NEWS FLASH! Devils Slide Tap Room in Pacifca, CA

NEWS FLASH San Francisco Bay Area! 
There is a New Tap Room in town.
Scoop Taylor Video Report

There is a new Tap Room in Pacifica, CA and it is outstanding!  I just checked it out today, tried all of the beer flights (12 hefty sized beer tasting samples total - I can barely type this : ) and tried out the food.   

They are super dog friendly and even brought a dog bowl of water for our Westy when they took our drink order to start on the outdoor patio.

How to "Take Flight" and never leave the ground.
36 - 40 local epic micro beers on tap that change daily! Here is the current beer menu to give you an idea:
Great selection of micro beers!!!!
They make home-made sweet potato tater tots and perfect home-made hand cut potato chips with a chipotle dipping sauce TO DIE FOR!  We went to lunch here today it was fabulous.  Salads, burgers, wings, all fresh and very reasonably priced for the size portions they give you. 

Devils Slide Tap Room
5560 Pacific Coast Highway,
Pacifica, CA 94044

Plenty of free parking and it’s right next to the ocean and beach.  It’s in the LindaMar district right next door to the Fresh & Easy Market and our favorite local Nor Cal Surf Shop.  The sweet spot for surfers to chill at.

I met Claire the sister in-law of the owners Shane and Theresa Nolen and she gave us the whole story of how the place got here.  Clean open new space with large flat screen tv's to watch sports… but the beer and extensive wine menus are off the hook great!

Today is my home slice housemate/sister's birthday we had a great time!

A perfect place to take a Sunday drive along..
