Arne makes some of the best beers in the Bay Area, but he is too often over shadowed by Russian River. He has won tons of awards at both the GABF and the World Beer Cup. The pub is definitely fun. There are a couple dart boards in the back, decent pub food, good patio for those sunny days.

Friendly staff and fast service. They had 7 beers on tap when I visited and most of them were very good. I can highly recommend this place and I will visit again if im in the area.

This is probably my favorite brewpub in the San Francisco area. Located in the upscale outdoor mall of Larkspur, itís a bit out of the way but worth the trip. The beers are absolutely first class. Pretty much everything they make is at least above average. The white knuckle, breakout stout, IPA, are all world class. The food is pretty good too. It has a nice bar and plenty of seating. The service has always been good. There is usually at least two or three special beers on tap and they run good happy hours specials as well. Not super exciting, but you canít beat this place for the quality, especially if youíre like me and love visiting brewpubs where they make their beer on site. A must stop when in San Francisco

Had a trip over on the Ferry from SF.. Family & food orientated and pretty busy on a Friday afternoon. Sit at the bar if thereís room. Good selection of their own beers.

Stopped in here with my wife on our way from SF to my cousinís place in Martinez. Located in the middle of the Larkspur Landing shopping center, it was a little hard to find. The inside was cool. Lots of drawings from patrons and old MBC stuff lined the wood walls. There were 8 beers on when I was there. Samplers can feature any amount of 4 oz. pours you want. The price was fine and service was friendly and well-staffed. We didnít eat or look at a menu. Bombers were available for consumption there or to go; to go prices were $4-$9.50 depending on the beer. Beers were excellent. This place and its beers fly under the radar and thatís all right with me. Great stuff.

This place is always busy, even Saturday afternoon, the first dry Saturday in weeks!! Kitchen is quick with food. 10 of their own brews are on tap and fair amount of bottles to go. Waitress for pretty awesome considering she seemed to be the only waitress, including the patio area. A little strange, but they put the onions, lettuce and tomato under the burger, not in it. Burger was wonderfully rare and juicy, like I like them. Bacon was crisp.

Very nice place. A little pricey. Beautiful scenic location. Not much as much on tap that I would have like to see. Borderline retarded waitstaff, friendly, but stupid as all get out. Worth the stop but there is so much else out there that if you are stretched for time or on a budget I would suggest many other places on the 101.

Been back a few times since like for RBSG 2009, a few random stops on the way to Russian River, and even a ferry trip across the bay but here is an old rating from my first trip:

We stopped here on the way home from Russian River. The place is pretty easy to find and there is lots of parking outside. The waiter showed up right away and got the drink orders. We didnít order any food or even look at the menu because we had just had dinner at Russian River. We ordered a sampler and split that.

I was surprised that there was only 8 beers in the sampler. The laminated card that they put the sampler on had at least a dozen beers on it. In any case, the Hoppy Holidaze was awesome and the IPA was good too. The prices were reasonable and the place was nice and comfortable. I would go here again.
