Looking for craft beer tasting restaurant bars in Orange County, CA? Home to many great breweries, not all have tasting rooms per say. Nor do many OC breweries serve food in which to pair beer it with. Still many OC Breweries are certainly worth attending to gain education and understand their process.

The next best thing is a craft beer flight!

We offer two bar locations. You can purchase a craft beer flight for $10.00. Receive 4 glasses each filled with 4.5 ounces of fresh craft beer on tap! The smaller quantities allow for less drinking and obtaining more knowledge transfer.

  2. Experience: Widen Your Beer Knowledge
  3. Narrows the Beer Best Suited For You
  4. Sample Beer Without Getting Intoxicated
  5. Try Beer Styles Not Previously Tasted

It's advisable to start sampling from lighter to darker beers as ABV typically increases as the color gets darker.

Secondly, this allows your palate to appreciate the nuances more easily as you move on to the next one.

Enjoy a variety of American and Belgian IPAs, light lagers, pale ales, pale lagers, wheat beers, wood aged and more!  

What Is A Beer Flight?

A beer flight is tasting many beer styles and brands. Typically a beer tasting is consuming only one brewery's brand and its various styles. 

Whereas you're sampling beers in smaller quantities, you can cover a lot of ground more quickly. Choose to share with friends and exchange opinions.

So in all practicality, a beer flight offers more variety and the ability to obtain knowledge more quickly. Time to widen the palette.

A craft beer flight consists of four (4) 4.5 ounces of beer in glasses referred to as tasting glasses. The flight of beer is served on a "paddle" with slots to secure this precious gold. The sole objective is to sample beer styles from breweries you haven't had. It's intended to be an experience to draw on later in your travels. This is a knowledge mission.
