Figeroa Mountain Brewing Co, in Buelton on Industrial way, just off the 246. If your near Solvang, the Firestone Walker tasting room, and or Anderson's Pea Soup, then your a mile or two from this brewery.

I believe they have been open just over 1 year. Anyhow, visited back on Labor Day Weekend with family & friends. We actually just walked from our camp ground at Flying Flags RV park, since it was 1 mile flat away. Place is towards the end of the road, on the right, in a rather large industrial warehouse, so seems they have room to grow. The space inside is decorated in a sort of old west/shed sort of way, with wood, aluminum siding for roofing over the bar, and a display on the history of barbwire, the west, etc.

The food is actually catered from the next business over, so menus of what can be delivered are around the tasting room.

There are about a dozen plus tables in the space, and they could probably fit about 50 or so inside. We all enjoyed the taster flight, which included a decent range of beers, from a oatmeal stout, brown ale, red ale, DIPA, IPA, pale ale, and pilsner. Would have like to see a bit more variety, such as maybe a barley wine maybe, but all the beers offered are also bottled I believe, so seems there model is to match that. They have a Hefe, so maybe other Germans styles will be made in the future (Dopplebocks, Kolch, or others perhaps?)

Pints, growler fills, and bottles are also available. Service was great, quick, friendly & attentive.

I enjoyed most of their offerings. Not yet world class in my humble opinion, (though they have won some medals, FWIW) but good, & above average, and another small local craft brewery, welcome for the area. Also happy that my local bar, which is not 2 hours away from me as this place is, has recently started to carry fresh kegs of their beers from them too.

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.
