Une salle de dégustation avec food truck à l’entrée et des visites de la brasserie à chaque 30 minutes. La maison a la vivacité d’esprit de vendre des échantillons de 2oz pour 1$, parfois 2$. J’ai pu gouter une bonne partie de l’impressionnante liste pour 20$. L’endroit est souvent bondé mais avec le bon roulement c’est facile de trouver une place. Des bouteilles plus difficiles à trouver se vendent également sur place.

(Visited 11/2014): The Bruery is located on Dunn Way in Placentia off Placentia Avenue, not too far from the 57 and Riverside Freeway. The tap room/brewery anchors an office park, and there is a silo with the logo on it which makes it pretty easy to spot.

The inside opens to a large tasting room with tables taking up the majority of the floor. The L-shaped bar runs along the left and rear of the establishment. The walls are cream-colored and there is a large board to the left of the bar listing the available beers. Below that is a stand where tasting cards are filled up to turn in at the bar. Framed labels behind the bar, as well as windows that offer a view into the brewery.

There are around 40 beers on tap in the tasting room, with many seasonals, one-offs and treatments. On my visit they had Couverteur, Golden Orchard, Mash, a few different Smoking Wood, a few So Happens It’s Tuesday, and Seven Swans among others. Samplers are available at varying prices. The beers were all good, and most of them seemed to be in the double-digit ABV range. Bottles are available to-go as well.

Service at the bar on a busy Sunday evening was good. the staff was patient and knowledgeable with our multiple sampler flights.

The Bruery doesn’t serve food but regularly have food trucks outside.

Overall I am happy to finally get to visit this place. The quality and variety were pretty much all you could ask for at a brewer’s tasting room.

Drove 2 hrs through LA traffic to get there on 10/29. Turns out that they had a special tasting event for members only. Not mentioned on website where I confirmed they were open. Guy at the door thought it was funny. Thought it was funny that they had turned others away who had come a long way for nothing as well. I guess they have enough customers to go around..

Awesome spot in the middle of nowhere. Great loud atmosphere on a Sunday afternoon. Kid friendly. Maybe 30-40 of their own taps available, lots of take-home bottles. Great friendly service.

Great spot. Loads of taps with excellent variety, including lots of limited release stuff. Prices are pretty decent, and you can get flights/ sample-size pours of the beers. The ambiance is good, there’s lots of seating, high ceilings, a view into the brewery. The staff is friendly and effective. They also sell a handful of bottles for takeaway. Definitely a place worth visiting if you are anywhere near.

Joined the RS this year, so was excited to check out the tasting room. Place was packed on Saturday about an hour after they opened. Tons of beer on tap and tasters available (some were a bit pricey though). I still can’t believe all the stuff they had on tap.

Stopped in early Saturday afternoon, and it was quickly filling up, but I had no trouble grabbing a seat at the bar and ordering and receiving a flight of beer. Tremendous selection of exotics that I’m guessing are not available elsewhere. Some of the beer is frankly pretty "out there", but they’ree obviously well-crafted and fun to try. Friendly service, good prices on the drafts (bottles looked expensive), but I wish I had some food to soak up some of the high abv.

Visited on a Friday, arriving right at 2:00 when they opened. Short drive from SNA airport. Slightly dodgy feel to the area around, but inside was really nice and chill. Lots of spots to sit. I set up at the bar. You have to go up to the register to order though, which was a little annoying, but the flights were filled pretty fast and you just took the beers back to your seat and chilled with them anyway. Chatted with two Reserve Society guys, one seemed to be annoyed by people and the other guy was really fun - lots of info about the bewery and just geeking out about good beer. Tons of beer on tap. It is HIGHLY annoying that they have some that only Reserve Society members can order. Being from out of town, this felt very shitty. Charge me a little more for a pour, or only let non RS people get tasters or something. This is honestly the only bad thing I have to say about the place.
