Craft Beer

The saying that “it takes a lot of beer to make great wine” is true around these parts. 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, while a specialty brew shop in Solvang offers supplies and classes to burgeoning home brewers. The valley celebrates all things craft beer with SYV Craft Beer Month, a month-long celebration with special offerings and events throughout the area.

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.
