Good value for money but one of our beer selections was completely flat. Management swapped it for another beer and apologized, so we were happy overall.

We were there on a busy parents weekend. Overall we enjoyed our time. Drink service was good and food was decent bar food. We even had a drink accidentally do cartwheels off the tray onto our table and a few of us. The waiter was so sweet and humble we couldn’t fault the place.

I made reservations in advance with open table with no problems. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food arrived no too fast or late and was good. We were there over Parents Weekend so it was very crowded but didn’t feel like it. We were seated upstairs and ended up having a view of the Stampede, which was perfect.

They were very accommodating with regards to trying to seat us in a quiet area, and the service was good, but the food was not very good. The Reuben was burned and the meat was so salty it bordered on inedible. (We we’re surprised that it was served given how burned it was). The fish and chips had too much coating.

Nice brewery but nothing stands out as special. The Burgers were great. The pot pie was "fine" and the veggie burger was prettty good but it was offered on a lettuce wrap that was really a bunch of shredded lettuce on top, which made it very hard to eat.

Okay - Boulder - college town, I get it. But when I've been seated for 20 minutes and no one says "we'll be with you in moment" or "thanks for waiting, will be right with you", you walk out. If no stars could be given, they would. The worst non-dining experience in memory.

We used opentable to get us a spot at this brewery. Sitting outside on the Pearl Street Marker was wonderful. Our server was friendly and gave great recommendations. Our food came out quickly and was delicious as were our drinks. I would highly recommend this brewery to any of my friends for dinner and drinks.

Table reserve for 7 and we we were placed at a table for 6 with a chair at the end and it was very very tight but a table for 8 opened up and we were quickly moved to the larger space. Beer was awesome and everyone really enjoyed their food. We were there are the last supper before the Ironman and there was a special meal named for the Ironman which was especially thoughtful.

I'm going to be honest: the food here was not good. We ordered the pretzel bites, which were not like pretzels at ALL. They were more like wheat nuggets. The veggie burger was okay but mainly because of the topping - the burger itself was tasteless. The mediterranean salad was also only alright but would have been much better with a dressing like balsamic. Lastly the veggie burger came with tomato bisque and it was disgusting. I would only go here for beer.

The food was very good and so was the service. However, we made a reservation here because it looked to have an awesome Father's Day brunch menu. We were very disappointed to find that they stopped serving brunch many months ago. The manager came and apologized to us and offered to buy us a round of drinks. He said they have been battling Open Table for months to remove the brunch section from it's online menu, and for some reason they refuse to do so. Hey Open Table, why don't you go ahead and remove brunch from their offerings so as not to mislead your users? If you're looking for great craft beer and food, this place is great, but don't come here hoping for brunch.

I was anxious to try this restaurant for Mother's Day what a flop. Waited 35 minutes for appetizers and then waited another 30 minutes for dinner. I had the Mac & Cheese with chicken. They forgot to add the chicken they took it back and when they brought it back out to me the chicken was cold & slapped on top of the MAC & Cheese disgusting . Never coming back!!

The people running this place are the best--Dealing with them over the phone and in person was a pleasure, and the servers provided for our rather large party with friendliness and flexibility. We truly enjoyed this venue for a farewell-after-graduation Saturday lunch, and appreciated the staff and servers' desire to please. Our sandwiches and salads and other entrees all contained fresh and interesting ingredients, and were prepared and presented competently but unpretentiously. If you dine here, make sure someone in your party orders at least one of the many permutations of macaroni and cheese. We had the pulled pork mac and cheese, and it was DIVINE!

Five of us went to dinner a few nights ago looking forward to a good time and good food. We certainly had a good time but the food was horrible. Two of us had muscles and with fries and they had just dumped the fries on top of the pot of muscles and everything was overcooked. We tried the poutine and I don't think that they have ever had the dish to know what it is supposed to be like. Basically everything was tasteless and over cooked. Beer was good and the sword of us was adequate. We will never go back again

Waiter was very friendly but seemed out of it...
Very slow to bring appetizer and had to comp it after it came out with dinner. Slow to refill drinks and had to be reminded several times.

But he was nice and I think he may have been overwhelmed with the crowd. Food was very good and I love the location and TVs in case you want to watch a game or two.

Will go back!
