Great Beer and a Good Time for all

This is a great place to gather with friends or family. The food is pretty good, but the beer is even better. They offer a large selection and have a variety of 'flights' to try. One of the first restaurants around to capitalize on the craft beer craze. A lively, friendly place with an out door... read more

First, I should tell you we picked this place because it was listed as Dog Friendly, and we had our rottie with us. They have a small but perfect outdoor seating area, protected from the wind and cold, that was very inviting. The food was outstanding. I had a fabulous burger and my husband had the fish and chips -... More

Sampled many beers here and my absolute favorite was the monkeyfist IPA. If you love a strong, bitter beer, this beer is for you! Also, dont follow the ibu on beers, i personally think it is an inaccurate scale, try it for yourself!

The pizza is really good. They have great brewed beer. They have several kinds available each week based on what is ready. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere was nice.

Stopped at Anacapa Brewing while wondering around downtown Ventura. Well worth the stop. Friendly staff. Great burgers and Mac n cheese. And don't let the strange sounding Szechwan Vinaigrette put you off. I wanted to try it but my wife was apprehensive so the waitress brought us some on the side and I had to fight my wife for it....

Started out the day in Camarillo, made it out to Ventura. Perfect beach weather so we stopped into Anacapa Brewing for some lunch and some suds. The house brews were all excellent and I had a pesto chicken sandwich which was awesome! Everyone else in my group had excellent food!

Went here for a late lunch with two friends. The waitress was at our table within two minutes. I requested a taste of two brews - no problem. Chose one of the IPA's - the red was a bit heavy for me - for lunch anyway. Between the three of us, we ordered a vegie sandwich, BLT and ahi flautas.... More
