WHO WE ARE

who we areWe started with some hops and a dream. A dream to become a community place for great food, beer, and conversation. A decade after a few locals got together, our award-winning restaurant has surpassed that dream. Today, we’ve become a favorite for locals and a destination spot for world travelers to come together to celebrate food, friends, and fun.

 

WHAT WE DO

Our coastal venue creates a magical alchemy for a memorable time: excellent food, handcrafted beer brewed fresh onsite, an award-winning dog-friendly patio, blazing fire fits, a tranquil view of the harbor, and close proximity to Mavericks, perhaps the most notorious wave in history. We’re not the only ones who think we’re special: In 2011, Travel + Leisure magazine selected us as one of America’s Best Beach Bars, and just recently Coastal Living magazine picked us for one of America’s Best Coastal Breweries. We think you’ll agree.

We love food as much as we love beer. That means equal billing to our food menu, which takes full advantage of all of the fresh, seasonal, local ingredients in abundance on the Northern California coast. Starting with these raw materials, our Chef has carefully crafted a menu that features just-caught seafood, scrumptious burgers, overflowing salads, and decadent appetizers.


WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

green businessWe're members of the global community who focus on environmentally-friendly policies. As the first green-certified business on the San Mateo County coast, we won this respected designation for our low energy and water usage, recycling programs, and use of sustainable seafood according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program.

We believe that our success comes with the responsibility to give back. Our philanthropic efforts have made a huge impact on our neighbors and the local economy. We’ve donated more than $500,000 to scholarships and charities; each year, we give a minimum of $10,000 in scholarships to students from Half Moon Bay High School. Our substantial contributions to our local economy have been honored with prizes for Outstanding Commitment to the Community by the National Restaurant Association.


DOG-FRIENDLY

dog-friendlyOur welcoming vibe extends beyond mere humans. We’re a dog-friendly hangout that welcomes your pooch with its very own, complimentary and house-made dog treats. Dubbed Maverick Bones, these canine creations are lovingly made with the spent grains from out artisanal beers. Because of our friendliness to four-legged creatures, we’re proud that Bay Woof's Beast of the Bay Awards named us Best Dog Friendly Restaurant for four years running! (2012-2015).

Our Food Philosophy

WE LOVE FOOD AS MUCH AS WE LOVE BEER

we love foodThat means equal billing to our food menu, which takes full advantage of all of the fresh, seasonal, local ingredients in abundance on the Northern California coast. Starting with these raw materials, our Chef has carefully crafted a menu that features just-caught seafood, scrumptious burgers, overflowing salads, and decadent appetizers.

We pride ourselves on our in-house creations, such as scrumptious homemade soups; clam chowder with 14 secret ingredients; smoked tri-tip, salmon and seasonal barbeque; and fresh beer bread made daily. And we never forget the details: our tender tri tip sandwich comes with a flavorful roasted garlic blue cheese spread, while our garlic cheesy bread is true perfection dipped in tangy marinara sauce. Whether you have a sophisticated palate for clams and cilantro butter or crave some fish and chips, we offer something for every palate.

as fresh as it getsOur efforts have been noticed; the San Mateo County Farm Bureau and the San Mateo County Convention and Visitors Bureau have consistently awarded us with its "As Fresh As It Gets Award," recognizing our commitment to buying and serving goods and produce from local farmers, and seafood caught off the San Mateo coastline.

Meet Our Chefs

FEDERICO (FRED) GODINEZ - Executive Chef, Half Moon Bay Brewing Company

frederico godinezChef Fred hails from Cancun Mexico, where he began his love of fresh fish, and he has continued that in his restaurant career, honing his craft at many different culinary experiences; including Mediterranean, French, Italian and German cuisine.

Fred’s impeccable taste for fresh fish has brought the brewing company to new heights as he sources the freshest, local product and creates delicious results.

GASTON ALFARO - Executive Chef, Mavericks Event Center

gaston alfaroChef Gaston Alfaro credits his grandmother for instilling his love of cooking, which he started exploring as a teenager. Native to El Salvador, Alfaro has spent his professional life refining his craft, taking it upon himself to master the art of many international regional cuisines. The result? A truly creative and unique take on colors, flavors, and tastes.

After 30 years in the restaurant industry, he came to the Brewery in 2009. Then he set about transforming it into a world-class restaurant. Drawing on his wide-range of experiences and love of many cuisines, he has created an eclectic menu that takes full advantage of the colors, textures, and tastes of our regional cuisine. Considering his kitchen a laboratory, he can often be found concocting new and creative food combinations and refining them. When he’s convinced a new dish is absolutely perfect, it finally ends up on our menu.
