Great beers...good food...average digs. We go to North Coast Brewery whenever we stay in Mendocino. It's worth the trip up. The place could use some updating but who really cares as long as the beer is cold and flowing? The food is generally a bit better than normal bar and grill grub. Thumbs up.

Start with the cask conditioned ale. Then try the Pranqster Belgium Golden Ale. You're now off to a good start. The real treat is the Old Rasputin Imperial Stoudt. What a great draft!
The beers here are worth the visit. There wasn't a bad one on the sampler.The atmosphere is non-descript and the bar room is relatively small. The food is OK, but I think they are very proud of it based on the prices.
The bar/restuarant is across the street from the brewery. Tours are sometimes available. Right around the corner is the Skunk Train ride throught e Redwoods.
If you're touring Northern California and you like beer, thi splace is a must. They certainly nailed the Imperial Stoudt style.

Did a brewery tour and dinner.
The brewery tour was nice, if not spectacular. Only 3 people on the tour, so able to chat and ask questions. The guy leading it was a co-owner and nice guy. Unfortunately, there were no samples during the tour. Informative, but not necessarily a ton of fun. I would not seek it out, but if you are there around noon on Saturday, why not check it out? The tour lasts about 45 minutes.
After messing around for the afternoon, went back for dinner at the tap room. Nice place, nothing extraordinary. Service staff was very friendly and knew their beers. All of their beers minus the barrel-aged Rasputin are on tap. I like the fact that they only have their beers on tap. I thought the food was really pricey. Some entrees are in the $25-30 range. I went with the fish and chips. Pretty damn good, and enormous portions. Enormous.
Check it out if you are in the area.

Arguably the only good place in Fort Bragg itself. It certainly helps to be associated with a damn good brewery.
The bar is pleasant with it's darker wood everything theme...helps to be from a former logging town perhaps. The rest of the decor in the other dining areas is also well done and with a darker, more intimate (perhaps?) feel to it.
The quality of the food is very good, and the handful of times I've ate there I have always been impressed, and left satisfied. Oh yes, and there's the awesome beer too! Try the sampler platter, but definitely get a ride home after that...

Diner-quality food, gourmet prices. North Coast Brewing Co. Taproom & Grill is in the spirit of those wannabe-upscale, pretentious, profit-driven, California places with corporate overtones. As opposed to the funky, hole-in-the-wall, local joints that don't take themselves too seriously and are all about awesome beer, while providing something simple and reasonable to chomp down on while you enjoy their fresh brew. Beer-wise, I was disappointed and a little put off by the fact that they only have their standard offerings on tap (no seasonals or aged styles), and they actually won't even serve you a full pint (16oz) of their stronger, more interesting ales (Le Merle, Old Stock Ale, Old Rasputin, etc.). Oh sure, you will pay the same amount (in some cases, even more!) but you will only get an 8-10 oz serving, and in the case of Old Stock you only get 6oz!!! So, basically you are paying more for the alcohol content in the beer, not the actual beer! Would you do such a ridiculous thing with wine which has as much as 18%?! How stupid. If they really think their beers are that valuable then why can you buy 12oz. bottles at grocery stores for a reasonable price? If they are concerned about people getting wasted then why not put a disclaimer on the beer menu...and, while they're at it stop serving wine and tear out the full bar? I've been to many, many brewpubs and never seen such a strange and slightly condescending practice. If you've never been to a brewpub, this place is for you. Otherwise, avoid it. There are much better places in N.Ca. that are worthy of your hard earned cash (Bear Republic, Triple Rock, etc.).

While on trip to No. Cal., I drove Ft. Bragg to have a pint of Old Rasputin right in the North Coast BC taproom. The beer selection was good, Old Rasputin was gread (as expected!!),the Old No. 38 Stout was good, as well. The taproom had a pervasive odor of garlic, food was OK and expensive, the taproom staff were less than excited to be there (did not stay for long as I was trying to visit Russian River BC and Bear Republic).
The attendant, however, at the gift shop was great; provided a lot of information about upcoming events in the Northeast.

There isn't a whole lot of competition in Fort Bragg; such a situation can sometimes lead to an acceptance of shoddy places. But the North Coast Brewery doesn't fall into that trap. The bar area is really cool and dark, with a neat old bar and semi-cordoned-off seating areas. The main dining area is pretty generic.
The beers are the attraction, of course, and there is a big brewery merchandise operation across the street in a storefront owned by the brewery. The food is pretty good, and the place is definitely friendly and informal, if a little on the needs-a-good-cleaning side.
It's definitely worth a stop if you're in Mendocino/Fort Bragg..
