Stuck in the middle of a strip mall... blah!

Marin is a brewery that makes some high quality brews. Star Brew Wheat Wine, White Knuckle, Breakout Stout, among others...

Service was lacking. Our server was "ok", but indifferent. When my friend asked if there were any specials, she said that she didn't have them written down, and he could walk over to the bar and read them off the board.

Selection was pretty good. I think there were 7 available. None of the three I mentioned above, but they did have a sour stout that was excellent.

Food was pretty good. I was happy with my calzone.

Prices are average, and fairly reasonable.

Not a bad place... but I was hoping for better.

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.
