I enjoyed my time at Seabright. From the walk from the Wharf across the trestle to sitting at the bar and chatting with the patrons and the bartenders. Beer selection was diverse enough to satisfy any beer geek, bartenders were friendly but not overbearing, service was good and fellow patrons were willing to chat about real estate with a couple of East Coasters. We had pub grub off the menu and our stomachs and wallets were satisfied. Bar area could of been a little bigger but there was also outside seating available. I liked the fact they served 12 ounce beers. If you are visiting Santa Cruz Iíd say Seabright is a must stop and a safe walk across the trestle from the boardwalk area.

I lived down the street for four years, so this was my regular hangout between 1990 and 1994. I loved it then, as it was the "new" brew pub in town (the old one, the Santa Cruz Brewing Company and Front Street Pub, closed many years ago). The beer is good, not great, and it is walking distance to Seabright beach and the yacht harbor. The menu has changed numerous times over the years, but it has always been decent. My tastes have changed, too, so the amber that I so loved in the past is not as dear to my heart any longer. But it is still a good place to grab a locally brewed beer.

A dark little brewpub, with lots of local punters. Lots of high tables and stools kept in light wood. The bar is a bit confusing with lots of different signs. Had 6 of their own beers of decent quality, though nothing outstanding.

June 2009. Iíd known of this place for some time and had wanted to go for a while. Itís in this odd little strip mall location, with a patio dining area that overlooks a semi-busy street, decked out with cheap furnishings. I was kinda disappointed in my initial impressions. They had some quality beers offered, but they all were at the level of good homebrews -- nothing worthy of commercial retail success. The service was lax, dominated by "donít care" hippies. The food was average.

Seabright makes some good beers and some pretty lackluster beers, but they usually have at least one decent seasonal to try, and they sometimes put a new one on every couple of weeks which can keep thing interesting (though if they make yet another version of the same boring american wheat with a cute/clever name this summer I might just boycott). I enjoy the oatmeal stout and the pale ale. The IPA isn’t bad, but it’s not exactly a hopheads delight, so I never order it. As far as the other two year-rounds, the amber has never been in form when I’ve tried it, and the Sacrilicious Ale, though always up on the chalkboard, is always out. I’m beginning to doubt that they even brew this beer, but the description sounds so tasty that I’ll keep checking back. They are also usually out of at least one other beer, so overall selection is like six house and one guest, which is always a boring macro import. I know that they could do much better than this.
The service is pretty spott

My first visit here since í92. Sure seems to look a lot like I remember. I guess theyíve been selling their offerings at a furious pace. They were out of four of them. I had the IPA and Amber that were both decent products. The food seems pretty good pub grub type stuff. I only had an appetizer. The wait staff was friendly and they had their flat panels tuned to three different sporting events. Nice place to take in a game. Iíll be back next time Iím in the area.

I hit this place every time I go to Santa Cruz. They always have several beers on tap that represent a wide variety of their offerings. They rotate them frequently, too. Very pleasant setting (especially out on the patio on a nice day!) The service is always tip-top and very friendly. Iíve never had a poor beer from this place and the food on the menu has something for everyone.

Nice decor, beers good, standard California brew pub selections, nothing outstanding. Food dishes range from pastas to fish & steak. Worth a stop if your in town.

This was the first place I discovered in Santa Cruz. They make a wide range of beers, varying from average to very good. Service is good (at the bar) and the bartenders are very entertaining.
