I randomly picked a date that they had a special release to make my first visit, thus it was packed.

This place is located in Anaheim near the Bruery in an industrial park like area. Plenty of street parking. Once I got inside, it was nicely done. There was a tasting area to the left side after entering the front entrance and the back brewing area was visible for the patrons. I like seeing breweries showcase their brewing equipment and capacity.

Next time, I'll pick a date that's more laid back, so I can enjoy my visit and taste more beers.

Awesome place, well decorated in vintage futuristic space/science theme. Great beer, awesome food trucks, friendly and quick service. Not a big selection of take out bottles. Cheers!

OK. I will admit that this is my home brewery. I have never received bad service nor have I had a bad beer here. Their Stasis Project beers constantly blow my mind.

Very easy to visit the Bruery, Noble Ale Works and this place in succession as I did and I'm sure there are other breweries that could have also been in the mix.

I was able to order a few small tasters to try some of their standard beers and they're cool, although I'm guilty of wishing there had been a few stouts, bigger beers and rarities available.

The space itself was pretty damn tiny but it felt cozy and people were enjoying themselves on what was New Year's Eve.

This place makes some legitimately amazing beers. Everything I had on tap was incredibly delicious, and the staff was very friendly. Definitely glad I made it a stop on my vacation.

I went there on the day of a bottle release. So, this review probably reflects that. The selection was fabulous, because they had many extras on tap. Good food trucks out front. Service was decent, but hampered by the number of people. Would love to drop in on a less crazy day.

I was blown away by how good this brewery is. We toured a few breweries in the area and this took the cake. Such a great selection, cool vibe, and some high quality beers. They had Star Wars themed beers at the time I went, which may sound gimmicky, but they were insanely good. Just shows that they keep things interesting and are having fun. And yes, there are "whale" beers to be had a well. Red Eye November was amazing. If you're in a 50 mile radius, go there immediately.

Visited here with my buddy before the Red Wings - Ducks game this past Sunday.

Vibe was OK - - a decent amount of seating inside that probably held 40 or so.

Quality is solid - love the Belgians and the IPAs were very smackable.

Service was very good. I believe the owners/brewers served us and they made for some nice conversation. Very friendly and very open to all my annoying questions.

Selection was solid. I believe there were at least four belgians and four ipas as well as some stouts to choose from.

As an aside there was a food truck parked out front that made some very tasty street tacos. You put your order in outside and they bring it into the tasting room for you - was definitely appreciated! If my buddy and i go back for more Red Wings hockey next year we both agreed that we would come here again!

Super chill on the Sat Night (just before Christmas) we showed up at 11:00PM and closed the place down. There were only 3-4 people there other than us plus a group of 5-6 people in the back getting a tour. We had Darkstar November which was a definite highlight. Wished they had more bottles to go but they had 5-6 nice beers on tap. Waitstaff was really nice (although we had their full attention). Very clean place with cool mens bathroom.

Bottle Logic is pretty accessible to OC freeways, though it is tucked away on an industrial side street. Inside the tasting room, it's clean with a cool steam-punk theme. The staff is friendly and there's a relatively diverse selection of in house beers available. While Bottle Logic makes a range of beers, their stouts are their forte.

I visited Bottle Logic this weekend while down in Anaheim for a convention, and I quite liked the place. It's new and clean and attractive inside, with a cool science theme and bookshelves and electrical equipment adorning the walls. There were a dozen or so beers on tap, and I had a flight to try some of their flagship selections. They definitely try to do some interesting things there, although I found their lighter-alcohol offerings to be among their best. Service was good; one cool thing they have is a chalkboard indicating what's in the fermenters so you know what is going to be available coming up soon. I dig it; I would encourage other brewers to do this as well. Definitely worth checking this place out.

Friendly staff, interesting decor, and certainly a unique vibe. Happy was able to stop here on vacation and look forward to trying some more of their beers in the future.

Tucked away between business buildings in Anaheim lies Bottle Logic. Its a low key spot with a small outdoor area right up front. As you enter, you will see tables/seating to both your right and left hand side. The main bar will be at the back left when you enter the door. There's also a big giant back area. Food trucks are here which seems to be on a daily basis so you shouldn't have to worry about getting food while you drink delicious BL beers. They have a nice selection and luckily the last time I was here I got to enjoy FO.

