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.

Awesome spot in the middle of nowhere. Great loud atmosphere on a Sunday afternoon. Kid friendly. Maybe 30-40 of their own taps available, lots of take-home bottles. Great friendly service.

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.

(Visited 11/2014): The Bruery is located on Dunn Way in Placentia off Placentia Avenue, not too far from the 57 and Riverside Freeway. The tap room/brewery anchors an office park, and there is a silo with the logo on it which makes it pretty easy to spot.

The inside opens to a large tasting room with tables taking up the majority of the floor. The L-shaped bar runs along the left and rear of the establishment. The walls are cream-colored and there is a large board to the left of the bar listing the available beers. Below that is a stand where tasting cards are filled up to turn in at the bar. Framed labels behind the bar, as well as windows that offer a view into the brewery.

There are around 40 beers on tap in the tasting room, with many seasonals, one-offs and treatments. On my visit they had Couverteur, Golden Orchard, Mash, a few different Smoking Wood, a few So Happens It’s Tuesday, and Seven Swans among others. Samplers are available at varying prices. The beers were all good, and most of them seemed to be in the double-digit ABV range. Bottles are available to-go as well.

Service at the bar on a busy Sunday evening was good. the staff was patient and knowledgeable with our multiple sampler flights.

The Bruery doesn’t serve food but regularly have food trucks outside.

Overall I am happy to finally get to visit this place. The quality and variety were pretty much all you could ask for at a brewer’s tasting room.
