Lots of beers on tap as well as in bottles to choose from. The selection also changes regularly. We got the 'special' pizza. Everything you'd want for sure. Taste was perfect!! It was so large we ate some there and took the rest home to become another meal. Close to Funk Zone on State St.

The wings and burgers are amazing here. The service is decent, which is why they only got 4 out of 5. Stop by if you are in the area, open late.

If it's busy, give it a miss. No complaints about either the burgers or the beer. However, there was a group in and, having ordered we had to wait for well over an hour for the food to arrive. All they needed to do was say we might need to wait an hour and we could so easily have moved... More

The beer was great! The atmosphere was fun! We sat at the bar and I must say the bartender was totally slammed since right after we came in a group doing a pub crawl came in, but she handled things great. We had a wonderful time.

We sat down at the window, facing the people on State Strret. Enjoyed good brew, really classy burger and liked the athmosphere in the bar, mixing micro-brewery style with classic sportsbar. Good value, good fun

We felt like the waitress would have preferred we ordered from the bar. Didn't tell us about any specials, even though it was happy hour. The food was ok, bottle of Bud Light was $5. All in all, as a couple from out of town, wish we had chosen somewhere else. Save your money...

Previous reviewer seemed a bit over the top. We were greeted by nice bartenders and were treated well. The wings and salad we enjoyed thoroughly. The place was referred to by a friend who steered us to many great places in Santa Barbara. Thanks for the nice night out Union Ale Brew House.

This place should only be experienced at night, when even ugly women look like 10's. In raw daylight, it's dirty in the corners, a smell of sanitizer hangs in the air, and the nearly empty bar/restaurant is half closed, like the eyes of the barman/waiter. Inappropriately loud music probably not turned down from the night before makes it hard to... More

Pig candy (aka brown sugar bacon) omgosh...fried onions, baby kale, garlic steak sauce.... I can't even continue without my mouth watering. While I didn't have any beer, it looked like... More
