This is a very tiny brewery near the DMV in Fullerton. When I arrived, I was the only one in the tasting room. Aaron, the owner/brewer, handed me sample after sample, all free. They had everything from an APA to a lambic, to a smoked wheat to a foreign stout w/ chipotles. It’s small, informal, and the folks are very nice. I enjoyed the beers.
One of my go-to stops. Aaron and Patricia are fantastic hosts, very generous, and very friendly. They typically have a ton of different house beers on tap and are always experimenting with new recipes. Great prices and good beers, too.
Visited during RBSG. What cool, unsuspecting, unsuspecting place run by an awesome husband and wife team. Tight space wedged into the brewing facility, but the tap list was immense and everything was solid. Looking forward to seeing them grow.
Been dozens of times since they opened, including before they had a license to sell beers in the brewery (when they gave out free samples). Aaron and Patricia have always been super nice and accomodating to us and even gave us a ton of free beer for RBSG.
The tasting room is pretty small and can get pretty crowded but they are in the process of opening the new one so that’ll help matters. Always a food truck outside and music playing. Pints, half pints, and tasters are available on almost everything.
I think their strong suits are hoppy beers and their porters/stouts. Have mixed feelings on their sours. Their barrel aged Golden Chaos is pretty good too when fresh.

What a fun mistake I made. I had the tasting room hours for the Bruery mixed up, and still needed a growler fix while in the neighborhood. The place was just a small garage with seemingly a lot going on. No rustic tap room vibe though. Patricia is amazingly awesome and efficient. Maybe too much actually. She was handing me sample after sample,before I could finish savoring one. Can’t fault the gal for keeping a thirsty man happy. It was neat seeing her rapidly handling multiple customers by herself. For such a small joint, they had a lot on tap to choose from. Something for everyone too. The value was great, as they can’t charge for samples yet. Overall, this brewery is vastly underrated. The beer is awesome and so is the small staff. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
Another stop on the RBSG bus tour. You can walk in and get tasters or pints right inside the brewery. Sort of like the Lost Abbey set up but 100x more dirty, grimy, right in the thick of the brewing process stepping over hoses and getting sprayed with sanitizer. Tap list was very large. Way more than 8 taps. More like 20. House beers were all very good. Very reasonably priced growler fills and bottles to go. They are moving very soon to a new location so be careful before you plan your trip.
Visited during RBSG. Nice owners that treated us to good beer (including a taste of Imperial Phoenix before the release). Got a free pint glass as well. Only their own beers on tap but the ones I tried were all good.
