Here's good news for lager-loving locavores who prefer beer that hasn't spent days on a truck. Microbreweries are expanding around the country like the head on a well-poured pilsner, and Santa Barbara is no exception, with more than a six-pack of local breweries going strong, from downtown Santa Barbara to the Santa Ynez Valley. Some, such as Hollister Brewing Company, double as restaurants that are just as popular for their beer-friendly gourmet fare as for their handcrafted ales brewed on site. Another standout, Telegraph Brewing Company, serves up lively tastings and supplies its award-winning suds to many local restaurants and bars. All of our microbreweries are helmed by creative brewmasters who approach their craft like talented chefs - even using local ingredients like lemons, oranges and chamomile (who knew!). So whether you crave a crisp ale or a rich, smooth stout, head for one of the area's microbreweries and tap into this tasty trend ... cheers!
