It's been a fun and frivolity filled summer so we'd like to thank you for doing your part in bringing your vibrancy to our brewery. Just in time for the impending beer drinking that marks Oktoberfest, we are excited to announce our next beer release, the Islanderfest Marzen. This elegant and malty German amber lager brings toasty bready wonder with a restrained bitterness 5.4 % ABV, 20 IBU and all you. Last time we brewed this was about August 2016! There will be much rejoicing.


When will we release this liquid wonder? Seems like it would fit well with the Dog Park fundraiser that we're hosting this Friday, Swept 13, 4-8 pm! C-Dog has been working with the City of Carpinteria to establish a dog park. So come hoist a pint and bid on some silent auction items. Your favorite canine thanks you in advance.


We'd also be remiss not to mention the Carpinteria Chamber of Commerce's annual Culinary Crawl, Saturday from 4-6. We join forces with 16 local restaurants and traipse from brewery to restaurants. Full details here:


All that traipsing will likely leave you longing for a few quality tunes, and Spoonful will be on deck Saturday with their blend of sonic magic, 6-9. Dudes are legit, and we're stoked to have them back. Speaking of Stoked...


The Avocado Festival approaches, Oct 4-6, and we have prepared accordingly wtih a trifecta of goodness. First, the Avocado Honey Ale (no avocados were harmed brewing this beer), then the Avocado Honey IPA ( an IPA brewed with Avocado Honey), and finally, STOAKED, our Avocado Honey Ale aged in American Oak. Look for release dates soon!


That's all for now, we'd love to hear from you!
