You don’t have to sacrifice the lazy beach-town lifestyle and venture into one of the Bay area’s urban cores for top-notch local brews — Mastry’s Brewing has set up shop just a few blocks from the sand, and it’s putting out beers that hang with the best our downtown breweries have to offer. The rotating tap list always offers a ton of variety, and there’s a wine list and coffee roasted in-house, too. Next time you want to belly up in a brewery’s tasting room, consider a short trip out to the shore. —Scott Harrell
