Tucked away between the idyllic backdrops of tranquil redwood forests and pristine coastlines, Aptos is ideal for enjoying a high-quality drink in a fantastic setting. Read on below to find out more about the bars and breweries Aptos has to offer!

The Best Places to Grab a Brew in Aptos

Already mentioned on our list of Aptos restaurants, Aptos Street BBQ serves up craft microbrew beers along with some mean barbeque. Enjoy your brew and barbeque with a side of homegrown live blues music.

The Hideout is a hidden gem in Aptos that is known for its inexpensive happy hour, killer cocktails, and its variety of wines, as well as its delicious food menu if you’re up to snacking. Draft beers, bottled beers, and hard ciders are all available as well, but wines and cocktails like the Effen Mule dominate the drink menu. Enjoy the relaxed outdoor patio seating on a breezy evening.

If you’re looking for an incredible glass of Pinot, look no further than Armitage Wines. Specializing in Pinots, this upscale wine bar showcases a variety of tastes within the discipline. Just be prepared to drop a little bit of cash if you want a whole bottle!

With a menu that focuses on craft beers, local wines, and delightful tapas, Cantine Winepub is yet another bar that also made our list of restaurants in Aptos. Grab a small bite to munch on with your superb beer or wine flight and you won’t be disappointed!

Another restaurant with an expansive enough selection of craft beers (about forty beers on tap at all times) to earn its reputation as a must-try destination is burger.aptos. Not only does burger. boast a lengthy list of beers, but as its name suggests, they also serve up a jaw-dropping variety of burgers, sliders, sandwiches, and more. You would think there’d only be so many ways to cook a burger, or so many ingredients that you could add, but burger. sets out to disprove these misconceptions.

On the border between Aptos and Capitola is a small Aptos brewery called Sante Adairius Rustic Ales. Nestled within a nondescript business complex, the brewery within is anything but. Using rustic Belgian brewing techniques to concoct handcrafted beers, Sante Adairius Rustic Ales has developed quite the local following. They’re also dog-friendly, which is a bonus for pet-owners traveling with their four-legged loved ones.
