Very spacious, including a nice long bar area, lots of outside seating and a nice area behind the bar to hang out as well. Can fit a fairly large crowd but is still somewhat intimate, if that makes any sense.

Selection varies and can be great but can also be very sparse. Their IPAs are very good and their San Quentin Breakout Stout is an excellent beer. The porter is excellent as well. I've also enjoyed most of their other beers as well. Triple Dipsea is good, not great and their barleywine is a touch better. Solid IPAs though, and they have started making some Belgian inspired pale ales, which is nice. Had their Cuvee Roge recently, which was a limited edition, bottled, on premises only sour ale, and that was excellent. Wish they made a few more one-offs but they are consistent and very good.

Very nice atmosphere and the food is solid. Haven't had too much, but for me having vegan options is my only concern and they do have some things that I can eat. The outdoor patio is really spacious and quite nice. Can't complain about the service at all.

I'd surely recommend this place as they make very good, consistent beers, but don't be surprised if they only have four or five beers on tap, sometimes they have many more but you never know.

Definite local hot spot, but parking is a nightmare in that center. Get a table outside if you can (and whether permits), but indoor seating is OK too. Food is on the better side of pub grub.

MBC was one of the first brew pubs to open in the bay. The beers have been consistantly good for a loooong time. Unfortunately though, the food and service at the brewpub has taken a steep dive over the years.

This would be a very nice place - love the atmosphere and it is in a great location. I tried to order a couple of beers on the menu and they didn't have the selections I was looking for (it was a long list of beers they have and have had in the past - confusing). The food was so-so, nothing to rave about except for the price - very inexpensive. The servers were nice, but were in a rush - so when the food came out, they said here is the catsup and mustard and walked away - didn't ask what I wanted (which was hot sauce) and didn't come back for 15 minutes to see how everything was going.
