Nothing beats a cold beer on a warm spring day. Bay Area breweries have been popping up all along the peninsula, specializing in everything from IPAs to sours. Spend your weekend exploring the best beer the Bay Area has to offer.
Here are six of our favorites to check out:
If you’re serious about good beer, this is the place to go. With a focus on California-style ales and specialty pizza served in their tasting room, you’ll feel right at home in their pub. Try one of their barrel-aged beers if you like a hint of Chardonnay with your blonde ale.
A cozy microbrewery with sweeping views of the bay, this spot also offers some serious brunch. Known for their Calf-Eine Coffee Milk Stout brewed with espresso, this rich and creamy beer is the perfect complement to an omelet and home fries.
This spacious, dog-friendly brewery is a Saturday staple. Bright and airy, the taproom frequently hosts live music and features a rotating food truck. Founded by South Bay natives, Hapa’s Brewing specializes in ice-cold Kölsch and fruity sours.
Inspired by old-style English beers, this brewery packs a serious punch. They feature a rotating menu of cask ales on tap – perfect for kicking back on their patio. Another dog-friendly spot, you don’t have to leave Fido at home.
With a serious name comes serious beer. Cleophus Quealy Beer Company is an East Bay brewery and tasting room specializing in rustic, barrel-aged, and sour beers. Bonus? The Canasta Kitchen Food Truck specializing in street tacos.
This brewery is a staple for anyone with a taste for Americana. With names like Brew Free or Die! IPA and Fireside Chat Winter Spiced Ale, their beers are a quirky walk through history. Our favorite? The Hell or High Watermelon Wheat Beer served with a fresh slice of watermelon.
