Note…to the commenter who asked about decent pubs in San Rafael in Marin County, I turned to the San Rafael IJ’s Brent Ainsworth, who writes about beer, among many other things, for the IJ:
San Rafael … Let’s see … The Flatiron in downtown… (724 B St., San Rafael, CA 94901, (415) 453-4318 is a sports bar (lots of TV screens) with a few decent selections on tap.
The Mayflower on Fourth Street ( 2111 Francisco Blvd, San Rafael, CA 94901, (415) 459-6683) is more of an authentic British pub and a much better choice on the taps, plus traditional Irish music jam sessions on Tuesdays (I think) …
Wipeout Bar & Grill in Greenbrae (302 Bon Air Center, Greenbrae, CA 94904, (415) 461-7400 has Arrogant Bastard and a surf theme …
Frankly, when I’m out and about, I stick to the brewpubs — Broken Drum, (1132 4th St
San Rafael, CA 94901, (415) 456-4677), Iron Springs in Fairfax, Marin Brewing in Larkspur, Moylan’s in Novato. As a true beer geek and devoted hophead, I loathe \ a long line of tap handles with pils after pils after pils. That’s not selection. – Brent Ainsworth
