plus they had a ton of bottled beer from other local and national breweries. We didn't have any food but I looked through the menu and it seemed to offer a wide variety of things. Prices were below the average of most places, I would go back there again for the nice patio, good selection and value.

So..5 bucks for an Imperial Stout mixed from the last 8 years worth of batches! Best sweet potato fries ever! I was here right at opening on a Monday on a beer trip from Minnesota. Pints are 4.50 for in house. Fantastic prices for guest cans/bottles. 4.50 for Racer 5. 5 bucks for Union Jack. 4.50 for SKA MH.

Upon arriving at Pumphouse, it appeared to be the cookie cutter type place you find in malls that put out standard and uninspired fare to initiates who want to splurge a little beyond the macro realm. Boy was I wrong. This lineup was solid, although I really enjoyed the barrel aged beer on tap and their IPA was good as well. Service was satisfactory and selection was ok, but not great. I recommend doing a flight here and ignoring the decor, it is not what it seems. While I wouldn't say it isn't on par with some of the best in the country, but it was a pleasant surprise.

cool spot right in longmont. huge addition on the place makes it feel a little less than cozy, but a cool layout and a nice big bar are in place. nice selection of beers, about ten or 12 on tap, and an extensive food menu. service was good, lots of free tastings, and the quality of the beer was high. i enjoyed a nice scottish ale and a 6 year blend cherry stout. had a big bacon mushroom bison burger that was cooked perfectly and topped with homemade beer mustard. lovely. took home a growler of double ipa for only 13 bucks. good prices, good beer.
