Craft beer makers and surfboard shapers will be side by side in Carpinteria this Saturday for the DEEP magazine Surf 'n Suds beer festival by the beach.

It's the first year for the event on Linden Avenue in the grass field at Carpinteria State Beach.

40 breweries and 12 surfboard shapers will be represented.

There will also be a special tent showing eight short surf movies.

Island Brewing Company owner, Paul Wright has been part of the planning team and will be in the VIP area to answer questions from beer lovers about the rapidly growing industry.  Island Brewing is one of the many award winning breweries that will be serving samples.

The special VIP zone will also offer limited edition and one of a kind beers.

There will be food trucks on hand for those who are hungry including the Burger Bus, and Tiki Taco.

These events are "a learning process," said Wright.  "They may like one type of beer but by the end of the day they will learn about others and come away with an education, and many tastings. If you normally like the lighter beers then this is the time to try stouts, porters and  IPA's."

The event is expected to bring over 1000 people to Carpinteria for the festival and to see the city.  "It's a great community, there's a lot of great restaurants for an 'after festival'," said Wright.

He also said traveling by train from Santa Barbara is only $6.00.

For a complete list of participants contact DEEP magazine Surf 'n' Suds Beer Festival at :

There will be five non profits that will benefit from the proceeds including California Avocado Festival Scholarship fund, Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, Project Save our Surf, Santa Barbara Surfrider, Carpinteria Valley Arts Council, and Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition.

The event runs from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.     The special VIP ticket offers an earlier admission and one on one meetings with beer makers.

There will also be a designated driver program with a reduced admission that includes a food coupon.  Non-alcoholic beers will also be served.

    Orcutt Family Starts Petition to Change County Ordinance

    An Orcutt family is fighting to keep their dogs from being euthanized, and is now trying to change a county ordinance on aggressive dogs. The family has an online petition spreading their message on the internet in an effort to get the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's attention.

    Peggy Henning remembers the day her family welcomed Daisy and Duke into their family like it was yesterday.

    "They immediately just became part of the family," said Henning. "They were very friendly with all the guests we had coming over."

    But things changed when Daisy and Duke got loose. They liked chasing cats.

    "Dogs are pack animals and that is their default instinct," said Henning. "If they are bonded or litter mates, it intensifies that. They would get out of the confines of our house or yard and this instinct would come to the surface."