Keep a waaay open mind on this brewery. Foresight and planning are rare commodities with nascent breweries but BL is showing a real affinity for barrel aging. Darkstar November was a tasty RIS right out of the barrel. Their array of ba vanilla stouts each matured in a different whiskey and unveiled at BL's one year anniversary in 2015 showed great promise. The grapefruit APA is one of the tastier citrus style APAs I've sampled. Great promise with this one. And, oh yeah, their A/C gets a 4.5, maybe a 5 in August.

Went there on a Saturday night after The Bruery closed down their tasting room for the night (Bottle Logic is open two more hours!). Inside the tasting room was clean and well constructed. For being a fairly new brewery, they certainly were well funded. The beers were overall tasty and I had the pleasure of tasting all thirteen they had on tap that night. I'd go back again to see what other offerings they had; though there are some other options that are more appealing in the area.

First time visit. Nice interior decor and quite a bit of seating as compared to other tasting rooms I've been in. Very helpful/knowledgeable staff who was going the extra mile to make everyone happy. The tasting flight is their regular tap offerings which were all solid, including a Saison that I thought was pretty damn good for a style I rarely seek out. Their bottled offerings mirrored the tap offerings. They had some other brews on tap as well and you can taste, get a full pour or a growler fill. Too bad some of their other brews were not available, but that happens everywhere and makes you want to come back again. Food truck out front too just in case you feel the need.

Prices are reasonable and the brews are rock solid. I would recommend visiting this place to anyone.

Parking was easy, nice and clean inside. Food truck outside. Each beer on tap came with detailed information about its creation which is great while you are tasting.

Went to check this place out yesterday and I was pretty impressed. The tasting room looks awesome. There's a good view of the brewing area and you're surrounded by old electrical equipment and the pulp novel style posters that they use as their labels. The staff was very helpful and friendly and I really enjoyed talking to them about their upcoming releases and plans for expansion down to my area, San Diego, which is hopefully going to happen soon. As far as the beers themselves go, I wouldn't say any of them blew me away, but they were all pretty solid. The standouts for me were She Shot First and Recursion 2.0. Overall, this place is a good time and definitely worth checking out.

I decided to stop in here after The Bruery Sucreversary event. The tasting tasting room is up front and the brewing equipment is in the back. There is a small bar with some stools along with some tables and booths/chairs around the perimeter of the tasting room. They had 12 beers on tap when I went. One of the beers (Revenge Of The Nerds) was a special creation on tap that I actually missed at The Bruery event. There was a pretty good variety of styles represented. Service from multiple staff members was good even though it got quite busy when I was there. Prices were reasonable with tasters running around $2.00 to $3 each and pints for around $5 and up. Overall, this is a nice spot with a clean, modern tasting room that I would definitely recommend checking out if you are in the area.

Does the CA-57 corridor have room for one more brewery. Bottle Logic seems to think so. And after one visit, I'm agreeing with them. This section of Anaheim is boring, filled with a bunch of industrial buildings....ok, so there's a bowling alley, miniature golf, and a strip club nearby, but in general it's boring. How to attract people outside the 9 to 5...bring a brewery to the scene.

Sizeable interior, seating for perhaps 40 people plus additional tables outside. The bar is large with room to wiggle around. Even at 5pm, Bottle Logic was rocking with people (perhaps three-fourths full). Helping add to the experience was the atmosphere's fusion between 1940's and modern design. Inside is very clean, and just on the other side of the tasting room is the production brewery which is visible through the window.

Although there were 10 beers on-tap, behind the bar was additional room for more taps, hinting that more variety may come someday. 10 is fine though, as half are mainstays (hoppy wheat, porter, pilsner, saison, Double IPA) while the other half rotates (i.e. coffee coconut pale ale, IPA, chile sweet stout). Full pours start at $5.50, and tasting flights can be purchased as well. I was lucky enough to sample six of Bottle Logic's creations, all good to very good beers. Regarding glassware, Bottle Logic uses branded chalices and pint glasses which look like beakers.

Staff was not only plenty, but very helpful to get you acquainted to their beers. I even received a water cup without asking for one. The people of Bottle Logic did well to make me feel welcome, and along with a fun atmosphere and good beer, a second visit will be coming sooner rather than later.

A: Very cool it was a mixture of modern with some 50's thrown in.

Q: Everything was clean and the layout of the tasting room was awesome.

Ser: Nothing to complain about. The people were nice. That's about it.

