Despite living just a few miles from here for over a year, I never went here until yesterday, when I now live 15 miles away. Sort of a small location, much of which is taken up by the bar. Quite a few taps, about 6-8 of which are house beers and some decent guest taps. Friendly bar staff and service. Good prices on the house beers (a pint of DIPA for about $4.50). Didnít eat, but they have the same menu as all the other Oggiís. Youíre probably better off going to Bootleggerís, Bruery, or Tustin, but in this particular area, itís not a terrible option.

Nice big bar and about 30 taps, 7 house beers, guests and a few BMC. The pizza was average. The restaurant was filled with families that looked like they just came from kids soccer/baseball games. Lots of TVís on, when it was getting close to the start of the USC game it was getting too busy and loud for me.
I had 3 house beers, all were pretty solid.

Arrived around 5:00 on a recent Saturday evening and got a seat at the bar. Glad I arrived when I did as there was a waiting line formed by 6:00.
Bartender was friendly, quick and very informative about the beers available. They had about 20 taps which consisted of a variety of styles and brewers, none of which I would consider to be common beers. Beer was served in proper glassware, perfect temperature and was definitely fresh. In the couple of hours i was there 3 kegs were kicked and switched to different brands. Enjoyed a Racers X, Blind Pig, Stone Belgium IPA, and a Pliny the Elder while there.
While everyone raved about the food I thought it was average at best, no comparison to BBQ places back east. Could be a personal preference as i prefer my BBQ to be cooked with sauce on, not dry rubbed and sauced later. Blue cheese grits to die for but the ribs were tough and chewy.
This is a definite stop for all beer lovers when in the area and was definitely my favorite spot during my week in Southern California. You can tell it is run by people that love beer and you have to love a place where the owner is active and visible in the daily operation.

I thought this place was alright, they had a couple decent beers (California Gold, Paradise Pale, & the Sunset Wheat). I also had a mixture of the Scottish and the Black Magic stout which was delicious. The servers really didnít know much about the beers but the bartenders did know quite a bit. The pizzaís were pretty good. If you like somewhat hot/spicy things I would definitely suggest trying the Slam Dunk.

An average brewpub with mediocre food. The staff did not know anything about their beers.

I hit this place a few weeks after opening. The beers werenít as good as the San Diego location and this place is a bit out of the way (unless youíre in the neighborhood).
