You should try beers from the baja mexican microbrewery Cucapa, they make that chupacabras beer and a few others. Really good stuff!

Had some really good beer at the Telegraph Brewing Company in Santa Barbara.
I had the California Ale, Stock Porter, and the White Ale.
Check it out.
I have seen it sold at Whole Foods if you want to give it a go.

Oh man. Someone pinch me. A recently opened high end beer/wine shop in Downtown by the Arts District. Went by it a couple nights ago with moderate expectations. Found some beers I haven't been able to find almost anywhere. Fer godssakes look at their beer list
Buzz wine beer store2
A large wine selection. Picked up a 2008 AU Hales fruit bomb at first.
People dressed in odd gray jumpsuits with BUZZ badges on them offering customers help.
The kicker? THEY DELIVER!! $2.95 to anywhere in Downtown- Go crazy Downtowners! I just ordered the following today--
2 bottles of Hales, AU
2 bottles Man O' War Waiheke Island Sauv Blanc
2 bottles of Duchesse De Bourgogne (sour beer)
6 pack of Maui Big Swell IPA
Not all beer I know but had to put this somewhere. $2.95 fee +tip right to my door. Yay Downtown!!

Bruery Rugbrod. I think this may be my first rye ale. I wasn't sure I would like it but I've been pretty impressed by it. Dark and fairly malty (honestly by aroma alone I would have pegged this as a stout, perhaps even Alagash Black) with a mild/medium spiciness. Actually, I'm quaffing this down.
