With a tap line-up like that, crowds would gather even if the bar just offered Totino's party pizza as sustenance. But the food at Mountain Sun is worthy of attention, too.

The well-executed, classic pub eats satiate both drunken and sober appetites. The pub also serves up a variety of meatless options, catering to that inevitable part of the Boulder community that who adheres to a vegetarian or vegan diet. But the hummus and black bean soup deserve the attention of omnivores, too.
