Great assortment

A mixed bag, well established brewery on the craft scene, this place makes some very fine beers indeed, most especially the strawberry wheat, a lovely balanced bock and a clever assortment of IPAs, including an imperial IPA that should probably be illegal at 106 IBUs! Place is way too loud to... read more

Surf Brewery is a tasting room and home brew supply store in one. Several tables and a bar to serve you some great microbrews. We tried a sampler. $2 for a 5 ounce pour. We tried the Mondo's Blonde Ale (Awesome), the Country Line Rye Pale Ale (also good, but Mondo's was better), Oil Piers Porter (soooo goood) and the... More

Craft beer tasting is one of my hobbies and I was not disappointed! In addition to the beer there was also a food truck on the premises that was serving Mexican food that was yummy as well.

I live this place so much. Tried their "short board" that included 4 samplers of your own choice. I liked the lemon wheat ale the most but all other beers were very good. Very relaxing and causal environment. They did not serve any foods here but they welcomed outside foods. It's is recommended you bought your foods from nearby restaurants... More

This is one of Ventura's first breweries. They have an awesome selection of beers from darks to IPA's. This has definitely become of the locals favorite after work spots. You also can't miss out on the delicious Mexican Food Truck that parks in front of the brewery nearly every night of the week. Made from scratch Mexican fare is a... More

Decided to make a top at Surf Brewery on our way from Oceanside to the Santa Barbara area. The brewery was close to the freeway and easy to get to. The brewery was much larger than I expected and they have a mini home brew supply shop inside it as well. The decor was cool, the surf theme was well... More

This is the best microbrewery I have found in Ventura. They have a nice selection of craft beer for your enjoyment. Not sure what you're thirsty for? No problem. Take a sample and then enjoy a pint of life. Friendly staff, wish the food truck would rotate. Five Stars for sure!
