Beer here: Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery

Page 3 of 3

What makes Mountain Sun truly special, though, is the community vibe that Kevin Daly, the spot's owner, has managed to create. Beneath woven tapestries and Boulder-themed kitsch, a cross-section of the neighborhood gathers for parties, dates and occasional live music.

I now consider Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery a perfect social prop -- a place that alleviates potential awkwardness of a great manner of get-togethers so thoroughly, I find myself returning again and again. Find out why when my review is posted here tomorrow, along with a slide show of the restaurant.

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.

Laura Shunk was Westword's restaurant critic from 2010 to 2012; she's also been food editor at the Village Voice and a dining columnist in Beijing. Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
