America's Best Beach Bars

Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, San Francisco
The Scene: A surfer’s haven that’s conveniently adjacent to Mavericks
break, famous for some of the world’s toughest big-wave surfing. Handcrafted
Mavericks Amber Ale and Mavericks Budgetary Alement are piped directly to the
bar from the Half Moon Bay Brewery next door. Grab a patio seat near the
blazing fire pits in time to watch the sun set. Weekends are for live rock ‘n’
roll and blues while “Brews & Views,” a heated political discussion,
takes place monthly.
Signature Drink: Mavericks Amber Ale, as full-bodied and robust as the
legendary wave for which it was named, $6.75 for a 22 oz bottle.
