I was pretty pumped to return here after four years and see this new tasting room I kept hearing about. As soon as I opened the door I was blasted with a wall of noise from all of the people packed into the medium-small space. Atmosphere was solid I guess. Every single seat in the place is filled, people are standing at every available counter and enjoying their beers. Service was a bit up and down. I got lucky and the line died right as I wanted to get my beers so I didn't have any wait. The bartender was pretty nice and talked to me for a minute or so before someone else came up to order another beer. I found a small sliver of area right where people fill out their flight menus and made sure I left plenty of room for them, I guess that wasn't enough room for one of the other bartenders because he about ran over to me to tell me to move over. I moved the three extra inches over and that was apparently enough for him to leave me alone for then on. Quality was solid for everything I tried. Selection was huge, as it should be at a brewery that makes this many beers. I got a sampler so I got to try five of them, most were just ok but I did really like the one. Decided to leave after that as it was becoming even more packed, I am hoping to return again before we move on to give it a more detailed look. Prices were a touch high on some of the beers but they tended to be some of the more labor intensive ones so I can kind of understand that. Overall I still love the place, I hope we can stop in again in the coming days.

Visited the Bruery on a Saturday afternoon to have a flight and pick up a couple of bottles, ended going home with four at a lower cost than my local bottle shop. It's nice place to have a beer, very clean, modern looking, not too big. My only complaint was that the guy who took my payment and the flight server weren't too polite but hey they make great beer.

Visited The Bruery from Ohio when in SoCal on business. Previously have tasted Black Tuesday and Grey Monday so was excited to see what else there was. I was a little disappointed as the really great beers on tap where for their special society members. I don't like it when brewery's do this. Wife wanted a nice IPA but none on tap. Most of their beers are fermented with their house Belgian yeast so likely will not find other types of beers here.

Went to the Bruery last Spring and was pleasantly surprised! The only downside was the lack of a food truck that I had been told by my husband would be available. Their beers are heavy hitters and we hadn't eaten dinner, so the high ABVs hit us fast and hard! I highly recommend a visit, especially if you like a super selection of fantastic and tasty beers!

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.
