Craft brewing is one part art, one part science, one part labor of love, many parts sweat, toil, worry and above all the over reaching belief that focused efforts bring positive results. We started brewing on the stove, did some dreaming, took the leap, took a few more leaps, and 15 years later have a thriving brewery in an amazing part of the world serving amazing people. It's been a collective effort, a crazy ride, and we're glad you're on board.To find out how to plan a trip to Carpinteria, use our trip itinerary maker.

Island Brewing Company reviews
Fantastic local brewery! Delicious and unusual beers, super nice owner (Paul) and bar tender (Mark). We recommend the Avocado Amber Honey Ale, Island IPA and Kolsch!

Great experience. Staff very friendly. Take out only at the present time but it’s easy to walk in and well stocked with many varieties of ale to go.

Had the Island IPA, which is a great beer. Also some specials, like an Avocado Honey IPA. Was greeted and served by a very friendly young man. The interior is nice. The location might be a bit hard...

This is such a fun spot! We ordered a flight of five beers. The avocado, island IPA, and tidal haze IPA or amazing. I wouldn't order the starry night stout again. And if you're into fruity you'll want to try the blood orange crimson. Although they don't serve food, there was a food truck parked next to us. There are so many eclectic places to eat outdoors. There are places to eat indoors too and the high ceilings make it airy. But the view outside looking over the train tracks, grass field from the campground, and beach is magnificent. We stayed for 2 hours just enjoying the vibe and our beers. The restrooms are also nice and clean.
Great place, nice atmosphere, friendly staff and patrons. This place has a lot of nice features. Trainspotting! Public park across the tracks, dog friendly, free parking and delicious beer. Nice place to bring friends or just hang out on the patio with a book or some work. Highly recommend ;)
Cool brewery with large garage doors that open up to the outside. Large selection of brew styles.
This place is amazing. Fantastic beer, wide variety, from barrel aged saison and scotch ale out to your double ipas. And you can get 22oz or 16oz, so my wife and I are both happy. Kid friendly, dog friendly, easy. Only recommendation if you've never been, park on Linden close to the train tracks and walk along them to get in.
A must go to in Carpinteria, great lacation great view, great atmosphere, the staff is awesome. A lot of locals and they are very welcoming. Drinks? AMAZING!! My fav Blonde Ale and high tide yum yum
