In 2000, a group of coastsiders opened a casual family restaurant on Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay, CA, and in 2003 opened the first operating brewery on the San Mateo Coast since 1873. Over the years, we've expanded and now have a tap room, event center, inn, and mobile tap room. We invite you to experience all the Brewing Company has to offer at each of our unique locations.

who we are


SUSTAINABILITY / ENVIRONMENT

We were the first green-certified business on the San Mateo Coast, and continue to focus on and take pride in our environmentally-friendly policies like our low energy/water usage, recycling programs-including spent grain from the brewing process- and use of sustainable seafood. We were also the first brewery in California to brew a beer made from recycled water.

Through our philanthropic efforts, we’ve donated more than $750,000 in scholarships, charities, event sponsorships, gift certificates, services, products, and food. We are also proud of our beer sponsorships to many great local organizations. Each year, we give a minimum of $10,000 in scholarships to students from Half Moon Bay High School. Because of our numerous contributions, we have been honored for Outstanding Commitment to the Community by the National Restaurant Association. We look forward to expanding our tradition of giving back with our tap room in the East Bay.
