The Brewery has a rustic brink and wood look, with an actual working brew house. They make their beer onsite, which is super cool. My favorite was their Rincon Red and Old Town Nut Brown. I had there fish tacos with black beans and they were excellent. My husband had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. We checked out... More

Stopped in for a beer and a quick bite while spending the day in Santa Barbara. Drinks were good. The only food we had was the sliders from the appetizer menu but they were delicious. Service was prompt and friendly.

We stopped in for drinks and appetizers on a busy afternoon. The waitress had no concept of the drink specials nor if a Riesling was available from the bar (English as a second language challenges).

I'm a little disappointed. The beer was fantastic as it always was, but the food was not what I remember. The carnitas taco was bland & dry, I couldn't eat it. The blonde beer & pineapple IPA were great!! Service was good.

We had a table at the window with an excellent view of farmers market. The meal was very good, we had the taco special of the day, $2.50 a piece and a blackened salmon salad. Most excellent Rob Roy cocktail. Service was very good, greeted immediately. Great experience
