Anaheim Brewery is located in the Packing District. I haven't been in this area before but it seems to have been revitalized recently. The brewery is located behind Umami Burger, so it's not visible from the street. Before you enter the brewery they have an outdoor patio area with benches.

Inside, it was a small space. There's a bar area and you can see parts of the production area. The tap list comprises of their house beers, maybe about 7 beers. I had a hefeweizen and it was nice. The selection is not large, but if I lived closer I would visit Anaheim Brewery from time to time.

OK beers. This place has an odd empty feel to it, it could be the bar stools that are not shaped for human anatomy and are horribly uncomfortable. They have short hours, tricky parking and beer prices are high.

I stopped in at Anaheim Brewing while in town this weekend and had a couple of beers. The place is nice, in an older building with a barn-meets-industry feel. There were only 8 beers on tap while I was there, but I had a tasting flight and they were pretty decent, for the most part. Service is good with very friendly bar staff; it's definitely a cool place to hang out. The beer didn't exactly blow me away but I like the place, so I'd be interested in returning at some point and seeing what other beers they may have on offer.

Great place. Sticks straight to the beer.

Staff is well informed and very helpful.

Small building but gives it an at home feel.

First time going here i had the flight. It is a great way to feel out the beer offered. I was a huge fan of the Hef. It has a very nice taste and body with a hint of banana (yes, banana). Delicious and fair priced.

I will definitely be coming back here. They give you a beer tasting experience that is based specifically on their beer. I have been to other breweries in Southern California, and this place is in my top 3.

All in all, great experience and is a place you could take anyone to have a quite conversation over a couple quality beers in an old area of Anaheim.

Atmosphere - Cool space at the new Anaheim Packing District (historic). Typical tasting room setup - looong bar seating inside, tall ceilings, minimal decor, interesting view to brewing equipment behind bar. Outdoor seating with picnic tables & shade structure adjacent to green space. Probably a fun place to hang out after work / weekend / etc. In true Lab Holdings fashion there is a contemporary designed park adjacent which is a fun space for the kiddies and animals to run around. Seemed like a lot of locals were coming in to fill growlers, catch a beer, etc.

Quality - Beer is not bad just fairly bland - traditional styles (Hef / Red / Golden / etc). Great for the typical public or tourist wanting to find a local flavor. Beers were average for their styles. Beers served in same glassware, but I suppose for styles it was not a big deal.

Service - very friendly bartenders who were willing to chat about the beer and brewery. Knew enough about beer to have interesting conversation.

Selection - See quality above - 5 beers on tap of all their own brewed.

Food - none, but apparently you can bring your own in and marinade outside. Umami is next door... So grab a burger and hit a refreshing traditional style beer.

Overall - Even though the beer selection is not exciting I am glad this place exists. Sometimes you just need a simple beer bar to hang out at in a cool local space. Once the rest of the Packing District fills in this place should shine.
