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.

Somehow I missed that there was a restaurant. This is still aggravating (I wonít be back that way for a while). But the people at the brewery are awesome. And I left with six world-class brews. Now I just need an excuse to go back to Fort Bragg.

The restaurant/bar is across the street from the brewery and this review is for the restaurant/bar. I ate at the bar. Good food at reasonable prices, nice people and good service, this place is nothing fancy, but definitely worth visiting.

Sat at the bar for lunch. Nice selection of brews (about 13 or so, with 1 or 2 cask). Bar had a large screen TV with sports but had jazzy music playing. Cool bar, dining area looked nice as well. Food was plated nicely and looked appetizing but turned out to be just ok (Shrimp po boy w/ fries), portions good. Although a mix of rustic and contemporary I think they could do without the Moose and Deer heads. Overall, a great place to stop when visiting the North Coast.
