When you're heading north from Santa Barbara stop off in Buellton at the Firestone taproom (not the Paso brewery although that's good as well) a few months ago they opened their BarrelWorks Tap Room.
They store all their barrel project beers for the Anniversary ales and special releases. Plus all the crazy experiment stuff and wild ales. On a recent visit they had Ruffus, Ruffus w/ Bret, Lil Opal, Sticky Monkey(15.2 Barleywine used in the Anniv blends), their SloAmbic, and Parabola 12&13 to name a few.
This weekend they are offering 11 through 16 Anniversary incredible. As an added geek out there are QR Codes on all the barrels that tell you dates, what's in the barrel, and what it was inoculated with. Last time I came across a barrel they brewed with Mikkeller around last years beerfest. You walk in through the Barrel Room. A truly great experience.
