This place is easy to miss if you are coming here the first time. It's buried among sea of faceless squared commercial buildings in Anaheim. But once you found it you have won't have trouble finding here the second time.
Very small tasting room compared to other notable OC breweries. Their beers are overall pretty good, and they do experiments on them extensively. They have all their bottled offerings in the coolers ready to go as well as doing growler & grumbler fills. Not much atmosphere to speak of but they do rotate their selections frequently so it earns its merit to come here periodically.

Stopped in before a Ducks game to check this place out. It's a typical small brewery setup in an industrial location. There was about 30 people enjoying their offerings when we got there. Seating is limited and I think was only one real table. I didn't have high expectations so I really didn't care about the seating, after all, I came here to check out the beer.

Their board showed 20 beers on tap with a nice variety that included a cask choice, Belgians, Strong Ales, Stouts of several varieties, Kolsch and yes-about 6 IPAs of different strengths and styles.

They sell most of their beers in your choice of 4oz, 12oz or 16oz. Some offerings are limited to 4oz. I like this way of doing it because it gives me the chance to sample without getting stuck with 16oz of swill.

Here is what we sampled: MathmTical IPA- golden light color, all hops, citrus,grapefruit and pine. Comes in at 7.5 Abv. I liked it-very good. I Love it IPA- similar to the first one and very good also. Citra Yum Yum Triple IPA- you can get this in a 4 or 12oz glass. It pours like a cloudy lemonade. Very hoppy on both ends and it's hard to tell its racking at 12.3 Abv! I really liked this one and I am glad I was careful and had the 4oz offering. The last ale we tried was the Naughty Sauce. It's a golden milk stout with coffee on nitro. Sounds like it's all over the board and doesn't know what it wants to be. I have to say that I was surprised how roasty it was and nitro did wonders for it.

They have different food trucks there each night so food is an option. Hop heads will approve. I liked their ales and I will return.

Huge sports presence which makes sense since they're near where the Angels play. Did a sampler and beers were good but not great. Place was full but still not congested. A nice neighborhood brewery to catch the game a have one after work. Not in the upper echelon yet.

Been looking to visit this place for some time. Located in a small industrial park, there's a lot of parking nearby that fools you into thinking that the tasting room is bigger than it is. Woefully small for the normal weekend crowd. Their beers are solid and there are at least 8 taps available plus bottled offerings. Their IPAs are well done and some of my favorites.

Eventually, they're gonna have to rethink their seating plan to help accommodate the crowds that show up on weekends. It's mostly standing room only after a while and even standing room is limited.

Overalll, their brews are worth tasting and the place worth visiting. Be prepared to stand due to the limited space. I'll be coming back but probably on a week day hoping the crowds will be less.
