Anacapa Brewing Company Restaurant Review: A dozen stainless steel tanks line the long, narrow dining room in this 115-year-old building with brick walls and high ceilings. The brewpub is energetic and loud, while the patio fronting Main Street is always popular. Food ranges from Japanese-style rolls to brick-oven pizzas. There are sandwiches and salads as well as full meals such as a grilled flat-iron steak and Southern fried chicken and waffles. Favorites include the Oaxaca tri tip, and the black and blue chicken sandwich. Anacapa Brewing Company’s brews are quite good, including the Santa Rosa Red Ale, which isn't too bitter, and the Pierpont IPA, loaded with hoppy flavor. For something lighter, try the C-Street Wheat Ale, or go all out with the espresso stout. Beers from other microbreweries are also available, along with a small wine list. The dessert to try is the homemade fudge brownie cake, glazed with ganache and topped with whipped cream.
