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!

Sometimes you look for that chocolate edge that is over the edge. Pairing Surf Brewery's Porter or Dark Ale with a Chocolate Tamale from the Escabeche food truck outside can be sway the most jaded chocoholic this Valentine's Day.

I really enjoyed learning more about the different beers that are out there and had some great beers to drink at this place. Local people we met at the bar were pleasant and informed us of good local places to check out. I look forward to returning to this place.
