We just landed some really amazing beer from our friends at Smog City – they were kind enough to drive it up to us here in Los Olivos! On tap we have a fresh keg of ‘Wow IPA’ and in bottle we scored some amazing sours. I was first introduced to Smog City while couch surfing in Hermosa Beach and Redondo. It has been awesome following their growth and success through the years, all the while keeping their product legit.
The ‘Wow Pop’ is soooooo refreshing! A golden color that is BURSTING with tropical and citrus aromas. A tidy 6.0% ABV lends to insane drink ability. Oh – so good.
We also brought in ‘Rabbit Ears’ and ‘Quercus Circus’ – two expressive and unique sours. I love the subtle influence of the gin barrel and cranberries in the ‘Rabbit Ears’. The Quercus is a classic barrel aged sour with all of those lovely complex old world notes we love.
We love to be able to bring such great craft beer to the Santa Ynez Valley!
Come grab these fine and limited offerings soon! Oh we have some swag too! Stickers and coasters to take with you!
Every Monday evening at Community Craft, we host a blind tasting of four wines from all around the world. It is a fun, casual wine tasting – you can drop in anytime from 5-7 pm. We make sure to pull out some special wine and keep it changing up week to week. This is a great way to explore some iconic wines from around the world and nearby. We hope to see you tonight!
We love to host special events such as winemaker pop-ups, private dinners, and educational tastings. Sign up today to stay current with these events and of course, be the first to hear about special promotions and sales!
Success! You're on the list.

Admittedly – when heat hits, the majority of my wine consumption is rosé and white wine… but there are so many great options in the world of reds. One in particular was recently brought into the shop by a friend and fantastic winemaker.
Whether you need a break from the high acid whites or just crave new things, I recommend that one indulge a touch of chill for fresh, vibrant, and light bodied reds. This cinsault above from Riding Monkey Wines, now tops that category for me.
Dieter Cronje has been the winemaker at Presqu’ile for many years. He recently began The Riding Monkey label to have some fun working different styles on his own.
We at Community Craft love supporting local, boutique producers – it is the core of our concept. Adding a new label like this to our store gives me such joy. Come by and enjoy with a wine tasting or a glass (or a bottle!).
