Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery
1535 Pearl St
It wouldn’t be a downtown beer tour without a stop at Mountain Sun. It is down on the East End and definitely worth the stroll. Hang out at the back bar (where there almost always free fries) and grab a couple of tasters. If it is a nice day, the patio is a prime people watching spot.
Squared Pizza + Beer
1123 Walnut St
Squared Pizza + Beer is home to a branch of Boulder Beer, Colorado’s very first craft brewery (The original site of the brewery was a small farm northeast of Boulder.) Make sure to try a few of the Boulder Beer classics: Shake Chocolate Porter, Hazed Hoppy Session Ale, Mojo IPA and last but not least the legendary Buffalo Gold.
Oskar Blues Taproom

West End Tavern

Head across the street to the historic West End Tavern for some Colorado craft beer & BBQ. The Tavern is housed in one of the oldest buildings of Boulder, dating back to 1906 when it housed Boulder’s Police Station. Head up to the rooftop to take in the stellar Flatiron views.

2017 13th St
Almost right back where you started the trail, you’ll find the Bohemian Biergarten. German-style beer and pretzels are the name of the game at this European-style Gastropub. The beer here is not meant to be served in small portions, which is why we saved it for last. Enjoy a Das Boot as the grand-finale of your beer tour!
