Santa Cruz Ale Works has a small tasting bar where you can buy pints, growlers and kegs, with usually just their standard four beer on tap. Itís just a small room with a bar at the front door of the brewery, and they donít have any food or anything. The brewery is pretty much a one man operation with some help, so hours are limited and definitely not regular. Definitely call before coming by, and never assume that anyone will be there. Iíve stopped by multiple times while in the area only to find no one around.

June 2009. A nice little tasting room serves as the front door to this little brewery in a strip-mall-slash-industrial-park place. The day I was there, the only two guys working there (brewer/owner and another brewer) were hanging out with us in the tasting room. They had as much fun as we did just chatting beer and tasting some of their really good beer -- definitely among the best available in the area.
