Mountain Sun is a fun, yet high quality pub and restaurant offering finely crafted beers for affordable prices in an environment that’s comfortable like your living room. Located on the “happening” Pearl Street, Mountain Sun is a great local hang out to enjoy a beer and one of their many staple menu items, all while playing a game of Scrabble.

This brewery, tucked away in a Boulder warehouse near the train tracks , includes an industrial-chic taproom with a seasonal outdoor patio serving tacos from McDevitt Taco Supply & rotating house-brewed beers. Secret Tip: The train is a celebrated sight at Sanitas – why? you ask. When the train rumbles past the tracks adjacent to the Sanitas back patio, the beer marked “train beer” on their menu is offered to patrons at half price. Where in the Great State of Craft Beer can you get a $2.50 cold one several times throughout the day?!
Situated in the heart of Boulder, the Rayback is a foodpark. A bar. An event space. A backyard party. A collective of all things Colorado.

There is a stage that’s primed for local talent to impress and a patio where you can show off your corn hole skills.
