Baywood Ale House – Again

On my irregular visits to visit my mom I always find time to have a pint or two at the Baywood Ale House. This is the off season and I am stopping in on a very quiet Wednesday afternoon. It is so laid back and that suits me well! 16 taps and an obvious absence of the big boys. Sorry, you can’t get a Bud, Coors or Miller beer. Ya gotta love it!


Let me tell you a story about the photo above. Chalk board is pretty obvious, brews available! A new change for me though- last visit they were arranged seriatum by tap position. Now, the are arranged by type.

Overhead are mugs for the locals. I love how they manage the slackards – every Monday a ping pong ball is dropped into the mug. When you visit and order a beer the ball is removed and you are out of jeopardy. If on Monday there are three balls in a mug you lose. There are 350 on the waiting list! Next in line goes up!

The martinis, yes they make martinis too. All are made with an Asian Vodka, “Soju”, not on my list today! Sorry! Music? Just listened to Fly Leaf …….. I like!

Yes they have food too along with wine, bottled beer and other stuff”!

If you are cruising north or south on Highway 1 take a diversion to Baywood – Los Osos and indulge! Sure wish my wife was with me, love you Hun! I will be home the day after our after our 33rd.

Baywood Park Ale House

Surprise discovery for me! I picked up my mother’s car from the shop in Los Osos and drove over to Baywood while she napped. It is a fun place and if I had stayed longer than one beer I could have made 6 or 8 good friends! As it was I made two and was working on a third! They had a great selection of local beers and Central Coast Brewery in San Luis Obispo was well represented!

I had time for one beer as mom napped. I chose the CCB Terrace Double IPA. Very, very nice aroma and great balance of hops- my opinion!

The West Coast is well represented amongst the 16 beers they have on tap. North Coast Brewing, Hermitage, Drakes, Tap It, Santa Cruz, Black Diamond up in Concord, CA. Then they throw beer from Wisconsin. Minnesota and Utah and you have a great mix…. Gotta come back with my bride!

 

 

Quaint place just off the main drag on Santa Maria and 3rd in Baywood, CA!

Quaint little house and a great little place to drink beers.
