I've been coming here for quite some time (probably evidenced by all of my reviews), and I plan on continuing to do so.

This is yet another brewery that exists in a business park where you wouldn't really expect a brewery to exist. In this case, you're right next to the train tracks, just down the street from the Fullerton DMV.

You definitely get the feel that you're in the brewhouse itself, because you are. The mash and liquor tuns (as well as the kettle) off to your left with all of the fermenters in the back right. Straight ahead is the bar with the long list of beers available overhead.

These guys have tons of their beers on-tap at all times with new and creative stuff being brewed all the time. Of course, their most popular beer has become Knuckle Sandwich. I enjoy quite a few of their beers, but like anyone, they have a couple duds.

Aaron and his wife are very nice and hospitable people and are more than willing to chat with you or offer you samples if you're unsure about a beer.

The prices tend to be pretty cheap, especially for the samplers (I think it's $3.5 for 5 different 2 oz pours). Growlers and bottles are available for sale (to go), too.

Definitely worth a stop by and a couple beers, especially being just a couple miles down the street from the Bruery.

They usually have a very good selection, super nice barbacks. The beer just lacks sometimes.

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.
