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! (1,466 characters)

Really fair prices $1-3 tasters with a good pour. Meet a guy on the highest reserve society they have and got to try alot of rare gems. Signed up for the 20 min tour. It was really cool to see how they did work and the history of the place. Bought a Growler of smoking woods coffee was a great day and will be back! (315 characters)

The Bruery has great beer and was expected to be the highlight of our west coast brewery tours, but unless you are a society member there isn't much to choose from. There were 4 variants of smoking wood - I didn't like that beer once...still glad we made the trek, but would skip it next time. (294 characters)

The Bruery's tasting room is pretty legit inside. A few years ago the tasting room went from being somewhat ad hoc inside the brewing room to an actual air conditioned, dedicated space. The Bruery also added a pilot system to test out new ideas. The Bruery has always had a robust tap list, but now with the pilot system in place, the Bruery has even further expanded its offerings.

The Bruery’s tasting room is not without its faults though. Perhaps the biggest tasting room drawback is the amount of people. While the tasting room is in a nondescript, out of the way location and at times zero food options (when there isn’t an available food truck), it does not stop the place from getting packed. Once the place is packed, finding a seat can be difficult and getting a beer can be even more of a challenge. (821 characters)

Visited on a May Saturday afternoon. The tasting room was full of people and energy. Tours were given on the hour, but I missed the last one. Awesome selection of beers on tap and in bottles. Prices for tasting sized glasses were very cheap and generous. Amazing variety, originality and quality of beers. No food, which was the only negative. Do yourself a favor--go! (375 characters)
