The front room of this place has a large U-shaped bar, lots of tables, and a jazz band when we stopped by. Then you can walk into the brewery and turn right to find a smaller, more intimate bar. Selection is the same at both, so take your pick. Staff was terrific - Antonio steered us in the right direction and made sure we got a glass of the seasonal which wasnít on the menu. Beers were tasty. Didnít try the food, but I would return to do so. Nice stop.

Arrived at 6:00pm to find the front room empty and every one congregated around a back bar. Despite only 10 people being in the rather tiny bar area it took 15 minutes before my presence was acknowledged by someone who worked there. The beers were decent. The food was very bland. The chili was flavorless and served lukewarm. The fish and chips were not the least bit appetizing. If you have to go to Morgantown and youíre desperate for beer ticks this place exists, but donít make a special trip here.

A rather dank, loud, and smoky joint in a coal infested college town. The beer is fine and we did not try any food. The service is more bar-like than brewery/brew pub like. About 8 house beers are available on tap along with plenty of macro crap bottles.

Wow this is a claustrophobic town. This place is nice inside... large restaurant with lots of dark wood and an adjacent lower key bar area where sadly smoking is allowed. In fact, I felt out of place in this town NOT smoking. Bartender was nice enough but unattentive. The food was mediocre (beer cheese soup). They offer a regular sampler and a seasonal sampler. The beers ranged from poor to very good. Apparently they have parking but I found it much easier to park in the garage the next block over (75 cents an hour). Everything is dirt cheap.

Visted in March 2010. I enjoyed this place, especially in view of the relatively slim pickings in Morgantown. I guess itís a pretty middle of the road brewpub but I liked the atmosphere - not too much of a corporate, identikit feel. Beers were OK - sampler tray available. Food was OK. Service was incrediby attentive, possibly because our server was an Anglophile who had lived in the UK for a while and seemed more intent on chatting to us than attending to other clientele. So I guess service may have been a bit flaky if you were one of those other customers. One of those places that are not stellar but fill a niche in the area and are a godsend if you are travelling through.

Decent place. Food was good, chili and Cajun chicken cordon blue. Beer was a hit, some misses and mostly in between. Server was on top of everything. Otter creek IPA was nice. Parking in back

Rustic, copper and wood interior. Full bar and some TVs to watch sports and such. Copper plated brewing vessels are in the back along with another full bar and some dart boards (kicked my nephewís ass without throwing a dart in about ten years). There is also a second floor outdoor beer garden in the back overlooking the Monongalia River which runs north to Pittsburgh. Overall, sort of vanilla as far as the atmosphere goes. Cozy, but not too cozy. The beer is very decent, but certainly not great. Arenít almost all craft beers, though? There are a couple standouts in my sampler. The food is good and service is excellent. Absolutely worth a visit.

Right downtown - nice older building. Very dark inside. Very good service (got there right around shift change). Nice eclectic food selection (especially for WV). Beers were all decent enough. A nice stop - Iíd say a must if in the area (as thereís not a lot of other choices).

So to start, apologies to anyone that does like to live in WV, but Morgantown just looks like sadness. Sure being a mid February day doesnít help... Anyway, MBC is easy to find. Their beers are serviceable with a few standouts. The place is enormous and the food exceeded my expectations. Not mind blowing or anything but very good. Drinks and food were cheap and service was good. The place was barren though it was Sunday night but the place could stand to be half of its size so that you donít feel lost. They had 9 beers on tap at the time of my visit which is impressive.

Visited: 10-18-11 I had stopped here for lunch on my way from Charlotte NC. The weekday lunchtime crowd was very light, but from looking at the layout of the building, it is very inviting. They have two bar inside the building, with each having about a dozen stools around them, plenty of tables for dining, several dart boards, pool table, and a decent sized back patio deck that kind of over looks the river. The quality of the beers were average as none of the beers stunk but didnt impress me either (had the sampler platter which has 8 samples on it). The servers and bartenders were friendly, attentive, and willing to talk beer (when time permitted). The selection of their beers was decent as they had 8 beers on tap (all made in house) and a good variety with no over lapping. The food was average, burgers, chicken sandwiches, wings, fries...my burger was a little dry and side of mac/cheese was nothing short of boxed mac/cheese but is wasnt the worst bar food either. When stopping in town to visit the WVU or taking in a game, stop in and knock the WVa beer and barfly reviews off your board, I did.
