Chose this place because we thought that it would be a brewery with food, but it's actually a restaurant with a good range of beers. Menu was small plates or large with a range of mostly fashionable dishes, Brussels sprouts, quinoa, fregula, roast cauliflower etc. Our dishes were all very tasty and served quickly. Lively atmosphere but dark. Torch app... More

This is a great spot to stop for a few beers with friends. We stopped after a long hike. The place has an upscale, casual feel. Nice fresh and local food options as well. We were extremely pleased with all of our choices, from salads to burgers. Most importantly, they have great beer!

Had a most enjoyable brunch at Mill Valley Beer Works with family. Meals were enjoyed by the five of us. The service was polite and efficient. A good selection of meals on the menu and the atmosphere is warm & friendly! Recommended!

Matt; Thank you for the fantastic time we had at our party on Friday August 26th. To say that the event was a big success would be a real understatement. That delicious food kept coming. And coming. Everything artfully displayed. I heard people raving about how the cheese was displayed, the beet hummus, the farro salad, the corn and especially... More

The food is very good, creative and interesting (occasionally a dud). The beer is fantastic, about 6 of their own brews plus 10 "guests" on tap. Wine list is weak. Service used to be cherish but now is very relaxed from friendly tatted hipster's. I love going here.
