Was stoked to finally check out BL after drinking many of their excellent (stout) decent (hoppy) beers over the last year. They allow dogs which is very cool and had a food truck. The staff reminded me of the folks at my gym that bro out constantly and make people uncomfortable; service was mediocre and pretty unfriendly. It put a bad taste in my mouth before I even got to try any beers but luckily I met some really great locals who made the stay much better.

The selection was large but every beer except the BA dark beers was either mediocre or not very good, both in terms of flavor and representation of style. The base beer for BA Horadric wasn't even on the same planet. The baltic was pretty good. The difference in quality was striking; I've never been to a brewery with such wildly divergent qualities of regular offerings versus something they threw in a barrel. They've definitely got that down.

Overall worth a visit but better to seek out their now ridiculously hard-to-find stouts or drink them on tap and pass on their other offerings.

Stopped by to pick up bottles, but hung around and tried a few beers on tap. I really like the tap room - very cool vibe. The selection was very good, but it might have been related to the special release. Service was fine - the line was kind of slow. Quality was awesome - I loved everything that I tried.

Great location (now that they usually have the back open as well). Staff is always friendly. Beers are world class. My only complaint is they need more BA stouts and bigger beers on tap more often.

EDIT: lately they always have BA beer on tap, so we just made them the perfect place to get tossed

Science and beer! What else is needed? Cool little spot with a dope interior. Didn't have the beat selection on tap, but I would definetly come here to hang out and drink again.

Probably my favorite brewery from my most recent trip to Southern Cal.

Location is kind of away from what I think of as "Anaheim", but they did up the inside of the warehouse very nicely. Cool looking theme and logo, and the very tasty Mexican food truck parked out front was a bonus.

Quality was good. I tried a sample tray and enjoyed every one of beers on the tray. Nothing really wowed me, but everything was solid or better. And the selection was pretty extensive with upwards of 16 beers on tap.

Service was good, friendly, quick, and willing to help.

Well worth the effort to visit this place, recommended.

This place makes me angry. At least it did the two times I went. Both times I had a two flights and tried all the beers they had on tap. Not one stood out to me. They all were completely forgettable. They aren't poorly made, actually, on the contrary. They're excellent executions of shitty recipes. This brewery caters to a very specific market. This is targeted towards people who want to like beer, more than they actually like beer. You get the brewery experience, come home with a growler or t-shirt, but in the end, they don't taste much different than a Budweiser or a blue moon. This is a KILLER business model for someone who wants to make money. And they are, and doing seemingly well. The problem is, it felt as if nothing had any passion behind it, and it was purely just a business opportunity, not someones life dream like Patrick Rue up the street at The Bruery, or Steve and Jerry over at Noble. These guys live and breathe craft beer. Contrast to the retail expert, lawyer, and small business entrepreneur who run BL. They're going to make a ton of cash while this craft beer craze keeps growing, and they'll probably stay in business because there's so many people who just want a cream ale that tastes like a bud light, or a guy who wants to say they like IPA's (but BL's has less hops in it than an average pale ale...). It makes the visitors feel good about themselves; they're with it. and playing up to peoples desires to fit in will always be popular.

I've been going to this brewery for over a year now. My friends brought me here for my birthday in May of 2015. I immediately fell in love. The vibe is awesome. It's geeky. It's sci/fi. It's fun. This would be enough to carry lots of places, but Bottle Logic backs it all up with fantastic beer. I fell in love with lagerithm and the rest of their constants. They have an excellent rotation of new, exciting, and experimental beers. There's a lot of great craft beer in Orange County and Bottle Logic is one of my favorites!

I randomly picked a date that they had a special release to make my first visit, thus it was packed.

This place is located in Anaheim near the Bruery in an industrial park like area. Plenty of street parking. Once I got inside, it was nicely done. There was a tasting area to the left side after entering the front entrance and the back brewing area was visible for the patrons. I like seeing breweries showcase their brewing equipment and capacity.

Next time, I'll pick a date that's more laid back, so I can enjoy my visit and taste more beers.

Awesome place, well decorated in vintage futuristic space/science theme. Great beer, awesome food trucks, friendly and quick service. Not a big selection of take out bottles. Cheers!

OK. I will admit that this is my home brewery. I have never received bad service nor have I had a bad beer here. Their Stasis Project beers constantly blow my mind.

Very easy to visit the Bruery, Noble Ale Works and this place in succession as I did and I'm sure there are other breweries that could have also been in the mix.

I was able to order a few small tasters to try some of their standard beers and they're cool, although I'm guilty of wishing there had been a few stouts, bigger beers and rarities available.

The space itself was pretty damn tiny but it felt cozy and people were enjoying themselves on what was New Year's Eve.

