Besides having their own microbrews, they have other ones on tap, including Bitburger.
We have always liked the food and most of it is reasonably priced. The noise level can get excessive at times.

Got a salad here that was drenched with vinaigrette dressing. Depending on the crowd, this place can be quite noisy.

Very much like the brewhauses in Germany. The food is hearty and tasty with a wide variety to choose from. I always bring my guy friends here for the wide selection of beers and filling, tasty food. A must during Octoberfest season or anytime you are craving home cooked style food.

I can't believe this place hasn't been reviewed yet! This is the place to go if you are looking for a good microbrew. They brew their own beer on the premises and have a huge selection. The beer is great! They also have a big menu selection and everything that I have eaten there has been delicious. The service is always great! This is my favorite brewhouse in Santa Barbara.

Went here while on vacation, and my husband and I loved it! The beer was very good, and not too expensive and the food was great too. Our server was very nice and she was attentive. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone in Santa Barbara.

I live in Seattle and wish there were breezy bars with such good food in my rain-soaked city. The Brewhouse has a genuinely unpretentious vibe with excellent, simple dishes. It?s like somebody in the kitchen said, ?Hey, cheese is good. We should use that.? And another guy said, ?Ya know what else is good? Meat.? And then his buddy goes, ?Yeah, I like meat and cheese. That?s really smart. Let?s also make our food good because people like that.? And then the first guy goes, ?Ok, deal, but I don?t want it to be snooty because I like it when people wear flip flops. It really puts me at ease.? And the third guy comes back with, ?Yeah. Flip Flops. I?m hearing you. They remind me that there?s more to life than a job at a desk, and office air conditioning and tope colored cubical walls.? And guy number two chimes in with, ?Flip Flops and those sweatshirts with the hoods on them when it?s cold.? So yeah, the Brewhouse is great!

Pros: Great Food and Beer

Cons: One of the wiaters had a cast on his arm. I don't like the handicapped

You hear a lot of complaints about the Brewhouse: slow, bad service especially. And you know what, yeah it's true. If your a snobby tourist looking to get treated special, don't bother. The Brewhouse is a true locals hangout (thankfully there still are a few.) It's a place where you go for the evening, hang out, have some great beer while waiting (yeah, sometimes a while) for your food. The beers (which you don't have to wait long for) are awesome! The people watching and socializing is awesome, and when the food does arrive, it's delicious. It's a place to hang out for awhile. Go check it out, hang out for awhile, and leave the attitude in LA.

Pros: santa barbara locals at its best, casual, flip flops

Cons: food takes a while when its busy, but its good!

The Brewhouse is my favorite neighborhood pub. It's usually bustling there, noisy and interesting. If you are in a hurry, it's better to go somewhere else. Unless you make a reservation, you usually have to wait a few minutes for a table, but you can get a drink at the bar and watch people while you're waiting. The food is exceptional, Mostly American/Mediterranean. They have great steaks, lamb, salads with shepards mix, great garlic mashed potatoes, fine wines, and several exceptional homebrewed beers made right there in the tavern section. They also have salads and sandwiches for $8-10, but the full dinners are about $20. They have both indoor and outdoor tables, a bar area, and tavern section in the adjacent room. The atmosphere is not fancy but it's great food and drink!. They regularly have live bands on the weekends starting about 10pm. Definitely a unique and satisfying experience!

Pros: hidden jewel, exceptional food, live music

Cons: busy, noisy

Possibly the rudest, most disrespectful waitresses that did their very best to make me never want to eat there again. The service is terrible and you'll be lucky to get what you ordered in a timely manner. Save yourself the trouble and eat somewhere else.

Regional artwork adorns the walls of The Brewhouse, a popular gathering place for dyed-in-the-wool locals. It's a lively hub of Santa Barbara energy, where families, oftentimes three generations at a table, mix with beer-swilling fishermen…
