Located in the Funk Zone of Santa Barbara, Brass Bear Brewing is a husband and wife team who started brewing in 2009.
LOCALLY SOURCED × CRAFTED WITH LOVE
Brass Bear Brewing opened in Feb 2016 and is located one block from the beach inside the Funk Zone of Santa Barbara, CA. We serve our high quality craft beer and rotating guest taps, wine, sparkling and cider. Our food consists of charcuterie boards, skewers of tritip, chicken, shrimp, occasionally shark, burgers and hot toasted sandwiches sourced from Santa Barbara and surrounding counties.
The Brass Bear name came to be during a National Parks cross-country road trip from New York to California. At our favorite park, Glacier, we did backcountry camping (the kind where you sign your life away at The Ranger Station and all they do is arm you with a safety video and bear spray for protection). As ‘luck’ would have it, after 6 hours of hiking and seeing no one, we came face to face with a family of three Black Bears.
The late afternoon sun hit the bears just perfectly and turned them to a beautiful brass color. They glanced our way and with a decisive grunt carried on. We agreed over dinner that night that this would be the perfect name for our own business one day, to remind us to face our fears and keep on trekking!

Brass Bear has a supervised kid play area with toys and activities to help the parents enjoy a hot meal and a glass of beer or wine. its Simple but fun for all ages.
We have a 3 year old son who we completely stopped taking to restaurants because it was such a challenge. One of us, if not both of us would end up eating cold food or just getting it to go. Sometimes you just need two minutes!!
