What a great visit. Pulled into town at sunset and quickly found the brewery... you canít miss it. Across the street from the brewery in the restaurant/pub, which has both a bar/pub side and a dining side. The bar is nice, lots of marine atmosphere, and a decent sized bar complete with a beer engine, Red Seal on cask when I was there. Food is very pricey, but delicious, though probably not good enough for the price... fish and chips for me and a spinach mexican dish for the girlfriend. I bought a case of beer and an awesome Rasputin gold-rimmed glass... and left a very drunk and very happy man, having the DD girlfriend drive my drunk ass back to the campsite. It was an amazing full-moon that night, so I poured an Old Rasputin into my new Old Rasputin glass and drank to the moon and the ocean... one of the most pleasent moments on my summer trip of 2003.

Just by the Skunk train station, North Coast íbragsí a pub and a brewery/store across the street from one another. They were selling special barrel-aged rasputin and 20th anniversary at both places, but the price stickers indicated 12.99 at the brewery and 19.99 at the pub. It so happened that they 12.99 labels were not valid anymore; we would have been pretty pissed if they sold a third cheaper once we had already bought at the pub. Heavy inflation in crisisí time is not an economistís nightmare, but it seems to be the beer loverís. Besides, the selection is solid, you know their beers, wonderful strong classic beers, superb saison. Theyíre here and fresh. Otherwise, the place is not particularly attractive, a standard pub without so much atmosphere at lunch time and average service, not too proactive and certainly not caring much about price tagsí consistency. The food was fair, very simple and priced reasonably. Not worth driving a hundred mile, but if youíre going along road 101, thatís a worthy stop.

Thursday evening 8:20pm after driving 10 hours and 450 miles from Oregon to visit this place we are told that they are not serving food and they will close the place very soon. Argh! Of course the brewery and the gift shop were closed - that wasnít a big surprise but closing the brewpub this early was a bit surprising and annoying. But it seemed that the whole town went to bed by 9pm. Well after a short negotiation they served us clam chowder and some beers. Clam chowder was tasty and the beers quite alright. They didnít have that much special beers to offer and most of their beers are quite common everywhere (even in Finland). Even though they served us the food and beers I felt like I have to get out of there very soon. The only reasons for us to visit Fort Bragg were this place and the glass beach and unfortunately both turned out to be disappointments.

A large dining room on one side with a smaller pub side on the other side. Good looking pub (although they were closing it down when we finally made it in so I didnít have much of a chance to try stuff Ė just had a pint of Old Stock). Amazingly there were no seasonals at all on tap and they donít really do them, which seems very odd to me. They sell their beer to go which I was quite happy for but it was strange that the whole town of Fort Bragg basically shuts down at 9PM on a Saturday night. Canít blame them for the town being sleepy, but I would have loved to have had a chance to eat a meal here.

We visited North Coast brewery in 2009. When you arrive here you understand the breweryís name much better, itís located in the far north of California, a lot of rain when we were there. They have a beer pub across the street, which is just ok. The beers are very good, liked the Old Rasputin best. I am now living in Shanghai and you can find their beers quite frequently, seems they have made a good deal with a local distributor.

This is one of my favorite west coast breweries. If I am traveling within 100 miles of this place I find a way to get here. The location and establishment itself are are the staff. What really sets this place apart is the quality of their beers. I am forunate that I can get many of them back east...but rarely on draft. My favorite of their regulars is the Acme IPA...when visiting though make sure you try the Belgium style Le Merle...excellent!

Went here for lunch during summer 2004. It was really busy so the service wasnít the best. The beer was really good, the food was fairly good. I liked the Red Seal Ale.

Stopped here on the way back from a business trip. Gorgeous setting--my god, what amazing scenery here and on the way past Anderson Valley on 128. Awesome. Kind of a compound for NCBC: they have a restaurant and gift shop on the east side of the road, and a brewery and gift shop on the west side. Nice people in both places. Didnít eat, but loaded up on schwag and some beer by the case. Wish I could have camped and hiked in the area for a week, and hung out and drank well.
