VIsited this place on a Sunday afternoon in early March. It was very tough to find, hidden in an old business park. It’s basically a small warehouse with their brewing equipment sectioned off from the tasting room. It reminds me of a winery tasting room actually. Not much seating, just a few barrels sitting around for setting down your beer. There was a very large screen TV where I watched the end of the US vs. Canada gold medal hockey game. Very cool. The beer was very good. They only had five on tap at the time, which was a little disappointing, but I bought a couple of bottles of stuff you can’t get anywhere else, so I was happy. The bar staff was a little cold to me, but I think it was because there were mostly regulars there that they were catering to. Either way, the beer was good, the vibe was good, I just wish it was a little more comfortable. I only stayed for about an hour.

I love how most of their Beer doesn’t really feel like you have had it somewhere else for the most part.I’ve met some great friendly people from this brewery, and Sunday are great 25% off.There a projector for the sports games and a dart board.There’s usually a couple barrels where you can place your beer or on the bar.

The Bruery is one of my favorite places to go. Its only about 30 minutes from me. The beers are fantastic and the people are really cool. There are always people that bring cool bottles to share with others. As of lately they have really cool food trucks that come prepare food.

Nice little place. They change taps a LOT from what I read and on a busy weekend they can blow up to four. Pay it Forward is an awesome feature, and drafts are only four bones. Comfy little tasting room - reminds me a lot of Lost Abbey. Sometimes the Kogi truck is there which is SUCH a bonus. The people are sweet. Patrick Rue will answer questions from across the rope and the bar staff happily doles out pre-purchases even on an ass-busy night. A nice stop if you’re in the area or of course for a release.

One of my favorite places to drink for sure. A nice rustic setting inside a otherwise grim OC business parkway. When not crowded, you can take in the whole ambiance. You smell Co2 and hops coming from the blow off, spent grain and candi sugar all over the place. Chill ipod play list, and folks sincerely interested in the beer in their hand. No real seating, you could sit at the small bar, or gather around a wooden barrel with your party. Steph, Brian, and the rest of the crew, including head brewer Tyler are prompt, polite, and you couldn’t ask anything more than that. The selection most of the time rocks, unless they kick a keg you’ve been dying to try. You also get to try beers that most of the world wish they could get on tap. The prices are great for premium craft beer for both glass and growler. I will note their bottled offerings are slightly more expensive than their retail counterparts. Makes sense not to undercut your retailers! Overall, a great place to have a beer.

It really doesn’t get better than this for drinking Bruery beers. The layout is pretty sparse, but you’re in the middle of their brewing area. They serve from multiple taps at great prices. Food usually is N/A, but they often have trucks that visit including the Fry Truck and the Kogi BBQ truck. Highly recommended. In fact I’m going tonight for beer + Kogi.

I had been hearing about this place and seeing their beers for sale occasionally and became curious. I went here for the first time a few weeks ago with a friend. The atmosphere is pretty nice, I think it’s kinda neat that the tasting room is also the brewing area. They only have a limited number on tap (5 or 6) but still enjoyed my time there. We both bought a flight of 5 different beers and we were allowed to keep the tulip glass for only $8. A great deal. People seem really nice and prompt. Had a few more then left with a growler. All in all a fun little place, I will definitely return here more often, but probably just for a quick pint and pop out with a growler fill.

Warehouse without the chic. Could use a bit more seating. Service is usually good and well informed. Awesome selection of draft only and the occasional bottle. Had Black Tuesday on draft. Even without stimulus sunday deal, prices are good

Bman1113vr took me here. This place was pretty busy on the Saturday afternoon I went. Tons of beer aging in all types of bottles. Talked with the head of marketing there, extremely nice guy and knew beer pretty damn well. Would love to come back here.
