Bluewater's Brew

High Spot Beers

Our proprietary draft beer is brewed at a local, award winning Southern California small batch-brewery.

High Spot Beer Taps

High Spot Beer is brewed exclusively for Bluewater in the heart of Southern California by a female pioneer award-winning brewmaster, Meg Gill, co-founder of Golden Road Brewery. As a tribute to Bluewater’s rich fishing tradition, the beers feature names inspired by famous Southern California fishing spots.
