Not sure this one is actually a brewery but I donít know what to think anymore. Do the admins want us to leave all Oggiís and BJs as brewpubs even if they donít brew? In my opinion if they donít actually brew anything how can it be a brewpub? Iíll leave it for now and change it later if a decision is ever made. Also, itís possible that there is actually a brewery in the back but I didnít see one and all the other Oggiís that Iíve been to that actually brew display the equipment prominently.
This is in a shopping center on Soledad Canyon in the middle of Santa Clarita. When I pulled into the parking lot the first building I saw had some neon signs out front from Firestone and somewhere else (canít remember but it wasnít a macro) so I just assumed that this was it. There were no signs anywhere on that side of the building. Inside itís set up like an old diner. Turns out that itís actually not Oggis but they have better beer on tap (Firestone, Lagunitas, and a few others). The Oggiís on the other hand sports a Great White neon and has only the house beers plus three Firestone handles and some macros. Probably should have stayed at the other place.
This Oggiís has their standard eight house beers on plus a few other things but no seasonals or small batch stuff. The food menu is the standard Oggiís menu and they have some pretty good deals during happy hour. I got an order of the Oggiís Sticks for half off. Itís for gluttons like myself. They take half a pizza (minus the sauce) and cut it into bread sticks and provide ranch and marinara dipping sauces. $4 for half a pizza, not bad. And you can add whatever pizza toppings you want. The service was friendly, the group of guys at the bar were getting sauced and provided entertainment, and the prices were good ($10 + tip for half a pizza and a pint of beer).The glass of Torey Pines tasted kind of old. Oh well, at least they played some Grand Funk on the radio.

Good pizza and a couple decent brews. Nothing that really stood out good or bad. worth a stop.

A pretty chill restaurant in a plaza. Loads of TVs around and a big bar. Seems like it could be a fairly family friendly place. The beer was decent, but not exceptional. The food was very good but again, not exceptional. I would say this is worth a visit if you are in the area - I mean what else can you do in Santa Clarita? - but I wouldnít go out of my way to get here.

I live in Santa Clarita a beer wasteland for sure. Oggis with its overload of TVs tuned into every sporting event available has more of a romper room atmosphere then a brew pub vibe going on. Just as Dogbrick stated Chuck E Cheese fits very well. Its filled with loud kids out of control while mom and dad drink and feast on what they have the nerve to call pizza. From day one the beers have always been nothing special. Its just that simple.
I would sum Oggis up as an average brewery and a somewhat less then average family restaurant.

(Visited 02/2008): This Oggiís location is in Santa Clarita on Soledad Canyon Rd, which is a few miles up Rte 14 from where it splits from the 5. It is near the road and has a good sized private lot.
The inside is open and spacious. There is a central walkway between table seating, and the bar is in the rear. There is a small arcade and TVs everywhere. Definitely a Chuck E Cheese meets TGI Fridayís atmosphere, considering how many yelling children were there. The bar features a lot of wine bottles and mugs for their mug club.
Oggiís has 7 different beers available, including one as a Left Coast, plus MacTarnahanís Original Honey Beer as a guest. I did not note any bottled options. The beers go from Blonde to Stout without anything too unique in the middle. The Oggiís beers are available in a sampler for about $7. All of them are average to above average.
Service here was good on a Wednesday evening. The bartender has his group of regulars but still found time to talk about their beers with me.
Oggiís pizzas are the main draw, and the one I got to go turned out to be very good. They have a couple dozen different kinds, and a lot of them looked interesting.
Overall I probably would not make this a regular hangout because of the chaotic atmosphere, but the beers are good enough that coupled with the great pizza I would visit here again.

Ambiance can be summed up in three words: family sports bar. Weird, huh? Lots of flat screen TVs everywhere you look bombarding you with sports of every imaginable flavor. Always lots of hot young girls there when I go. Go figure. Anyway, the service I have received on my four trips out there has never been short of good. The food is better than some other pizza ín beer places (BJís) and the pizza itself is certainly the equal of the excellent Pizza Port. They always have seven of their own brews on tap as well as macros and Stella Artois and Firestone Doubel Barrel. I did go to one beer tasting in a back room there about a year ago (between April í06 and early í07) that was one of the rougher-around-the-edges tastings Iíve attended. Still, at least they had one. Overall, not worth the trip if you live far away. But, if you live in LA, even a place like this is hard to find. Why is LA such a beer-poor town, anyway?

Oggiís has great awarded beers and superb pizza (my favorite is the Field Goal). It has nice sit down restaurant type seating, a pub area, plus a patio area. Although itís not the greatest in ambiance, it makes up for it in great beers and pizza. The Santa Clarita beer brewers club meets here monthly, but they are primarily drinkers vs. brewers. Maltose Falcons in Woodland Hills is much better as a club. Overall a slightly better than average brewery and restaurant.
