Speaking of beer, Upper Crust’s 14 varieties of American Lights and Premium Craft tap brews are discounted by the glass, pint and pitcher during happy hour.

Anchor Steam Brewing, California and America’s first craft beer brewing company, traces its roots/ recipes back to San Francisco’s Gold Rush era of 1849. Originally named American Brewery, German brewer Ernst F. Baruth acquired the business in 1896 and changed the name to Anchor Steam Brewing. Hard to believe but it wasn’t until 1977 that a second California craft brewing company, New Albion Brewery, was founded and began brewing premium beers.
In 1980, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. of Chico, CA made it three craft brewers in the Golden State with their Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, a new beer type called American-style Pale Ale. In 1983, Mendocino Brewing, the state’s first brewpub opened in Hopland, and a booming industry was born, state and nationwide. In 1985, Front St. Pub, Santa Cruz Brewing Company opened in Santa Cruz and was the first micro-pub in the Central Coast since Prohibition.
This new pub was wildly popular but is no longer in business. However, Santa Cruz, Capitola, Scotts Valley, Boulder Creek and Watsonville are now host to a growing number of quality beer breweries, micro-breweries, brew-pubs, craft beer houses, with more to come. So you know you can belly-up to our bar 7 days a week and gulp down local brewery craft beer, all while digging into some of the best pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and Italian food in town!
