Beer and Cheese Dinner with Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company
Monday, September 24, 2012 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
Half Moon Bay, CA
Celebrate the palate-pleasing harmony of pairing craft beer with some of Northern California's most treasured artisan cheeses! Close friends of the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, the Stray and Giacomini families have been making extraordinary handcrafted cheese at the Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company since 2000 and Lynn Stray will speak at the dinner about the delicious Original Blue, Toma, Fresh Mozzarella and Bay Blue cheeses, all four of which will be perfectly paired with Brewmaster Kirk Hillyard's fall beer selection in a fun and delicious exploration of taste with a menu created by Chef Gaston Alfaro.
In keeping with the Brewing Company's ongoing philanthropic initiatives, a portion of the evening's proceeds will be donated to a Coastside charity.

When & Where
Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
Recently selected by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of America’s Best Beach Bars, the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company is situated on picturesque Pillar Point Harbor overlooking the Marina in Princeton-by-the Sea. The Brewing Company expertly pairs a family-friendly, come-as-you-are atmosphere with a winning combination of fresh, sustainable seafood, craft beers, live music and an expansive, dog-friendly patio area with blazing fire pits to keep patrons warm on the waterfront. 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. Behind the restaurant lie the 1,200 square-foot Mavericks Beer Garden and on-site brewery, where hand-crafted, award-winning Mavericks® Beers & Ales are piped directly to the bar. The Mavericks Amber Ale won a bronze medal in the 2012 World Beer Cup.
