Nice open space up front with brewing operations in the back. 9 beers on tap, with a promise that the winter beer would be tapped in a few days. A bit disappointed that they didnít have some of their better beers available. No food, nor was there a truck when we were there.

One of the two best breweries in SB (along with Pure Order). The beers were very good...11 when I visited...including an IPA and several pale ales. The place has a nice vibe for a brewery taproom...and the staff was extremely accommodating. I especially like the California Ale, the American IPA, and the Goodland Orange Pale. If you come to Santa Barbara and love craftbeer...Telegraph canít help from being on your list.

Comments: Beer seemed to be lacking with a few standouts that were drinkable. About half taps were core brands and the other half specialties/seasonals. No food truck on a Saturday afternoon was puzzling. Seemed to be a bit slow here whereas Pure Order was at capacity, another puzzling revelation given that Telegraphís beer is it another level. Staff seemed to be carefree, disconnected.

Pretty chill place. Needed a restroom stop on the drive back to LA from Barrelworks. Close to the freeway so it was a quick stop. Cool industrial hanger style building. Nice ambiance. Chill music playing. Huge brewery roped off by a yellow chain to keep wanderers at bay. 8 beers on tap with 5 bottles available. Reserve wheat sour was decent.

Updated review of new tasting room. I really like the location,vibe of this place and the staff is great, friendly and congenial. The negative is a big one if you are a hop lover though. There are no, and I mean NO beers on tap with any amounts of hops whatsoever. No IPAs , no pale ales, nuttin. The hoppiest beer was a "session ale" the was a joke. The brewer feels that hops take away from the flavor of a beer (!) says the server. The California ale is drinkable, but if you are a hop lover, you will be disappointed. This brewery is a fun place to find (literally, as it is tucked away so well that it is almost invisible from the street and I had to park and walk to find it). The owner is a great guy and the weekend tastings are intimate. When I was here a year ago and spoke with the brewer, he professed a dislike for even moderately hopped beers - not even a pale ale. (The California ale comes closest, but even here the hops are invisible). Hopheads of even the modest persuasion will be disappointed. (Note: the website now mentions a Robust Ale with hops, so I may need to return...)

Warehouse space that looks pretty drab from the outside, but inside it is quite nice. Lots of wood furniture, some barrels used as tables. They had about 8 beers on tap and a few bottles available as well. Apparently they will be doing flights/samplers, but donít have the glassware yet. Luckily the bartender was nice enough to give me a few small tastes and then I picked the beer I wanted to get a glass of. Service was pretty decent.

In an industrial area of Santa Barbara where parking can be hard to find depending on the time of day you visit. This is a new location, however its right next door to the last location. It was slow the evening I was there but it was a Tuesday evening after all. They offer half pours which makes it easier and more affordable to navigate their offerings. Overall, good experience and decent brews will make this a place Iíll come back too.
