I just visited on Saturday night over Memorial Day weekend. We arrived before 6 PM and the place was packed. Getting served was no trouble. The place seemed to be pretty well staffed. A few different employees took the time to chat with us during our visit.
They were out of their Hurricane Deck DIPA (draft). There were plenty of bottles so I grabbed one and walked it up to the bar for an opener. I was told no bottles could be opened / consumed on premises. :(
Oh well. We had to go back across US 101 and and drown our sorrows in Dbl Jack at Firestone instead.
BTW The desk clerk at the Marriott gave us a beer tasting map that has several local stops.

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.
