OC Craft Beer Update: Expanded Hours, Moving News

Our never-sated appetite for great craft beer is expanding, and OC's craft brewers are expanding with it. Read on for good news for beer drinkers in la naranja.
Beginning this Sunday, August 1, Bootlegger's Brewery will be open 12-6 every Sunday. No word on whether they've arranged for food trucks to be there on Sundays, but at the very least you can enjoy a pint of Rustic Rye or Knuckle Sandwich while trying to forget about the impending workweek.

Work on the Bruery Provisions store in Old Town Orange continues apace; some new faces were seen at the Bruery Tasting Room this weekend, including the cheese guru. Asked when this new Holy Grail of beer might open, the response was a fumfered, "Septem...ber... yeah." We can't wait.

Finally, Tustin Brewing has announced the date of their 14th anniversary party. Sunday, August 29 from 1-4 p.m., with barbecue, prizes and maybe a beer or two or ten. Fourteen years... take that, you whippersnapper North County breweries. Now get off my lawn!

Bootlegger's Brewery, 401 S. Richman Av., Fullerton; (714) 871-BEER.
The Bruery, 715 Dunn Way, Placentia; (714) 996-2658.
Tustin Brewing Company, 13011 Newport Av., Tustin; (714) 665-BEER.
