It used to be when this was the West Virginia Brewing Company that the beer was great and the food was sketchy. Especially in the latter phases. Since the rebirth as Morgantown Brewing Co the atmosphere is dramatically improved, the food is much better and there is more variety. However, the beer is very inconsistent. In fact, I rarely go there now due to the inconsistency. I stopped in a few weeks ago and the Zack Morgan and Old Morgantown were quite good. I was relieved. However, yesterday I had to return the Old Morgantown as undrinkable. Quite astringent on the palate. Had it replaced with a Brown Ale which was pretty good. A few months ago we also batted around 50% with 2 returned and 2 drinkable.

I would suggest a little more attention to detail. Keep those lines flushed, double down on sanitation and watch out for contamination points. It would benefit all of us beer lovers if this place would succeed.

Stopped here to try a quick flight on my most recent road trip. The place is in a bit of a congested area of town but was able to find a back alley parking lot to park in for the time I was there. The vibe is decent, it's dim lit inside. The brewing area is near part of the dining area which is cool to see. The service was very friendly. The selection is decent but nothing super crazy. I hadn't tried any food but definitely thought about it.

It’s open at noon on Sundays, but they can’t serve beer until 1PM due to the blue laws. I had a good luch while I was waiting. The menu is basically pub fare, but it is quite good. I had a killer Scotch Ale n’ Onion soup as a starter. Followed that up with a bratwurst with kraut on a great roll. Excellent fries on the side. The place itself is set in a really old building. Lots of old dark wood, with brick in some areas. It has a nice charm. And my server was very attentive. Definitely worth a visit.
