Paradise Park – If you’re coming from Grizzly Peak or Pacific Wharf, follow the main pathway toward Mickey’s Fun Wheel. You’ll see Bayside Brews on your left, just before the platform entrance to the Silly Symphony Swings. If you’re coming from Pixar Pier, you’ll find Bayside Brews on your right, after you walk beneath the coaster track.
- Service Type – quick service
- Seating – none, but located near patio seating for Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta
- Reservations – no
- Entertainment – none
Bayside Brews is a quick-service spot offering a selection of beers, wine, and pretzels. Guests looking for a drink or salty treat as they explore Paradise Park can swing by the Brew stand, and either sit down at the nearby boardwalk patio or take their snack to go. Bayside Brews is a favorite among California Adventure’s 21+ crowd, and is the best place in Paradise Park to get an alcoholic drink to go with your meal or snack.
MY RATING – ★★★★☆
I’m not a huge beer drinker, so Bayside Brews doesn’t have much pull for me. But if you want a drink to sip on as you navigate Paradise Park, this is a great place to stop. You can also grab a salty snack, like a pretzel, but Bayside Brews primarily sells alcoholic beverages. I’d recommend this quick-service stop for a midday snack, but it’s definitely not built for any kind of meal.
- Mickey Mouse Pretzel
- Zonin Prosecco
Bayside Brews is the only place in either park that offers cream cheese-filled pretzels.
Disneyland is a dry park, but California Adventure is not. Guests are free to carry alcohol around all of the lands, though you can’t bring open beverages onto attractions or into shows.
