MBC is a dimly lit eatery, lounge, bar and museum rolled into one. This place really captures the feel of earlier American brewpubs- that mix of British influence (a flavor for the local) with something like a frontier tavern. There are pub games (foosball, darts, etc.) and pictures of Old Morgantown covering the walls. Service was friendly and was able to answer my basic questions; later in the visit I spoke with a brewer who was very willing to talk about the beer and other local finds- very accessible and friendly. MBC had ten of their beers on tap for my visit; most of them classic styles brewed to style, and a peanut butter blonde. Food was good overall; my sonís pizza tasted like it used Prego, and our pretzel seemed more whole wheat twist than pretzel, but my wifeís entree (Appalachian burger with rings) and my food (Crab Cake burger with brew fries) were both delicious. My samples were a dollar a piece, so pretty standard overall, food was fairly priced as well. A good stop on our trip from DC, and a nice place to pick up my first WV ticks. NOTES: MBC is walking distance (maybe 0.5 mi.) from Waterfront Place Hotel. If you want coffee, Jayís Daily Grind is quite good, itís up on Willey St. PARKING IN MORGANTOWN IS HELL. Please be prepared with coins and such, as EVERY SPOT is metered, even church parking lots. Just. Wow. Thankfully, parking at MBC is free; most places in town canít claim the same.

MrBunn  (88) The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania | October 20, 2012
Popped in today for a growler fill to finish off my West Virginia portion of the US map. Itís a college town bar with some food that looked like bar grub and seven or eight taps of Morgantown beer. It might have been more than that, but most of them seemed pretty boring. I talked with the bartender for a little before deciding on a growler for home. $13 for the beer, $6.50 for glass if you donít have any. It was nice that they filled non-MBC glass, so that saved some beer, but the place was a bit of a train wreck on game day and we didnít have family lunch there like we had planned. If you want to get boozed with a bunch of college kids, this place is for you. If youíre looking for a nice brew pub for lunch with the fam... keep on driving.

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).

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.

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

Located right near the campus down on the main street. Parking garages are right across the street. Sat at the bar and ordered the sampler and some food. Their beer is not bad and worth a shot. The food was good. Its a fairly large place. Recommend stopping in your in the area

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.

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.

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.
