There are some place that I have to go to a few times...to at least get a feel for the place before I make a judgement about it. This is one of those places.

Atmosphere: Descent-vibe, but a little up-scale to just go there and enjoy a beer.

Quality: Up-scale and very nice.

Selection: Okay selection with about 6 to 8 Schmid's brewed beers on-tap. Typical beers like IPA, Stout, Hefe and so on.

Food: Very tasty. A little over-priced.

Value: Pricey

Overall: Not the first place I think of going to...but they do brew descent and good quality beer. A nice change of pace is the best way to describe this place. You won't be disappointed, but you won't leave the place overly excited.

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 ; )

JT's is the best place for beers in Anaheim. If that means anything.

They were the only brewery in the are where all the beers were drinkable, even order-able.

Atmosphere is sports bar meets brewery meets restaurant. With a good mix. Fun for an Angels (and I am sure Ducks) game, but subdued for an afternoon happy hour. There are a dozen or so TVs, so you can see one in every seat, but also few enough to ignore them. They turn on a 80s90s mix of music when there are not local games on.

Great patio, not too much sun or shade. Small bar in courtyard when they are busy.

The main bar in the center seats about 35, so it is fun. There is power at the end closest to the fermenters, so you can plug in your computer; and they have free wireless.

Food is typical pub trying to be more then a pub-fare.

I very much like this place, very comfortable at the bar. Just about perfect for the area.

Another brew pub that I stopped by after spending a day at Disneyland. About a 15 minute drive. I made sure there were no sporting events going on as it is located right across from a sporting venue. 6 beers on tap. Nothing too memorable with a Honey Ale as their seasonal - at winter time too. Food was fine...I just ordered a burger. Service was good, but then again, when I was there, they were not very busy at all. I could see, maybe, coming here before a Hockey Game, but not really going out of my way to make it here.
