Loved the company of the staff while there. Very friendly and helpful. Small band was playing that night and they were great. The beers were great. Had a bourbon barreled maple porter that was amazing. Brewer (Kurt) was very friendly and was more than happy to show me around. Food was great, but thought cost was kind of high for a sandwich. I will go back here everytime I'm in Mt. Pleasant.

This place really has all the makings of a good brewpub: the location is fine, accessible, the bar is reasonably spacious, the decor is inviting, they have a cooler for to-go beers, and the brewery itself is visible behind the bar. The setup, in short, is perfectly acceptable. In fact, it reminds me a lot of Otter Creek in Middlebury.

That said, there are some huge problems. Foremost, the beer pretty much sucks. The only halfway decent beers I've had from them are their lagers: a Weizenbock and a caramel doppelbock were excellent, but everything else, including a few of their bottled beers, were terrible, borderline atrocious. I appreciate the experimentation with saisons and gruits, but I wish they would devote more of their energy to consistent flagships. They just don't taste good, and I feel like they have to know that.

The service is hit or miss. No one has ever been rude, but the staff are sometimes inattentive. There are clearly many regulars, and I'm not overly sensitive to being ignored, but when the beer is bad and I can't get anyone's attention to pay for it, it's frustrating.

Stopped here on the way back from a road trip. Small brew pub, wasn't a bad atmosphere just wasn't busy. The beers were good not great but worth the money. The food was reasonable and not bad. Not a huge selection just some typical sandwiches and starters. The service was ok, only one guy was working but he did a good job. Good variety on the beer selection, would have liked to seen maybe at least one bigger ABV beer to try. But over all a fun lil stop if your up by the Casino or something.

A: Actually pretty cool. The pub area overall was pretty small, decent sized bar with a few tables, large window overlooking the production area. Large garage door attached to bar area, gas fireplace. A few TV's and video games.

Q: I'll be honest, my expectations were not very high, I have had their beer in bottles several times and never really liked any of them. BUT I was in the area so I had to at least stop by, and I was very impressed. Their quality is on the right track and all the beers I sampled were pretty dang good.

S: Service was better than average. Wasn't the great but she kept up and was pretty knowledgeable.

S: Selection was very good. They had their regular brews, in addition they had a few seasonal, and specials on tap. They also had a small "store" section with all the MPBC stickers, hats and shirts.

Overall I was impressed. I would recommend MPBC to a friend and I'd stop by again.
