The Best Breweries and Craft Beer in Santa Ynez Valley

Santa Ynez Valley: More Than Just Wine

Santa Ynez Valley is well-known for its amazing wine. However, the craft beer scene in SYV is growing rapidly too. Three major players in California craft beer make their brews in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. In addition to outstanding breweries, a host of specialty tasting rooms, bars and restaurants offer international beer tastings. There is even a specialty brew shop in Solvang, which offers supplies and classes to burgeoning home brewers. The valley celebrates all things beer with SYV Craft Beer Month, a month-long celebration with special offerings and events throughout the area.
