“A little gem in El Pescadero”
Review of Cerritos Beach Brewing Company - CLOSED

The owner and staff are great. We talked with them for over an hour. They have a full range of home brews and several other options. The home brewed apricot beer was my favorite. My wife had a margarIta and a punch and both were excellent.

The food is not what you would expect, but was a welcome change. We started with chips, guacamole and pico which were really good. I had the pork sliders and my wife had the turkey - both excellent. The cucumber salad was one of the best I have ever eaten. I hear that the Carrot and Ginger Soup is a must have.

They have music some nights and 2 pool tables.

Definitely worth the trip. When you are driving here they are on the right of a turnabout....it's easy to miss.

It seems everywhere you go between Cerritos Beach and Todos Santos you have an experience to remember. Stopping in to brew pubs and breweries is always part of our travels, so it was a must stop here. It took us a couple of drive-bys to find it open but glad we did. Bob, the owner and his awesome dog Charlie, treated us like long lost friends! The food was like eating at home, not fried, but homemade. Have the carrot ginger soup and some of the great local baked bread. Bob grabbed his guitar and gave us a personal concert while Charlie cruised next to Jim on the couch. Wish we could have gone back for open mike night. This is the place you hope is always there when you go back to El Pescadero.

Based upon the website, we expected an expat oasis, but instead we encountered what looked like a large painted garage with some tired furniture and a couple of pool tables. The beer looked and tasted like homebrew, murky and obviously made from extract. The menu consisted of primarily pedestrian sandwiches named after people I can only assume are friends of the proprietor. We expected some Mexican flavor, but apart from a few black-and-white photos on the wall (possibly left behind by the previous tenants?), this looked like a retired expat's hobby.

A wonderful place to kick back and enjoy a relaxing evening; great food; awesome service; fabulous music; terrific ales. The carrot ginger soup is amazing! We had the Raspberry Ale this last visit, wow! It is delicious. On previous visits have enjoyed the amber ale as well. Great local musicians as well as out of towners vacationing who perform. Wednesday nights are a "local jam session". Really cool. Easy to find, just in downtown Pescadero, take the paved road to the east from the Pemex station off Hwy 19, about 1 km drive to the round about and the Cerritos Brewing Co is on the right side of the round about.
Two of us shared the soup; nachos, and two ales each....all that came to a whopping 325p or about $27. Incredible value!
