Plan A Visit To Santa Ynez Valley During Craft Beer Month

Craft Beer Month

They say that it “takes a lot of beer to make good wine”. Perhaps this is why craft beer has become so popular in the Santa Ynez Valley in recent years. In fact, the love for craft beer is so strong that there is an entire month dedicated to it! Santa Ynez Valley Craft Beer Month is held during the month of May as an extension of American Craft Beer Week. Craft beer lovers can learn, taste and dine with incredible events throughout the month. There will be special tastings, a beer festival, classes, dinners, demos and more. Residents and visitors alike can also revel in the growth of the craft beer industry throughout any of our wonderful towns.
