INSTITUTION ALE TO OPEN DOWNTOWN

Reader Primetime says that another vacant downtown Santa Barbara site is leased. I’m told that the Institution Ale Company at 3841 Mission Oaks Boulevard in Camarillo will move into 516 State Street, the former home of Caffe Primo and Pierre Lafond Wine Bistro. Move in date is scheduled for fall 2018.

    Must have deep pockets to afford that rent!

    They seem to be a decent brewery/taproom – will check it out for sure.

    Interesting location choice. Done right that could be a great space for a taproom. They’ll need to work on the beer quality if they want anyone but tourists to frequent the spot. Of course, Santa Barbara Brewing Co. has survived on tourists forever.

    Awesome! Was down in their Camarillo location for the first time a couple of months ago. We’re regulars at Paxti’s, where the pizza offerings are tired and the beer taps need cleaning. Noticed some guys inside the Pierre Lafond space last Friday. Will gladly move across the street for better food and beer!
