There is an interesting story about why this place exists. Originally this was to be a brewery. Problem is that Buellton is in Santa Barbara County and this county is anti-business with a capital A. The county wouldn't give them a permit to operate a brewery so they made it in to a taproom and restaurant instead.

To get here take the "Avenue Of The Flags" Exit off Hwy 101 and it is right there on the East Side of the freeway.

The interior is a cross of lots of oak and brushed steel and chrome in what is your basic sports bar. Both bar and tables space is available.

As of right now the place is not yet finished, the restaurant part is being installed. The restaurant will go in the big room that was going to be brewing space.

So basically what they feature is their beers super fresh on tap and 2 beers that are not bottled.

If you stop here you must try their IPA and their Unfiltered Double Barrel Ale.

Beer is $3.50 for a 16-oz glass and $15 for a growler or $10 to fill your growler.

I will re-review this place after the restaurant starts up, which is supposed to be in June.
