One of my favorite places to get a beer. The view of the ocean is great. The weather is almost always perfect. The service is great. A fun place that, once you find it, you will surely return to. I lived in Carpinteria for a while, and I loved getting to know this place and the locals that fill it. Local art work for sale on the walls. Local music here and there. Dog friendly. I'm in Santa Barbara now, but I still get in here about once a month. 2 thumbs up!

This place is all about the location. Being able to look out over a grassy field and seeing the sunset every evening is what it's about. The interior is nothing to talk about, the furniture is unique and very crafty (some of it that is.)

The service is that of little effort but not rude by any means. Waiting at the bar for a beer is never a long or impossible feat. Table service is random.

Though there is no food, the occasional food truck will show up and have some tasty treats.

Accidentally found this place, while strolling Carpinteria beach, without knowing it was there. Looked like just a little beach bar from the outside, but we wandered in and discovered it was a brewery. Score! Island Brewing beers aren't necessarily at the top of my list in general, but we tried a sampler..some brew better than others. But over all it's a fun little place, that gets really packed. They close pretty early too, but worth a stop, if you're on a Cali Brew Tour, if nothing else it's novel.
