Visited maybe a dozen times over the years. I was going to copy over the rant that I went on when I reviewed this on another site where I complained about the awful service (slow, rude, and padding the bill) but since then things have gotten better. Still not great but much better.

The beers range from bad to good with most falling in decent territory. They do hops well, they’ve made one or two good sours and saisons, but I dont like their stouts for the most part and the casks are usually pretty bad. They also do a lot of experimental stuff.

Food is just alright, the prices are high, but over all it’s a fun place to be with some good beers on the menu.

It was packed inside, so we chose to sit out on the patio. The inside is your fairly typical brewpub type setup with lots of TVs, a long bar, and a pretty decent sized seating area. The decor is fairly classy, I guess, for what you’d expect from a brewpub. That said, it is Tustin. The house beer list is not huge, but they do have some very nice guest taps, including Pliny, Blind Pig, Racer X, Hop 15, and some others that I can’t recall. They also had a handful of their own beers on tap. The food is, for the most part, your typical bar food, but pretty tasty. I enjoyed the Teryaki burger and was quite pleased with it. The service was very good, especially considering how packed the place was. The only bummer was that their house beers are not the greatest, but still decent beers to sit down and enjoy with some friends. And, I’d much rather come here than go to BJ’s, for example. It’s not necessarily a destination, but a nice little spot to pop into.

Very quaint brewpub with a Pizza Port like feel although the bar area felt very cramped. Did not eat here. Beer selection was small, but focused on their house beers. House beer quality was decent. Some were not so great. Ambiance is very inviting, kid friendly, relaxing, casual. Patio seating available. Staff was friendly.

Nice ambiance. Had a nice cask in top condition ale, though a few of their beer were not so great. Some of the guests looked better, though I wanted to try their beers. Pretty nice brewpub that’s worth a stop.

Stopped by. Nice place. Crowded parking. Very solid beers across the board. Sat at the bar and did not try the food. 1 Cask, several taps and a knowledgeable bar tender. Guest taps needed work. Spoke with the very friendly brewmaster about homebrewing for a long time. Very nice guy, who makes some very good hoppy beers. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

Another mall like location. Big place, sat outside and enjoyed the weather. Sampled just the beers - 8 different were on tap of good quality. Swift service.

Large brewpub with nice restaurant/sports bar feel. Only 7 house beers on tap and 3 average guest beers. Food was decent bar food. Worth a stop but there are plenty of other options in OC I would go to first.

A nice big bar that sits facing the tanks, plenty of seating in the restaurant. I was there on a Sat, so it was plenty noisy with different college football games playing. Above average beers, solid and easy drinking. 10 house beers and 6 guest taps ( 3 were RR). A small fridge with a small selection of bottles.

Visited during RBSG. GT2 keeps beating me to the adjectives I was going to use! This place is, indeed, QUAINT. A chill local haunt that I would frequent if I lived in the area, but the beers have a ways to go. Kind service.
