Our second stop-off on the way down to SD. I have loved all of the beers I have had from SA so I was really looking forward to checking out their home base. We got there right after they opened and were able to snag a barrel table in the side room. It quickly filled up with lots of people, and about five dogs which was a little weird but whatever. Quality was quite high all around. Lots of nice materials used in the space and all of the beers treated with the highest of care. Service was solid. Tim greeted us as soon as we walked in, I had told him the night before at an event I was stopping in so it was a nice touch. As far as bar service, I didn’t have to wait very long for my beers when I was empty. Selection was great, 8-9 beers on including a special cask. Wish I could have gotten some bottles, I guess they ran out the day before so that sucked. Prices were good all around so no problems there. Overall an awesome brewery that I would definitely make my regular choice if I lived in the area, glad we could make the side trip to check it out.

A small tasting room, tucked away in a somewhat hard to reach corner of town. Everything's amazing about Sante Adairius, of course, but one nitpick:
They don't open until 3:00pm on weekdays. So if you're staying in Santa Cruz and want to visit, that means wading through rush hour traffic for a couple miles down the freeway. Not the end of the world, but annoying, and enough to put a damper on the excursion if you're traveling with someone - say, a wife - who may not view a trip to a brewery with the same urgency you do.

I noticed we were going to be staying about an hour away from Sante Adairius on a recent roadtrip and made it a point to get over there. Really, really glad I did. They happened to release Saison Bernice the day before we got there, which worked out pretty well. The other beers that they had on tap were really exceptional. The 831 was the standout for me that day. The atmosphere of the place is awesome. Bottleshares are going down everywhere you look and the house dog can be seen wandering around the tasting room from time to time. Not sure how quickly I'll get back over there, but I'm really glad I was finally able to check it out.
