“Get the Brown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I always make it a point to seek out local microbrews and this one hit the spot. The Laguna brown that they brew on site is perfect on a hot day. Giovanni, the bartender/manager was warm and welcoming and kept us well entertained. The appetizers were far above average brew pub quality. This place is definitely worth a stop.

“Weak”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

The place stinks and it offers so little. Beer is OK but $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

tService? Makes you feel like a tourist, not cool.

“Last great beer in Laguna Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2009

My husband and I stop in on occasion for their good food, friendly service and best of all - great beer! Their new IPA is out of this world. After Laguna Beach Brewery closed down, this is the last handmade beer place in town.
