Newly expanded, and now there is plenty of room to find a table to share a beer with friends. What a friendly place, and you get great beers to go with it. No food, except on some nights there will be a gourmet food truck.

Really enjoyed spending an afternoon in this seaside brewery. Between two of us we tasted every beer they had via their samplers. Place is tucked back off the street and next to the train tracks but the atmosphere is really cool. No food to speak of but can't complain about the beer as there is something for every palate.

Friends with whom we're staying live close so we walked over after a day of shenanigans. The beer was cold and delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. Give it a try!

This brewery had very good beer and a unique venue. It is in Carpinteria, California which is a quirky little town all by itself. The brewery sits besides the railroad tracks and you can drink beer and watch the local Amtrak come in. Great atmosphere and a lot of locals.

Hands down, Island Brewery is the best Brewery in Carp, as well as SB and beyond. The Avocado Honey and Blonde Ales are my personal favorites, coupled with their phenomenal location just blocks from the beach and always attentive staff, plus the recent remodel, this is by far the best Brewery in a small town with 2 others just minutes...

Good selections of micro brews. Casual and friendly atmosphere. Games available to play. Would be 5 star if there were some free snacks on the tables or a little cheaper prices, but it is well worth checking out.

Been coming to Island Brewing for years since they started up 15 years ago; always a great experience. They have doubled/expanded their patio and indoor seating, and it is a great setting. The beer lineup is awesome; they're were 11 available on tap and the ones we drank were excellent.
