Great downtown location, very clean. The brewery equipment is literally right behind the bar, which is cool. The service was excellent. We talked about the beers. The bartender could tells us information about each beer and had tried them. She also gave us advice about other places in town to each, visit, and hit happy hour. They didnít slack on the pour, each glass was topped off. They do the best they can on selection. I donít think they can brew fast enough for demand, so they bring in other micros to compensate. Would stop in again if in town.

Nice brewpub in Old Downtown Ventura with their own decent beers on draft as well as other local guest brews from Surf Brewery Food was excellent; my ahi sandwich was great! Service was excellent.

Great beer. Selection is slim, but they have all the classics and usually have a guest tap. This is an intimate place, not designed to handle masses of swillers.

A little pricey but a fun place for a pint in Ventura. Great food and although the selection was a little small, the beers were decent. Itís been a while since I visited but my memories are good.

Nice little brewpub in downtown Ventura, just down the street from City Hall. Small patio, somewhat narrow, but long, inside with a very large bar area. The woman who served me at the bar was very friendly and helpful. The house beers were quite decent, and some local guest taps (Surf and Figueroa Mountain) were on as well. Decent prices. Didnít eat.

Pretty chill place. Elevator pop music playing, which cost them a point for ambiance. A few flat panel TVs. Beer is ok, nice that they also have guest taps (does that mean they know their beer is not awesome?). Happy hour 3-6 weekdays, $1 off house beers. I love seeing all the brewing equipment behind the bar. Worth a stop. Need to do food next time.

Very nice place in the old part of town. The food was great. We had a sandwich which we recreated when we got back home. The beers were good and solid for a small place. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. There was a good crowd for a Thursday evening. Stop in when in town.

Kind of a hole in the wall. It is very a unassuming place. Lots of wood and stainless, yet not in an aggressive way. I was here at 5 PM on a Wednesday and it was nearly empty. They only had a couple of their own beers on tap, and 4 guest taps. The beer was decent, the food was excellent. I can recommend the Salmon Club Sandwich. I like the place. I would stop by often if I were a local. There seems to be plenty of street parking available.

Went here after a trip to Santa Cruz Island- had two beers, the IPA and Porter, both were pretty solid, especially the Porter. We only had the Thai Pizza to eat, it was quite good. Would come here again if in the area.

I stopped here on a rainy Friday evening on my way to SF beer week a couple years ago. The building was clean and nice, quiet, and the brewing equipment is behind the bar. I sat at the bar and ordered a set of samples, which was 5 house beers. I tried the:

C Street Wheat Ale (3.3)
Mirage Rye Pale Ale (3.6)
Mission Nut Brown Ale (3.2)
Santa Rosa Red (3.75)
Two Trees Double IPA (3.6)

The food however was quite good. I ordered The Scorcher burger with chipotle mayo, pepper jack cheese, and fried/breaded jalapenos on top of a 1/2 lb(ish) patty. The mayo was so good I asked for a little on the side to dip my fries into. The bill came to about $15 after tax.

The service was very nice but despite the ratio of customers to servers I still ended up flagging the girl down a couple times. I think if I stop in again it would be for the food although it sounds like (according to their website) they have a lot of rotating beers but they only have 5 on at a time.
