Solid food. Orange and black is a unique beer that tastes like an orange creamsicle. The ES-Tea is an incredible Earl Grey tea beer.

Stopped in for a beer on the way to San Francisco. Friendly service. Good selection of beers including two casks. Good sized bar and an ample amount of tables. Not too busy on Friday around noon. Didnít try the food.

Run by the same folks as Marin Brewing. I believe this was the ífirstí of the two, but donít hold me to that. Exactly the same layout as MBC, minus the outdoor area down there. Food menu is also basically the same. Beer selection @ Moylanís tends to be lengthier and personally I like them a bit better (especially with more low-ABV options that fit well with a quick lunch in Novato). Solid.

Conveniently located right off of 101. In a small little shopping center with a McDonalds. The interior is a pretty typical brewpub set up. Nice long bar with some bar tables and regular booth/table seating as well. Lots of beers on tap with a good mix of the usual bottled offerings, a couple casks, and some brewpub only beers. Service was really friendly and fast. They do tasters of all of their beers for about $1.50, which is appreciated. Didnít eat, but seemed like pretty typical brewpub food. Certainly worth a stop.

We didnít arrive until about 9:30 or so but the restaurant was still open and full of people. There was a really nice atmosphere and the employees were helpful. The place looks more like a cafeteria than a brewery or a restaurant. Thereís a long bar on the one side and theres plenty of beers to try from.
I got a sampler of everything they had which was about 16 different things at that time. What I thought was neat was the fact that they had some cask aged versions of some of their beers. Found some pretty good ones.
I got a burger that was really good especially after drinking a bunch of beer and my friend got the fish and chips which wasnít very good. The beer prices werenít too bad but the food prices made up for it. I think we spent $55 for the sampler, 2 meals, and a pint glass.
Update: summer 2012, stopped in for lunch on a Saturday afternoon while meeting some up and coming brewers that were still in the process of raising money to open a brewery (Beltane and Van Houten). Much quieter and more easy going. Tried a couple of new beers including the Orange and Black world series beer.

A rather huge restaurant with a very long bar. A great and very variared selection of their beers on tap. Friendly staff and very reasonable prices specially on bombers to go.

Nice interior, but a bit dark. Friendly and mostly quick service, and the selection is almost as good as one can expect from a brewpub. Didnít get to try all of them, but thereís certainly some fine brews coming out of this brewpub. Didnít get to try the food. I youíre to chose between Marin and Moylans, Iíd say go for Marin and sit outside if the weather is good. Else, Iíd go for Moylans.

Drove up on a day when the wife was going to a show. Asked for a sampler flight and was served a platter with about 17 4 oz samples on it, for $34. Interesting! Staff was super friendly - I didnt ask, but I think I was served by Chelsea Moylan (of Chelsea Moylans Porter). Beers ranged from mediocre to pretty good. Food was fair to middlin.

Feels a little odd inside, kind of like a chain Irish feeling family restaurant brewpub. Service was great, prices were fair, couple of things on draft from them that I have never had/seen. Easy to get to if driving by, but I wouldnít go out of my way to get here

Spacious pub/ sports bar, nice warm atmosphere. Menu has a variety of traditional and neuvo pub fare, even enticing vegetarian options. 16 Moylanís brews on tap including seasonal and cask options. Samples are $1.75 for four ounce, which may seem pricey, but some of the higher abv are only available in 10oz servings anyway. I had the Californian sandwich, piled high with veg and mashed taters with brown gravy. No complaints except some of the menu items seemed over priced, but then again the food was good quality. waitress was very nice and accommodating.
