Dang it! I REALLY want to like this brewery! I like goin’ there – and hangin’ at the pub. Drinking the fresh brews by the beach in Half Moon Bay. But I haven’t been a fan of anything they’ve bottled! This was mediocre at best. It says there’s Pumpkin in there – and I LOVE the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival! But this beer fell far short of my expectations. It was drinkable. Kinda sweet. Kinda bitter. Just okay though. I wouldn’t buy this years again – but yeah…we’ll see if they get it right next year!
