4.31/5  rDev -8.3%

A small brewery located in an industrial area in Capitola. The owners are fantastic people, I got to know Tim a bit when he worked at Seven Bridges. The tasting room is quite small, a few tables and chairs. They also usually put some tables out in the parking lot out in front of the brewery. They usually have 4-6 beers on tap and a couple of bottles available. They do growler fills but because of limited supply they usually only have one of their beers available for growler fills. They have also had problems having beers available for tasting but seem to have more supply lately. They also just posted some pictures on their Facebook page of several large fermenters being unloaded so it looks like their capacity will be increasing shortly. No food.

The beer is fantastic. Their 831 IPA is great. They make a lot of different saisons. They have relationships with a lot of wine makers which allows them to age a lot of stuff in wine barrels. It will be fun to follow them as they grow as they have already developed quite a following.

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.
