One of the more unique beer places I've ever been. It's part deli, part beer bar, and part beer store.
The left side of the store is a deli where they make many different types of sandwiches. I did not try the food. The back of the store is a bar with about 20 taps, all craft and all excellent selections. The right side of the store is an outstanding beer store with just about anything that you could possible be looking for. Definitely one of the better selections in Orange County.
This is a family run place with many generations of the family working side by side. They are all really nice and friendly. There is a TV showing sports and tons of Packers memorabilia.
The prices were very reasonable with a 17 oz pour of most domestic crafts being $6. More expensive stuff, such as St Bernardus Christmas, was $10 for a 12oz and $14 for a 17oz. It seems that their tap selection rotates often. When I was in there, it was a couple days after Christmas and a lot of their selection was holiday themed.
I would definitely recommend this place, it's outstanding. Keep in mind they are only open weekdays.

Been here many times and the beers on tap never disappoint. I've had everything from a goose island tap takover (which had 3 of the bourbon county beers), to special and limited Lagunitas releases such as the waldo beer. Also they reguraly have pliny and blind pig on tap which is always a nice surprise. I used to go there for the sandwiches also but the sandwiches are fairy expensive, about 7-10 dollars for a single and 14-20 bucks for a double (which is ridiculous) and that accompanied with a 6-12 dollar beer really adds up quick.
Overall its a great spot if you want awesome beer and pretty good sandwiches, just be ready to pay about 20 dollars for one single sandwich and one beer. Service is sub par but for me the beer they have make up for it. Would recommend.
