Nothing better than great beer & food! Heritage Burgers was the food truck when we were there. Love the stouts at The Bruery & collabs with Chef Brooke!

We went on a Sunday and no where did it say it was closed. Reservation was for 7:15 pm. Google said it was open ... the website said it was open and open table let us make a reservation. We drove down there for nothing.

Outside sitting is nice but since it gets really dark really fast they dont have the lighting situated yet so it gets dark really fast but its okay its understandable since its a new thing. We just used out flashlight on our phone and put the water cups above it for some light :) overall they are trying! Considering this place isnt really for serving

My only complaint is that their beer is very expensive, for a flight of 5 beers you'll pay over $20!

We made a reservation through open table yet when we arrived they had no idea about our reservation. They had a food truck which was completely acceptable & we placed our order and were told that the food would be brought to our table, however an hour later we still had no food. we went to check on it and the food truck had it sitting on the counter and said we called your name but you never came so I just sat there. We brought it up to the waitress she said it’s not our problem as it’s not related to the restaurant. That being said she was the one who said that they would deliver the food so there needed to be better communication between the food truck and the restaurant especially if you’re going to allow them to serve your customers.

Anytime at the Bruery does not disappoint. I had actually meant to make this reservation for their sour branch off grove street, the Bruery Terreux. When we arrived at their other location I noticed the mistake, but the host smiled and honored our reservation, then gave us the next available table. The Bruescicles at the Terreux are FANTASTIC, and the rest of their sours are top notch. Love both locations! This is the place to be if you want a taste of what California's craft beer scene has to offer. Cheers!

One of my favorite breweries, first time visiting on literally the hottest day off the year. We had great service with funny and entertaining employees. It was literally over 100 degrees, and they tried to keep us as cool and as safe as possible with spaced out seating, large umbrellas and tarps, and water misters. We never went without water or beer, very attentive. Made my birthday an enjoyable one. Thanks guys!

Wish they had more shade better shade. The food options are lite, not sure if there is a schedule for the food truck on location but it might be helpful to check on that.

Service was terrible. We sat in the 90+ degree heat waiting for 20 + minutes for someone to bring us water & a menu as instructed. Went inside to see what was up & employees were chatting with each other, not working & told me to go back out to my table to wait. There was obviously no manager on duty. I would recommend beers to go but for the price they weren’t that great. You can get much better at a grocery store or from the hundreds of other breweries in Southern California. Overrated. Don’t waste your time or money.

We arrived a bit early, so that may have impacted our being "recognized" at our table upon being seated - because other than bottles of water being left for us right away, it was well over 10 minutes before we were approached about placing drink orders... which turned out to be quite confusing, as the order sheets left at our table to tell us what choices were available were not accurate. We had to wait for new order sheets to be given to us. Then, even though they were ordered at the same time, our flights of beer orders came at different times, and it was hard to tell which beers we did receive. The service got a bit better as the night went on, but overall they seemed confused. Not being able to give us any ice for soda drinks bought from the food truck did not help... and the food truck was not the same as the one that they had listed would be there on their website. The beers did taste great though, can't argue with that.

No wait which was perfect, beer flight was perfect and to my satisfaction. Plenty of shade, it has been pretty hot in anaheim lately the only request would be is some fans, but other than that I am happy with the service the atmosphere and the beer 😍

We got there right at opening on a Sunday and it was empty, which was nice for us. The food truck came a little late and wasn't ready for a while, their good was good. The beers were great and it was nice to get out of the house for a while. When we left at 1:30, other people had just started to show up.

Everyone was very respectful and clean (Covid). The food truck (Messy bun) was delicious. It was warm outside and they did the best to sit everyone in the shade. Beers were delicious as usual

Have been a Bruery patron for a very LONG time. It breaks my heart to see them have to operate this way...but I know it is what they must do in order to survive. Just sucks.

It’s a new way of enjoying your beer during this COVID-19 era. Reservations are requested and they limit you to 2 hours. Masks required if you step away from your table.

Food purchase is required and you pay by voucher.

It’s the new norm
