Stop One: Solvang Brewing Company
First time on camera. The locale and cheese are a perfect compliment to my giggles and beer. Cheers!
Fig Mountain, as the locals call it, was our favorite of the trip. Great beers and a social place to hang out. They have a large outdoor space with picnic tables, fire pits, horseshoes, and live music on the weekends. We really enjoyed spending time chatting with a local, Hank, and Tom and Bernadette en route to Monterey. Hank pointed us to a local boutique butcher and Bernie pitched a note-worthy bakery so we added both to the schedule.
Stew made friends too. How do we know? He wandered happily around this dog-friendly brewery, making puppy eyes, and returned to us with a full belly and some serious gas.
Stop 3: Ascendant Spirits Distillery & Tasting Room
Ok. So it's not a brewery but it's right next to Fig Mountain, so it's worth a stop. In this video, Chris tastes the flavored vodka's; Strawberry, Cavier Lime, and Ghost Chili. Visit their website to find a distributor near you.
Mmmm, and all natural, non-GMO buzz with the sweet undertones of fruits and berries. Make sure you take a sip of Chris's recommendation, Ghost Chili vodka. Smoky and delicious!

Meet an Airbnb Host with Unique Accommodations (Santa Barbara's Wine Country)
Meet Tamera who hosts a cozy fifth wheel trailer in Santa Barbara's wine country. We had the honor of staying here while exploring the Santa Ynez Valley. Tamera and her husband, Shawn, make you feel right at home. Guests are treated to a bottle of wine, home baked bread, brownies and fresh eggs from the on-property chickens. Even their pool is available for guest use. It's a beautiful space , but it's the hospitality that makes it memorable. With places like this, I don't know why you'd ever stay in a hotel. This spot is in close proximity to sites in Santa Ynez, Solvang and Buellton.
