Stopped in here yesterday, my first time visiting this place after hearing about it for years. Atmosphere was good. People eating at most of the tables, including some of the ones right in front of the beers I was trying to look at. Service was great. I was asked if I needed help twice and the woman who checked me out could not have been nicer. Quality was great. Food looked top notch, even though I didnít partake this time, and the beers all were high quality offerings. Selection was great. They have a ton of beer packed into a small place. I was able to find two Almanacís I had been searching for so that was a welcome surprise. No food this time but it looked awesome from what I saw. Prices were more than reasonable on most of the bottles I was interested in. Overall a really nice bottle shop that I would definitely return to in the future.

Tucked in the back in a double strip mall, interior is an old school local deli that reeks of deli pickle. Big local crowd here eating at tables and at the bar. You have to sort of invade peopleís privacy to peruse the bottle selection. Separated mostly by country with a lot of Belgian, English, and German stuff. Nothing too hard to find. CA local selection was solid, but again, nothing of note. Organization was scattered. Sort of a "meh" bottle shop that was probably the bomb back in the day but now is average. Didnít eat here. Didnít see any staff for beer. They had a big tap list but I didnít stay for a beer.

I went here for my 21st birthday. First off they congratulated me on turning the golden age and also made me feel welcome. Then everyone in the restaurant sang me a happy birthday and the owner met me and gave me a free brownie. First beers I HAD? Noble Ale Works El Gringo with Habanero peppers and Port Older Viscosity on tap. This place has a lot of beers I donít see in other stores and their staff is pretty cool. This place is really growing on me.

This is definitely one of the most unique beer stores I have ever set foot in. Upon first entry, place is a small bustling restaurant with a handful of mostly filled tables. There is a small bar with a couple open seats. Draft beer selection was fantastic, granted, most of them were for the hopheads like myself. Food was even better. Perfect place to stop for lunch, and maybe some casual beer shopping. Selection was very haphazard, but some nice finds on the shelf. It was obvious the owners truly appreciated their beer and made an effort to order nothing but the best. There may have been a few poor choices amongst the shelves, but hey, who doesnít have some crappy beer on their shelves?! Workers were all extraordinary friendly, and made for a very welcomed environment. Disappointed I wonít be able to stop by here more often!

Iíve been here a number of times over the last five years. Sandwiches are great, the Bernie especially. The Bernie is wildly overpriced but excellent. The beers on tap are always top notch and some of the best in OC. Again, wildly overpriced. The beers in the cooler are slightly overpriced but not nearly as bad when you consider you often canít find the beers anywhere else in the area. I still love coming back but canít make it a habit based on the prices.

Cool, old school deli near the Bruery Provisions store. They have a giant open cooler on the side of the store with hundreds of beers as well as a good number of taps. There wasnít anything particularly interesting when I was there, but I thought it was freaking cool that you can get some draft beer at a deli. The bottle selection was very good. They seem to specialize in good German imports. I stocked up on some good dopplebocks and dunkels. I didnít get any food here. Nice place.

This is a local German style deli and beer store located in Orange, CA run by The Hollingshead family. You cannot find a more specifically unique draft list, with everything from small allocations from Lagunitas and Bear Republic to hard to find sours and high quality European exports. The food is fantastic, especially the turkey and avocado on squaw or the italian sandwiches. The service is unquestionably knowledgable, and your a stranger only but once.The only down side is the prices. They can be a bit steep. However, this is a great establshiment and certainly one of the best in orange county.

Iíd love a sandwich place like this nearby. Good selection of beer, though its primarily German, Belgian, and local. Thatís still a pretty good selection though.

One of my favorite places in Orange county for food and high quality beer. Great sandwiches, but the beer selection is unbelievable. They keep a smaller tap than other places, but the tap selection is rare (AleSmith, Russian River, etc.). Itís a small place, and you might not find a seat, but that adds to its ambiance. Family ran and friendly service.
