Kind of historic building with pub and local paraphenalia all around. There are two entrances, one in the front and one back by the parking lot (pay - I think). There is at least one pool table and a loft area.

Most of the tap nozzles were brass and at least one was stainless steal. The kitchen was not really in the open but one could walk by and see the happenings. The wood tables, chairs, and brass plated bar with wood siding gave the establishment some character.

Service was friendly, knowledgable (at least tried), and prompt.

Good selection of their own beers and I did not see a cask option. Most of their beers had a similar taste, a few were possible notables, and a definite notable was the 8 Ball Stout (hence the pool tables).

The food was good.

reasonable

Brewery/tap room is usually packed. Has some tv's, bar and table seating. Average food but great if your in the mood for something simple. Good beer. Usually their usuals on tap and a couple taproom only like the apricot wheat. Usually pretty noisy. Overall a chill place.

Busy at lunchtime and still got a good table. Great burger. Wife loved the clam chowder. The chocolate porter was very good. Lots of locals eating and drinking. Friendly vibe.

Visited 3 breweries rated in this order: Mad River, Eel River & Lost Coast.
All good. Lost Coast mostly a university / young crowd. Order the roast oysters with pesto! (with garlic is over kill). Their beers a bit watery and uninspired, but liked the IPA well enough to buy a well priced 6. Our waitress was great. Pretty typical restaurant rather than a tasting room.

They seem to have forgotten what craft beer is about they make very mediocre one note beer. The beer industry has moved forward into a cornucopia of flavors and lost coast is doing exactly the same thing that they have been doing for the last 25 years . On the rare occasion that they try something new it is a horrible half assed effort. It seems that they are a victim of their own success kind of like they are not willing to take any chances and just want to play it safe . But that's just my opinion and it doesn't mean much to anyone but me

This is a very good, enjoyable brewpub in downtown Eureka. It's in an old brick building with some nice old details,including apparently cast-iron columns, etc., outside and in,with nice big windows looking onto the street. The staff are friendly and efficient. The place can get loud and crowded but has a good feel to it.

Their beer overall is very good but not outstanding. The range at any given time is somewhat limited but has their standards on tap plus a few rotating/seasonal ones.

Food is also very good,but not outstanding - good burgers, good steak sandwich, fish and chips, etc. Clam chowder is very good.
