Second SB stop; mainly to kill a bit of time before heading to Third Window. Who knew SB didnt even have a Del Taco? - that craving went unfulfilled. This place is on the main drag in the Old Town area. Parking a bit of a challenge but there is street parking and ramps available. Inside the place is pretty much following the Brew Pub style guide for decor, not a chainy look but definitely stereotypical. Copper top bar here as well. Flights available. Beer quality OK, other than the amber ale.

Pleasant brewpub - visited for a meal with family. Staff pleasant and friendly. Selected beers for a flight and all were good - one exceptional.

Visited on Thursday 1st May 2014 around 1230 lunchtime. Located in the centre of town SBBC is in a fairly non depscript building the brewkit is visible at the end of the bar. Medium sized venue that probably seats around 100 or so people. Service was prompt and the place wasn’t particulary busy for lunchtime. 8 beers on tap. the tasting flight was one of those annoying set ones, where you don’t get to choose the beer. 5 x 4oz, the DIPA and the 2 seasonals not included. Beers were OK, couple od duds, couple I rated at 3.4. Old school brewpub kind of place, no go to destination but if you have 30 minutes to kill you can pick up some ticks.

28 July 2013. Kind if a sports bar. Lots of tvs, music playing. Open air atmosphere even inside (big doors and windows). There are 8 of their own beers on and two guest taps. Their beers are mediocre (only had two) staff is friendly. Kind of best to be slightly surrounded by the brewing kit.

Located right on the main drag this could be a popular hang out and they have a dozen house taps as well. However, when I was there it was the middle of the day so there about 4 customers in the place. The bartender spent most of his time talking to some friends further down the bar (an entertaining conversation to listen in on since they were reciting Simpsons quotes) and didn’t pay much attention to me. Not that big of a deal to me since I’m pretty low maintenance and just need a flight and a glass of water, but I could see this bothering other people.

The beers were all pretty sweet and kind of meh. From what I’ve been told they have been through several brewers since then so it’s probably time to stop back in.

Came here on a Tuesday lunchtime in 2010 so was not very busy so we got good service and got to speak to the brewer. The IPA was superb as were the Halibut goujons. A pleasant environment to be in!

Below average brew pub, well located on State street, good food and below average beers. You can go there but do not expect a great beer experience

I found this by accident in Santa Barbara, a pleasant surprise. It’s geared up as a Sports bar with many TV’s scattered around. Their beer is quite good. Service was friendly and they were happy to chat about their beers.
