Tasting Room Opening Tomorrow!

We are very excited to be opening our tasting room tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 5th) for the first time! We'll have tastings, tours, beer to go, an amazing cask blend of very special beers, and nice people around who love beer as much as you do. There are a few details that you might like to know if you're planning on swinging by.

The big one: Cash Only! We don't yet have our credit card transaction equipment, so please stop by an ATM before coming by. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we'll be able to accept credit cards soon!

Hours / Days of Tasting Room Operation:

Friday: 2 pm - 8 pm (Tour at 6 pm)
Saturday: 12 pm - 6 pm (Tour at 4 pm)
or by appointment.

We plan to be closed on holidays and may be open on alternate days in the event of a holiday, but we'll let you know as these dates come closer.

Growler Fills:

For the first few weeks, we ask you to bring your own growler! Our own growlers aren't in yet, and we don't want to deprive you of fresh Bruery draft beer at home. We have stickers made which cover all the bases (legally speaking), and while it's not pretty, you won't have to pay for a growler for the time being. Not to say you won't want a Bruery growler, they're going to be pretty cool.

To celebrate our Gold Medals at the Los Angeles International Beer Competition, Humulus Bruin and Black Orchard will be only $8 for a growler fill!

Beers Available for Growler Fills:

Orchard White: $12
Black Orchard: $12 (Current special of $8)
Humulus Bruin: $12 (Current special of $8)
Hottenroth Berliner Weisse: $12

Beer Prices @ The Bruery:

First Firkin Fridays & Our Mélange Series (Written by Tyler):

Start the first weekend of the month off right, every month, with the tapping of a new firkin (cask conditioned) at The Bruery. The first Friday of each month will commemorate the tapping of a "Bruery special" cask conditioned ale. To celebrate the opening of our tasting bar, Patrick and I created a special blend of Russian Imperial Stout and Flemish Red to kick off our Mélange Series of beers. The Mélange series (Mélange meaning blend) consists of the brewers' most prized blend and don't worry, we will be sure to keep it interesting for you! I'm really excited about this, as a brewer there is nothing more fun than sitting down with a couple of beers and creating something new, an art form in itself. Make sure you come out this weekend; this is an in-house only beer and who knows when we're going to see it again! No growler fills of cask beer, unfortunately.

We're at 715 Dunn Way in Placentia, CA, right off of the 57 Freeway at Orangethorpe. Click this link to get directions via Google Maps. Give us a call if you get lost (714-996-6258). Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!

Wow,such a crowd was seen there yesterday! I went around 5 and there were 35-45 people there! Great time Patrick, Rachel and Tyler! I had the Melange, oh so yummy, thick, malty, and smooth! Too bad it's gone.

I also sampled the Triple and the Bruin. Both were excellent too.

I also purchaced 2 bottles each of Luveds (low number collectibles!) and the Tripel for my beer celler. These baby's are going to get better in the next few years, as well as more valuable :) .
In fact, I'm heading back over there again today, 9-6-08 to buy some of the special priced Orchard beers.

Looking forward to making every friday event just for the special firken beer!

Well done guys!

Well, I did go back by this Saturday, and also met some great BeerAdvocate and RateBeer folks on 9.6.08. Thank you to Patrick, Rachel and Tyler,I know you were busy today and yesteday, but I feel You're going to be busy from now on every fri/sat for the rest of the time you have us over for tasting and selling of your awesome beers!

I was very thankful that you've set up an onsite "package store" where we can fill a growler or buy Bruery fresh bottles of your beer! I'm enjoying an early release of Luveds now and will save the rest of the bottles I've purchased for your 5th and 10th anniv. party!(memo, save some!)
Looking forward to both the Bourbon aged Luveds and the fall release "YamBeer", as well as anything else that's going to be brewed there.
Great job in less than a year of brewing!
And did I say:
LA Intl Fair, 4-Gold medals and 1 bronze?
Way to go to the extreme, I wish you the best of "luck" and a prosperous career as one of, if not the best, breweries in the world.
Keep it going.
