I found the place very Marin, tucked away in a open air mall near a ferry landing. Sort of dark inside, so we ate outside. Our server wasnít around much. We had pizzas for dinner, and raspberry cheese cake for dessert, and the food was pretty solid. Interesting combinations on the pizzas which worked. The house beers were all good to nearly outstanding, my favorite being the Mt. Tam Ale, which couldíve passed for an IPA. Expect to be back here the next time Iím in town.

If you show up to MBC covered in Marin headlands dust, after having riden in the holylands of Mountain Biking... see Pine Mountain, see Repack, see Tam, then said MBC is similar to experiencing Pink Floyd after smoking pot you just get it. Marin Brewing Company is a Mtn Biker Bar. Show up sober and itís pretty freaking average.

Drove up from San Fran, great ride across the Golden Gate and down through the marinaís. Spot is tucked away, but worth the travels. Good beer selection. Grabbed a couple of appetizers, and a few beers. Nothing really stands out, wait staff was attentive.

First time back here since like í93. Same place but just more warn in and used looking than I remember. The food is decent and not much more. The help was friendly and fairly knowledgeable about their beer. I find their beer above average and there is a sense that theyíre trying not to get left behind in this craft beer revolution. The Quad I had (big thanks to hopscotch) is the best beer Iíve had of thereís and it was very nice.

Met some friends for a few beers and appetizers. Really good appetizer plates, good selection of on tapís, and I went back later to see what they had bottled to sell, and the bartender gave me a free bottle just for the heck of it! Iíll go back several more times.

I hate to say that the food is better than the beer, but true on the day I visited. Average service. Not one of the better places Iíve been.

A little seedy compared to Moylanís, but it fully qualifies as a local, which, sadly, Moylanís is not so much. Food was decent and the beers are always good. Handy jump off for the ferry to S.F. Drink, then ride, donít drive. Catch public trans up Market, then up the hill to the Magnolia. 8/2014 update. Food, service and selection seem to have improved a lot. Or else I was too picky on my first rating.

We had just passed San Quentin Pen across the street on the way over. Found in a little quaint shopping center. Three girls working the door. Not one greeted us, so we went to the bar! Basic selection on Pale Ales and an IPA on cask. It looked as they had an ESB and a Peach Beer that was in the tanks. Lots of old coasters and some bar towels tacked up to the walls. They offered growler fills and sold beer by the case. Those were most of the customers while we sat there for the short time. Seems nice, spotty service.

Definitely worth a stop especially if you ride a fairy over from San Francisco. Hoppy, solid, rarely flawed brewpub fare with an occasional interesting barley wine or double ipa. Itís often very crowded and service can suffer as a result.

Being a little older than many brewpubs, thereís some interesting stuff kicking around (like the coasters on the wall) from times when craft beer was still pretty underground. I also enjoyed the bric-a-bric from the areaís famous recreation pursuits, especially mountain biking. Conjured images of cooler times in the area (which has an amazing topography, by the way). The beer range is varied and has some interesting choices. I particularly enjoyed the San Quentin. Somewhat dark at the bar with natural lighting is a good way to counter the atmospheric tackiness of the Larkspur Landing area. They could have turned the heat on though. I ate somewhere else as I arrived at 11 and they didnít open til 11:30. Their bad. Worth a stop Iíd say.
