The newest tasting room in Santa Barbara's eclectic Funk Zone neighborhood - an area populated by local wineries - is serving something refreshingly sudsy . . . and frothy . . . and foamy! That's right: Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. has brought fresh, locally brewed beers to Anacapa Street.

Already a popular destination for wine tasting, fine dining and gallery hopping, the Funk Zone now boasts a large, inviting bar that's open seven days a week from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m.
Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. is a business run by a father and son team with a passion for quality beer. They're known for their award-winning beers. Their Danish Red Lager has won multiple gold medals. But if you prefer something a little hoppier, order a pint of their Hoppy Poppy IPA. It's not just fun to say; it's also fun to drink!
Not sure what you're in the mood for? Order a beer tasting and try several of their offerings before you pick a favorite.
In addition to a bustling bar, there's also a spacious, open-air patio that's pet-friendly. Local bands play here several nights a week.
Figueroa Mountain is within easy walking distance to several local restaurants, including The Lark, a great dinner spot that focuses on seasonal Central Coast ingredients. The beach, the train station and Hotel Indigo are also very close by.
