One of the most wonderful things about living and working in the Weld/Boulder County area of Colorado as a vegan or vegetarian is the plethora of choices available to you when it comes to eating out. One other thing that seems to be of vital importance to several Coloradoans is good beer.
In fact, at last count, there were more than 160 different microbreweries and more than 100 different brewpubs in the state of Colorado. The point is this: For anyone who is a beer lover and also eating a plant-based diet, you can have the best of both worlds.
This reviewer is no exception. When it comes to beer and vegan/vegetarian food, you won't find anybody more passionate about searching out the best haunts to quench both your appetite and your thirst. Which is why today the Pumphouse Brewery in Longmont, Colo. (just outside of Boulder, Colo.) is the topic of conversation.
The Pumphouse Brewery offers plenty of delicious vegan and vegetarian dishes and a patient and attentive staff that happily takes your order and promptly delivers your order hot, fresh, and just the way you like it. The only thing better than the vegetable risotto (a vegetarian dish) is washing it down with any of the choice specialty brews on the menu.
Each of the pints served at the Pumphouse Brewery is brewed fresh onsite in the large brewery vats that are visible from the dining area. The decor is outfitted with various pieces of firehouse memorabilia (hence the name "Pumphouse"). The adjoining Red Zone sports bar offers a cozy place to watch your favorite sports team and an arcade for the kids.
The Pumphouse Brewery offers an outdoor patio where you can enjoy an ice cold brew on one of Colorado's famed 300 days of sunshine. Families of all sizes and ages are welcome at the Pumphouse Brewery and you'll find people of every different demographic tipping back a cold one on any given day of the week.
But here's the real question: Is the Pumphouse Brewery worth a frequent visit? The answer to this is unequivocally yes; even if you're not a meat eater.
