I made a day trip to Boulder and went to Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery for lunch. Arrived there shortly after they opened around 11:30 AM after walking up and down Pearl Street, checking out all of the different stores and finding myself in complete awe of the magnificent beauty of the Rocky Mountains that serve as a backdrop.
There is a good amount of seating and the brewery tanks can be found in the back. The service here was outgoing, friendly, helpful, resourceful and very attentive. Staff here appear to "pitch in" in all facets of serving and food preparation, which is a rather unique approach. It clearly works and is quite effective. Things started to get really busy as we were leaving.
The vibe and atmosphere here is laid back, as is most of Boulder. They have some board games like Trivial Pursuit, Connect Four, Scrabble, etc. to help pass the time.
The beers are awesome and super fresh. I started out with a Java Stout that was tasty. There was about 15 or so draft options that include F.Y.I.P.A., Annapurna Amber, Colorado Kind Ale, Java Porter, XXX Pale Ale, Blackberry Ale, Quinn's Golden Ale, Illusion Dwellar IPA, Lil Williy, Smoke Screen Porter, Old School Irish Dry Stout, Cleveland Brown, Swan Song and Old Skippy. There are also three "guest handles" too like Avery Maharaja.
Food was really good. I started with the Spinach Soup and got the Spicy Pollo Asada Burrito with green chili. All of the food I sampled was flavorful.
You have the option to order beers in either 8 oz, 16 oz and 48 oz. I always like to see this at a brewery.
What else is there to say about this place? I really enjoyed my visit here. Definitely recommended if you are in Boulder.

This place gets five stars for the beer I haven't been able to stop thinking about since my visit: Bourbon Addict Imperial Coffee Stout.
That beer was perfection and consumed my thoughts and cravings during my four-day trip to Boulder last month. I want more. I need more. It keeps calling me, man. *Pookie voice
This beer was bursting with bourbon notes, oak, dark malt, toffee, vanilla, caramel and of course, coffee, but it all worked so damn well together. Despite the high alcohol content, it was smooth, creamy and full-bodied. It really was a work of art.
I also must commend the brewers here for the Belgian Black IPA, as that too was superb. These two beers stole the show.
As for the food, I only snacked on a few nachos, but found them to be packed with plenty of flavor.
But you don't need food when you have Bourbon Addiction. I have the Bourbon Addiction. I need my fix.

Me and my Corn Dog went here on our Colorado trip. Definitely a must if you are in Colorado. Such a great vibe here! Lots of local support. Its pretty lit up with art inside, and outside is a little patio with live street musicians everywhere. Had a flight of almost all their beers, great big selection, the food was very innovative and delicious, our server was very cool/friendly. Its a good thing we got there early because it started getting packed around 5pm. For sure one of my favorite beer spots in Colorado to date.

The food is good for bar food with a lot of vegan options. The service was lacking when we went in, and it wasn’t even busy. Wouldn’t want to see it when it gets packed at night. There is a wide range of beer styles, but nothing truly outstanding. A Boulder institution, but it won’t hurt you to miss it.
