Surf Brewery to Double Capacity

Ventura, CA: Today Surf Brewery®, a small packaging craft brewery, open since 2011, with an onsite tasting room and homebrew shop, announced that they have begun their expansion that will double capacity. The existing foot print of the existing building on Market Street, an industrial area of Ventura, with several wineries nearby, will not be enlarged, just added equipment and refrigeration space. The added capacity will allow Surf to continue to provide their local craft beer to the growing demand in Ventura County for Artisan beers.

Mondo’sÔäó Blonde Ale, named after a local beginning surf spot, is a favorite at local fish taco restaurants. The new AerialÔäó IPA, a classic west coast, aggressively hopped beer, named after an aggressive surf maneuver, has gained a lot of popularity at Surf’s tasting room as well as restaurants in East County. Plans are to bottle Aerial with the expansion. General Manager and Co-founder Bill Riegler states, “Equipment orders were placed back in January and initial plans were submitted to the City of Ventura in April. It’s a lengthy and costly process for any small business to try and grow, no one makes it easy for you, and we financed everything internally, no bank loans or additional investors. Beyond the local need, this added capacity will also allow us to reach more of our fans down along the coast of Southern California who have been asking for a larger presence; Redondo Beach, Huntington Beach, La Jolla, Escondido.”
