If you’re 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 didn’t have trouble getting a seat at the bar. Not mind-blowing, but worth visiting.
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 didn’t try the food.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
