The Bruery's tasting room is located in an industrial area in Placentia. The tasting room is actually in the brewery so you are surrounded by fermentation tanks and barrels of aging brew. This is actually pretty cool.

They were pouring 5 beers when I was there. You can get 5 two-ounce tasters for $8 plus you get to keep the glass. They also sell 12 oz pours of any of their beers for $5-6. They also have growlers but only a few of the beers were available for growler fills.

The servers were very friendly and definitely knew their stuff. There is no food.

It's definitely worth a stop, especially if you love The Bruery's beers.

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.

One of the best breweries I've been to. Very nice tasting room with games, good system for keeping track of the tasters, fun tour and of course the beers! HIGHLY recommended
