I have been here at least a dozen times now if not two dozen, days where I am the only person in there, others when dozens of homebrewers are doing their thing, and even holiday celebrations where the place is packed to the brim, I will start off by saying that Patrick is one of the most inviting and friendliest brewers you will ever meet, the brewery is located in a little industrial area right off the 57 Freeway, you walk in and are greeted by numerous oak barrels, the tasting room is right in the middle of the brewery, there are places to sit down other than at the bar, they serve some kind of nuts or pretzels at each table, you can order flights that are very fairly priced, the first Friday of every month, they have a special cask offering, and the majority of these have been outstanding, especially the Melange series, their St. Veronous celebration a few months back was amazing with chocolate salted waffles and their newest beers Cuvee Juene and White Zin, their beers are some of the most unique in the industry and they are only a year old, actually going to their first anniversary celebration tomorrow morning, this place is awesome and by far my favorite stop in all of Orange County and Los Angeles, there are many perks to this establishment and some are that I always bring a growler home, usually get to try a new beer every time, and get to talk beer with the staff, do yourself a favor and get out to The Bruery, you will not regret it!

While there is no doubt The Bruery produces a bevy of world class beers the somewhat pretentious vibe and reserve society program diminishes some of what I love about the microbrewery renaissance. What about the beer lover that travels to SoCal with The Bruery as a destination - are they supposed to join the Reserve Society to access special beers for one evening?

That being said, the broad range of beers available makes this a must stop for beer lovers. Almost any evening you will need to get in line to order, but this gives you time to peruse the draft list and pick 5 brews to sample. Note that some of these beers will almost certainly be available only at the tap room. In short a life list stop but not an especially cool place to hang.
