Most people come to the Funk Zone to white wine raft their way through the tasting rooms. But over at The Nook/Lama Dog Tap Room on Santa Barbara St., things take a hoppier turn. This take-out food window/beer hall is the best place to drink craft beer in Santa Barbara, with some pretty strong bar food as well. You order your food at Nook (get the short rib burger and lobster mac and cheese), then stroll over to the long communal tables at Lama Dog and proceed to drink your afternoon away with their 19 taps and over 300 different varieties of cans and bottles.
