I stop by Island Brewing in Carpenteria every time I travel Hwy 101 and am never disappointed. This place is a little difficult to find for first timers, tucked behind a warehouse near the railroad tracks. But once you find it, you'll see that it's a pretty cool spot.

They have a comfortable no frills tap room and patio area with a good selection of beers available on a regular basis. Pretty much everything from a Blonde to a Stout and everything in between. My constant favorite has been their Jubilee Ale. They are now making some pretty good BA stuff, be sure to check it out.

They keep a pretty good selection of their bottle on hand, very reasonably priced too. Be sure to check out the "buy a friend a beer" board. Cool spot.

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.

Tastes like peas! Stay away if you don't like this taste! I hate it! Purchased from avocado festival and tried to get used to the flavor but it just got worse and worse :(
