Location Description:

Hops and yeast. These two substances, which we tragically take for granted, find their spotlight at this delightfully understated bakery and brewery. Discretely located in a seemingly stagnant Huntington Beach warehouse strip, Brewbaker's allows you to create your own blends of mouth-watering beer and nosh on a slice of freshly baked pizza at the same time. While the personal beer-making process is the main attraction, owner Dennis Midden maintains that baking is his first love, and a chomp through his pretzels-chewy loops with a perfect crustiness and enough salt to enhance the taste but not cover it-confirms it. Despite its short hours, Brewbaker's is usually packed with patrons in the evenings and offers an intimate atmosphere and great conversation from the slightly eccentric staff. Come for the food and brews, but stay for the fun!
