Finally, they have a tasting room. For years I assumed that they only way to get their beers was at Oggis or the couple of bottled offerings that show up at Bevmo occasionally but it always confused me that a brewery that must make a ton of beer wouldnt have a tasting room. Sounds like the tasting room just opened a few months ago. Unfortunately itís hidden in a warehouse at the far end of San Clemente. The good news is that itís in San Clemente and that itís only a few miles from Pizza Port.
Tried most of the dozen or so taps and surprisingly about 2/3 of them were new to me. They even had a barrel aged version of Voodoo, a pils, and a Berliner. Most of the beers were at least alright and I could see myself stopping in again sometime to see whatís new and since I am in the area a few times a year.
Prices were reasonable, service was friendly, and they had pretzels but no real food. I guess that is an excuse to head to Pizza Port afterwards (which is the next exit down 5).

We visited this brewery beginning of May 2014. Located a bit outside of St.Clemente in a kind of industrial area. The tap room is separated from the brewery, therefore brewery not present in the drinking area. Was quite crowded and not too easy to get our beers. Staff not very friendly. I liked the beers, especially their IPAís are great and they have many of them. Due to the beer quality I recommend this place, although atmosphere and staff have improvement potential.

Kind of hard to find as you have to go around the corner and to a separate building from where the actual brewery and Oggiís/Left Coast sign is. Good sized tasting room with a nice open feeling to it. Long bar with plenty of tables. Service was quick and fairly friendly. Flights are 6 beers for 10 dollars, but you can also buy individual samples (most beers are $2), as well as full glasses. A handful of draft only beers as well as some of the typical bottled offerings. Cool place, but the beers arenít that great.

Had the opportunity to get a sneak peek at Left Coast Breweryís new tasting room in San Clemente this past week. Left Coast is part of Oggiís Brewing and they have some amazing beers coming up in the brewery only tasting room. Met with some of the family owner/operators and very personal and knowledgeable. I believe they will be open this week, evenings and weekends so check out their website for full details! Had a personal Brewery Tour and enjoyed learning about their variety of taps and upcoming offerings.
