Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery Celebrates 15 Years
In celebration of fifteen years of business in Boulder, The Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery will be hosting a night of funk at the beautiful Boulder Theater to say thanks to the local community for all of their support. The Mountain Sun recently opened their third location, The Vine Street Pub, on Denver's booming 17th Street strip; adding to their two Boulder locations, The Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery and The Southern Sun. Since The Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery opened its doors in 1993, The Pub has been a favorite local gathering place, where music has always played an important role in creating the Pub's festive vibe.
For the October 18th event, which will benefit KGNU 88.5 FM and KGNU 1390 AM, The Pearl Street All-Stars will rock the house. The Pearl Street All-Stars is a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration featuring George Porter Jr. (The Funky Meters / Bass), Kyle Hollingsworth (The String Cheese Incident / Keyboards), Eric Krasno (Soulive / Guitar), Adam Deitch (Lettuce / Drums) & Hazel Miller (Hazel Miller Band / Vocals) and the 14th Street Horns ( Danny Sears - Panjea / Trumpet, Dominic Lalli - The Motet / Saxophone, and Jon Stewart - The Motet / Saxophone). All proceeds will benefit KGNU 88.5 FM & 1390 AM, Boulder County's only non-profit Community Radio Station. Fellow Colorado brewers Lefthand Brewing (who also turns 15 this month) and Avery Brewing Company will help The Mountain Sun supply the beer this year (with the Vine Street location now open and waiting for zoning permits to brew more beer on site, The Mountain Sun hasn't yet caught up to the increased demand!), offering three ales on special for $3 - Avery IPA, Lefthand Haystack Wheat and Mountain Sun's own Colorado Kind Ale.

About The Mountain Sun
Since opening its doors fifteen-years ago, the Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery has always believed community is the foundation of business. Our pubs are gathering places designed to feel like your living room where the community comes to eat affordable, fresh pub grub and drink finely crafted ales, where folks play Scrabble or debate politics or listen to free weekly concerts. Our mission has and always will extend beyond our pubs. We believe it is our responsibility to support non-profits and community-based action. On this, our fifteenth anniversary, we want to say thank you to our community. Our businesses begin with you.
