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.

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.

I typically don't bother with reviews but this place is quite special so I figured why not. The vibe is chill and the set up is done in good taste.
Everyone is friendly and yes children are ok which makes it even better for parents of little ones. Dogs are allowed as well. All the dogs seem to have obedient training because no issues what so ever. The dogs were also just hanging out.
The beers are on point and balanced. Too bad this scene did not exist while I attended UC Santa Cruz. Keep it up SARA. A+

My visit and experience at SARA was incredible. Very good selection and variety of beers on tap. Growler's weren't available for purchase, but if you brought an empty (1L or 2L) growler, you were able to purchase fills. The only thing that made me frown was them not having any bottles to-go for purchase.

This place is definitely a great place to sit down, relax, and drink a beer. They open up the back of the brewery to handle extra guest and allow you to bring your dogs in to chill out with you. the furniture is made from beach wood and the building isn't that hard to find. On days when they release bottles, parking is a little hard to find but well worth it once you get what you need.
