vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4

A: Came in on a Saturday afternoon and wasn't too busy...probably 10 to 15 people. The music low, but easy to hear and they were playing the UConn vs. Villinova game...which I might add, was awesome! Didn't find too many young people there either, but either way... I digged the vibe. A great place for beer geeks!

Q: Typcial of any good brewery...served their beer in the appropriate glassware and at a good temperature.

S: Attentive, quick, and knowledgeable...again, typical of any good brewery.

F: Didn't have any that I know of.

Overall: I was a little skeptical, but was really suprised by everything this brewery had to offer. Definitely a place to visit if any of you guys are in the OC. Cheers!

Service only gets a 3.5 because the place is too small. It's always busy and they could easily fill a room 3 times as big.

Amazing selection, tons of beer on tap. Always a food truck parked outside.

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.
