Located on the main drag in Fort Bragg since 1988, this pioneering brewery serves up a limited number of very good beers. There is a nice bar facing a dozen taps with a dozen stools, also 10 tables. Beer can be ordered in samplers, 12 oz or 16 oz glasses or pitchers. The food menu is short, but with nice selections. The main brewery and a gift shop are across the street.

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.

ON the main drag in Ft. Bragg. Tap room is across the street from the brewery. Nice set up. All North Coast beers on tap. Had old Stock and it was sensational. Staff willing to offer tastings on all beers and Red seal on handpump is a bonus. Good gift shop in the tap room. Lots of bottles of BA old stock and BA rasputin.

Stopped here on our drive along the California coast. The brewery itself is across the street from the brewpub/gift shop. The atmosphere is pretty mellow. They have a decent selection of beers on tap. Nothing to write home about, but Old Rasputin is always top notch. The service was great, and the gift shop was stocked with BA Old Rasputin, although it was WAY overpriced. Didnít stop me from snagging a few though. Overall, I wouldnít seek it out again, but if I was in the area, Iíd definitely stop by for a glass of Old Stock!

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!

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.

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.

Food was better than expected and priced right. The carry the range of beers that they make but nothing else. Definitely catering to the tourists coming through. Huge gift shop! Nice break from driving the curvy roads of Highway 1. I Had an Old 38 stout and it was delicious
