Only four years ago Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company opened up their brewery and first taproom in Buellton, California.  Since then, the company has experienced fast growth with two more taprooms opening in Santa Barbara and Los Olivos.  Adding to the roster is a fourth taproom now open in Santa Maria, California.  The Grand Opening was held on Saturday, November 22, 2014 following a ribbon cutting held three days prior.  Located in College Square at 560-B Betteravia next to Me-n-Ed’s Pizza, the new taproom is open Monday-Wednesday from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM, Thursday through Saturday from 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM and 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM on Sundays during NFL Football Season.

“We are excited to open a taproom in an area so rich in history and tradition,” says President Jaime Dietenhofer about expanding into Santa Maria.  “Every year we attend the Santa Maria rodeo and we’re big fans of Santa Maria BBQ.  Craft beer is the perfect pairing with Tri-Tip and we will even be marinating Tri-Tip in Davy Brown Ale for sandwiches on our ‘Bar Bites’ menu.”

The taproom menu that Dietenhofer is referring to offers dishes such as a burger, Tri-Tip sandwich, pizza, Caesar salad, spicy chicken lettuce wrap and more.  On Sundays the taproom will be open early for “Beerunch” starting at 10:00 AM with breakfast burritos along with FigMtnBrew’s beer cocktail list featuring standards like their “Beer Mary” (a Bloody Mary made with beer) and “Hopped-Mosa” (Mimosa made with beer).  For a sweet finish to your meal, Beer Floats are also on the menu as well as Root Beer floats for those who prefer a more traditional combination.

Santa Marians will now have more nightlife options with Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company’s daily entertainment such as live music every Friday and Saturday nights and Wednesday Game Night with a variety of board games to play with friends.  Additional promotions include Benefit Taphandle Night also on Wednesdays where proceeds from a designated beer will benefit a local nonprofit/charity and Industry Night on Tuesdays for staff working in the hospitality industry.  Every Tuesday is “Taco Tuesday” with $2.00 off the Tri-Tip Tacos.  Thursday night is College Night for local students, 21 years and older, who can purchase $4 pints with a valid student id.
Military servicemen and women can show their military ID any day for 10% off their order including beer and merchandise to-go.  On Mondays they can order beer all day for only $4.00 per pint.

Local fans of Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company can now sign up for the Davy Brown Mug Club for the Santa Maria taproom.  Membership costs $150.00 per year and includes a dedicated mug for the same price as a pint—that’s 9 ounces of free beer with every beer.  Other benefits include quarterly appreciation parties and field trips, monthly excursion opportunities, first offering for tickets, new releases and more.  A full list of benefits can be found on www.FigMtnBrew.com/MugClub.  To join the Mug Club, stop by the taproom to purchase your membership.  Hurry!  Memberships are almost sold out for the Santa Maria taproom.
