Craft Beer Month

Craft Beer MonthThe saying goes that it “takes a lot of beer to make good wine.” Perhaps that is why craft beer has become so popular in the Santa Ynez Valley wine country located in Santa Barbara County. Residents and visitors revel in the growth of the craft beer industry throughout the towns of Buellton, Ballard, Los Alamos, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez and Solvang. Santa Ynez Valley Craft Beer Month will be held during the entire month of May 2014 as an extension of American Craft Beer Week. Craft Beer lovers can learn, taste and dine with a truly incredible offering of events such as special tastings, a beer festival, classes, dinners, demos and more.

Visitors can plan their own Craft Beer trip throughout the Santa Ynez Valley anytime with the newly updated SYV Craft Beer Trail Map. Grab a printed version at any valley brew stop or find a printable map here.
