On our latest road-trip up north with the dogs, we stayed in Trinidad. We stopped by the Redwood Curtain Brewing Company and it was so good, we made sure to stop by again on our way home. They have a large selection of beers, though they can run out quickly. Some of the beers are exceptionally complex. They also can the beers to order, which is great since they last longer than growlers. They don’t serve food but have plenty of tables and welcome folks to bring their own food.
Best fish n chips with craft beer and a dog friendly patio on the dock at Sea Pal in Fort Bragg.
Around 15 minutes east of Arcata, is Mad River. It has a dog friendly patio. We were disappointed with the beers, but the food was good enough. They have tater tots which were great as leftovers for breakfast.
