Pretty bare bones industrial park deal. Kinda dark inside (nighttime) and not in a cozy, romantic way, more of a dingy, gloomy, poorly lit thing going on. Something like ten taps (one nitro). When I was there only one guy was pouring so even though it wasn't crowded, it still took a minute to get a beer. Standard wall 'o' tshirts, nothing special design-wise in the space. No food, all they had was some beef jerky.

Only time will tell what the long term effects of Evan Price leaving will be. That being said, out of the ten taps there are always a few good beers to be had... Naughty Sauce if you're lucky.

Relatively small brewery in an industrial space, with a modestly done wooden bar and 21 beers on tap. Nifty also-wooden taplist display behind the bar, and a couple tables or counters right up against the brewhouse proper to enjoy your purchase. They do have a small "express bar" in the brewhouse, but it was closed during our visit.

This place was absolutely packed, and rightfully so - the beer on the whole is great! I Love It, Nose Candy, Naughty Sauce and Showers are all legit. The flight "paddles" are pretty slick too, with your glasses suspended over the beer notes printout.

Service was okay; it was incredibly busy and we were there until close so no time to chat the beer up with staff. Also a sensory overload with a ton of fashion-forward hipsters, so fantastic people watching (and interesting conversations to be had!).

We cabbed here, but this is right on a ginormous parking lot, FYI. Well worth a stop through.

Good amount of beer options, and mostly world class as far as I am concerned. Good amount of parking makes it easy. Definitely gets crowded, especially before Angels games, and is not the roomiest of places. Cheers!

Noble Ale Works is located in an industrial park in Anaheim just a stone throws away from Anaheim Stadium. Plenty of parking.

There's a small tasting room right as you enter, with the counter and tap list above. There was another drinking area to the right though it seems they close that area during production.

They brew solid beers. I had a new variant of their Showers Double IPA series. It was pretty good. The tasters are priced nicely.

I usually go here during the afternoons when there is not an event happening nearby. This is a place that you do not want to go to if you are claustrophobic. I understand that they are expanding and I am looking forward to seeing what happens with that. I might make more appearances here.

Visited after The Bruery and Bottle Logic.

Was glad they had flights available and at a reasonable price. Some cools beers were available including Citra Showers and Naughty Sauce. They also had a malt liquor on tap which was good and pretty cool to find. It had a great name too: Six Four Impala.

We hung out in what was essentially part of the brewing area with my daughter and felt comfortable which is always a plus.

Bottles to go was another plus.
