Had a great burger here, then a day or two later I returned with a friend for a second try. Very much enjoyed the place again, and my beet root salad was perfect for someone trying hard not to over-eat. There were a number of interesting "light" options on the menu, as well as hearty brewpub fare one might expect... More

We stopped into the Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery to try their stouts (brewed in-house) and ended up having dinner as well (bison burgers are great). The staff is very nice - very accommodating and friendly. This is a real funky place with a laid-back vibe. Note: CASH ONLY - credit cards are not accepted.

I gave this only three stars only because I am so limited in what I can eat, and this just isn't a good place for me. That being said, they were SO friendly here, SO accommodating. We arrived on a Sunday at noon (beautiful Sunday at that in Boulder) with a party of seven. They fed us French fries (home... More

The service is great, the beer is great, the food is great and there's a pretty wide variety on the menu. Daily specials keep it interesting.

Great beer selection and the best burgers in Boulder. Southern Sun and Under the Sun are also favorites.

So friendly here! We went as a family of 4 on a Friday night around 6:30. It was busy and there was a 20 minute wait but the host told us to go to the bar and sample some free beer and fries. So the wait went by quickly. I had the coffee stout and my husband had some blackberry... More

Stopped by for lunch and it was amazing. We were knew to their beers and they brought us more free samples than we actually paid for so we could find our perfect glass. Lunch was awesome too!

The beer was very good. I had their double IPA and FYIPA, both were well done and refreshing. The steak sandwich was delicious. Make sure to bring cash or a check, they don't except credit cards.

Boulder is the birthplace of a small group of brewpub restaurants that build unmatchable customer service through delivery of great beer and great food via an amazing system of staff collaboration. The Mountain Sun is the keystone pub started in the 1990's, and there are now Sun Pubs in Boulder (Mountain, Southern and Under the), Denver and Longmont. The food... More
