The tasting room at this brewery in an unlovely part of Fullerton features 12 to 15 house-made beers at rock-bottom prices. The left side of the beer menu remains more or less constant, including an excellent rye IPA and a very good chipotle-coffee stout; the right side of the menu houses the experimental batches, such as wine-barrel-aged lambics and sour beers. Drink the beer from Mason jars ($2.50-$3.50 per half-pint; $4-$6 per pint). This is also one of the best places to get in on the upscale-food-truck fad; a truck parks at the brewery each day it's open.
