Half Moon Bay Brewing Company Restaurant Review

: This restaurant's brewery isn't just on site, it shares a wall with the bar. Taps reach directly into the brewery's cold room for ten different notable beers. Sample four-ounce pours to find your favorite; ours was the rich, root-beer-and-chocolate-float-meets-beer Pit Stop, a chocolate porter. Bottles, cans and growlers are also available. Beer makes its way into the food, too: house-made beer bread, beer brat pops and accompanying mustard, beer-steamed prawns, beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips and even a “beeramisu” for dessert. A definitive and delightful entrée is the signature Avo’s Portuguese fisherman’s stew, a rich broth with a touch of heat and fresh herbs, loaded with fresh fish, shrimp, shellfish and linguica. Outside, an expansive patio and fire pit encourage relaxing with beers, Bloody Marys and maybe some New England clam chowder. Décor is classic New England fish shack with lots of raw wood, less the buoys and lobster traps. Dogs are welcome outside.
