Although only a month since its grand opening, Green Cheek has already established itself as one of Orange County’s top craft beer producers by releasing an entire portfolio of high quality brews … especially their “hoppies” (IPAs, Pale Ales, etc.). Green Cheek was started by the former head brewer at Noble Ale Works, Even Price … Evan was pretty much responsible for putting and keeping Noble on the map – he is a talented brewer and this shows in every Green Cheek beer.

At the time of my visit there were 9 different beers available and two non-beer selections … iced coffee and tea … pretty unique for a brewery to offer iced tea on tap, definitely a welcomed addition. Green Cheek’s interior space is quite large for a “smaller” brewery. No air conditioning but they have big industrial fans keep the place cool … heat shouldn’t be much of a problem except on the hottest of SoCal days. Friendly vibe and a mixed crowd of older and younger patrons. Family friendly. Staff is super friendly and attentive … there was a decent line during my two hour stay at Green Cheek, but the staff kept the line moving very well. No food served, but they typically have food trucks onsite or you are welcome to bring your own grub.

The value at Green Cheek is the best I’ve seen from any Orange County brewery … meaning the LOWEST PRICES I’ve seen for tasting flights, full pours, crowlers, etc. Considering the high quality of the beer, these prices are a steal. A tasting flight of four 4-ounce pours is $6, full pours averaged $5, crowler fills $10 to $14and growler fills in the $20 to $25 range (price includes glass). Heck, even their merchandise was priced very reasonably … t-shirts were well under $20.

Green Cheek is a welcome addition to the Orange County craft beer scene … it has my highest recommendation … absolutely worth a visit, even if you have to drive out of your way.

GC's location represents what I like in a brewery - a place to rest your mug with vats, kegs and huge sacks of grain stacked in a corner. And beer. Not much in the way of the pitch-black, muddy stoutish stuff, but I don't come here for the chocolate goodness, nay, this is an IPA stop and they do that oh, so well.

Green Cheek Beer Company is located in an industrial park in Orange. They took over Valiant's space. The driveway to enter the business park is easy to miss. Just a friendly warning. The brewery location is tucked in the back but there are signs leading to it.

I think they're doing rather well since it was crowded today. They had a food truck serving food. Once you enter, you make your way back to order your beers. They had about 10 beers on tap. I had a flight of four beers which were pretty good.

The service was friendly and prompt. Another good brewery in Orange County. I enjoyed my visit.

I really like this place! Small and a little hard to find, but worth the effort. Their hazy IPAs are my favorite. We always try to take crowlers home.

Made the trek up to Green Cheek for a Sunday am opening. Nice early crowd, good lineup of various styles plus crowlers (huge plus). Flights are incredibly reasonable and both Evan and Brian were hanging out and chatting with the patrons. Good to see this place get revitalized with a great brewing team. This should be a must stop for everyone coming to the area.
