Full disclosure, this was the first brewpup I set foot in, and my brother is a long-time employee so it has a special place in my heart.

Big space with lots of tables and at least 30 seats at the bar with another 25-30 on the back bar that seperates the bar from the dining area. There are drawings on the back of coasters, Marin bicycle, and lots of photos on the walls (I'm in a couple photos).

Marin beer is pretty f'in good. Like a lot of brewpubs, there are some beers I don't care for (blonde, fruit beers) but a lot I like (IPA, Stout, Porter, Doppelweizen, barleywine.) In 15+ years I've never had an undrinkable beer here which says a lot IMO. Some beer are O.K., most are good, some are great and occasionally they are sublime.

I usually sit at the bar and ther service is quick and good.

Food here is typical brewery food but some things are really better than most brewpubs.

This a great brewpub that has stood the test of time (in American craft brew history at least) and isn't going anywhere. They may not be the most innovative or risk-taking with their beers but they are solid. (1,100 characters)

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. (193 characters)

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. (209 characters)

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. (592 characters)
