Our Story: Three Friends, Faithful to the Craft.

The Santa Barbara Brewing Company (BrewCo) has become a vibrant and valued part of the Santa Barbara community. Our reputation for remarkable beer and savory food has been the foundation for our success. And it all began with the hard work and ambitious dreams of three partners, and a receptive city to appreciate their efforts. Recently, we won a Gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.

The founders shared a simple notion back in 1995 - the desire to build a great place for great beer. Their commitment to remain 'faithful to the craft' helped BrewCo to quickly become a trusted mainstay of the Santa Barbara community. All thanks to one simple truth? we simply serve the freshest, best beer around.

For an absolutely clean, fresh and wholesome beer, it doesn't get any better. And we've worked hard to make the BrewCo environment a great place to enjoy every sip. Friends meet here to share stories and travelers rest their legs to enjoy a cold drink and a warm meal. We have a saying here that sums it all up? that our beers are brewed for locals, to be enjoyed by all.

We are a true reflection of this community - a rich mix of local residents and favorite getaway to travelers the world over. That's why you'll always find something happening here, above and beyond the great beer and great food. We pride ourselves on being a second home for locals, a favorite and familiar haven for return visitors.

So join us in our celebration of some of the finest things in life - fresh beer, great food, and good friends. And come back anytime.


We serve up classic American fare and hometown flavor every day. Each dish is designed to complement our beers perfectly. Add to the mix a rich and comfortable setting, and you've got the essence of the BrewCo restaurant experience.

Amid the vintage Prohibition-Era photographs, and the sparkling steel and copper tanks, friends the world over enjoy our savory food (with a pint or two, of course). Set in an historic brick building in central Old Town Santa Barbara - our restaurant is the heart of our microbrewery.

Take a look at our lunch and dinner menus, and you'll see what we mean. You'll know exactly what to order the next time you're in Santa Barbara. Heck, you may even want to make a special trip. Either way, we'll do our best to make you feel at home.
