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!

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!

Blonde Ale
|
6.0%
Malt forward, sweet, honey/tangerine/cranberry >>> For our seventh experimental blonde ale, we kept the grain bill simple and the hop additions to a minimum to complement the ½ barrel of tangerine fruit puree added to this brew during fermentation. For a fall twist, we added cranberry puree. The malt and fruit characteristics of this brew really shine through on the palate, and clean aromas of honey, tangerine and cranberry are also present. Crisp and refreshing, a pint of Tangerine Submarine is a great way to celebrate the autumn season!

Scottish Ale
|
5.9%
Malt forward, balanced, cherries/caramel >>> Sea Monkey is a Scottish-style ale brewed with hops, malt and yeast from the United Kingdom. We threw in 20 pounds of beechwood smoked malt for good measure. This crimson-colored brew has notes of dried cherries and crystal malt, with just a hint of smoke. Malty and full-bodied, this beer will lift your spirits and maybe even your kilt. Sláinte!

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!

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!

IPA - American
|
6.7%
Malt and hop forward, balanced, stone fruit/citrus >>> Inspired by Poseidon’s brewery dog Rosie, who was both charming (malty) and feisty (hoppy), this Red IPA is the perfect beer for crisp, sunny fall days. For this IPA, we blended maroon-hued crystal malts with Magnum, Chinook, Centennial and Simcoe hops. The balance between its warm hues and malty backbone, loaded with red currant and stone fruit flavors, is coupled with a crisp, citrusy bite from the four hops that fill your pint. No doubt, Rosie’s Red IPA is the ideal beer for both malt and hop heads alike.

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 - 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!

Porter - Other
|
5.8%
Malt forward, balanced, chocolate/roast >>> Our robust porter is bursting with hearty malt flavors, including hints of toffee, cacao beans, freshly ground coffee and toasted hazelnuts. Crystal hops were used to provide a delicate and mild hop profile. Pokers’ Porter was named for Poseidon Brewing Company’s first “brew dog.” Although no longer with us, he used to frequently be seen guarding our brewhouse. His robust personality inspired us to name a beer in his honor, and we now brew it in memory of him. Just like the real Pokers used to be, this robust porter is full-bodied and jam-packed with personality.

Oyster Stout
|
5.5%
Roast malt forward, balanced, roasted coffee/dark chocolate >>> So we did a thing…as an ode to our seafaring roots…and brewed a Stout with Fanny Bay oysters. Sea Warrior Stout is a dark, rich and aromatic beer. It has a crisp yet smooth mouth feel with mild caramel notes, stronger flavors of roasted coffee and dark chocolate, and a hint of the sea. Brewed with Galena and Centennial hops, they bring a touch of citrus to this Stout worthy of the sea warrior Poseidon himself!

Barleywine - Other
|
10.3%
Hop forward, bitter, caramel/resiny >>> All throughout our owner’s naval career, he had these sayings (hundreds of them really!), all collectively referred to as Ollyisms. And one of his most used was “I’m going 100 miles an hour, bullet holes and duct tape.” So it seemed fitting to name this beer, which he’s been wanting to brew since we basically opened, "Bullet Holes and Duct Tape Barleywine" because it's just got a lot going on. This beer is full bodied, hugely malty, assertively bitter, slightly sweet and has a hint alcohol warmth to it as well. You’ll get notes of caramel, toffee and dried fruit on the nose, which carry over to the flavor profile, pair well with the molasses and malt flavors, and round out the strong resiny hop finish on what only can be described as a sippin’ beer.

Taproom FAQs


Poseidon Brewing has made multiple “pivots” to ensure its crew and customers feel both safe and comfortable. While we won’t police every customer or situation, we adhere to local, state and federal health and safety policies around mask wearing, social distancing, hygiene and respect.


Yep—in some cases, we do! On Military Night Thursday, we offer a 10% discount for those in the military as well as those who have served for 20+ years and are now retired. Proof of military ID required! Here’s a link to the ID we’ll be checking. Also, to all those in the beer industry, we offer a 15% discount on Tuesday nights with proof of ID in the form of a current paystub or schedule to verify you’re legit. And we give a 10% discount anytime to American Homebrewers Association members. Bring your membership ID card to get that 10% off!

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.


Depends on the day. Check out our Calendar of Events to see the food truck schedule. Keep in mind, you’re also welcome to bring your own food and enjoy that snack or meal as well.


​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.
