sac·ri·lege – noun – a  violation or misuse of what is regarded as sacred.

At Sacrilege, we embrace the irreverent, the uncommon, and the unexpected.  From Wasabi + Pickled Ginger Saison to burgers on an English muffin to our extraordinary, ever rotating tap list, you can have faith that we will transcend the typical, in pursuit of the memorable.

Owner/Brewmaster Joe Pacini

Born and raised in the rural hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania. His love for travel and adventure brought him to California where his passion for the Coastside began.

Combining his more than sixteen years of restaurant experience with ten years in the Bay Area beer scene, (and a somewhat unhealthy obsession with craft beer and brewing) led to the creation of  Sacrilege Brewery + Kitchen in downtown Half Moon Bay in 2016.

In my first years of brewing, I was told that brewing outside of the four “sacred” ingredients, malt, hops, water and yeast, was sacrilege.  To which I responded, “So be it.”

Chef Santiago

Chef Santiago Flores’ culinary obsession began as a child in his home state of Jalisco, Mexico.  Since moving to the Coastside more than 23 years ago, he has made his career in the culinary arts, working in all-star kitchens from San Francisco to Moss Beach and Half Moon Bay.  Always striving to improve and learn, he has found a new home at Sacrilege where his wealth of skills are used to merge the worlds of craft beer and delicious food into a perfect union.  Sacrilege offers a 4-course beer paired dinner every three months created by “Chef Santi,” that should not be missed.
