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.
