I've been here about 10 times since my first visit in May '10. Just a mile or so northeast of the 5/Euclid, and being not that far from The Bruery makes this a common 2nd stop for me when I'm up there.

The location is quite small, in an industrial district a stone's throw from the Fullerton train tracks. The tasting room is located right in the brewery itself, with tanks and brewing equipment everywhere.

The majority of the time, Leo is the one working there, jovial and always willing to talk about the beer in hand. The standard house beers are solid, but I really like the sour experimentation they do, lots of test batches which are fun to try out. Certainly a good stop in the area, especially with easily the cheapest sour prices around.

Stopped in to score Knuckle Sandwich IIPA in bottles but it was already gone. Had a few beers and I do enjoy their Black Phoenix. The seating inside is limited, outside seating is more expansive, and there was only one person working the bar. There wasn't many people there but it was early Saturday. I think they need put a little bit more into the scenery, I've been to establishments that are aesthetically pleasing. But the beer, atmosphere, and service are great. It's worth a visit.

Did a flight although missed out on the vaunted Knuckle Sandwich. Beers were good but not great. Taproom was in a garage with plenty of room but it was early. No food available that I knew of, service was satisfactory. Probably would go back but only to try Knuckle Sandwich as competition is fierce in Cali.

Bootleggers is definitely a cool place to hangout out and have a couple beers. In the last three weeks I've made a stop here about 4 or 5 times with friends. Really good selection of beers to choose from. Good service and friendly employees. Seating area is mostly outdoors since the benches inside usually get taken first. They have arcade games and a tv (usually showing sports) inside and oversized jenga outside. If you get hungry you can order for delivery from the pizza joint next door. It is also pet friendly so you can chill with your dog while you enjoy some nice beers. I can see myself being a regular here.

A little pricey, but otherwise a great time here. Mostly outdoor seating with benches which allows you to share your beer thoughts with others. Also, has a few outdoor games to entertain.

Hometown brewery.
They always have a multitude of choices pouring. Food trucks average 4 times a week. Cool games to play, especially the giant Jenga game. Staff is pretty chill. Some awesome hoppy offerings from the flagship Rustice Rye IPA to the famous Knuckle Sandwich DIPA. Other great ones include, Lupulin Thrill and Far Out IPAwhich are available on a rotating basis.
