Popular site a block east of Pearl St. Mall. Great local beers on tap, generous servings from the restaurant. The food is beer pub quality. It is very popular. Grateful Dead art. Also visit sister restaurant, Southern Sun in Table Mesa.

Service was outstanding! Outdoor seating was sweet! Burgers were really tasty, good selection of beer. Atmosphere is a 'shared table' by the wait staff therefore you were always being helped if needed.

I think their South Boulder location may be able to manage the size. I do. It know the policy of the pub on large groups though. It is cash only so you will need a wad of bills or a local check.

They only take cash so I am guessing they do not sell gift cards. Try Avery brewery or Fate brewery that may sell gift cards

They do not take reservations and are often busy, but very accommodating while you wait. I'm not sure about gluten free.
