Matt Kettmann


Mixology Mini-Magazine


This week, Matt Kettmann ditches his wine glass and picks up a lowball to explore Santa Barbara’s growing craft bartending scene. Our obscure-fact-filled Cocktail Land mini-magazine — which you will find in the center of this paper unless someone has already swiped it to map out their pub crawl — flows downtown, uptown, and across the Mesa to Goleta, searching out the fresh, the weird, and the ever-delicious in a frosty, smoked-pistachio-topped glass. “These mini-mags let our team flex their creative muscles beyond the usual weekly newspaper boundaries,” said Matt, who’s organized a half-dozen or so over the past year, from Tech-Topia and the film fest’s Meet the Makers to an upcoming Santa Barbara Gift Guide. “This just might be my favorite one yet.”
