This Week in Booze Barns


Fish and chips are the name of the game here: triangular-shaped pieces of fish fried to a dark brown, and the steak fries are the same. As for the regular viewings of Notre Dame football, the way the Golden Domers are doing this year, you'll down the fine beer here almost as quickly as Notre Dame plummets into mid-college oblivion. 10201 Slater Ave., Fountain Valley, (714) 963-2718; $

More About

Located in the desperately fine-dining-deficient Brea, this place has everything—from steaks, chicken and pastas to an immense oyster bar and many brewed-right-here beers. Gorge yourself with abandon on such appetizers as tropical-shrimp quesadillas or French Quarter egg rolls. 101 E. Imperial Hwy., Brea, (714) 257-0101; $$

The yard house

An überbrewpub/restaurant boasting 180 taps of brew with some good European pilsners and Anchor Steam. This is good news given the long lines. If you can wait the wait, drink the beer and eat the steak. You'll be happy. Triangle Square, 1875 Newport Blvd., Costa Mesa, (949) 642-0090; Irvine Spectrum, 71 Fortune Dr., Irvine, (949) 753-9373; 401 Shoreline Village Dr., Long Beach, (562) 628-0455; $$
