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.
Visited the brewery on IPA Day 2011. Small tasting room inside the brewery with a handful of taps. They got quite busy and the place was pretty crowded. Like most breweries in So Cal has some barrels aging deliciousness along the walls. I got a flight which turned out to be a hassle as the line was very long and I had to wait in between each brew. Food trucks outside in case you get hungry.
thurs-sun you can go to the brewery and drink their beer. really great atmosphere and people really enjoy it. on friday before 6 it wasn’t too busy but after 6 it was really busy and the line moved very slowly. There is always a different food truck outside so there is great food. Staff is friendly and they let you bring your own bottles so there is normally a bottle share in Thursday and Friday afternoons.
A tiny little brewery in an business park. Very welcoming if you show up on a tasting day. You have to walk around the equipment and puddles on the floor from recent brews. These are down to earth people who love beer and want to talk about it and their new brewing adventure. The head brewer even poured us a few experimental beers that he’s working on - a java chipotle stout and a plum ale. And they didn’t charge us a cent! Sad to see that bottles weren’t available there, only growlers - and you had to buy your own.
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.

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.
Small place, good beers, I loved the black phoinex, stop by if get chance.

Good place to hang out and sample their beers. Having Knuckle Sandwich & Black Phoenix available is always a nice combo. Too bad they don’t have more room and put out the chairs but at least there is usually a food truck there with some good grub.
Kudos to these guys and despite my 74 rating I highly recommend checking this place out. They have severe limitations where they are and they are a young up and coming brewery that could use, and deserves support.
They don’t really have a ’tap room’, more of a counter in the middle of this tiny brewery. They have about 8 taps all their own stuff or stuff they contract for others.
Really nice guys, some great beers, some good one and a few that need work.
I like the Knuckle Sandwich best and believe it or not the chocolate mint porter is not so bad.
