Breweries & Tap Rooms

An emergence of high quality breweries, alehouses, gastropubs, and tasting rooms have quickly made Santa Cruz a premier destination for beer lovers from all over the world. Taking inspiration from the diverse culture that thrives here, you can visit breweries specializing in anything from European-inspired lagers, barrel-aged sours, West Coast IPA's, and everything in between. Many of our local breweries and brew pubs also offer locally sourced, farm-to-table cuisine that will go perfect with your beer of choice.
