I visited the Brewery and Tasting room for the first time in June 2018 on a Thursday afternoon about 5pm. There were only about 5 other customers, so I grabbed one of the stools at the small bar. Luckily for me, West Ashley was on tap, and the others at the bar were eager to regale the qualities of Sante Adairius. It was a great combination of world class beer and beer geekery.

Between my visit to the taproom and the Santa Cruz Portal (about 10 minutes away), I came away amazed at the skills of the brewers of Sante Adairius. The IPAs were delicious, and the wild ales were world class. I'm trying to think of a brewery I've visited that had overall such high quality across a range of styles, and I can't think of one. Sante Adairius is a true gem, and worth a visit even if it means going out of your way.

This review is for their location in Santa Cruz. I went with my wife and son on a Saturday afternoon. Crowded, but nice relaxed vibe. Stood in line to get beer. Not too long, but longer than I would like. Nice, but not overly friendly. Beer was excellent and they had games to play. Will be back.

Really loved this place, had that low-key Santa Cruz vibe.

The beers were excellent and the service was good. They also have it where you can get Apto's BBQ delivered which is nice.

There is not a huge selection of beers on the board, but they did have a couple IPA's, sours and one porter available when I was there.

Based on the quality of their beers I will be stopping by whenever I am in town.

Google maps is useful to find this if you aren't from around the area. Once there the bartender was friendly although the brewer didn't seem particularly interested in chatting up the place. Which was ok because the beer was great and it was relaxing just being there. Hours are kind of odd from mid afternoon through the early evening but I was on vacation so it didn't matter. Wish there'd been more bottles to go.
