The patio - COSTA MESA

Seats up to 40

Our outdoor patio is normally seating available to our regular customers. You may reserve it for your party however we must request a minimum charge for your rental. The patio has bench and rod iron chair seating as well as handmade stump tables we found from eucalyptus that was cut down for fire prevention. We have a few umbrellas to provide shade and outdoor lighting hangs above for warm evening lighting. 

The barrel Room - COSTA MESA

Seats up to 30

Our barrel room is an intimate venue with barrels of beer aging on wild yeast for real production. The space has a long table with seating, a drink rail for comfortable standing room, and a window that opens to our patio for natural light and fresh air. There is a charcoal mural done by our Co-Founder Bobby Fitzgerald and a peek-a-boo window to our bar and tasting room. We have music, A/V possibilities, and we are open to your ideas to make your event the best we can. Here you can see some shots of a recent event hosted in this room (photos courtesy of Beijos Events and Candace B Photography):

the whole taproom - COSTA MESA

We are closed on Mondays, so this may be the best day to do this, but you can also buyout the whole taproom for your event on any day. We of course must cover the cost of otherwise lost sales and inconvenience to our normal customers. But for a unique experience, we would love to try and accommodate you.
