(Camarillo, CA) – Institution Ale Co. announces the upcoming grand opening of Camarillo’s first brewery this June. The 2,900 square feet brewery will be located off of Pleasant Valley Road, and offer a spacious tasting room where guests can taste beer and purchase beer to-go. Institution Ale Co. will provide Camarillo with a fresh appreciation for craft beer and a new social spot for all to enjoy.
The new brewery blossomed from one local family’s ambitions to transform their longtime hobby of home brewing into the town’s first craft brewery. Co-Owners Roger, Ryan, and Shaun Smith will be a father and sons team, brewing unfiltered American style ales.
“Ventura County is starting to embrace craft beer and we can’t wait to be a part of the local beer culture,” said Co-Owner Shaun Smith. “It’s going to be a lot of fun making beer for the community we’ve been a part of for so many years.”
The brewery will feature a modern-industrial style tasting room for visitors open five days a week, offering tasters and glasses of beer. Beer will also be available to-go in growlers and kegs.
“The tasting room will be a great atmosphere to sit down and enjoy a beer,” said Co-Owner Ryan Smith. “We will also offer tours of our brewery regularly for those who want to learn more about the brewing process.”
The brewery plans to unveil its three flagship beers when they open along with their summer seasonal. Once production hits full stride, six to ten beers will be on tap at all times including cask conditioned ales, barrel-aged beer, experimental beers, and more.
