Lost Winds Brewing Company
924 Calle Negocio, Suite C
San Clemente, CA 92673
The beers are reason enough to take Dad to Lost Winds. Here you’ll find well-made beers ranging in style from a saison to a stout. The prices are also pretty reasonable at around $6 per pint. In addition, you can take a Lost Winds beer home in a growler or a 32-ounce can. This is a great place for a dad with kids who are not of drinking age. While most breweries are only for people 21 and older, Lost Winds is very family-friendly (pet-friendly too). The kids can go to the mezzanine for board games and card games while dad has a beer or two.
