Been dozens of times since they opened, including before they had a license to sell beers in the brewery (when they gave out free samples). Aaron and Patricia have always been super nice and accomodating to us and even gave us a ton of free beer for RBSG.
The tasting room is pretty small and can get pretty crowded but they are in the process of opening the new one so that’ll help matters. Always a food truck outside and music playing. Pints, half pints, and tasters are available on almost everything.
I think their strong suits are hoppy beers and their porters/stouts. Have mixed feelings on their sours. Their barrel aged Golden Chaos is pretty good too when fresh.

One of my go-to stops. Aaron and Patricia are fantastic hosts, very generous, and very friendly. They typically have a ton of different house beers on tap and are always experimenting with new recipes. Great prices and good beers, too.

Another stop on the RBSG bus tour. You can walk in and get tasters or pints right inside the brewery. Sort of like the Lost Abbey set up but 100x more dirty, grimy, right in the thick of the brewing process stepping over hoses and getting sprayed with sanitizer. Tap list was very large. Way more than 8 taps. More like 20. House beers were all very good. Very reasonably priced growler fills and bottles to go. They are moving very soon to a new location so be careful before you plan your trip.

Tasting room in the middle of the brewery! Can’t be completely objective, as we went here during the RBSG and were treated like kings, but great people were serving excellent beers. Would definitely go back.

Beautiful sunny morning I was headed to Bootleggers Brewery. I was met by Aaron the Owner/Head brewer and we talked for a good hour about beer, brewing and did I mention beer? Bootleggers have been running for about 6 months at full tilt and have accounts all over the Fullerton area so I was so glad I was able to see the operations. Yes and taste some awesome brews. I had samples from 7 different beers that ranged from a Hefeweizen, Amber, Golden Belgium, Pumpkin ale, winter, and wonderful American ale that had hops finishing was a Rustic Rye. Oh we also dipped into a barrel and tried some wonderful beer that had been aging for 6 months in the whiskey barrel oh wow when ti is tone I want a growler or two of that. Aaron took me all over showed me what they have and we talked about the wonderful brews they had. This was a great time and a wonderful start to a great day. I know they opened up on an off day and where just perfect hosts. I wish them all the best in becoming very successful. This is a br

Hell yeah! What a great place. So willing to accommodate the RBSG group. They let us try everything and keep the glass. Great people.

Went here on a Saturday. Tiny, crowded brewery in an industrial lot. Inside was crowded with barrels, palates and brewing equipment. No air conditioning. Fun little, down to earth place though. A few chairs, and taps leading straight to the cold storage. All beers were good. And all were free! Pretty fun, and good stuff. I’ll look out for the stuff in the future.

Visited during RBSG. What cool, unsuspecting, unsuspecting place run by an awesome husband and wife team. Tight space wedged into the brewing facility, but the tap list was immense and everything was solid. Looking forward to seeing them grow.

A fairly empty taproom with some beat up chairs and tables. Beer is decent and a laid back atmosphere. Decent selection as well.

This is a very tiny brewery near the DMV in Fullerton. When I arrived, I was the only one in the tasting room. Aaron, the owner/brewer, handed me sample after sample, all free. They had everything from an APA to a lambic, to a smoked wheat to a foreign stout w/ chipotles. It’s small, informal, and the folks are very nice. I enjoyed the beers.
