After having e-mailed the responsible manager, we were welcomed with open arms for a quick brewery tour outside opening hours. Staff was really warm and open and always helpful. The new tasting room is really nice and offers a view on the brewery as well. Perfect lay-out, nice selection (draft and bottle) and premium selction for their selected memb ers... Wish I was living in California so I could make part of the Reserve Society!!

One of my favorite brewries to visit. The beer is outstanding and the vibe is great. Big tasting room with losts of seating. Food is hit or miss because of the food trucks again. But like i said earlier i go there for the awesome beer.

This place rocks. 20+ house taps with $1-$2 samplers. Kind of a warehouse feel but cool. A must stop when in the area.

Outstanding tasting room. The tap lists/bottle choices speak for themselves. Without a member in your group you will missout on the best draft options and bottle choices. Make friends. There was an awesome food truck outside also.

We visited The Bruery on 20.12.2013. First it looks to be a typical US microbrewery place, in the middle of an office complex, garage style. However they are different and are offering great, very special beers. They have a round 30 ales on tap! Many of them sour, lambic style - very very good. Had a sour stout, amazing.

Been here tons of times now. The bar is located right in the center of the tasting room and right next to the equipment. A great deal of the space these days is full of barrels, so the room to stand and hang out has been diminished a bit. The service is always quick and friendly, and the bartenders are knowledgeable and willing to help customers. Like most breweries some of the beers I really enjoy, others not so much, but that’s to be expected. No food is served in the tasting room, but there is almost always a food truck outside for your convenience. Prices are fair, though like most things Bruery, are a little on the high side. But if there are more than one or two beers you want to try, the flight is a great deal. For $8 you get to keep your Bruery tulip and I think you get 4 or 5 samples.

Fantastic fun place. Finally got my ass over there today with my girlfriend Cyn and her brother Stuart. Great vibe in the brewery, the space is set up with bottle storage on one side and barrels and brewing equipment on the other with a tasting space in the middle. Saw Patrick around but didnt get to chat, it was relatively lively for the day after Christmas. Nice to have Pretzels and spicy mustard free with samples. Though I question the super spicy mustard with keeping the palate fresh. Prices are very reasonable including the $2 for 4 flights. I only have one complaint, there appears to be a limited number of beers available for growler fills, despite there being more beers on tap. Overall great place look forward to going back. Well worth the round trip hour and 20 minute drive from San Pedro.

This place is a must stop at! Partick and his wife are greats hosts, and Patrick is an awesome brewer and a great guy! Small brewery (bruery), it looks like they will out grow it soon. A couple fermenters and tons of used and new barrels aging (at least 30). Small tasting bar. It is hard to believe these guys have only been in business for a short while. Patrick gave myself and my two friends a brief and personalized 1 on 1 tour. Great guy, I wish him all the best. The brews on tap and bottle were amazing. Free cheese and pretzeles to go with. Everyone there were kind and attentive. Even got a couple bottles that Patrick had reserved for his father (i.e. no longer for sale). Great expirience, I plan on comming back often. By far the best brewery in the Los Angeles Area, and easily a great So Cal brewery to rival the talents of Alesmith and PP/LA!!
