    Going to make the trip hopefully this weekend and wanted to know if there are some spots to check out in Ventura and Santa Barbara county on my way there/back.

    Was mainly looking for beer stops on my way to Barrelworks. Other than that one whole foods in SB doesn't look like much else. Maybe Telegraph or Figueroa Mountain. Not one bar worth checking out in all Of SB County surprise me.

    Well the title of thread was bottle shops between the 2 and Adi pretty much covered the options. As far as bars, etc there are others. Hollister brewing in Goleta is probably the best brewery in the area. Fig mtn has a tasting room on state st. Also Union Ale house in Santa Barbara has some decent taps.

    I'm confused... are you looking for bars, breweries, or bottle shops?

    Wade's is both a bottle shop and has a tasting room with dozens of beers on tap. Check the tasting room hours ahead of time though, as they are a bit funky. Ladyface is right down the street and has a couple of their sours on as of this past weekend - Guillotine and Trebuchet.

    Since the bottle shops are covered, and it sounds like your more looking for places to drink. There are actually quite a few:

    Instiution Ale house in Cammarillo
    Darryls Couch in Cammarillo
    Surf Brewing in Ventura
    Island Brewing in Carpinteria
    Enegren Brewing in Moorpark
    Draughts in Thousands Oaks
    Ladyface Alehouse in Agoura Hills, (The LAB & Wolf Creek are in Agoura as well)
    Barrel house 101 in Ventura.
    Anacapa brewing in Ventura
    Figeroua Mountain also currently has three locations, Los Olivos, Santa Barbara, and Buelton (and soon to be a 4th location as well)

    Hollister in Goleta as others have said is a very solid stop.

    "The bottle shop" in Montecito was a cool shop, they still had tons of all the 2014 FW proprietors vintage releases, Stone Fyodors, and many others that have been sold out long ago at other local shops. Prices were marked up on some bottles and normal price on others.

    Thanks for the thread and the lists. I will be making this drive in a couple months and this advice should come in handy.

    Cheers!

    Thanks again for all the bottle shop recs for my drive.

    Figured this question isn't too far off topic: what are the best taprooms/craft beer bars in Santa Barbara proper?

    I did similar research on this a few months back. The Telegraph and Figueroa Mountain tasting rooms are walking distance from each other off the main State St. drag. Only got to go to Fig Mtn, which was under the freeway closer towards the beach. Very cool space and much recommended.

    Pure Order is also right around the corner from Telegraph; I was blown away the first time I went and let down the second, so ymmv.
