My husband and I came in for dinner last Saturday night. Main Street was less crowded than we'd expected for a Saturday night in July but the place we wanted had a huge wait, so we ended up here. Great find! My husband loved the beer selection, and we both really enjoyed our dinner (I had pulled pork, which was... More

My family had an early dinner here last weekend. We tried the beer flights and enjoyed tasting several of the house brewed beers. (Did not care for the sour beer!) Our table had three burgers and one salad. All of the food was very good, just fairly predictable. My salad was called a Louisiana Chicken Salad. I enjoyed it very... More

A local cop recommended this place. It's a small brewery and cafe. The beer was excellent. They'll describe all the selections in detail for you. The food was also great and the prices were really good. Very friendly atmosphere.

We stopped by for lunch knowing that our husbands would love the beer (and they did)! My sister and I both had the salmon teriyaki salad and our husbands had the pulled pork. Both were very good, but the salad was a bit salty. The portion of salmon was really large and cooked perfectly. The pulled pork was good, especially... More

12 people, Friday night, no reservation and within minutes, we were all seated and served. The Staff was on top of it. Very courteous girls working the hostess desk and our group. Apps and brews were top notch. I recommend the sampler flight of brews. Great job A.B.C.!!

This is your typical brewery with the typical menu. Only reason why I didn't review it higher. It was definitely a good meal but just wasn't anything out of this world. Good beer however so really no complaints. Would definitely go back there!

Fish tacos were amAzing, and customizable. Service was excellent and dog-friendly. Great beer even though I discovered an allergy to the rye pale ale.

This place is a good place for a burger and a beer. I love their porter, the wait staff is always nice. There is along bar you can sit at with a view of their brewing equipment which is cool to look at. The outside seating area is nice, especially if you like the main st. view.

We drove up to spend the weekend in Ventura only to find no rooms available. We stopped at Anacapa Brewing Company for a drink and some appetizers while we searched for a hotel room. The appetizers were fabulous and my husband enjoyed the beer. The staff were very friendly and helpful in finding us a local hotel. We loved it... More

Just a good spot to go to have some good beer and good food. Atmosphere is nice and the location in downtown is good if you like to go somewhere else after.
