Buellton location -- I believe they have a location in Santa Barbara, too.

I visited on a late Sunday afternoon in early August (in case there are seasonal effects).

I stopped in while in area primarily for wine tastings. It was a pretty standard bar area with excellent beers, friendly people and helpful and knowledgeable service. I bought a few bottles to bring home -- I would have happily bought much more but shipping home from California adds a lot of cost per bottle.

I did not try the food while we were there, although we eat at Gino's pizza which delivers there. The pizza was very good recovery food from a hard day of tasting.

I will definitely stop in again next time I am in the area.

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.
