stopped in on a Sunday for a tasting. very small brewery with the tasting room next to the tanks and in between barrels. really nice setting. you canít beat drinking world class beer being surrounded by barrels full of Black Tuesday. get there early, b/c a line forms and the place gets packed. they offer a beer flight of 5 beers - your choice and you keep the snifter glass. getting your next beer was a challenge though with only 2 people behind the bar and a long line. great beer, great vibe, must stop if in the OC or LA area.

Serious craft brewing has arrived in Orange County. The Bruery is producing adventurous variations on beer styles from Germany, Belgium, France and even Denmark! Sophisticated brews, served in appropriate glassware, contrast with a spartan but clean industrial setting. I loved the aroma of oak barrels stacked on shelving near the tasting area. I wish I could report that I loved the beer. Interesting, yes, but not something Iíd want to take home in one of the available growlers. The Saison De Lente and 7 Grain Saison had a bitter finish that I found unpleasant. The Salt Of The Earth, a gose variation, was for me over the top in brine. The Rugbrod, billed as a Julebryg-style strong brown ale was more to my liking, but unremarkable to my humble taste buds. But hey, what the hell do I know? This place was full of beer lovers who were enthusiastically buying bottles and growlers. The patrons were mostly standing, however, as there are only about a half dozen bar stools in the whole place. This is not a tasting area set up for an evening of kibitzing with friends. Detailed information on featured beers is cheerfully dispensed by the bartenders who not only know what theyíre pulling from the taps (11 of them running on the day of my visit) but are steeped in beer culture as well. I came away from the Bruery feeling that I had finally discovered a place in Orange County where artisans are striving to craft beers of the highest quality.

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 thatís 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.

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.

A cool bar stuck in the middle of the production floor with a bunch of barrels stacked up to the right. Several taps and some available in bottles also.

Your standard warehouse location of the brewery, but once inside this is different with all the barrels stacked against one wall - just watching the barrels and thinking of the beers maturing makes your teeth water. But then hit the bar that is set right next to the brewery and you can taste some of the delights before buying some to extend the enjoyment of the visit. JohnC helped us get in on an otherwise closed Monday - thanks. I would have hated to miss this.

A tasting room in a brewery, it doesnít get much better than that. A few tables, barrels and chairs. A great drinking environment for a beer lover. Iíll be back when in the area.
