Mentor warned me that this place would be "somewhat crunchy." Ha! Man, let not bohemianism deter me from anything, especially beer.
The space was, at base, a storefront, longer than wide, with lots of fabric work and colorful painting on the walls. The best was the painted hops vines running the length of the exposed ducting in the overhead. Booths lined the right side, headed aft, with standard tables in the center and a long bench with tables fronting it on the left side. The kitchen was three-quarters of the way aft with a passageway to the left leading to the lavatories and the brewhouse, behind glass. The chalkboard with the day's offering listed looked like a mosaic. Very artistic!
I had a sampler that included a java porter; English IPA; American IPA; Jah Mon Ginger (!); a light Golden Ale; and a double IPA. My pick? The ginger beer, mais oui! It really was all good and enough to entice me to come back. In fact, it made me realize that I should visit the Mountain and Pacific states more often.

I regularly hang here. Great beer, good food, and amazing service, never pretentious and always let you sample beers. If you are visiting Boulder this place is a must! If you live here you already know this place. I also love Southern Sun and Under the Sun. Ask about the Karma Envelope...

Hmm, a hippie place in Boulder? Go figure. I stopped and did a flight and all were decent with the IPAs being the stars of the show. Place had a laid back atmosphere and service was good, selection decent. Consider the broad range of beers listed I might have to stop again and if you're in Boulder it probably doesn't hurt to stop.

Went on a recent trip to CO. Went to Avery before and some people suggested this place for dinner. Place was busy on a Tuesday but got seated after about 10 min wait. They had app 20 diff. drafts all brewed in house. I got an American stout and a very good burger for about 13 bucks. Best part was the service. About every 5-10 min our server brought over a free taster of a different beer. Great experience and vibe. Would love this place in my Hometown.

Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery was a great spot to meet up with friends and grab a cold draft. I visited during Stout Month and was able to taste most of the stouts on draft. The beer prices are comprable to other places and the staff is friendly. I would recommend.

Tried this brewery/restaurant on a friend's recommendation from his last visit to Boulder. The place is small and the tables are packed a little tight. The place seemed to be very popular because even on a Sunday night it was packed. We were the last groups to get a table without a wait. The beer selection is decent, but not huge. The beers themselves were not bad. The food was good, but nothing that would blow you away. Our server was pleasant but a little slow. May have been due to how busy the place was that night. Overall a decent experience at reasonable prices. Not sure if I would go back, more because there are so many places to try in Boulder than that that I did not like the place.

Visited on 10/10/12. GABF Week.
We had stopped in Mountain Sun to meet up with friends for lunch before we started brewery hopping.
A: The place has really laid back vibe, great homey mellow feel to it. Its a lot more brewpub than brewery as the bar area only had 5 stools but many tables for food/beer patrons.
Q: The quality of the beers were decent, no one had any complaints and while some beers were good,, most that the group tried were acceptable.
S: We had gotten there right before noon and the place was easily 3/4 full but our servers were very friendly, prompt, and knowledgable about the beers.
S: Selection was very good, had almost 20 taps of in house beers that offered a wide selection. It was pretty impressive especially after seeing their small brewing system. Also offered other selections from local CO breweries too.
F: Food was really good, nobody had any complaints at all. Had a burrito which was not only made with fresh flavors but worth the 8 dollars they were charging.
V: Half Pints/Pints/Flights were all reasonably priced as was the food too.
Overall, this is a place that does well with the locals and I can see why after having visited. Definitely a stop worth making when in the Boulder area.

love this place. always crowded and chaoticly buzzing. not at all relaxing, but a nice spot for a meal and a few brews. huge rotating selection of beers for such a small place, and they are all pretty darn good. service makes this place, smoe of the happiest staff of all time, happy to take time detailing the beers and the food menu. we even got plenty of free beer samples without asking. neat crowd too, always someone keen to chat about anything in there. looks like a pretty small operation, you can see the kettles from the back near the restrooms. they do a really excellent business.

This place was highly recommended so my husband and I knew we had to stop here on our "beercation." Vibe was...well, college-hipster oriented. Everywhere I looked I saw MacBooks, bowl haircuts and peace sign patches. Not really "bad"...just not my scene, I guess. I got over it quickly when I saw the beer selection. Simply AWESOME. I think in terms of selection/quality, this brewpub was one of my favorites in Colorado. Samplers were big, so I'd recommend sharing them if you can.
Service was great...very attentive staff. Prices were a bit much for what you got, but not outrageous. Food menu was a tad limited, but good. I wish I lived closer so I could try out more of their seasonal/one time brew stuff. Overall, a good establishment and experience.

WOW! This place is a real treat!
Located in the downtown area of Boulder, you might walk right by it if you are not paying attention.
It is a bit small, so getting a table took about 15 minutes. However, the waitstaff allured me to stay by giving me a free pint while I waited.
They have GREAT beer (they won at GABF for their KIND beer). I wish I could have tried them all.
The atmosphere is very laid back, with orginal art on the wall. Many people were playing games or just kicking back.
The service was swift and I LOVED my portabella sandwich, which was very reasonable for being in downtown Boulder. This is a "must hit" for the beer and the vibe. I look forward to visiting this place agian.
