One of Ventura's favorite pubs/"drinking establishments". If you can't find a couple of different brews here you can get into...you might as well give up drinking beer. They have more choices in beers than anywhere else in town. They serve great meals and have big...More

They keep 101 beers on tap. Shouldn't be hard to find some you like. Also the food is good, above average for this sort of establishment. A cool place to go with other beer drinkers. Prices are average as is the service.

great draft and craft beer selection. The food is just okay, sandwiches and burgers are really greasy, messy, and hard to eat because so. Parking is limited as well.

We love good beer, and this place has plenty of it! Great service and food, too. This has a nice, casual atmosphere. We were very glad to discover it. The flights were very reasonably priced, too.

Had their garlic and truffle fries. You could smell the garlic as they were brought to the table. If you think that there's never enough garlic on fries, these will satisfy that craving. Fries were done perfectly and just the perfect amount of garlic.
