Half Moon Bay Announces Father’s Day Weekend Festivities

HALF MOON BAY, Calif. — The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, recently selected as one of America’s Best Coastal Breweries by Coastal Living magazine, is a favorite family- and dog-friendly destination for craft beer and local seafood in the San Francisco Bay Area. This June, the Brewing Company is excited to feature the ultimate Father’s Day weekend lineup starting with the Brewing Company’s sponsorship of the first official Gamer Babes Day at AT&T Park on Saturday, June 14, followed by Father’s Day menu specials and live music on Sunday, June 15.


Saturday, June 14

Kicking off Father’s Day weekend in style, the Brewing Company invites all San Francisco Giants fans to participate in Gamer Babes Day at AT&T Park to watch the Giants play the Colorado Rockies. Sponsored by the Brewing Company, this special day will start with a luxury bus picking up all of the gamer babes and dudes from the Brewing Company at 9:15 a.m., arriving at the ballpark at 10:30 a.m. for a tailgate party in Triples Alley. With a delicious spread provided by the Giants and plenty of home-brewed Mavericks Beers & Ales, this pre-game party will also include “Gamer Babe” souvenirs and a private Q&A session with Mike Krukow, commentator for the Giants. In addition to admission to the pre-game event, all guests will receive a Gamer Babe hat and patch. At game-time the party will move inside the park to premium lower box section 103 to enjoy a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the ballpark. Afterwards, the luxury bus will shuttle all of the Half Moon Bay Gamers back to the Brewing Company where they can continue the festivities with live music by Reflex, the ultimate 80’s tribute band.


Sunday, June 15

After a fun-filled day at the ballpark with Dad on Saturday, guests are invited to round out the weekend by treating Dad to some fresh beer, delicious seafood and live music overlooking picturesque Pillar Point Harbor at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. Opening early at 9 a.m. with fun Father’s Day breakfast items, there will be menu specials throughout the day, including a Crab Cake Sandwich and Smoked Baby Back Pork Ribs. Mitch Woods and his Rocket 88’s will be playing live in the bar from 5 to 9 p.m., and every dad who orders an entrée at the restaurant will be treated to a complementary Mavericks growler (growler will be empty; limited quantities, offer only available while supplies last).


Recently selected by Men’s Fitness as one of America’s Top Ten Craft Breweries and by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of America’s Best Beach Bars, the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company is situated on picturesque Pillar Point Harbor overlooking the Marina in Princeton-by-the Sea. The Brewing Company expertly pairs a family-friendly, come-as-you-are atmosphere with a winning combination of fresh, sustainable seafood, craft beers, live music and an expansive, dog-friendly patio area with blazing fire pits to keep patrons warm on the waterfront. The Brewing Company is a casual coastal venue that has become an institution in the Half Moon Bay area for locals and visitors alike since opening in 2000. With its warm, wood-toned interior, expansive windows to the ocean, and walls dotted with surf memorabilia, the 6,000-square-foot restaurant and bar is reminiscent of a typical California surf shack. Behind the restaurant lie the 1,200 square-foot Mavericks Beer Garden and on-site brewery, where hand-crafted, award-winning Mavericks┬« Beers & Ales are piped directly to the bar. The Mavericks Amber Ale won a bronze medal in the 2012 World Beer Cup, and the Ocho Barril Saison won Best in Show for session beers and the gold medal in the Wood/Smoke Ale category at the California State Fair in June, 2013.
