611 S. Palm Canyon Drive, Suite #22, Palm Springs, 92264
A pioneer in the Craft Beer movement, North Coast Brewing Company opened in 1988 as a local brewpub in the historic town of Fort Bragg, located on California’s Mendocino Coast. Renowned nationally and internationally for its award-winning craft beer, the brewery and restaurant and pub attract visitors from around the world. The new stone hearth oven is the centerpiece of the menu and is in constant use as the chefs bake a tempting variety of made-to-order pizzas. The menu also features new culinary choices, serving delicious and healthy fare and emphasizing the pairings of award-winning beers with stone hearth cuisine. We won’t be doing pizzas, but have selected some interesting cheeses to pair with the amazing array of beers that North Coast provides for beer aficionados everywhere.
