Ah, one of the first brewpubs I ever went to on a road trip. Located in Larkspur, its a rich enough and learned enough place for locals tired of the crime n grime of the city. Plenty of open area for seating for dining, lots of wood and 49er decorations all over the place, kind of a seafaring vibe to it.

Beer and food is good. Really a big fan of the San Quentin Stout. Their hoppy stuff is legit when fresh. Be careful at stores though, they still don't bottle date anything, and I've had some garbage White Knuckle well beyond its prime.

Service is decent, they shut down the place when they feel like it sometimes, so be forwarned that you might get rushed to finish your drinks even though the hours seem to indicate they should be open later.

Nonetheless, a decent place with good beer, would just like to see them up their selection of in house beers. Cool grassy areas outside to wrestle around in too when you get drunk and aren't ready to go home yet.

I suppose there's many reasons why I've never been here but after finally visiting I can say I don't see myself hurrying back anytime soon. Brewpub feels like one of the early ones that just never updated… well, anything. Even the crowd feels like it’s the same from 20 years ago. Didn’t eat, so can’t comment on the food.

I recently stopped in here on a trip to Northern California. The inside hosts a brewery, bar, and restaurant and I got a definite sports bar type vibe all around. The bartender was quite nice and attentive when I stopped in. They had around 15 beers on tap, most of which they already bottle, and a few one offs. They also can sell certain bottles for on site consumption or to go. The quality of everything was good.

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.

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.
