Selection of beers and bar food

Great for local and other brews. Has a small outside patio where you can people watch the characters on the street and near the flophouse across the street . Food is OK-- typical bar and grill fare. Nice stop for recuperating sfter shopping on Main and side streets.

Plenty of parking downtown with easy access to a number of places. Lots of local options on the brewlist with good options from around the area. The filet slices were good, as was the fish n chips. The service was fantastic.

I wasn't expecting much from a brewery as I'm not much of a beer drinker and am also a vegetarian, but my boyfriend had been in the mood for a burger and beer so we chose Anacapa. Our server was fantastic. She was very nice, very professional, and when I ordered the Cobb salad sans bacon and turkey, she immediately... More

The atmosphere is great and the food is delicious but the Beer is outstanding. We go on bike runs and always stop by to relax and enjoy the a cold beer. If you have never been to Anacapa Brewing Company, you need to, its worth it

I wouldn't go to Anacapa for the food alone, while good it definitely doesn't inspire one to keep coming back. Now the beer becomes the highlight. Across the board they didn't have much for the fan of high IBUs, but if you like a less bitter beer the menu here is very accommodating.

Hard to believe, this was our first visit to a brewery. We are typically wine drinkers, but we're on vacation. Try something new, right? Very happy we ventured in. The bartender set us up with a few tasters and we found a couple of beers we very much enjoyed. My favorite was Farmer Flannel Maple Brown. My husband enjoyed Adobe... More

Went here for a quick beer and decided on a couple of apps to tide us over before dinner. The beer was good, not great or complex. The apps were typical bar stuff and OK at the happy hour prices. Nice little neighborhood hang out and I would go back for beers and apps. What really makes it worth the... More

you do not have to slurp , or sip, or gulp. You do HAVE TO try the wonderfully tasty microbrews made right in house. Ambience, wait staff, and crowd are all great too. No problems there. But try the tasty microbrew suds made right in house for a bit of Ventura that will leave you smiling.
