A lot of local brews from around the region. We were just walking down State Street when we happened to come across this interesting brew house. The service is great, with a real local feel. Good hoppy IPAS! :)

You can get a liter of beer in an awesome German stein...what more do you need? This place was always good for watching games (especially Lakers games) and the food's pretty good too.

Went to the union ale house for happy hour and had a great time. Great beer and service. Could not have been better. Local clientele were very helpful as far as recommending other places to go while in Santa Barbara. We will definitely be back for more great beer but next time we will stay for dinner as the food...

This place has you order food at the bar and then it is delivered to your table. They bring their own brewed beer in from offsite. I liked their IPA because it was smooth and tasted of a traditional English style IPA. Didn't have their food but it didn't look too impressive coming out of the kitchen. Beer prices are... More

Concept of ordering your food and drinks at the bar with the bartender is a good one (though I prefer a waiter/waitress when I go to a restaurant/bar). However there should be more than one person serving the food. It took at least 30 minutes for us to receive our food. And we only ordered nachos! I felt bad for... More

Had lunch here this week with about 20 friends and family. Lot's of room, food was good, good selection of beers too! Great location to spring out for some wine tasting as it is next to SB Winery and Cork and Bottle tasting rooms. I would definitely put this on my list next time I'm in SB!!
