Motor Head Ale by Half Moon Bay Brewing Company

Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, a beloved destination known for its handcrafted beer, sustainable coastal cuisine, scenic outdoor fire pits and live music, honors the big Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show each year by brewing up a special batch of Classic Motor Head Ale.

The Classic Motor Head Ale, engineered to celebrate the hop bite of a classic West Coast IPA, is the official beer for the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, Sunday, April 28 at Half Moon Bay Airport, and will be available at the Brewing Company throughout the month of April.

This refreshing ale is in the style of a West Coast IPA bursting with aromas of grapefruit rind, resinous pine, and lemon zest, with a malt backbone that enhances the hop bite featuring Centennial, Cascade and Chinook hops. The Brewing Company will also have easy-drinking Kolsch pale ale and deelish, hop-happy Full Swing IPA on tap.

Selected as one of America's Best Coastal Breweries by Coastal Living magazine, one of America’s Best Beach Bars by Travel + Leisure magazine, and as having one of the best clam chowders outside of New England by Food Network, the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company is situated on picturesque Pillar Point Harbor overlooking the Marina in Half Moon Bay.

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.
