About The Team

Stumbling upon Armada Wine & Beer Merchant is like discovering a secret Old World tavern. Tucked into a back corner of San Marcos Courtyard, it’s a reliable escape from the bustle of State Street or the hustle of your downtown office, yet steadily buzzing inside with friends who work and live in the neighborhood.

There’s plenty of Central Coast wine and beer to be had, but it’s also an ideal place to educate your palate by trying a new wine from regions throughout the world!

Who we are supporting 

We are raising money to support the servers and bartenders who have been impacted by Covid-19. We all have our favorite watering hole & our favorite servers. They are there for us in the good times and the bad. Now it is our turn to be there for them! 

When the doors closed to our favorite wineries and breweries, the servers & bartenders - who normally put a smile on our face - were no longer able to earn wages and take home tips. Members of the community and organizations have come together to support the businesses and businesses owners, however, we want to put the focus on the individuals that make these venues so great! These individuals need your support. They have shared in your stories and celebrations for years. Now it is your turn to support them. 

Two ways you can help: 

1. Donate: $10, $20, $50, $100, $2,359 - anything helps!

2. Purchase a custom designed Support Local T-shirt: 100% of the profits go to the servers & bartenders 

T-shirts details :

  • Locally sourced and printed in Santa Barbara, CA
  • 100% premium cotton 
  • Standard unisex cut, size Small - XXL
  • Shipped May 31. 

How the funds will be distributed? 

All funds will be distributed between the various participating venue's by means of gift cards that can be used at local grocery stores, eateries, and other essential businesses. This is to ensure the money will go to the employees and stays within the local community.

5% of the funds raised will be donated to the US Bartenders Guild Foundation, which has raised over $6 million dollars to help bartenders, bar backs, and servers who are in need of financial assistance as a result of the COVID-19. 

This fundraiser has been organized by GYDO | Get Your Drink On.  This is our contribution to the community we are so heavily involved with. Our goal is to raise sufficient funds to support the staff at all participating venue's.
