IBC History

"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer."

-Abraham Lincoln

Island Blonde

A Kolsch-style ale blending Pils, Wheat, Carafoam, Vienna malts in an addition of Sterling hops. The result is a balance of lingering malt flavors and a subtle hop finish. Light and smooth enough that the first glass invites a second. One of our most popular beers in this two stop-light
beach town.

Avocado Honey Ale

No Avocados were harmed in the brewing of this beer. Instead, we add Avocado Honey: the bees go out into the Avocado orchards and return with a gourmet, amber color honey. We add this to the boil while brewing resulting in an ale that quite literally has the taste of sunlight in every sip. Honey malt and Sterling Hops combine for a uniquely smooth and a slightly sweet finish.

Brewed to coincide with Carpinteria's annual Avocado Festival, the first weekend in October.

Paradise Pale Ale

An American Style Pale Ale. We like to think that if there was a way to put the taste of paradise in a bottle, this would be it. This crisp and even tasting beer is brewed from some of the finest American and English malts and Amarillo hops available. It's a unique blend infused with hoppy flavors and aromas that is lively and engaging from the first sip. Rye malt is the secret ingredient.

Jubilee Ale

This beer falls into the Old Ale class of beers, a tradition of beers and brewing style emphasizing rich malt flavors, caramel sweetness, and a balanced finish. On the rare occasions we run out of this one at the tasting room, the locals give us an ear full. We can't blame them.

Starry Night Stout

One of our most decorated beers to date. The Starry Night Stout is an intensely rich and robust foreign-style stout balancing intense malt character and hoppy bitterness: Dark, roasted specialty malts meet Magnum hops, with flaked barley added for the creamy head this style is known for.
