The third stop on the great 2004 Sonoma County Beer Run. (The first 2 stops were both previously reviewed)

Located in a little walking mall area just around from the ferry landing (should you want a different experience of crossing the golden gate area)

As you walk in the front doors you're greeted by a brew deck to the left and a large set of medals, ribbons and awards to the right. The foyer leads to a long bar area of the same width with a large restaurant seating area wrapping off to the right and leading to a patio. Lots of your typical beer bar decorations with sports gear abounding.


Seating ourselves at the bar, my travelling companion, D, and I grabbed a gander at a decent pub-grub menu (with more seafood). I decided to grab a sampler platter. At first glance the sampler menu laid before you seems terribly intimidating with over 15 beers listed. (Un)fortunately, the sampler actually only came with 8 beers that were available.

While D, the wonder navigator, sucked back a pint of the Breakout Stout we ordered up a mess of mussels steamed in their pale ale.

Service was compentant and efficient, but didn't really do anything to pull great notice. The hostesses were nice in providing us with an opportunity to slide around the brew deck.

All in all.. decent beer, decent grub, decent location.. decent place.

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.
