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.

Outstanding Bruery! Fun and lively tour (thanks Josh your the best Brewery tour guide I've encountered), and I love the value I got here. Almost everyone was drinking flights of beer. Their bottles are rightfully expensive, but come here and you can sample 40 different taps all of there own beer. The tastings are 3 oz or so, and priced typically at $1 or $2, a few tastes are $3.50.

Very creative, beer, some things like the mole smoked porter I've never heard of before, but amazingly yummy! I wish i could come here more often. I came from WI, and this was my favorite brewery i visited in CA. That said I like sours and other big complex beers so this is right up my alley. They have the biggest collection of sours I've seen.

Also, they have a food truck there almost every night i believe, and you are allowed to bring food in from other local restaurants.

Top notch beer, service, food trucks. Really showcases what orange county brewing is headed towards. Staff is very knowledgeable about the craft. This place holds up with stone and all the best breweries, and in my opinion have hands down the most variety of sours in oc. I'm a reserve society member and they always have been super professional. If you like beer and haven't been here you're really doing yourself an injustice. Try it and see

The beers to go can sometimes be better but the tap list is superb. The food trucks are also hit and miss. Even with that said I always to mange to go here at least once a month. Definitely recommend.
