Valiant Brewing is located in an industrial area of Orange. It's not easy to find. I had to stop and confirm with my iPhone. It's inside a series of buildings that you enter from Batavia Street through an alley.

The day I visited which was a random visit since I was in the area, they were releasing their Orange Slice Sour. I bought a bottle and had a glass of their Sour Cherry Stout. The production area, seating area, and taps are kinda all comingled together with a large flatscreen on the wall. The guys behind the bar were fast, friendly and efficient to deal with the bottle release.

No food, but they did have a food truck parked at the entrance.

Cool place to hang out and have beers with friends.

I visited Valiant the other day while in town for a convention and I think the place is awesome. They had 24 taps available when I was there, with a wide selection of styles (sours, saisons, IPAs, everything). I went with a taster tray and there were no missteps at all; I would love to be able to go back and sample more. The taproom is basically inside the brewery and there is a huge list on the wall of what's brewing in each fermentation vessel and brite tank, something I totally love. My server was very knowledgeable about all the beer and friendly to boot.

In short, I can't recommend Valiant enough, and I'm already looking forward to my trip to the OC next year so that I can hit Valiant again.

This brewery sits in an industrial area in Orange. The tap room is located right next to the warehouse. I stopped by to pick up a few bottles, limited seating, but the cashier was really cool and very helpful. Picked up two bottles and their imperial stout is amazing. They did not have too many taps and not a very big selection. Next time I will probably have to try a few beers before I leave.

The beer is tucked away in an industrial park, it's a bit hard to discern its location from the street. Once inside there's a tasting area, adjacent to the brewing area. There's a huge number of in-house beers on tap and there are occasionally food trucks on hand to provide food. The service is pretty fast and the selection is solid.

At times, their selection can be lacking, but at other times it can be overwhelming. They make very good beer and everyone that works there are really nice and helpful. Come while a Ducks game is on and you get $1 off pours... pretty awesome.
