Here is a little tip for first timers or out of town visitors. Park where you think you should park and then head toward the train tracks. You won't actually see the brewery until you are actually right up on it. The best thing about Island Brewing is the location. Great ocean view not far from the beach. Medium size... More

This place was recommended to us by some locals near the beach and it was a pleasant find. The bar was always busy and has a great atmosphere, relaxing and laid back. They serve a great selection of beers including a taster tray with a selection of different beers in small glasses which is a great idea. Every now and... More

Small, cozy, beer pub, down that the railroad tracks in Carpenteria..There are tables outside, and you can wait for the train, which is CLOSE, feet, to the tables. What fun there. The beers were fun to taste, with lots of fun, different tastes to choose. Had an avocado beer, wow, and they give you tastes of all. Come in and... More

Many of our local trips to Carpenteria have been to local hiking trails in and around this town. We decided to change up and have lunch and a beer. We entered off of Linden there is a sign that reads Fresh Beer! With out two dogs in tow we saw the water dish outside and parked the pooches outside. The... More

Island has a variety of beers that should appeal to just about any particular taste. I prefer a one of the hoppier beers, so I'm quick to jump on the IPA. I'm also liking of the Night Sail lately. The large assortment of beers will certainly keep you busy tasting until you find one that i to your liking. The... More

So super cool spot, great attitude from the entire staff I met. It's awesome to watch the trains pass by, and it's just a great way to pass some time. No food served, but grab some food from The Spot across the street and bring it over, they were cool with that. For me, the beers were just a miss.... More

Today, Saturday, my buddy and I took a quick stop at the Island Brewery. Man, the IPA is out of this world. And, there was a guest keg from New Zealand (if I remember correctly) and it was fantastic as well. If you are in Carp for any reason, I highly recommend a stop in the tasting room. Also, I... More

This is one of the best boozing experiences in Southern California. A no nonsense bar manned by 3 or 4 bar persons inside the brewery, with an outdoor terrace right alongside the railroad tracks near Carpinteria RR station. Traffic at the bar on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights is so heavy it can often take 10 minutes to get served... More
