Pull up a Chair, Stay Awhile

Opened in August 2014, Poseidon Brewing Co. has made its mark as one sea-riously popular watering hole. In short order, we’ve grown both the size of our brewery and beer menu…a testimony to great demand and the entrepreneurial innovation backing it.

No doubt about it, the proof is in our pints…and why our modest brew house is now a reputable port-o-call. It’s where people go to experience Ventura’s commercial craft-brew industry.

So come with friends. With family. Your dog. Or on your own. While beer tasting in Ventura, kick back and find yourself both at home and at ease. At Poseidon Brewing Co., you’re part of our crew!

Label for Taproom
Lager - Helles
|
5.5%
Malt forward, balanced, bready/floral >>> For our very first Lager beer, we brewed the highly drinkable German-style Helles. We used 2 German malts along with Hallertau hops to bring you Liberty Card Lager. With a touch of malt sweetness that balances the spicy floral German hop flavors and light bitterness, this is a beer for beer lovers. And take note, you’ll want to make sure you have your liberty card in hand because you can’t drink just one, especially on a hot day!

Kellerbier / Zwickelbier
|
5.5%
Malt forward, balanced, bready/floral >>> Zoey’s Zwickelbier is a hazy German lager that’s cloudy, refreshing and sessionable – and best consumed extremely fresh. It tastes like it’s straight off the tank, which it basically is. In fact, zwickel refers to a port in tanks that allows brewers to taste and test the progress of fermentation. This unfiltered lager is balanced and unpretentious, just like it’s doggy namesake Zoey, and is the perfect choice for a beer or two after work!

Blonde Ale
|
6.2%
Malt forward, sweet, honey,/watermelon >>> For our second experimental blonde ale, we kept the grain bill simple and the hop additions to a minimum to complement the 1 ½ barrels of watermelon juice that was added to this brew during fermentation. The malt and fruit characteristics of this brew really shine through on the palate, and clean aromas of honey, cucumber, cantaloupe and watermelon are also present. Crisp and refreshing, a pint of Washed Ashore Watermelon Blonde Ale is a great way to celebrate summer.

Red Ale - Irish
|
6.0%
Malt forward, balanced, caramel/roasted barley >>> Ironclad Irish Red Ale is a malt forward brew loaded with toasted barley, toffee, caramel and buckwheat flavors. We used Northern Brewer and East Kent Goldings hops in moderation to allow the malt flavors to take center stage. Easy drinking and smooth with a pleasant roasted barley finish, this beer is sure to bring you luck. Sláinte mhaith!

Pale Ale - American
|
5.4%
Hop forward, dry, oranges/floral >>> Bubblehead is a citrus-centric American Pale Ale. We dry hopped this beauty with Cascade hops and plenty of blood orange zest from our friends at King and King Ranch. Strong citrus and mild pine aromas are present and the malt profile is mild with a solid hop bite in the finish. If you love flavorful pale ales, this is a must have!

California Common
|
5.8%
Malt forward, balanced, toast/caramel >>> Borchard Beer is a California Common, also known as a Steam Beer, that is a 100% American-style lager brewed with a lager yeast strain that ferments at warmer ale-like temperatures. This method of fermenting dates back to the late 1800s in California when refrigeration was a great luxury. It’s a medium-bodied ale with a toasted and caramel-like malt character in flavor and aroma, is also mildly fruity, and yet has an assertive hop bitterness. Rustic yet complex, this beer is all about returning to our roots and commemorating a time-honored brewing style that also celebrates over 150 years of the Borchard family’s farming heritage in the Oxnard Plains.

Pale Ale - American
|
6.0%
Hop forward, balanced, stone fruit/pine/citrus >>> We kept the grain bill simple, 2-Row and a light crystal malt, and then loaded it up with Simcoe and Chinook hops for our interpretation of a West Coast-Style Pale Ale. Full of stone fruit, pine and citrus aromas and flavors, Plankton is full-flavored, easy drinking and finishes with a lingering hop bitterness!

Hop Forward, Balanced, Grapefruit/Floral >>> Grapefruit IPA is brewed with American hops and malts in conjunction with fresh grapefruit zest from Mud Creek Ranch in Santa Paula, CA. Grapefruit aromatics and flavors are present as well as a pleasant floral component that accentuates the hop profile of this easy drinking IPA. Since we opened the brewery, Grapefruit IPA has been one of our top sellers. Cheers!

