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).

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.

An oasis of surprisingly good beers and food. Find yourself in town and I would suggest a visit. Their brown is especially impressive. Good food to boot.

Looks like EricG below has an axe to grind, ignore his rating. This is the first time Iíve been here since it changed the name to Morgantown. Large and dark inside, had a tuff time reading my menu. Limited parking bugs me. Friendly service. Prices for beer are good and they have a nice size sampler of 10 for $10, good deal. Has a deck outside if you want. Food was a little pricey for the serving size but my catfish and chips were dead on! Yum! Wife and I had a good overall dining experience.

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.

Really cool brewpub...spatious. reminds me a bit of an iron hill but more laid back. Friendly staff and very knowledgeable. Food was pretty good as was the beer and prices were good. Plus they have a PB beer. seems I had a better experience than many other visitors who rated the place...maybe they are stepping it up? Give em a chance!

Nice patio, cool vibe, but service was so atrocious that I cannot imagine returning.

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.

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.

Stopped by here on my way to Maryland for my sisterís graduation. Cool-looking place. Spacious and charming. Very close to the river, with an awesome-looking deck that almost has a view of it. Service was great. Bartender was friendly and knowledgeable, and when I met one of the brewers he went out of his way to accommodate me. About a dozen or so house beers on tap, which were solid and interesting to try. Glad I stopped by.
