North Coast Brewing Company, Fort Bragg

3.8
A pioneer in the craft beer movement, opened in 1988 as a local brewpub in the historic town of Fort Bragg, located on California’s Mendocino Coast.

Under the leadership of brew master Mark Ruedrich, the brewery has developed a strong reputation for quality having won more than 70 awards in national and international competitions.

In addition to Red Seal Ale, Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, Scrimshaw Pilsner, and other fine North Coast brands, the brewery has resurrected the old Acme label with a heritage dating back to the San Francisco of the 1860’s.

  • Really like the Brother Thelonious. Cute shop with beer and North Coast Brewing memorabilia.
  • Lovely barrel aged beer, really regretting not buying more when I was there...
  • The beer here is badass!
  • While the food isn't revolting - it's nothing to write home about either. I'd find the menu much more appetizing if it was about HALF the price. The quality is poor and most things are simply bland and the burger was over cooked. The things they seem to do best is your standard brew-food like fries, fish n chips, nachos etc. However don't let the food get in the way of a good pint - they are great at brewing beer and should stick to it. I like the Old 38 Stout and the Scrimshaw.
