this was my 2nd time here. The first time was about a year after they opened. Good experience. Now its a little worked. Graffiti on bathroom tile and walls. That being said some good beer to be found here.

If you are at Disney and need a getaway catch a $5 uber and hit this spot. Great bartenders, solid beers, and and a super laid back atmosphere. My only complaint is that it’s not very big and has limited seating. But this is a beer nerd kind of spot.

Plus CROWLER. Do yourself a favor

And nitro cold brew that I took home in a crowler.

You’ll be happy you came here

Was extremely packed, but the Beer was good and the workers were awesome! Gonzo is really cool and bought me a beer and recommended near by breweries! I would go back for sure but would have to find a non peak day to do so.

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.

Orange Mocha Frappachino!

They had Zoolander references in the beers and a great lineup overall. Big fan of this place. Everything I tried was somewhere from good to awesome.

Nice little place. Only about a dozen beers on tap. Service was fast and friendly. Food truck outside with good eats. Flights were very reasonably priced. Good variety of beers, even though number of taps seemed limited.

I was a bit underwhelmed after being excited to visit for such a long time. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely worth visiting and there's a 0% chance of not being able to find a beer that you like. However, the selection isn't spectacular and there's not a ton of space. Definitely worth your time, but temper your expectations.

Second stop on my recent SoCal tour.

Vibe is industrial park on the outside, but busy yet pretty friendly on the inside.

Quality is good. I had the Citra Showers (good, but not great) and a pretty solid Irish Red.

Service was well above average. As mentioned above, the place was packed, but the girl that served was both friendly and quick.

Selection was pretty good. The place had about 12 beers on tap total with a pretty good variety.

Overall? A very worthy spot in Orange County. And pretty close to Angels Stadium and the Toyota Center. Well worth checking out, I'm glad I did.

Somewhat hidden in an industrial complex super close to the Angels Stadium and Ducks Arena. Super solid hoppy beers and milk/sweet stouts. Fast service, pretty diverse selection and usually a tasty food truck out front. However, the Brewery can get super busy on game and event days!!!

They're strength is obviously in their IPAs/DIPAs which were awesome on tap…Galaxy Showers, Citra Showers, I Love IT. This place was packed but only had a short line. They had a beer sampler which I imagine they won't be able to keep doing much longer due to popularity and the time required to provide these. Pretty diverse crowd which is always great to see. Not as clean and polished a place aesthetically as Bottle Logic but both are cool. We sampled their clear Stout which I'm trying to remember the name of but that was both weird and cool at the same time. Looking forward to going back soon but I live 400 miles away.

I visited Noble Ale Works on a bit of a lark on my recent trip to Anaheim and I was not at all disappointed. It's in an office/light-industrial park, but the atmosphere didn't suffer for that. They have seventeen taps of their beer available, and every one that I tried was a winner. Service was good and quick despite the place being hit by a brewery tour bus while I was there, and I absolutely look forward to returning the next time I'm in town.

visited 10-17-15 before the Foo Fighters at Honda Center. extremely close to the arena. perfect place for a pregame for Honda Center or the Big A.

was very crowded. Food truck outside was serving kabobs.

good selection of beer and friendly staff. tasting room is right next to the steel tanks. chairs are steel stools, I guess to match, but not very comfortable.

large tv screen showing college football. lots of parking.

wife and I had Big Whig, Galaxy Showers and Tongue Tickles, which were excellent.

Visited Noble Ale Works on a Saturday afternoon to have a few beers. There was not too many people which left plenty of seating, you are right next to the tanks in the tasting area, reminds me of The Lost Abbey. Great service, bartender was really good about checking up on us, and providing suggestions. He was also very knowledgeable about beer. There was a great food truck outside serving smoked foods. Nice vibe, good quality beers, great service, but their selection is limited.

Visited on a May Saturday afternoon. Fairly crowded, but friendly customers. Small tasting area with production works clearly in view. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Beers were few in number and only so-so in my opinion. All styles came off as too Americanized with hops for me. Food was available in the form of a barbecue truck out front.

Stopped in before a Ducks game to check this place out. It's a typical small brewery setup in an industrial location. There was about 30 people enjoying their offerings when we got there. Seating is limited and I think was only one real table. I didn't have high expectations so I really didn't care about the seating, after all, I came here to check out the beer.

Their board showed 20 beers on tap with a nice variety that included a cask choice, Belgians, Strong Ales, Stouts of several varieties, Kolsch and yes-about 6 IPAs of different strengths and styles.

They sell most of their beers in your choice of 4oz, 12oz or 16oz. Some offerings are limited to 4oz. I like this way of doing it because it gives me the chance to sample without getting stuck with 16oz of swill.

Here is what we sampled: MathmTical IPA- golden light color, all hops, citrus,grapefruit and pine. Comes in at 7.5 Abv. I liked it-very good. I Love it IPA- similar to the first one and very good also. Citra Yum Yum Triple IPA- you can get this in a 4 or 12oz glass. It pours like a cloudy lemonade. Very hoppy on both ends and it's hard to tell its racking at 12.3 Abv! I really liked this one and I am glad I was careful and had the 4oz offering. The last ale we tried was the Naughty Sauce. It's a golden milk stout with coffee on nitro. Sounds like it's all over the board and doesn't know what it wants to be. I have to say that I was surprised how roasty it was and nitro did wonders for it.

They have different food trucks there each night so food is an option. Hop heads will approve. I liked their ales and I will return.

Pretty basic set-up, small, a little warm, but the point is the beer, of course, and they usually have a really nice selection, including a couple cask options. It's definitely bare bones and more geared for the beer lover than the tourist, but worth a stop to sample the fresh stuff.

This a perfect size taproom for an afternoon pop in.
They have a knowledgeable and helpful staff. Along with very tasty brews.
Close to Disney and the ball park. Well worth the stop.

Huge sports presence which makes sense since they're near where the Angels play. Did a sampler and beers were good but not great. Place was full but still not congested. A nice neighborhood brewery to catch the game a have one after work. Not in the upper echelon yet.

Been looking to visit this place for some time. Located in a small industrial park, there's a lot of parking nearby that fools you into thinking that the tasting room is bigger than it is. Woefully small for the normal weekend crowd. Their beers are solid and there are at least 8 taps available plus bottled offerings. Their IPAs are well done and some of my favorites.

Eventually, they're gonna have to rethink their seating plan to help accommodate the crowds that show up on weekends. It's mostly standing room only after a while and even standing room is limited.

Overalll, their brews are worth tasting and the place worth visiting. Be prepared to stand due to the limited space. I'll be coming back but probably on a week day hoping the crowds will be less.

Cheers!

Quintessential small brewery set up. Small bar up front with picnic table set up in the brewing area. A single tv, which is all you need at a brewery, dawns the right wall behind the bar. A very beer knowledgeable bartender when I went, had many cool "beer" history stories and brewery stories. Everyone knows why ipa is called ipa but do you know how Guiness started? Go and ask, cool story.
