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

Drove here after Anderson Valley, along Route 1. Interesting decor like a German style pub and cafeteria feel all in one. The beers werenít anything too special, it was nice to visit, wouldnít rave about it.

Beautiful area. Decent service and atmosphere. The selection was pretty standard, nothing special on draft. This was one of the breweries to introduce me to a good imp stout, so glad to visit.

Stopped in here for dinner and a sampler on 8/5/10. Place was pretty packed, but we got there about 40 minutes to closing and were able to grab a table. Service was decent. Food was very good. I got one of their daily specials, which was a pasta with garlic, mushrooms, goat cheese, spinach, grape tomatoes (halved) and pepper. Very tasty. Sampler consisted of stuff thatís mostly accessible where I live and the stuff that wasnít was the Acme brand and not very good. Still, canít complain about Old Rasputin and Brother Thelonius on tap. They also had a cool gift shop that still had bottles of Rasputin XI and 20th Anniversary.

Got to the brewpub just before open. Unlike most otherís Iíve visited, this one is decorated like a mid-tier steak house....or something... As one of the first thru the door, I was the only one at the bar, but that didnít stop them from taking ten minutes to greet me. I had a burger. It was average. Old Rasputin on tap was excellent, as always. The brewery is right across the street. The shipping from there must have been exorbitant, because they wanted $9 for a thimble full of old stock ale. 6 or 9oz. (I think.) ...which is weird, ícause it only cost $9 for a 12oz. bottle at the place I work in Chicago... Bombers in the gift shop also over-priced....though that didnít stop my from buying a couple. What can I say? Itís delicious!

The drive on US 20 into Fort Bragg was beautiful but you best have sea legs as it is very curvy and mountainous. The pub was not what I expected but was nice and clean with their great beers on tap. Jazz was playing, maybe it was Theolonius! We had several beers,all fine, but I prefered the cask Red Seal (great English style ale), Pranqster and Thelonius(two fine Belgium style ales). Happy hour started at 4 with $3 pints, I think, We thought the food was very acceptable especially the local fish and chips. I would be glad to return here.

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.
