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.

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.

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!

For those wanting to stop into this place, itís fairly easy to find and has a parking garage right across the street, so there is plenty of parking. Went here on a whim on the way back home from Pittsburgh. House-brewed beers were pretty tasty and the food was good. Their beer battered fries are delicious. Was also surprised to see that they carried a nice selection of Rogue and several other craft breweries beers in bottles. I went on a Sunday afternoon, so there wasnít very many people there and the bartender was very helpful. She seemed to know her beer. The only downside to this place is that there is smoking allowed inside. If that doesnít bother you, then this is a great place to visit and have some good beer.

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.

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.

Located near wvu in downtown. Large spacious area with a patio area for smokers. All old wood the brewery is right in the middle several rooms,two bars and an area for a band. Didnít eat and didnít look at the menu. They had 8 of their own beers on tap and liquor.decent offerings including a shandy. Rating could change if I eat there.

Large place. Fairly dark but better than it used to be. Much nicer now that they do not allow smoking. Service was good and the staff was knowledgable and very polite. The food was reasonably priced but rather uninspired. I had the Jambalaya and was not that impressed. The regular lineup beers are fairly uninspired but the seasonal stuff is getting pretty interesting. Getting better.

Visited on a Friday evening. The exterior of the place is essentially exactly the same as the old WVBC. Despite a high-60s evening, outdoor seating was unavailable. The interior of the restaurant smells of smoke, is dimly lit, and has a fairly dingy feel. Some changes in decor and to the general space were made when this became Morgantown Brewing Company, most for the better. There is some seating by the bars, and then fairly standard restaurant-style seating. Eight house beers were offered, covering a fairly wide variety of styles. Unfortunately, after ordering a sampler, it became clear that only three of the original eight were worth consuming. Some beers seemed to be terribly flawed, and were far outside the tasting guidelines of their respective styles. When asked how our waitress was doing, she replied "Iím here." Encouraging. Our food took nearly 45 minutes to arrive, and arrived with mistakes, despite the fact that the place wasnít that busy. The waitress was apologetic, but didnít offer us any sort of discount for our troubles. The food was decent, overall, but not outstanding. In the end, it is probably not worth your time or money to visit this establishment.
