Located in a large mall, this airy and modern restaurant and bar offers 13 of their beers on tap, along with a decent menu of bar food. Their specialty seems to be IPAs, and they have some good ones. There is an attractive bar with a dozen stools and two flat screen TVs. There are also a couple dozen tables and a long counter with stools. The barkeep who served me was friendly, but didnít know a lot about the beers. A must visit place if in Santa Barbara.
Hands down best beer place in Goleta/Santa Barbara. Easy to get to with a car but not really by bus. Staff is so friendly and the beer is great. Great happy hour and daily specials, Monday pint night, Saturday growler for so cheap! Food is also pretty good, love the taquitos! Blonde lady working at the bar is the best and most friendly bartender she always remembers me and my friends and treats us so well!
Ok so I gather this is not that unusual in the US but for me this is more about drinking craft beer from a restaurant in a corner of a massive car park of a shopping centre. Funny thing is the product is pretty good! The beer is decent, the food is at least good and it all kinda hangs together. 6 sampler flight at $7 is excellent value; other beers run at $5 to $7. Beers good but not great.
Nice Brewpub/Restaurant located in a mall in Goleta. Before Coming i heard bad na good thngs about this place. Well i have to say I really emjoyed everithing!! Nice beers (the pope ipa was really good),nice staff, and good food.. What else you can ask for?!? Check it out...
Located in a shopping mall complex. Patio seating, partly sunny, partly shaded. Umbrellas can be opened over each table that is in the sun. The inside is characterized by a flat black, concrete floor with a larger dining area than bar area. Wait staff seemed a bit discombobulated. It was busy, but not full. Iím not eating, but as I look around, the fare seems more among the pub food variety. A decent selection of brews. Full bar available too. Not a bad place, just not very good either.
Big restaurant/brewpub located in a shopping center right off the freeway. They are constantly releasing new beers which is cool and they are usually decent. The food looks really appealing on the menu but is usually pretty poorly made. Service from the waitresses in the restaurant is usually below average and their beer knowledge is a non-existent, however the bartenders are much better
We visited this place late 2011 after a round of Golf at Sandpiper. Brewery is located in a shopping area which does not create a great atmosphere. However we were very positively surprised by their beer selection and beer quality. Burgers are very good!
Visited 5 times now, most recently last night (12/21/12).
The place is always full and noisy and the service is often times slow, but itís a fun place to hang out which is why there are so many people in there. Well that might because this is place is in Isla Vista which is a major party town (UCSB).
The food is pretty good and prices are decently high, which is what Iíd expect from a busy successful restaurant. Beer prices are high too but now theyíve shrunk the sample sizes so you pay less even if you are still paying the same per ounce of beer.
The beer is usually pretty good. There have been a couple of duds here and there but most of their beers are nice. The "white IPA" is good, the 543 Toronado IPA is good (really good), hell, all their hoppy beers are good. Noah from Pizza Port San Clemente is now the brewer there which would explain why the hoppy beers are getting better. The other styles are nice too.
Despite the scores being low in the other categories I enjoy this place and will continue to come back when passing through Santa Barbara.
Located in a shopping center just off of 101. Pretty easy to spot. Nice spacious interior, plenty of patio seating. The bar is straight ahead, sort of a bent L shape. The bar staff has always been friendly. They do flights of 6 of all their house beers, of which there are many. The beers are usually pretty good and the prices are quite fair on beer. Food is nice, but a little pricey.
