Great service, cute little room, always tasting fun beers and wine, knowledgable staff, laid back atmosphere, great beer club, and excellent selection with frequent turnover. A beer enthusiast has the best opportunity to find something world-class, rare, or sought after (or any combination of those) here more than any other place in Santa Barbara County.

Stayed for 3 nights at the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn & Spa and this great little wine/beer store is attached.
All beers are at the back of the store on custom racking and shelving; none are refrigerated but the store was very cool, guess it has to be for the wines (?).
Nice selection of SoCal, PNW, East Coast, Belgium, English & German ales. Some stand outs were the Lips of Faith range, Lost Abbey, Port Brewing, Left Coast, Allagash & Shipyard. There really is a lot of great selection, and of this week (1st week Feb) the store now has 100 different ales/lagers for sale....and no BMC!!!
Pricing was extremely reasonable. $2 to $4 cheaper than the store further up the road, and similar stores down in Santa Barbara.
Staff was very helpful, friendly & knew his beers.
Wish Iíd known this place was here before buying most of my beers down in Santa Barbara; would have saved myself at least 25%!!
