The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
A group of local families started with a dream – to create a gathering place for the community to enjoy great food, beer and conversation. Over a decade later, that dream has transformed into an award-winning restaurant that is a favorite for locals and a destination for visitors. Our beachside setting provides all the elements for a memorable time: excellent food, handcrafted beer brewed fresh onsite, dog-friendly outdoor patio, blazing fire pits, picturesque harbor views, and close proximity to the notorious Mavericks surf break.
In 2011, Travel + Leisure magazine selected the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company as one of America’s “Best Beach Bars.” We were also the first green-certified business on the San Mateo County coast, based on our low energy and water usage, recycling programs and use of sustainable seafood.
We believe that success comes with the responsibility to give back. That’s why we have donated more than $550,000 to local charities since starting our business, and each year we give a minimum of $10,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors at Half Moon Bay High School. Because of our efforts, we have received the Outstanding Commitment to the Community Award by the National Restaurant Association.
