Finally, a new brewery worth getting excited about! Nice selection of house brews ranging from well above average to excellent in quality - all solid and well crafted. I may be a little biased in that they’re brewing a good selection of what I want to drink: Belgians, porters, sours, and an outstanding west coast IPA. Prices are quite reasonable and kind of on the low side for the quality of beer. Nice comfortable tasting room focused on relaxing with a good beer and a good music selection: Wilco, Talking Heads, &c. The service is fantastic. My sort of place.

This is the best brewery in Santa Cruz County. Actually in my opinion it is the third best brewery in all of northern california. Awesome little place that just opened. The brewer is an awesome guy that is just a home-brewer at heart. You rarely walk in and see the same beers twice. He does mostly bretted beers ranging in all styles, a lot of farmhouse ales, barrel aged beers. And he does some awesome IPAs. My new favorite place to hang out. The guy that wrote the directions to the place is not a local so he doesn’t know the right way to get there. Going south on 1 take park avenue exit and turn right on park ave. You turn left on Park Avenue if you are on 1 North. At the stop sign you make a right on kennedy. At the second stop sign you make a right, next to the church, kennedy actually continues that way, even though straight should be kennedy it is not. Follow that road to the end and the most modern building you see in the area has the tap room. They are open Thurs.-Friday 4-8, and Sat. 12-8, and Sunday 12-6. Awesome place!!!

What can I say about this place. Not only does SARA make the best beer for 100 miles in any direction, they’ve built an incredible community, and I don’t say that lightly. Everything here is the best.

Finally made it to this place, and it is worth the hype that is starting to build. Its a tiny little place, but is crowded on a Saturday afternoon. They run six taps, and most everything is in such small batches that they will only do growler fills on one of them. They don’t have growlers, so bring your own. Beers are amazing, service is small town friendly, prices are cheap. No taster flights, but half pours are only 3-4$.

I love this place. Great owners and staff with great, creative beer. Its dog friendly and my dog loves this place as well. It can get crowded and loud but you can usually find a quiet corner.

Tiny oasis out in a weird part of town. Once you get settled though it unfolds into a tiny paradise of beer. Usually good people around and always amazing brews. Polite and knowledgeable service. Right now this is a hidden gem by international beer people standards.

I’m so glad this place is here now! Capitola has been one of our favorite places to go for years with the only negative thing being…no good beer! Not anymore. Word has been spreading about the amazing farmhouse and wild ales coming from SARA and for good reason. If I were to open a brewery, this is how I would do it. A very nice, small tasting room with a small section of parking lot roped off with more barrels and stools. Most of the time there’s locals sharing beers and chatting. I always meet some friendly characters here. The service is top notch. All the employees are so enthusiastic and passionate about the beers. The only negative at this point is that sometimes they run out of beer because of the small operation. That will change now that they added more tanks. You can order beers by the pint, half pint, or sample all of them. This place is worth going out of your way for.

To start off, the best beer in the Monterey Bay area by far. You need to look to the better brewers in NorCal for a real comparison. The tasting room is small but inviting, with some interesting light fixtures, a few barrels for tables and a bar with room for about six people. The staff manning the taps, very often consisting solely of Tim, the brewer, are very friendly and attentive. The regulars are also friendly and generous, on a couple of occasions having shared their own bottles they brought in with others like me who were complete strangers. There seems to usually be an IPA available for wide appeal but the other three or four choices range from saison to imperial stout to wine barrel-aged sour. Fantastic beer, good people, and a personal bonus that it’s a short walk from my house.

A really cool brewery with a lot of good beers. Great service. Definitely glad I drove down from San Francisco to stop in here. Would highly recommend.
