NileGuide Expert Says:
The Mountain Sun is a great place to spend your evening. Squish into one of their booths with some local brews and a board game, and you'll be set for the night.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Check out the free music at the Mountain Sun on Sunday nights and at the Southern Sun on Monday nights, but be forewarned that the Mountain Sun especially can get quite crowded, so get there early if you want a table.
- Hippies, mountain bikers, and locals flock here for some of Boulder's best microbrews. The low-priced, healthy fare includes massive mixed-green salads, big burritos and even non-garden-variety burgers, like the Black and Blue burger, with blue cheese and blackened seasoning. The Junk burger is loaded with everything in the kitchen. Drink options include the coffee-alcohol Java Porter, or the XXX Pale Ale, a hoppy brew with flavor and bite.