Hop forward, balanced, coconut/pineapple >>> For this experimental tropical IPA, we decided to go all out. We aged it on over 25 pounds of organic toasted coconut. And also added nearly a barrel of unfiltered freshly juiced pineapple. This exotic brew exhibits aromas of toasted coconut, pineapples, mangoes and passion fruit flowers. Each sip starts sweet and finishes with a long finishing hop bitterness. It’s like Hawaii in a pint glass. Kāmau kī`aha!

Juicy IPA
|
7.8%
Hop forward, bitter, earthy/citrus/stone fruit >>> We used generous amounts of Amarillo and Columbus hops from the boil straight through to the second dry hop, loading this juicy India Pale Ale with earthy, citrus and stone fruit aromas and flavors. And we kept the grain bill light, including 2-Row and White Wheat, to really let the hops shine through. Hop forward, slightly dank and with a lingering bitterness, Hyperbaric definitely lives up to its name!

IPA - American

Hop Forward, Balanced, Citrus/Floral/Woody >>> For this India Pale Ale, we brewed with one malt—Golden Promise®™—and one hop—Centennial. A rich golden in color, this beer showcases a robust malty sweetness and approachable hop nuances. Golden Promise is a beautiful heritage variety that is a perfect backdrop for hops. Centennial offers citrus and floral aromas and flavors, think grapefruit and orange blossom, along with a touch of soft woody pine. This beer is smooth with a clean yet assertive hop bitterness on the finish. All around a beautiful SMaSH IPA!

IPA - American
|
7.0%
Hop forward, balanced, fruity/tropical >>> For this American India Pale Ale, we brewed with one malt – American 2-row barley – and one hop – El Dorado. The shorthand for this style of IPA is a "SMaSH IPA", or "Single Malt and Single Hop IPA". Pale yellow in color, this beer showcases crisp, clean malt flavors and approachable hop nuances. Early harvested aromas of pear and melon mature into deep, tropical and stone fruit aromas. A flavor for every beer drinker. This beer is smooth with a clean yet assertive hop bitterness on the finish.

IPA - Imperial / Double
|
8.8%
Double India Pale Ale; Hop forward, bitter, tropical fruit/tangerines >>> For this Double IPA, we focused on extracting as much hop flavor as possible without extracting excessive hop bitterness. We used over three pounds per barrel of Columbus, Cascade, Centennial and Mosaic hops. We kept the water profile free of minerals to deceptively decrease bitterness and soften the mouth feel. With hop aromas of mangoes, guavas and tangerines, Dirty Diver is sure to satisfy your craving for hops!

Schwarzbier

5.0%
German-Style Black Lager; Malt forward, balanced, coffee/toast/caramel >>> We brewed a Schwarzbier, what may be the oldest continuously brewed beer style in the world. It literally means “black beer” in German. Brewed with all German grains and hops, this black lager balances smooth roasted malt flavors with moderate hop bitterness. Each sip will remind you of drinking a pilsner but with notes of coffee and toast, and hints of caramel. We dare you to enjoy a couple and then say Snorkeling Schwarzbier five times fast!

Dive! Dive! Dive! IPA

IPA - American

7.0%
Hop forward, bitter, pine/floral >>> We used abundant amounts of Centennial hops during the boil of Dive! Dive! Dive!, providing a bitter citrus hoppiness with each sip. We then dry-hopped this American India Pale Ale with Chinook and Centennial hops, not once, but twice. Chinook provides grapefruit, spice and pine aromas, while Centennial introduces lemon and floral notes on the nose. One of the hoppiest beers we’ve brewed to date, this beer is not for the faint of heart.

We are a dog-friendly tasting room as long as your dog is friendly. Please follow these “Tasting Room Dog Etiquette Rules”: Dogs must be kept on a leash and within reach of their owner at all times. Avoid the “Three Bs”: Begging, Barking, and Biting. Please don’t allow your dog, even if it’s a small one, on our chairs, couches, tables, or the bar.

​We happily sell and fill Poseidon Brewing Co. growlers. We also fill generic clean ones in legally approved sizes (32 and/or 64 ounces) only. If you bring in another brewery’s growler, respectfully cover identifying artwork with shrink wrap, painter’s tape, or another material, so your growler looks, well, truly generic. Curious about the California Craft Brewing Association’s growler filling guidelines? Click here.

Also, please make sure your growler is clean when you bring it in for a fill. While we’ll give it a quick wash and sanitize before refilling it, we are not able to clean and fill those that have become super funky, i.e. growing 3-dimensional mold inside.
