We are brewers, BBQ-ers, musicians, advocates for the oceans, lovers, fighters, gardeners, firestarters, star gazers, dog lovers, tide watchers, loud laughers, fish catchers, smack talkers, wave catchers, back flippers and triple dog dare-ers. We also have without question the best bonfires on the planet. We believe that the only thing in the world better than drinking Oregon brewed craft beer, is drinking OREGON COAST brewed craft beer in an amazing place like Seaside. Be Kind. Think Local. Drink Coastal.
Fish is one of the most wholesome foods that man can eat. In fact, people have been eating fish throughout human history.Book a Table
Along with our love of Craft Beer, we also have a thing for good BBQ. We appreciate the great standards of Texas BBQ and the great Southern and even International BBQ styles, and we tip our hats to those classic methods as we add our own coastal spin to the art of cooking with real wood, fire, and smoke. We pretty much smoke everything we can fit in our two 1000 gallon pits. Fish, oysters, clams, beef brisket, ribs, pork, turkey, vegetables, mushrooms, and on and on. We have just as much fun trying out new concepts with our food as we do with our beers, and it’s never a dull moment in the Pits, or in the Brewhouse.
When WE eat all these amazing things we like them to be fresh and clean and local and delicious and memorable. We assume that’s how you like it too, so that’s exactly how we make it. Also, we make all these things so that they go really well with beer. So yeah, we have some seriously good food and beer, without being all pompous and serious about it. Seriously.
Construction on the The old City Jail and City Hall building began back in 1912 after a fire started in a tavern downtown and swept through the city, wiping out a large area of Seaside including the Jail, City Hall, and Firehouse. The decision was made to move construction of the new city buildings East over the Necanicum river and today, the building sits on the corner of historic Highway 101 and Broadway at the entrance to downtown Seaside. The building was completed in 1914 and was hailed as one of the architectural gems of Oregon at the time. It served as both the City Jail and City Hall, and many of Seaside’s current residents have sat and drank beer at the bar, which we built around the original jail cell that served as the Drunk Tank and occasional Women’s cell. In fact, we turned the original Drunk Tank into our keg cooler and our beer taps extend proudly out of the wall of the cell that housed many a rowdy drunk during Seaside’s early history. Seaside built a new City Hall and in 1989 the building was vacated and the city offices moved across Highway 101 into a new building and the old City Jail/City Hall sat largely empty for the next 20 years. In 2009 a huge windstorm hit the North Oregon Coast, nearly destroying the entire building and launching the roof and much of the top floor into the night sky, depositing it in the middle of Broadway Avenue. In 2011 Seaside Brewery began working to help restore the historic building to its former glory and it has been resurrected using almost entirely locally reclaimed wood and materials. We love the old historic building, and feel honored to be its stewards. We think of the old City Jail building as Seaside’s living room, and there is nothing else like it in Seaside. So yeah, you get to experience Oregon Coast history while you drink beer. In jail. You're welcome.
