This pub, along with the small family of others around Boulder County, is an institution. Great beer, solid pub food, and an energetic atmosphere make this a must visit on Pearl Street.

Great food and drink. Interesting cooperative tipping and service. Only complaint is the initial bill was grossly incorrect. Check your bill closely!

Great service! Ryan took the time to discuss beers with us and we were able to sample as many beers as we wanted until we found one we loved. The food was also great! Highly recommend.

The food was very average and I honestly wouldn’t bother eating here again, but I’m giving five stars because I enjoyed the different types of beer and the service was amazing. They let you try their beers while you wait for a table and they...More

I think their South Boulder location may be able to manage the size. I do. It know the policy of the pub on large groups though. It is cash only so you will need a wad of bills or a local check.

They only take cash so I am guessing they do not sell gift cards. Try Avery brewery or Fate brewery that may sell gift cards

They do not take reservations and are often busy, but very accommodating while you wait. I'm not sure about gluten free.
