What a great spot. Stopped in after sampling a few vineyards in the Napa area. What a treat! Do not miss if anywhere close to Fairfield. The Evil Cousin DIPA is amazing and the selection in the taproom is great! 2 Thumbs way up!

My favorite local brewery by far. Best core lineup and lots of fun one-offs all the time. Fills any growler.

Love this brewery!!!
Jamil Zainasheff is the worlds most awarded brewer, and the owner and founder of Heretic Brewery.
The setting is great with a cool taproom that is sometimes a little packed but has a sweet tv displaying the beer available on tap. Also they section off part of the brewery for customers to sit and enjoy the delicious Food Truck dishes available just outside. None the less the BEST thing about this place is the beer. I could down CHP like it's a cold glass of chocolate milk and their Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout Incubus might as well be a Succubus for barrel aged lovers like me. The people working there are really cool and some good looking females are there as well as Jamil himself can be seen on rare occasions.
Wonderful Brewery keeps doin good things for beer!

I don't like Sacramento, but the best part of going there is I get to hit Heretic on the way home. This is one of the best kept secrets in the Bay Area. Awesome beer, chill vibe and very friendly, helpful staff.

I went here back when all you could find in stores was Evil Cousin, Evil Twin, Shallow Grave and occasionally Gramarye or CHP. At the taproom I tried awesome beers like Petit Rouge (my wife's favorite), Evil 3, Evil Bee, Miscreant (AMAZING), Incubus and so many others. Lots of exciting brewery only beers to be had and completely worth a stop.

Small tasting room attached to the brewery. Beer is fresh. Lots of variety from IPA, pale, porters, sours, barrel-aged, cask and more. I tried six and all were worth having again. Food was available on-site. Good service. Worth stopping by for.

They opened early. You get free beer if you do the tour. They have a magical wheel that you can spin to give you beer discounts. Texas beer prices (not as expensive as California prices) in California. Relaxed space to meet an old friend and catch up. Friendly staff. They had over 10 taps so a great selection. Also a very diverse tap list of IPAs, porters, sours and a Brett beer. Not to mention the beer is delicious.
