For the tourists like me, Moylan's is in the middle of nowhere but it was also a convenient stop on the way to Santa Rose from SF.

Basically a large shed in a commercial area north of SF with a brewery and a big restaurant/bar in the way only the US does it.

The beer on tap was all house beer with a couple of hand pumps for a bit of interest. The quality was varied with the beers I had being average for the American craft scene.

Service was decent but with only 1 bartender tending a full bar, it was a touch slow.

On the whole I'm sure Moylan's is popular with the local suburban crowd. It offers a reasonable environment for dinner with the family and is equally suited to a couple of drinks with friends but to me it felt a little dull and lacked the character of a Hair of the Dog or Lagunitas. (806 characters)

Nothing special here. Decent beer selection but space is really tired looking. Nice large bar area is a good spot to pop into for a beer if you're stuck on the 101 or 37 parking lots. Food is OK. (198 characters)

The staff were knowledgeable of the beer, of which they had a large range to choose from. The beer range is also well worth it too.

The food selection was good, ambience fine. I enjoyed myself there, along with the sample platter. What I didn't expect was my sister's fiancĂ© from Italy regarding the meal and beer there tops as far as eating out during his trip. (365 characters)
