Reviewed 30 April 2018

With several good breweries in the Santa Cruz area, this one stands out with traditional English ales. And...hand pulled, just like in the UK. Also an Irish smooth red ale.
And, "Katie" is a great positive helpful bar tender. A very welcome touch in Santa Cruz.

This brew pub has amazing British-style beers that are "pulled" from old-style taps that give a wonderful nitro-like head. The beer is superb. The food comes from next door and is also very good. All in all, this place is an off-the-beaten trail gem that has not yet been overrun by the touristy crowd.

We went to ECBC to get a burger and beer while our kids were swimming at Simpkins. We just had an hour but ECBC was perfect. We got burger boxes for ourselves and ate them there and we got boxes to go for the swimmers. Burgers came from US Meals next door but you can order and pay at ECBC and they were delivered right to our table. I had onion rings with mine and they were very tasty. The fries were also good. We had the 1/4 pound burgers and the size was just right. The place is bright and open and had a neighborhood hangout feel. There were families with small children enjoying the roomy atmosphere and the vibe was very relaxed. Will definitely go again.

Open just eight months, we were attracted to the idea of English style ales, brewed on premises. Served cool, not icy, and hand drawn, not carbonated. $7.00 pints. Food is picnic style ordered from the U.S. Meal menu and delivered in. Most items on the menu are under $12. The facility itself is converted warehouse, hard floors and a view of the brew house in the back. Go for the ales.