This place makes some legitimately amazing beers. Everything I had on tap was incredibly delicious, and the staff was very friendly. Definitely glad I made it a stop on my vacation.

I went there on the day of a bottle release. So, this review probably reflects that. The selection was fabulous, because they had many extras on tap. Good food trucks out front. Service was decent, but hampered by the number of people. Would love to drop in on a less crazy day.

I was blown away by how good this brewery is. We toured a few breweries in the area and this took the cake. Such a great selection, cool vibe, and some high quality beers. They had Star Wars themed beers at the time I went, which may sound gimmicky, but they were insanely good. Just shows that they keep things interesting and are having fun. And yes, there are "whale" beers to be had a well. Red Eye November was amazing. If you're in a 50 mile radius, go there immediately.

Visited here with my buddy before the Red Wings - Ducks game this past Sunday.

Vibe was OK - - a decent amount of seating inside that probably held 40 or so.

Quality is solid - love the Belgians and the IPAs were very smackable.

Service was very good. I believe the owners/brewers served us and they made for some nice conversation. Very friendly and very open to all my annoying questions.

Selection was solid. I believe there were at least four belgians and four ipas as well as some stouts to choose from.

As an aside there was a food truck parked out front that made some very tasty street tacos. You put your order in outside and they bring it into the tasting room for you - was definitely appreciated! If my buddy and i go back for more Red Wings hockey next year we both agreed that we would come here again!

Super chill on the Sat Night (just before Christmas) we showed up at 11:00PM and closed the place down. There were only 3-4 people there other than us plus a group of 5-6 people in the back getting a tour. We had Darkstar November which was a definite highlight. Wished they had more bottles to go but they had 5-6 nice beers on tap. Waitstaff was really nice (although we had their full attention). Very clean place with cool mens bathroom.

Bottle Logic is pretty accessible to OC freeways, though it is tucked away on an industrial side street. Inside the tasting room, it's clean with a cool steam-punk theme. The staff is friendly and there's a relatively diverse selection of in house beers available. While Bottle Logic makes a range of beers, their stouts are their forte.

I visited Bottle Logic this weekend while down in Anaheim for a convention, and I quite liked the place. It's new and clean and attractive inside, with a cool science theme and bookshelves and electrical equipment adorning the walls. There were a dozen or so beers on tap, and I had a flight to try some of their flagship selections. They definitely try to do some interesting things there, although I found their lighter-alcohol offerings to be among their best. Service was good; one cool thing they have is a chalkboard indicating what's in the fermenters so you know what is going to be available coming up soon. I dig it; I would encourage other brewers to do this as well. Definitely worth checking this place out.

Tucked away between business buildings in Anaheim lies Bottle Logic. Its a low key spot with a small outdoor area right up front. As you enter, you will see tables/seating to both your right and left hand side. The main bar will be at the back left when you enter the door. There's also a big giant back area. Food trucks are here which seems to be on a daily basis so you shouldn't have to worry about getting food while you drink delicious BL beers. They have a nice selection and luckily the last time I was here I got to enjoy FO.

Keep a waaay open mind on this brewery. Foresight and planning are rare commodities with nascent breweries but BL is showing a real affinity for barrel aging. Darkstar November was a tasty RIS right out of the barrel. Their array of ba vanilla stouts each matured in a different whiskey and unveiled at BL's one year anniversary in 2015 showed great promise. The grapefruit APA is one of the tastier citrus style APAs I've sampled. Great promise with this one. And, oh yeah, their A/C gets a 4.5, maybe a 5 in August.

Went there on a Saturday night after The Bruery closed down their tasting room for the night (Bottle Logic is open two more hours!). Inside the tasting room was clean and well constructed. For being a fairly new brewery, they certainly were well funded. The beers were overall tasty and I had the pleasure of tasting all thirteen they had on tap that night. I'd go back again to see what other offerings they had; though there are some other options that are more appealing in the area.

First time visit. Nice interior decor and quite a bit of seating as compared to other tasting rooms I've been in. Very helpful/knowledgeable staff who was going the extra mile to make everyone happy. The tasting flight is their regular tap offerings which were all solid, including a Saison that I thought was pretty damn good for a style I rarely seek out. Their bottled offerings mirrored the tap offerings. They had some other brews on tap as well and you can taste, get a full pour or a growler fill. Too bad some of their other brews were not available, but that happens everywhere and makes you want to come back again. Food truck out front too just in case you feel the need.

Prices are reasonable and the brews are rock solid. I would recommend visiting this place to anyone.

Parking was easy, nice and clean inside. Food truck outside. Each beer on tap came with detailed information about its creation which is great while you are tasting.
