Really spacious dining areas, private banquet room, and large outdoor patio dining area....well decorated with comfortable bar seating....13 TV's and a giant TV behind the bar that can be viewed from anywhere inside.
Typical upperclass food selections....a little pricy.
Stopped in for a beer before the Angel Baseball game and while busy, it wasn't overly crowded. Dropped in for another after the game and it was practically empty inside.
Large stainless fermentation tanks behind floor to ceiling glass wall on one side of the restaurant have the names of the beers they are holding on the outside so you don't need to see a menu to choose your beer.
Simple 5 or 6 beer selection of house brews with apparently no specials or seasonals being done.
Tried their IPA (named after the city - Anaheim IPA) and was really surprised with it's wonderful flavor, balance, and depth...so good I didn't sample any others but stuck with that beer all night. I'll have to return to try some of their others.
Service was good at the bar and the pint glasses were unusual and very comfortable. So much so, I bought one to take home with me.
No growler sales, however, which is a bummer. I would sure love to be able to take some of their IPA home with me as well.
Great place for before or after a baseball or hockey game.

This is right next to the Ayres hotel in Anaheim so I went there twice last over the weekend. The restaurant itself is nice with a clean look about it. It was pretty empty both times I went here.

I had the sliders the first time, and these were overly greasy. The second time I went I had the pizza and this was surprisingly good.

The beer is mediocre, which is better than I expected. They don't have a single guest tap, so you have no choice but to drink their beer.

The prices were reasonable.

The service here is terrible. The bartenders had horrible attitudes and seemed like incredibly miserable people. Servers would come up to the bar and talk shit about patrons at tables, not caring who overheard. Bartenders wouldn't make eye contact with patrons and would just walk away when people were ordering. It took forever to place orders and get the check both times. The day shift was bad and the night shift was bad, so apparently the theme of negativity is pervasive with the staff.

Definitely not a place to seek out.

Visited in 2009 to tick their beers and again in 2010 to try the Roggenbier. Both times I stopped in were during the day.

The place is pretty and clean. Really nice counter tops, and tables. Parking is a bitch. There are all of about 3 parking spots out front and everyone else gets to park in the dirt parking lot out back.

Servers are sparse and they dont know much about the beer, which isn't all that bad so long as the info is on the menu. But even when the servers do talk they dont say much, just "what can I get you?" and "that'll be $6."

Haven't tried the food yet, maybe some day I will. I'm imagine that this place fills up on game days as it's across from the Pond and down the street from the Angel's stadium.

This is usually my stop before an Angels game so I don't have to pay $12 for a corona at the game.

The place has a chain feel to it. From the waiters to the menu to pretty much everything about it. It is a chain. But I was just pointing out that it feels like one for sure. Food is pretty good but a little pricey but not too bad. The beer is just OK. Nothin to really say about it. Typical brew pub beers. Hefe, oat stout, ipa, pale, kolsh. Nothing interesting. I really wish there was something better to go to before the game. Maybe I will have to open something ; )
