Small little brewery tucked away in an industrial area in Capitola, The brewer, Tim and his partner Adair, open up the tasting room on the weekends only. This little place is a gem and is worth searching out if you are in the Santa Cruz area, as they make the best beer in the County. Service is great and the knowledge of what is on tap is superior to most tasting rooms. The specialty here is Belgian style and they are all very good. As of the end of July, 2012, they are now open Thursday and Friday also, 4-8pm.

Itís not too often when I am completely blown away by a brewery. And these guys delivered. Over two visits, I tried; Belgian Single, 831 IPA, two different saisons, a dark rye beer, and a sour stout with cherries. All were really really nice, with the LucyBelle saison being one of the best american saisons I have ever had the pleasure of trying. Half pours available, which was nice as I wanted to try a lot of different stuff. The guys there were willing to answer the odd questions I had. Tiny little place (I could see it getting really packed) in an odd area, but well worth the visit to try these beers. These guys are truly killing it.

Cool little place just of PCH between Santa Cruz and Monterrey. Nice amount of spacing inside, with a few additional spots in one section of their brewery, which is basically just a small garage. Lots on draft, some saisons, some hoppy things a sour and a stout. Half pours were available, which is nice. Their beers were really good. Kind of in a weird end of the road warehouse part of town.

AdamJackson and I were lucky enough to meet bytemesis at Sante and shared a few great brews. Small place tucked away in a business park. The tasting room was small and cozy (of course we stopped in on a weekday afternoon) They are dog friendly so I have an appreciation for that, since my dogs are like my children. They do not offer taster samples but they do half pours which means if you have a few people in your group it still works out. Anybody stopping here knows what they will be experiencing with the beer. I hope to return someday!

Stopped by with the wife and kids on a Saturday afternoon. Wasnít super crowded around 3:30pm but by the time we left at 5pm it was pretty packed. Probably the worst thing about this and what I took a lot of points off for is that they are "dog friendly". This would be one thing if dogs were allowed to be on the patio (which they donít really have but they could let the dogs be outside). Instead the dogs are allowed to run wild. There were at least 3 dogs just running all over the place. This is a big pain when it is already packed and you are now tripping over mutts.

There were 10 beers on tap in a number of styles. No bottles available but the beer was nice. Somewhat unimpressed with most but that might just be a warped opinion since I had seen all the hype on beer bro sites about their saisons and bottled beer.

The service was great for how busy they were. The fact that they only do half pours and full pours probably speeds things along as you arenít having a line of tickers out the door doing a flight of everything, never ordering a full beer.

Nice place and Iíd hope the dog thing could be addressed or they could get a little bigger space.

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.

Nice little place, like other said, in a industrial park. Two rooms, one with bar one with tables, nothing fancy, but itís not dull either. Service was good, but in someways it would be almost deliberate to give bad service because how small it is. Beers were all good, just donít know what you find here day to day. At least two kegs kicked while I was there, but weíre replace by something else different. No food, no tpcarts or trucks, but I was there in a Tuesday afternoon so maybe no time for that. Fair prices on things and they do half pours which I like when Iím trying a new place. Overall itís a nice place to hang, locals were friendly, a bottle share broke out while I was there. Hope to here only more good things from these guys

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.

Our second stop-off on the way down to SD. I have loved all of the beers I have had from SA so I was really looking forward to checking out their home base. We got there right after they opened and were able to snag a barrel table in the side room. It quickly filled up with lots of people, and about five dogs which was a little weird but whatever. Quality was quite high all around. Lots of nice materials used in the space and all of the beers treated with the highest of care. Service was solid. Tim greeted us as soon as we walked in, I had told him the night before at an event I was stopping in so it was a nice touch. As far as bar service, I didnít have to wait very long for my beers when I was empty. Selection was great, 8-9 beers on including a special cask. Wish I could have gotten some bottles, I guess they ran out the day before so that sucked. Prices were good all around so no problems there. Overall an awesome brewery that I would definitely make my regular choice if I lived in the area, glad we could make the side trip to check it out.

Very chill location. Itís a business park, the brewery itself is small. decor is nice and the tap handles are wicked awesome. there are food carts and outdoors seating. beers are also pretty good and prices were average.

Located in an industrial area next to the highway, this brewpub has a small bar with 3 stools and a few small tables. They are expanding into an adjacent room with more tables and a second restroom. Itís a cozy and friendly place and almost all of their beers are excellent. Lots of growler business.
