We came to this restaurant by accident while walking across the main street of santa barbara. I really loved the place, a real brewery with large screens showing many different sports. Unfortunately I don't like beer so I can't judge anyone of their homemade brews but I really loved their blue cheese burger. We ordered also a Margarita but I... More

This has a nice bar atmosphere but the food is far from bar food. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked wonderful.

We stopped there for lunch during our state street walk and were very pleased with our choice. I had the Hanger steak and it was cooked to perfection! My green beans were delicious and my blonde beer was chilly and light! It was a perfect meal in a perfect day! If you're in Santa Barbara, you have to check this... More

Our Philadelphia Eagles were playing a Monday night game. We found this place and ended up having the best time. The food, the service, the people...even a few other Eagles fans! Such a good find!!

Good beer, very good food, and good service. We've never been disappointed here. A little on the pricey side, but worth the money. I'm hooked on their pizzas.

Popped in for a quick lunch & brew. The family, with teenage kids, loved the brew house. The light meals were quick & tasty, service great and the beer cold. Great place to spend an afternoon

Great restaurant to visit with the family at the end of a long day! My husband and I enjoyed the beer sampler (would have been better if we could have picked which beers to sample, probably should have asked). We were enjoyed watching our favorite baseball teams on the various tv's. I was very happy to be able to watch... More

Husband & I just walking by enjoying an evening stroll down State St. We were lured in by the "buzz" & decided to give it a try. It was crowded but we quickly figured out why; The food & drinks knocked our socks off!

Enjoyed the sample of beer flavors, including a Thai-inspired saison, though I didn't like the one with pomegranate flavoring. I didn't eat there, so have no opinion of the food.