Sel: They had 6 taps and one cask. I wouldn't expect anything more for a brewery that young.

V: Everything was very reasonably priced.

Location:

The brewery is located in an industrial park between the 57 and 55 freeways, just north of the 91 in Anaheim. Because its location does not allow for much drive-by visibility, most the frequenters will have sought it out specifically. What does that mean? Well, if you are at Bottle Logic Brewing it’s because you meant to be there and so did everyone else around you. Their non-mainstream location allows for microbrew enthusiasts to enjoy their wares without the hubbub of the bar crowd.

Comfort & Décor:

Clean and simple – Bottle Logic keeps to their scientific motif without overwhelming the eye. Blue-gray walls are complimented by their signature orange accents, lacquered wood, various metals, and retro filament light bulbs. Chalkboards proclaim the day’s tap list and prices and large scale prints of their brewing labels and associated art adorn the walls. The taproom has an attached patio for patrons to enjoy their beverages on, which is impressive considering their warehouse-esque location. More importantly, the taproom is wonderfully air-conditioned. My absolute favorite decorations were the beer barrel tables made by their very own Brandon Buckner (founder & brand manager).

Brews:

She Shot First – A pale wheat ale at 5.4% ABV. The label artwork is a tribute to pulp science fiction and strong heroines. Think Rosie the Riveter playing Han Solo.

Citra Randall – Variant of the She Shot First, but filtered through citra hops. The citra hops cut the typical skunk of the hops and instead left an orange peel finish.

Tattered Prince – A 7% ABV French style saison named as a homage to Nikola Tesla. It always makes me so happy to find a saison on tap. Herbal and fruity without being sweet, this tickled my taste buds. Lightly bitter hops on the back with a quiet finish.

Double Actuator – A double IPA with an ABV of 9%. I’m not a huge IPA lover, but I can tell you the hop flavor was strong with fruit-forward citrus.

Double Actuator on Cask – Same brew but the hops mellowed and lost some of their bitterness while leaving the flavor of the beer in the forefront. While not as cold and certainly not effervescent, the cask tapped Double Actuator was my personal preference between the outputs of the DIPA.

Mother Heifer – A milk stout at 5.5% ABV brewed with lactose and sugar. A more traditional stout with a fuller body than the Leche Mole, this was a richer drink with a smooth finish.

Leche Mole – This 5.5% ABV Mexican style milk stout was a party in my mouth! It was light for a stout in terms of weight. I felt like I was drinking the beer instead of eating it (if you’ve had a stout, you know what I mean). You immediately taste the chocolate and light cinnamon, then chile spice mixes with the carbonation to delight your tongue. It was like a mix of Abuelita’s hot chocolate, with espresso and Serrano chiles – I hope it’s on tap rotation the next time I go.

Staff:

While their staff was ridiculously busy for their grand opening, everyone was grinning ear to ear. Much of the day’s staff was family and friends there to support the Bottle Logic Brewing launch. I briefly met the founders Brandon Buckner (Brand Manager), Wes Parker (Brewmaster) and Steve Napolitano (President). You could tell how proud they were.

Marketing

The very first thing I noticed about Bottle Logic was how much love and effort went into their branding. Everything had a splash of their bold orange. Even the masher and kettles were labeled accordingly. Their kegs were embossed with their brewery’s name and every staff member was wearing a Bottle Logic Brewing shirt or sporting their color scheme: bold orange on navy blue or brown. The branding was so thoroughly reinforced, that I think I will always have a thought of Bottle Logic when I see a pop or orange like that. Brilliant!

Entertainment & Events

Books line the shelves of a laboratory inspired seating area within the taproom. Grab a beer and read at your leisure. While music does play overhead, when it’s busy it’s hard to hear it. I’m not sure yet if they intend to invite local musicians to play, but they do have the room for it – I could foresee some live music on the patio.

Recommendation

I can’t wait to see what will become of Bottle Logic Brewing once their find their stride. For a start, I think they did well, but I look forward to revisiting in the coming months to see what they decide to be. What other brews will end up on rotation? What events will they hold? Will there be live entertainment? Who will be their next brew inspiration? I shall wait in blissful anticipation for what comes next with Bottle Logic Brewing. Experiencing a brewery from the start it a rarity and I encourage you to see how Bottle Logic matures over the coming year. Check them out – They worked hard on this.
