The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
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. Today, our award-winning brewery and restaurant has become a favorite for locals and a destination for world travelers to come together to celebrate beer, friends, and fun.
In 2011, Travel + Leisure magazine selected the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company as one of America’s "Best Beach Bars". We have also been selected by Men’s Fitness as one of America’s Top Ten Craft Breweries.
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.
