Having spent the last 4 days on Santa Cruz Island, my fiance and I opt to stick around Ventura to hang out, unwind, and let the LA traffic die down before we make our trek back to the OC. After dinner we're walking back to our care and my girl sees the Anacapa Brewing sign.... I am excited.
The inside is attractive, nice local bar type feel. As soon as we walk in the door we are greeted by a gentleman, manager or co-owner I assume.
I'm dead tired, belly full of food, all I can do is throw back a taster flight. Started with the Golden Ale, and was pleasantly surprised. Usually the beer I dislike the most at brewpubs really seemed to work here. Nice balance of hops and malts, clean, crisp, definitely a summer time session brew. Also worth noting were the Pinniped Porter and Pierpoint IPA. Overall, the beer was slightly above average. nothing extraordinary. A great place to stop in if you're in the area. I know the next time we go to the Channel Islands we will be stopping here again for sure.

We went on a weekday early afternoon. Once we got service, the waitress was very attentive. Both the SW Cobb salad and garden veggie pizza were great. Beer selection was limited and house brews were very "safe". We tried the Santa Rosa red, Pierpont IPA, and Harvest Pumpkin. All were acceptable, but nothing much above average.
There are 3 TVs and various seating options. WIFI was free and dogs are allowed outside. Staff was friendly to us as visitors.
We left in search of tastier beer.
