Half Moon Bay Brewing Co.
390 Capistrano Road
Half Moon Bay, CA 94019

Sometimes a trip out of the city calls. Imagine driving down the coast, breathing in fresh ocean air, and kicking back with a few beers right on the beach—not bad, huh? If this sounds good to you, check out Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. And don’t leave your dog at home.

Owners and their pets can take a seat outside on the patio, where flash fried artichokes and fish tacos will surely pair well with just about any beer on the menu. While humans are invited to sample beer made right on location, dogs enjoy fresh water bowls and treats made from excess ingredients during the brewing process. Don’t worry—your furry friend won’t get drunk, so you should be on your best behavior too.

If you can take a sick day (we won’t tell), head out during the week with your favorite designated driver and enjoy their happy hour (M-F, 11 AM-6 PM). Perhaps stay out late and enjoy some of the live music scheduled during the week, which usually starts at happy hour ends.

Happy Dog, Beer Belly Joy. Avoiding the word “valuation” every 12 seconds, now that sounds like a great time to us.

Best for: snacks, beer, small to average sized breeds, well-behaved dogs, roadtrip loving dogs , beach bums
