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 in here for a beer sampler while down in SoCal in March. Pretty nice brewpub that seems a cut above average in terms of ambiance. The server was attentive and friendly. All the beers were very good with the hoppy ones standing out as excellent. The porter was really nice as well. They had some kind of vanilla impy stout that was disappointing, but overall I was impressed with this under the radar brewpub. Worth a stop.
21 may 2012. Came in at 3pm. It was pretty empty. 14 keg beers and one cask. Maybe 10-15 bottles. Taps were mostly Tustin brewing beers.

Nice, local brewery. Really coming around on their house beers. Always have some other nice craft options besides their own and nothing is horribly overpriced. The food is also good and the service nice. Drink local. (or trade for good local stuff)
Great little sportsbar/brewpub combo in OC. Compared to your standard chain restaurants in the nieghborhood, a WAY better choice. House beers are good, if a little outclassed by the Pliny/Blind Pig/Consecration/Mongo on guest, but all in all a fantastic place to kill a Sunday afternoon watching football with friends while waiting on a flight from SNA. Will return.
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.
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.
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.
