Go here for the ambience, and the beer. The food is mediocre.

We returned to visit HopMonk when we could not go upon an earlier recommendation. Sitting on the patio it was a bit quieter then being inside, and it was a good ambiance as well. There were not a lot of vegetarian options, but it was possible to make substitutions. My husband really enjoyed the Chicken Philly on Naan. Hopmonk had their own beers on tap, as well as ones from other local breweries.

Good brew pub. Food is fine, but nothing to wax poetic about. Seems to be a great place to go for live music. Great beers on tap.

We were staying in Sebastopol for two days and HopMonk was recommend by one of the wine servers we met during a winery tour. It's a very casual space with two separate outdoor eating areas. Very pleasant experience sitting outside. We had pulled pork sandwich and the fish and chips. Both were tasty and large portions. Cocktails were super good but the red wine was too warm. A small complaint. Service was friendly.

Not that they can control the weather outside, but we had 4 elderly family members with us for Father's Day lunch and requested to be sat inside since it was over 100 degrees that day. There was no air conditioning inside, the doors were open, and it was unbearable. The food was really good and the service was excellent, but the lack of AC made sitting through the full meal really difficult. We were very disappointed.
