Had just arrived in Boulder, walked the Pearl Street Mall and needed dinner. Quickly found Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery and snagged an outdoor seat. The glories of Boulder paraded in front of me while I sipped some real good beers. They offer free samples (sweet!). Pay only by cash or check but they do offer Karma envelopes if you... More

We split the Junk Burger and fries (we needed a snack because we are walking all over this town). The burger was great and the fries were lovely (I have a thing for fresh french fries).

Stopped by for free live music on Sunday evening and had a great experience. Service was friendly and the beers are wide-ranging and great tasting. I can't speak to the food as we only ordered beers, but the menu and food around us looked great. As a reminder, they do not accept credit cards so make sure you have some... More

Although we only dropped into this place for a drink and a bite to eat, we were brought a total of seven free tasters by our waiter!! Ended up staying for another drink - great decor and atmosphere too.

The bison burger was extremely tasty! The beer flights were fantastic, allowing a great sampling of the on tap brews. The only negative was the per table serving allotment. We sat for for over three hours but they cut us off after a total of six servings. Not sure how I feel about the cash only policy...

Stopped in the middle week and this place was super crowded ( a good sign)! We had some drinks, the "local" pizza, and the shaved pork sandwich. All were pretty good! The service was great and the prices reasonable. The parking was easy too! Great place and plan on coming back after some hiking!

In town for the day, saw the Flatirons, needed to rest and have a bite. Very cool that while you are waiting for a table you can sample the beer made on premises. Super friendly staff, they bend over backwards to serve you. We ordered the special....Manchego Burgers. So yummy. And messy. Odd thing is they only take cash or... More
