Came here after a long hike with our dog, grabbed a seat outside and they were real quick to bring out menus and a dog menu. Whenever I started walking towards the chalkboard of daily taps by the entrance, my server walked out to see how she could help and had good recs. ribs were great, PB pie was delicious, my dog loved the frozen marrow bone and water bowl and beers were great. It was so nice I came back the next day and am writing this review at the bar.

The place to go for Sunday brunch. Good food, whether it's off the menu or off of the weekend buffet. It can get crowded at times, especially on a warm summer day. Service is hit or miss, depending on how busy they are. The staff is usually courteous and helpful but can sometimes get overwhelmed by the volume of customers.

Most of the beers I've had are good. Nothing great, but nothing to complain about either.

If you're a dog owner, bring Fido along and eat on the patio. They even have a separate dog menu.

Stayed at Brisas del Mar and this place was 2 blocks away, so for the location was good. It's easy to miss. It's not the Neighborhood bar on the corner, go past that 1/2 a block. They didn't go for anything fancy with the decor, they just focused on making some outstanding beer. It reminded me of some of the brewpubs I've been to in Colorado Springs, kinda rugged but great product. I had the Dubbel and thought it was fantastic. The nachos were nice, but not Freebird's quality. The next day I came back and had the honey brown, VERY nice. The wait staff seemed decent, not overly chatty though.The beer menu had penty of variety.

If you want a decent brew pub experience, you'll be happy with SB Brewing Company. If you want some amazing beer with eclectic atmosphere, come here.

Went here for a pint (no food) to check the place out. A little out of the way from the normal tourist areas of SB.

The atmosphere in here is definitely the low point. The place is fairly run down and normally would be a place that I would walk right by without even considering going in to it for a beer.

The beer selection was quote impressive. I had a porter that was quite tasty. The selection contained about 12 or so beers and included a pilsener, apricot wheat, porter, IPA, DIPA, Saison, a couple of other Belgian style beers and one or two others that escape my mind.

Prices were very good - $4.50 for my pint. Service was friendly but didn't seem too interested in talking about the beer with me.
