Got a thirst that water can't satisfy? If you're in downtown Santa Barbara, head to the Third Window Brewing Company for refreshments of the sudsy variety. Located in The Mill, a hip and happening mixed used center, this local brewery makes inventive beers you won't try anywhere else.

You'll find farmhouse ales, seasonal lagers, abbey ales, and more. Third Window has comfortable benches, lots of TVs showing sports, there is an on-site kitchen, and pop-up eats appear more often than not on weekends.

Third Window Brewing Company is housed within a restored barn / feed mill originally built in 1904. Today, the taproom offers a warm welcome to visitors and locals alike, with a consistently fresh offering of locally created beers.

Third Window founder Kristopher Parker is the grandson of television star and Santa Barbara County wine legend Fess Parker. Kris previously worked as COO for Fess Parker Enterprises in Los Olivos before launching Third Window Brewing with partners at The Mill in Santa Barbara.
