Local beer lovers will fall head over heels for the two dozen brew labels we’re serving up and down the Central Coast. 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? Or, monkey around with some new-to-you beers at Zoo Brew. From hearty stouts to mouth-puckering IPAs, you’re sure to find something to tickle the taste buds.
