Figeroa Mountain Brewing Co, in Buelton on Industrial way, just off the 246. If your near Solvang, the Firestone Walker tasting room, and or Anderson's Pea Soup, then your a mile or two from this brewery.
I believe they have been open just over 1 year. Anyhow, visited back on Labor Day Weekend with family & friends. We actually just walked from our camp ground at Flying Flags RV park, since it was 1 mile flat away. Place is towards the end of the road, on the right, in a rather large industrial warehouse, so seems they have room to grow. The space inside is decorated in a sort of old west/shed sort of way, with wood, aluminum siding for roofing over the bar, and a display on the history of barbwire, the west, etc.
The food is actually catered from the next business over, so menus of what can be delivered are around the tasting room.
There are about a dozen plus tables in the space, and they could probably fit about 50 or so inside. We all enjoyed the taster flight, which included a decent range of beers, from a oatmeal stout, brown ale, red ale, DIPA, IPA, pale ale, and pilsner. Would have like to see a bit more variety, such as maybe a barley wine maybe, but all the beers offered are also bottled I believe, so seems there model is to match that. They have a Hefe, so maybe other Germans styles will be made in the future (Dopplebocks, Kolch, or others perhaps?)
Pints, growler fills, and bottles are also available. Service was great, quick, friendly & attentive.
I enjoyed most of their offerings. Not yet world class in my humble opinion, (though they have won some medals, FWIW) but good, & above average, and another small local craft brewery, welcome for the area. Also happy that my local bar, which is not 2 hours away from me as this place is, has recently started to carry fresh kegs of their beers from them too.

I just visited on Saturday night over Memorial Day weekend. We arrived before 6 PM and the place was packed. Getting served was no trouble. The place seemed to be pretty well staffed. A few different employees took the time to chat with us during our visit.
They were out of their Hurricane Deck DIPA (draft). There were plenty of bottles so I grabbed one and walked it up to the bar for an opener. I was told no bottles could be opened / consumed on premises. :(
Oh well. We had to go back across US 101 and and drown our sorrows in Dbl Jack at Firestone instead.
BTW The desk clerk at the Marriott gave us a beer tasting map that has several local stops.
