Nice little local brewery within walking distance to the beach. The food isn't that great and a bit pricey for the selection, but the beer is pretty good.

I've been there five or six times - it's only two blocks from my house - and I still don't have much to say. The food's alright, not great. The homebrew's alright, not great (except their Botweiser - their Botweiser's really good). They're located at the seediest, most unattractive spot in the Seabright area. Most of their clientele are dirty... More

We have lived in the Bay Area for over 40 years and visited Santa Cruz and Capitola countless times. Our good friend who does the bar service at this establishment recommended we go there. Upon entering around noon on a Saturday we encountered a hostess who was sitting down with such a short dress it hardly covered her. She then... More

I love to visit the Seabright Brewery on the first evening of my regular visit to Santa Cruz. I was delighted to hear that there is a new brewer who keeps the great taste of Blur IPA and Pelican Pale while adding a true variety on their rotating taps. The service is always great and I think the changes have... More

As little breweries proliferate all over the U.S. we have gone to several. This one in Santa Cruz is a jewel. Very popular, they serve good food and back it up with fine beers. Weather permitting, the big outdoor area is a favorite, and we liked it because it was dog-friendly.

We both had a caeser salad as well as a couple of craft beers. The salad was good and so was the beer. We went at their happy hour and enjoyed some music in the early evening. There is both inside and outside/patio seating. Go at happy hour as the prices are much more reasonable.

We love sitting outside on their patio and their beer choices. I always get their steamed clams and my husband and I both get their wonderful clam chowder.

Really nice place, spacious patio (dog and cat friendly!). They make a normal meal a bit classier. Service was great, the server very knowledgable about their beer.

I was told this was a great place to eat. The beer was very good. I had the seafood bisque that was ok, served warm not hot. My daughter had the Tuna Melt which was good. My son had the Chipotle pulled pork sandwich. He said it had too much of a spicy kick for his taste. If you like... More

Whole family came here over the July 4th weekend. Went for our getaway farewell lunch. Everyone enjoyed the food and the beer. I expected the food to be average based on other reviews but feel the food is better than some people describe. Great local neighborhood place in the Seabright area. Would go again,
