This brewery bar is part of the revitalization of downtown Anaheim, one of the oldest municipalities in Orange County. The owners took a gutted building that was once a Packard dealership and created their modern day vision of the original Anaheim Brewery circa 1870.

That said, it's a pretty cool place to drink beer, the centerpiece being a classic wooden long bar from where the breweries initial offerings are poured. Visited on the second weekend the brewery was open and the place was packed. No food at this point and unsure whether grub is in the future plans.

Not surprisingly, the first group of beers are relatively basic. A hefe, a malty amber, pale ale, and a hoppy pale ale that was too smooth to be an IPA. In keeping with the turn of the century theme, they seem to be going for classic recipes, classic tastes. I tried the amber, called Anaheim Red, and the pale ale, named Anaheim Gold. They were both decent efforts but lacked dominant flavors, which is my polite way of saying bland. But then, I'm a beer drink who enjoys aggressive taste. However, it was only the second weekend for this new brewery and newer, interesting beers are likely to emerge.

Another area that will probably develop with time is the 'German Beer Garden,' which at this point consists of a few rows of picnic tables set on dirt next to the parking lot, roped off by mesh fence. Considering the care that went into the tasting room interior, it seems likely they'll get around to making this area more hospitable. In any case, it was nice on a warm summer evening to carry our beers outside and soak in the downtown atmosphere.
