“21 beers on tap. Fantastic location just on the coast of Hwy 1. Packed on a Christmas Friday afternoon. Located in a shopping mall, with a full parking lot, so I parked on the street. Beers are awesome, as expected with humble sea. Highly recommend, though a bit out of the way (but worth it).“

“Visited January 2022. On one of the main drags in Pacifica. They have a small parking lot but there's also plenty of street parking. I was curious about this place as I saw it in my searches for beer places in Pacifica, but had my doubts about the actual brewing part. It seems those concerns were well founded as they had no actual house/Seahorse beers (or anything) on during my visit. As a result, this was just kind of a typical pub/tavern. I didn't take a look at the food/menu, as I wasn't hungry and was the only person in the joint, but the beer list was pretty poor. It looked like 16 drafts, but most of them were boring, widely available larger craft offerings, a few more local options (like Shadow Puppet and Hop Dogma). They also advertised some import bottles/cans like Belhaven and Fin Du Monde. Meh. This is one you can skip unless they ever get any house beers going.“

“Visited January 2022. Unassuming tasting room right next to the ocean. Plenty of street parking available and easy access to the highway. Not really quite sure how to describe this place as it's just in a little strip of commercial spaces, so not quite warehouse or industrial park, but not exactly like a normal office space either. Anyway, they have a big cold box and bar as well as a few tables. I took a seat at the bar and ordered a flight of four beers, though they had about 16 beers on. I just didn't have the energy nor time to tick 16 beers. The quality seemed to have a fairly big range with one of the beers being pretty bad, one mediocre, and two pretty good ones. The service was good and the other people in there drinking and watching sports seemed to be friendly. Wouldn't mind giving these guys another shot, but nothing really blew me away on this visit.“

“Visited January 2022. Right off the Francisco Blvd. exit from PCH. Parking seems like it could be tricky around here, but I was able to find a spot right around the corner on Paloma. This place has been around forever and definitely feels like it when you walk in. Old school tavern/dive feel with wood paneling, a huge wooden bar, chalkboard tap list overhead, pool and shuffleboard tables... you get the picture. The also have a little patio area out back. I sat at the bar with just a few other patrons, seemingly mostly locals. They have a pretty solid list of micros/craft beers here, but also have your typical local watering hold selections of Bud/Miller/Coors and liquor. Service was friendly and so were the other patrons. Would have liked to hang out here a bit more, but only had time for one beer on this visit.“

“Visited January 2022. Pretty happening on a Sunday morning/early afternoon, but I guess the brunch crowd plus football will do that. Was able to grab a seat at the bar between a couple of other groups. Located right on PCH and shares the same parking lot with a bowling alley. This place is really nice. Feels much more like a restaurant than your typical brewpub does. I had already crushed a Little Lucca sandwich, so wasn't really in the mood to eat, but the food looked excellent. They also have a full bar, so not just the nerdy house beers to drink. They do a set flight, but the bartender was happy to also let me get some small pours of one of the other beers I was interested in, and I believe even comped it. Super friendly service and they were on top of it, even with a huge crowd going. The beer list is not huge, about 10 offerings? They cover a good variety of styles here and generally the beers I have tried from them have been really solid. I would like to come back here for a more casual visit and not a quick tick trip. Definitely recommend.“

82 /100 5560 PACIFIC COAST HWY
“Visited January 2022. Located in a busy parking lot right off of PCH. I had to do a lap or two around the lot to find a spot. I would not recommend parking in the Grocery Outlet area as it seems like they have security that wanders around and you could potentially get towed. Really nice location on the end of the strip mall there. Hard to miss the big blue building. They have a nice outdoor patio area outside, but as Nick notes, the weather is not always conducive to such a thing. Inside they have a good sized bar area as well as a retail space for cans, shirts, etc. Tons of beers on draft, all their own, with a variety of styles to choose from. You can do tasters and full pints. I did not check on halves or growlers/crowlers. They also have food, but I didn't really look at the menu or see anyone eating as it was kind of an off time. The service was good and pretty expedient. The people were all friendly. Would definitely come back when I happen to be out this way.“

“Great spot in Pacifica. Large outdoor space for nice days (which happens maybe 5x/year). Great list of lots of taps, some really strong hazies but not a whole lot of beer diversity. They do it all well though. Food is pretty basic burgers/hotdogs/wings/tots/fish&tots, etc. Nice feel to the place. Good place to get your ticks in and they do have 5-ouncers so you should be able to do at least the 10 that I did. Service is very good with QR-based menus. Oh and there are heat lamps, which you'll almost certainly need!“

“So weird that this place has zero reviews. Oh, ratebeer. Anyway, late open of 4pm on Friday; this is a full service restaurant and they keep hours to match. There were 2 dozen folks waiting in line at 4pm. Lots of inside seating, huge outdoor patio. Menu looked interesting and reviews say food is good, but i did not sample. Bar was empty at four, but busy by the time i left at 5. Service was attentive. Taplist was scarce; i never did figure out everything they had on tap. I ended up getting the Brewers Flight, which included q hazy, stout, pils, and a tropical cream ale. All were solid. This place deserves more attention.“

“Final stop of the day. Smallish space, dog friendly, attentive service. About 10 beers on tap, flights of four. No food. Beer quality not bad. Hazy was actually very good.“

“Came here on 12.11.2018. Located close to the ocean and not too far away from SF airport. Small brewpub in a strip mall with a kind of ‚locker room‘ ambiance. Around 15 beers on tap. Had the Cream Ale and the Barrel Aged Wit beer. Both were ok. Service was not too friendly but warmed up over times They had good looking soft Bretzels, but did not taste them.“
