COAST PROFILE

Half Moon Bay Brewing Co.

In 2000, a group of coastsiders opened a casual coastal brewpub located on Princeton Harbor just North of Half Moon Bay, and in 2003 opened the first operating brewery on the San Mateo Coast since 1873. Over the years, we've expanded and now have a tap room, event center, inn, and mobile tap room. We invite you to experience all the Brewing Company has to offer at each of our unique locations.

Take It to the Limit

BBA Barleywine

11/6/2020

By far the biggest beer we’ve ever made, this American-Style Barleywine displays a deep amber color, with the Crystal and Munich malts presenting strong fruity-esters in the aroma, while the American hops identify this as an American take on a classic. The high alcohol is evident but subdued by the oak and char from 18 months in bourbon barrels, adding additional complexity to this superbly smooth barleywine.
