The craft beer revolution shows no sign of slowing down, and we’re okay with that. Beer has undergone a much-needed transformation in recent years, as a new generation of brewers put taste and innovation ahead of industry and output. Sure, it has led to some unusual flavors (pistachio milk toffee iced coffee pineapple triple fruited imperial gose, anyone?), but beer is serious business now. We’re all for it.
While many of those brewers do their magic in warehouses and revamped factories, several West Coast breweries have made the most of their incredible location to provide that most marvelous of combinations; gorgeous beer and equally gorgeous views. Does it get any better? No, it doesn’t. Up and down the coast, beer-lovers are in for a real treat. These are the best breweries on the West Coast.
