The craft beer movement is alive and well at Santa Barbara breweries with special seasonal brews, IPAs, brown ales, lagers, and traditional beers brewed daily.

Santa Barbara Breweries

Local beer lovers will fall head over heels for the two dozen brew labels we’re serving up and down the Central Coast. Head over to Pure Order Brewing Company in downtown Santa Barbara for a taste of traditional beers made with hops grown on-site. Like a bite to eat with your beer? Enjoy lunch or dinner at Hollister Brewing Company in Goleta or father-son owned Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company in the Funk Zone where food orders from neighboring Lucky Penny restaurant delivers for free.

If you’re looking to try a little bit of everything, plan your trip around one of the many beer festivals hosted every year. Kick back with Brews On The Beach, because what’s better than an ice-cold beer on a perfect beach day? Monkey around with some new-to-you beers at Zoo Brew or enjoy the fresh air and great outdoors at the Santa Barbara Beer Festival. From hearty stouts to mouth-puckering IPAs, you’re sure to find something to tickle the taste buds.
