Went in and sat at the bar, blown away by the 101 choices of beers. Stuck with a selection of beer brewed locally (CA) and after a pint, I went with a 'make your own' flight. Every selection was tasty!

Ordered the tacos and got the beer battered fish, carnitas, and the seared ahi. Every one was delicious! The carnitas was a bit messy but very worth it.

This was a Saturday night and it was quite busy, but at 9pm there wasnt a line at all.

Make no mistake about it - Barrelhouse 101 is all about beer. And a LOT of beer: 101 beers on tap, to be exact. Stopped in for a few during Monday Night Football - they have a massive television that's perfect for sports. Good food, too! If you love sports or beer, Barrelhouse 101 is a must while you're in Ventura.

Stopped in on our walk to a restaurant on a Tuesday and discovered they had a special every Tuesday where they pick two kegs and beers are only $2 until they're empty. I had a flight of 3 different reds/ambers and my wife got a pint of another red. I had misread the number on the menu for the beer I wanted and received a tart beer instead, which was also good. I mentioned it to the waitress and she brought me the one I wanted, which was not my intention, but is told here to show you how great the service is.

This is a great primarily local place but all welcome. Service and food is fantastic. Yes they have that many beers and ALL varieties. Don't miss this if in town

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 screen TVs to watch various sports, also. Great place to chill with your "significant other", or a group of friends. Park around the corner, around the park somewhere, so you don't have to hassle with the parking lot...which gets full quickly, after 5pm.
Bottoms up!
