Business is not showing on the map in local search

The business is not showing up when searched by term "brewery" in local search (,-117.2513607,17z/data=!3m1!4b1), only when I zoom closer the map the results change and the business appears (,-117.2512479,17.31z). From where I am that brewery is the closest but it doesn't appear on the first search. The NAP is correct, it has plenty positive reviews, it has photos but still doesn't appear. Anyone has any thoughts why? 


Business name for that location: Helm's Brewing Co. Ocean Beach Tasting Room

Hi @Martyna L


So this is a question of Google understanding what you do and sending the correct signals.


1) You only have evensi and yelp that mention you online.


I would build up your business citations >>


2) You do not have any posts on your business page, it empty >>


Make sure you post on business page when you post on FB 

You have not added a tag line or a story to the page >>


Get rid of that  down pipe | in your name ( Its not in the name and not in your structured data name )


3) Your webpage >> In <h1> tag, add your name. I also added in an additional sub heading in <h2> but that would be for you to decide and possible update the text to fit the sub heading.

But you need a proper structure to the page.


Structured data looks okay
