I liked MB Beer Plus and visited several times, and not just because my travelling companion took a shine to one of the handsome young waiters! Itís a modern brewpub, all glass and steel on the outside and stylish furnishings inside - leather armchairs arranged around candlelit dark wood tables, soft lighting, a nice tiled panel on the back wall and a trendy backlit bar. There are also two large copper brewing kettles on display although I think the main business of brewing is done in a room at the side. They have four very drinkable draught beers (available in four litre jugs as well as smaller measures), the service was delightful and the food was pretty good too.

MB = Mongolian Beer. A surprise. Does not look like a brewpub on the outside. Huge office building with mirrored windows near the pink columned building near the main square and not far from the Chinggis Cafe and the Irish bar. Beer was generally better than expected. So was the atmosphere, actually--very new and modern. Sort of a sports bar with expat and local crowd, about as yuppie as UB can get. Overpriced in general.

Modern-looking place with sofas and televisions and things like that. They offer Spanish-influenced food (not good enough to be considered real Spanish food) and four house beers. Two of the beers were pretty good, two were not. Feels like a movers and shakers kind of place, certainly by Mongolian standards.
