Decent place. Place was empty, but the service was good. Near the beach. Barely had any of their own beer (2 beers), some decent other selections. Not bad.

15th July 2014, happy hour mid-afternoon. The brewpub sits above a Baskin-Robins ice cream outlet on the road that leads to the pier, just one hundred yards or so from the seafront. Sat at the bar and looked around, not overly impresses: five beers on tap, two of which were their own. I had a taster of their two and stupidly ordered a pint of the Blonde. I did not enjoy it at all. The Karl Stauss Big Barrel however was very good. No food for me and I did not notice anyone else eating. Bartender was just doing his job and there seemed no interaction with any of the customers or the serving girls, going through the motions without a smile or nod. Basic layout with a balcony and an open plan main area, few TV screens about. No reason to go here apart from a tick or two for their beers, I will not return.

Iíve been here several times over the years and each time Iíve been disappointed. Itís a decent restaurant and all, but the beer is pretty bad. The service is pretty slow as well. You have to walk up the stairs to get into the place and there is a hostess, usually, that will eventually get you a table. Iíve never wanted to wait for a table so Iíve just sat at the bar to try some tasters. Usually about 20 minutes is enough for me if the beer is bad, which it is here. At least they have some guest beers, though those arenít the most interesting either. Last time I was there the guest taps included Great White and some other stuff that I wasnít excited about. These days the tap list looks a little better with some Green Flash and Oscar Blues. Huntington is a nice place (though itís expensive and parking sucks worse than San Francisco) so I may stop in again to see if the beers have gotten any better.

3 aug 2013. Four house beers on tap and three guest taps. The atmosphere was between a sports bar and a beach bar. Server really didn't want to be there and it was very obvious. Still, it was busy so there was a good vibe.

This place is miserable. Bar/brewpub is located upstairs. Set up like more of a sports bar than anything. Only a handful of house beers at a given time, and thereís a good chance at least one of them is out. The house beers that are on tap are probably awful. Just go to Beachwood instead.

A clean and cozy brewing company. Amibiance is very nice. The decor of the wood bar is very eye catching. Service is decent with many of their own beer specials to select from. Overall, a place Iíd hang out in and sample some beers if I was in the area.

Ok but nothing to write home about... The patio is the highlight but if you were to drink blind folded you would agree with me that this place is nothing out of the ordinary.

The beer selection was minimal and the beer was generic in taste. The food menu was more diverse than the beer selection and was quite delicious. The atmosphere and location were very welcoming. The patio provided a picturesque view of Huntington Beach while allowing the sounds of the ocean.

Stopped in while in the area for lunch. 4 of us had different picks from the menu and everyone enjoyed.
I had a Swartzbeir (sp?) and found it very good. Very similar to a fine porter.

Here it was Super Bowl Sunday about 2 hours before the game and what did we do go find a brewpub to find some good beer, food and atmosphere. We found it a little place tucked up on the second floor over looking the Huntington Beach Pier. We had the place we got some beer. They had a sampler and the beers where all very tasty. There where some flaws but hell it was the great atmosphere we loved. Very loud inside with the music blaring at times so it was not the best for a casual lunch. The sampler had pale ales IPAís, Hefe and dark Porters this was a good picking of beers. They even still had some Xmas brew left and that was very tasty. This is a great place to hit if ever in the area. The view is one of the best and be sure to sit outside if you can the music is quieter out there. Thanks for a nice Super Bowl pre brews Huntington Beach Beer Co. Oh I almost forgot if you have kids they have great kids food and the crayons and coloring paper was the logo of the place I will keep that forever.
