Mountain Sun/Southern Sun] '''. Two locations in Boulder for your delight. The original Mountain Sun is located on the east end of Pearl Street while newer location, called the Southern Sun, is in South Boulder at the intersection of South Broadway and Table Mesa in the Table Mesa Shopping Center. Some excellent beers (particularly the Java Porter) and often excellent Boulder granola music.
Boulder Beer] '''. Claims to be Colorado's First Microbrewery, but there is no doubt that their beers have been around forever in Boulder. Brewery/Pub is located in north Boulder (in what always seemed an odd location) near the train tracks and off of Valmont near Foothills Parkway. They make great beers and have excellent happy hour deals.
Walnut Brewery] '''. Boulder's Original Brewpub that serves up a generous (and one of my favorites) heaping-high plate of Nachos. Many classic beers that Boulderites rave about years after they leave Boulder. Located in the heart of Boulder on Walnut St, near 11th. Parking can be a pain in this area; best to use the parking garage across the street and hope for validation of your ticket.
