“best clam chowder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

The H.M.B. brewing Company catered the Memorial for my father. Staff excellent, Food TOP. Also went there a few times to eat. In my opinion the best clam chowder on the coastside!

“Live music on Sunday afternoon ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Nice sunny afternoon in peninsula 74 and sunny we decided to take the convertible out and take a drive to HMB. In less than 20 minutes the temp shows 57 and the fog is rolling in. We decided to have a drink at the place. It was packed with older folks young at heart dancing to a country rock and drinking beer. We got a couple of beer and a nachos which was pretty good. We sat by the fire pit and had a nice conversation with a young couple from the east bay. It's a lively place if you are around HMB.

“Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

The food was very good and hot. The service was excellent and speedy. My wife had the clam chowder and love it. The beer was so-so. I had the Porter and the chocolate flavor completely overwhelmed the taste of the beer. The brown ale was average with very little body. The food does make up for it. It has a fantastic view of the ocean.

“Good and reliable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I would like to give them 4 stars but they are solid 3. Good variety of food on the menu and the beer is pretty good, not the best but consistent and good. If you come on a sunny day they have a nice patio you can sit out on. Bring a light jacket or sweater as you never know in HMB when it will turn cold.
