This place is easy to miss if you are coming here the first time. It's buried among sea of faceless squared commercial buildings in Anaheim. But once you found it you have won't have trouble finding here the second time.
Very small tasting room compared to other notable OC breweries. Their beers are overall pretty good, and they do experiments on them extensively. They have all their bottled offerings in the coolers ready to go as well as doing growler & grumbler fills. Not much atmosphere to speak of but they do rotate their selections frequently so it earns its merit to come here periodically.

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!
