First: the beer. MBC makes some fantastic hop-forward beers, each of which has a profile (between the malt and the water) quite unique. MBC brews are instantly identifiable, and more importantly, delicious.

Second: the brewery. The facilities are relatively small, but the staff is very friendly and open. They've got long communal tables for the samples (no food), which you can get as a flight of 4 or a flight of 8. You can get a decent selection of their beer on the premises, including very limited brews (oddly, no growlers). There is also a corner with some childrens' games and books, which is great for family trips to the brewery.

The main room has an open window looking into the brewery itself, so if you can't get a tour, at least you can see their operation.

If you're near the area, there's no reason not to swing by MBC for a visit.

Upon entering the taproom, I turned to my wife and said "This place smells delicious". All of the beer samples throughout the place created a citrusy hop smell in the air! It was crowded and busy in the middle of the afternoon, but I grabbed a Lunch and found a nice quiet bench next to the viewing area to taste and take notes. They had several of their beers on taps and a few bottles in the cooler as well. Nice viewing area of the brewery operation.
