Welcome to M. Special Brewing Company
M. Special is a collective of friends and family from across the world of beer, food, and entertainment. Each member contributes something unique to help create a unique, fun experience, and of course some great beer.
We have a bunch of Miller and Malloys involved in M.Special so we started there. Miller was obviously taken and Malloy Brewing Co was actually being used by a guy who was brewing out of his garage so we let that go as well and settled on M followed by Special with that being the name of our Grandpa Emmett’s race cars from the 1950’s. There were many versions ranging from Friday Night Special stock cars to even a Malloy Special that raced in the Indy 500 in 1955. Now anyone with an M in their name gets naming credit, like our Brewers Max and Michael or our Manager Megan or even the local Mailman who stops by everyday.
The portfolio of beers are diverse, ranging from our flagship M. Special American Lager, some amazing IPA's such as the Greatland IPA and Lazy Eye DIPA, to a rich and flavorful Dozer Brown Ale, and much more. You can find these beers at most local markets between Ventura and SLO, or you can visit us at our taproom in Goleta where you'll find a welcoming space with lot's of good times to be had seven days a week.
