I've been here about 10 times since my first visit in May '10. Just a mile or so northeast of the 5/Euclid, and being not that far from The Bruery makes this a common 2nd stop for me when I'm up there.

The location is quite small, in an industrial district a stone's throw from the Fullerton train tracks. The tasting room is located right in the brewery itself, with tanks and brewing equipment everywhere.

The majority of the time, Leo is the one working there, jovial and always willing to talk about the beer in hand. The standard house beers are solid, but I really like the sour experimentation they do, lots of test batches which are fun to try out. Certainly a good stop in the area, especially with easily the cheapest sour prices around.

Never judge a book by its cover.

Ive never been a huge fan of Bootlegger's label artwork. Cant say why, really. It just sort of seemed cartoony which made me question how serious the operation is. When I went to visit, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that my suspicions couldnt have been more off. Great selection, friendly staff and good beer. I had about 8 tasters in a variety of styles and not one was bad. The tasting room can get a wee bit crowded on Friday/Saturday nights but if youre in the area, give them a go!

A summer night feel with the beer selection and outdoor seating. Cornhole is always fun and there's a good pizza place next door that delivers over.

They usually have a very good selection, super nice barbacks. The beer just lacks sometimes.
