An early version of the SBPA was the first beer the Pure Order team brewed together. It remains a cornerstone of our brewery and a shining example of our commitment to ancient traditions, to a quest for fresh new flavors and to our loyalty to the Santa Barbara community. Crafted in the spirit of the India Pale Ale, this brew complements the traditional hop heavy flavor with a uniquely light and bubbly finish. The label depicts a view of the over 140 year old Stearns Wharf from out in the Santa Barbara Channel. Being that our wharf is one of the longest lasting and most recognizable Santa Barbara monuments we thought it the best representation of what we anticipate to be one of our most popular and enduring brews.

Santa Barbara Common Ale
Our common ale was brewed in the tradition of customary ales of the California Gold Rush. This beer is unique in that it is fermented at ale temperatures but uses yeast strains more conducive to lager styles. Being that the Santa Barbara Common Ale is a variation on a very traditional California brew style we thought the label should depict something historically significant to our great city and state. Once that was decided, it was a pretty natural jump to the depiction of the Santa Barbara Mission seen on this label.

Black Gull Porter
This robust porter is a strong, dark and diligently crafted beer. The brew’s chocolaty notes are complemented nicely by a slight coffee flavor making it a perfect beverage for a cold Santa Barbara evening. The Black Gull label was the first to be completed and really set the tone for all of Pure Order’s artwork. The attention to detail evident in this label is representative of the care with which the brew itself is crafted.

Every week we usually have a small batch served up in the tap room.
Could be anywhere from 5 to 30 gallons made.
Come by to see what it is this week.
A classic German Lager (more specifically a Dortmunder Export), should be arriving in our taproom on January 1st.
The name comes from the German phrase “der innerer Schweinhund” (English : “the inner PigDog”) which is a little voice in your head that says it’s OK to indulge a little bit. Go ahead and have another beer, your inner PigDog says it’s ok.
