We came here for appetizers during the week. They have half price appetizers and many choices. Our favorite is the salmon bites. They are fried in panko batter and they are very tasty. The chips and salsa were average and the wings would be best...More

Our experience started with waiting for 55 minutes (instead of the implied 20 minutes by the hostess). The reason for this excess time is because of a mistake on their part, and giving us the wrong buzzer. While we waited we watched the two girls...More

I disagree with one reviewer that this is in a seedy location. It's a fine location. Our server was polite and helpful. The food was OK. My husband had the flight of nine beers, and he said they were good. Live music on Friday nights,...More

We went here to taste their beer and were not impressed. The pale ales were very bitter without much hop taste. They have a full menu of of pub grub.

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 don't know either as gluten free was not important. They are "user" friendly and just call them directly at the site listed number. Also if cost is a factor-look at their happy hour and times. Many appetizers and drinks... More

Description
HANDCRAFTED BEER • FULL BAR • HAPPY HOUR • DOG FRIENDLY PATIO • LIVE MUSIC • 5 FLAT SCREEN TV’S

Seabright Brewery has had a certain “it factor” which has made us a destination spot since 1988.

We are the spot in Santa Cruz for fresh, handcrafted beers! We believe that beer tastes best when it’s made fresh, not having spent weeks in a warehouse or on a shelf. That’s why our beers are made right here, on a daily basis. We use only the finest ingredients: domestic and imported malted barley and hops, yeast and water.

Open daily for lunch and dinner, our restaurant is where you’ll find not only huge burgers but the best burger, and french fries in Santa Cruz. Same goes for our cheeseburgers, fresh salads, pasta dishes, and daily specials.
