Great spot with great quality food from their adjoining restaurant! Pretty good seasonal/year-round selection, would like to see more experimental dark brews in the future!

The interior of this place is quite nice, good wood motif, decent amount of seating and to-go bottle list selection was also cool. Few of the pluses: They do flights for $8 for four 4. oz pours (which is a good deal imo). They also sell a lot of the bottles they're pouring there. If they don't have bottles of it this place has a crowler canning machine and the beertender informed me they would do fills of any of their beers on draught (though that some would be pricier than others, obviously.)

The cons of this taproom are the location, there's just nowhere to fucking park! My father and I came on a Monday around 1 PM in the afternoon and there was literally NO parking. I would expect it on a Friday evening but at this hour it's a bit ridiculous. I feel like in order for this taproom to truly be good it would need to move somewhere where there's enough parking or buy up some more space for parking because the inconvenience of getting to this taproom makes me not want to return.

Really nice place for high quality beers and excellent vibe. We stopped off before hitting our hotel for a few beers. We had the Danish Red, Black IPA, Imperial Brown and Bohemian Pils. All were solid with the Black IPA being outstanding. We will be back.

The main brewery is a must stop if you are in the area. They usually have at least 10 of their beers on tap and some bottles for purchase to go. There is seating inside and patio seating outside. I believe they offer tours of the brewery at certain times. Service has always been pleasant but it can take a while to get beer if they are busy.

Maybe not my favorite beers ( nothing to complain about, they're tasty enough) but the staff was excellent. Would come back just for the service... And beers.

Visited the Santa Barbara location. Full selection of the beers while watching nfl football. Ordered food through bartender from lucky penny which has great pizza. Excellent afternoon of beer and food. Great service.

A must if you are in SB and looking for some beer.

I can't stop in any town in America without paying a visit to a local brewery, and of those in Santa Barbara, this is the one I was most interested in checking out.

When I arrived with the family, the place was packed and a band was rocking out, making for a very loud establishment. No biggie, but surprising considering it was the afternoon.

As I usually do, I start with a flight for myself and find the sweetest beer available for my wife. My wife wasn't crazy about the wheat beer I chose for her, but I found plenty to like with the flight. Based on what I recall and a little help from the Untappd app, here's my impression of the beers I tried:

Lizard's Mouth- A Double IPA. I enjoyed this and found it very easy to put back. It was well-balanced and, surprisingly, wasn't the typical West Coast Hop Bomb. It was still very approachable. 4/5

Monkey's with Typewriters Rye- As the name suggests, this is a rye, and a decent one. My recollection is that I wasn't getting the rye spice that I wanted and that the hops were pretty subdued as well. Still, it was good enough. I gave it 3.5/5

Stearn's Irish Dry Stout- This isn't a style I don't see too much, but I did enjoy it. I recall a strong dark malt presence and hints of coffee with almost no sweetness. 4/5

Big Cone Black Ale- This was good and it required a second, full, pour. A moderately hoppy beer with dark malts that provided some hints of chocolate and toffee. 4/5

Davy Brown Ale- This was a run-of-the-mill brown ale. I enjoyed it, but didn't find anything unique about it. 3.5/5

Also, while up north in the town of Cambria, I had a pour of Fig Mountain's 3rd Anniversary Stout. The beer was very robust and complex in its flavors, with lots of oakiness, chocolate, vanilla, toffee and coffee notes (it's a stout and I believe it's aged in bourbon barrels, although I didn't detect a lot of bourbon notes, but I'd just had a Bourbon County before trying this). The beer was tasty and I'd certainly have enjoyed more, but when I was at the brewery they only had it in bottles and it was selling for $23. Whoa! Fig Mountain, I like your stuff, but there are a number of barrel-aged imperial stouts I like much more and some as cheap as $9 a bottle, so I couldn't justify this price. Anyway, the beer has sold well, so the locals are happy.

Finally, the service was friendly enough, so no complaints there. I don't recall seeing food, so beware coming hungry.
