Woods Island Co.
The small brewery, Woods Island Co, brews small batches of fresh, exciting, and experimental beers, often in collaboration with the many friends they've come to know in the Bay Area’s vibrant food and drink world. The inspiration comes from far and wide, but the beers are deeply rooted in the Bay. Of course, the approach is unconventional (i.e a beach house in the most season-less cities in the country) but the work of the team is accessible and friendly: adventurous brews for curious drinkers. // 422 Clipper Cove Way, Treasure Island, woodsbeer.com, 12 p.m. - 5 p.m., Hours subject to weather.
