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.

Went here after Surf Brew. This was not as good as Surf Brew. Beer watery.

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.

One of my favorite places to eat in Ventura. On the menu I would recommend the pulled pork sandwich with a side of the sweet potato fries. I enjoy the house beers especially because one is named after the neighborhood I live in. The beers are, like I said, Decent, however; I would enjoy the occasional higher gravity brew or a more creative approach to one. I frequently go here just for the food, and also enjoy the hole in the wall atmosphere with the seating arrangement being my only other gripe.(it is slightly cramped)

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.

If youíre in Ventura, this is your best bet for brew. Not a big brewpub, only has 5 taps for their beers, but every one was pretty solid. Food was good and staff was friendly. Pretty small seating area, but I didnít have trouble getting a seat at the bar. Not mind-blowing, but worth visiting.

SamGamgee  (182) down the whirlpool, California | October 18, 2008
Brick wall and old brewery tank decor a slightly cave-like feel due to dark lighting and lots of light coming from the distant all-glass street-front. Good, friendly service. Decent but typical food the sweet potato fries were nice. Only four house beers. They were all decent, but nothing really stood out. I would come back to see what other beers they have in the future, but a brewpub with only four beers needs to get there act together if they want to attract more beer enthusiasts.

A cool little hole in the wall in downtown Ventura near the Mission. Above average beer and great friendly service. Only about 5 beers from them available at any time, but worth a stop. I didnít try the food.

Casual set up, long bar separates tanks from 2 rows of tables. Nice little patio. Bar service was very friendly, beers were good overall (only 4 the 5th was in transition). Did not eat but regular brewpub menu.

Went in March 2002 prior to my Ratebeerian days. Wasnít impressed. Standard/average restaurant that wants to be a brewpub.
