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. Enjoy a refreshing pint at Captain Fatty’s 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 ways Santa Barbara celebrates beer. Set out to sea on a Sipping on the Sea cruise with Santa Barbara Sailing Center, a two-hour sailing cruise held each month that features a local brewery or winery on board. 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.
