“great beer”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Loved the sampler. Great location just a hop from the beach, along the romantic train track in Carp.

“Island Paradise”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Cool place but a little hard to find. We parked on Linden and walked around to the entrance which was near the train tracks. The weather was awesome and perfect for sitting inside or outside on the patio with a refreshing beverage. Friends and dogs are welcome as this place is a pet friendly establishment.

I tried the 5 taster set for $8. The Starry Night Stout was my favorite and a GABF gold medal winner in 2012. They offer pints, 22oz beers, bottles to go and growler fills.

This brewery might not be on any tropical island but the aura makes you feel like you could be. Thanks for the hospitality bar keeps :)

“Microbrew done right”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

Stopped at this industrial niche of a microbrew bar with friends and family the evening after running the Santa Barbara Half Marathon. Beer is served in a simple room at the rear of the brewing facility. The garage door opens to views of Amtrak's Surfliner tracks and an oceanfront park beyond that. The menu offered a dozen or so beers with complimentary samplers. Other than snacks, no food was available, but local takeout menus were handy - call and have a pizza delivered to your table! This was clearly a local's place and gave us a good feel for the Carpinteria vibe. Oh, and the beer was yummy, too!

“Great beer, great ambience”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Very nice spot. Industrial building. Nice and very different beers - be sure to taste a sample before buying a glass, as some of the beers are very special.
