San Pedro Brewing Co.

Just prior to the cruise that Corinne and I took last month, we spent the night in San Pedro. Of course being in a new town we had to try out the local restaurants. We decided on San Pedro Brewing Company because of good recommendations on The brewing company is a small bar/grill in the heart of San Pedro with no more than 25 tables.

The décor was mostly historical San Pedro, with old pictures and portraits of important figures in the cities history. We took a table in the corner and ordered a couple of microbrews. Corinne enjoyed a Harbor Hefeweissen while I had a Point Ferman Pale Ale and later a Long Shoreman Lager.

Corinne desribed the Hefe as having fruity flavors of citrus and banana with a bittersweet finish and very bubbly. The Pale Ale was full flavored, lots of hops with a sweet finish while the Lager was a little bit smokey, medium bodied (but they called it their lightest beer) and with hints of vanilla flavor.

Our waiter brought us samples of each of the microbrews though the only one I remember was the Chocolate Porter, I can’t describe that one but I remember I liked it! They all had great flavor but none compared to my favorite Warsteiner. We ordered the Fire Grilled Marinated Tri-Tip sandwich and it was just out of this world. The menu described it as Tri-Tip on grilled sourdough with caramelized onions, jack cheese, roasted chilies and Santa Fe sauce. Sounded good, but that didn’t come close to describing how good it really was! It was without a doubt the best sandwich I have ever eaten!

Looks like a good time...I went to a Mexican restaurant once in San Pedro. I wish I could remember which one it was.

It looks like you both had a great time. Is this your first post Daniel? Mexican food is great, isn't it?
