Brewery X

This industrial-chic taproom is a Garden Grove staple, pouring up innovative craft beers and serving rustic pub grub in a laid-back atmosphere. Don’t sleep on their award-winning New England-style IPAs—the Citra Slayer DIPA packs a serious hop punch with notes of grapefruit, mango, and pine. If hops aren’t your thing, their Coconut Porter is a must-try with rich chocolate and toasted coconut notes. The killer beer is matched by a menu of hearty sandwiches, salads, and appetizers that are a cut above standard brew pub fare. Regulars rave about the cozy indoor-outdoor vibes and rotating food truck lineup on the dog-friendly patio. It’s the kind of homey hangout where you can easily lose track of an afternoon over a few flights and some tasty bites. When it comes to an authentically chill Garden Grove brewery experience, Brewery X delivers every time.

Bine & Barrel Brewing Co.

Looking for a side of friendly competition alongside your cold ones? Head to Bine & Barrel, where you can crush a couple pints while battling your crew over classic games like skee-ball, darts, and shuffleboard. This lively brewery has a retro arcade vibe with neon signs, vintage decor, and a sweet outdoor space decked out with Astroturf and lawn games. As for the beer, Bine & Barrel is all about those quintessential West Coast styles. Take your taste buds on a tour with their array of bright, aromatic IPAs and bold, crisp pale ales. The Hop Scorcher double IPA and Coastal Cruiser session ale are local faves, but you really can’t go wrong with any of their hoppy offerings. Kick back, snack on shareables like Bavarian pretzels and beer-battered jalapeño coins, and let the friendly competition and good vibes flow!

Outfield Brewing

This dog and family-friendly taproom scores big with atmosphere alone—Outfield Brewing’s indoor-outdoor setup feels like an upscale beer garden meets a suburban backyard hangout. Sip your suds at picnic tables shaded by strings of market lights as kids play frisbee on the artificial turf “field.” The real draw here, though, is the ever-rotating selection of creative craft brews ranging from fruit-infused sours to decadent pastry stouts. Warm weather calls for a crisp, citrusy number like their Centerfield Citra pale ale or a puckery Raspberry Delight gose. When temperatures dip, you’ll want to snuggle up with Outfield’s indulgent Cinnamon Dolce latte imperial stout or boozy Pecan Pie brown ale. Whatever your poison, this all-ages brewery offers a welcoming community vibe alongside some truly exceptional and innovative beers.

Beach City Brewery

In a city famous for its strawberry fields, it was only a matter of time before someone channeled that SoCal freshness into craft beer form. Beach City Brewery excels at infusing bright, seasonal ingredients and flavors into their unique and smoothly balanced brews. Quench your thirst with a beautifully tart hibiscus-lemongrass blonde ale, or have your mind blown by their rich and decadent Mexican hot chocolate imperial stout. Beach City knows how to perfectly capture the flavors of each season’s finest fruits and botanicals in liquid form. Cozy up with a pineapple-habanero strong ale on a rare rainy winter day, or cool off with a slushy blueberry lemonade shandy all summer long. This sunny, socially conscious brewery is always pushing the boundaries while showcasing the bounty of our local farms and fields.

Refuge Brewery

As its name suggests, Refuge is an outdoor oasis in the middle of the city—a shaded paradise filled with exotic palms, wooden benches, and strings of glowing lights. But the real refuge is in the beer, a perfectly curated collection of Belgian-style ales, German lagers, and rich stouts that provide an escape for your taste buds. This relaxed brewery feels worlds away from the everyday, giving you a true beer-focused reprieve. Don’t miss their signature King’s Refuge imperial stout, a robust sipper with seductive notes of chocolate, caramel, espresso and fig. Or go for a lighter Belgian wit or kölsch-style ale when you crave something refreshing. Whatever you choose, Refuge’s chill, laid-back setting and excellent brews make it the perfect place to unwind after a long workweek.

The Bruery

Ok, hear me out—The Bruery isn’t technically located in Garden Grove proper. But just across the city line in Placentia, this award-winning production brewery and tasting room is well worth a short jaunt for any true beer geek. If you’re even remotely serious about your suds, this mecca of mixed fermentation and barrel-aged brews needs to be on your hit list. From their boldly sour Berliner weisses to bourbon barrel-aged imperial stouts like the iconic Black Tuesday, The Bruery consistently raises the bar for experimental and complex craft beers. Their cozy tasting room offers intimate flights and pours of rare, cellar-vintage ales alongside bites from a rotation of visiting food trucks. Just be sure to go with a sellable liver—these decadent, boozy beers aren’t for the faint of heart!

Brewery Bourgeois

This family-owned and woman-led operation embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of Garden Grove. Brewery Bourgeois brings a delightfully fresh, creative energy to the local brew scene with their consistently excellent range of ales, lagers, and mixed fermentation beers. From hazy IPAs to crisp pilsners, every beer that comes out of this small-batch brewery is excellently crafted with premium ingredients. While the core lineup is suitably surf-town with its Dole Whip blonde ale, PCH pale ale and Orange Smash IPA, the real stars are Brewery Bourgeois’ rotating seasonals and sours. You’ll find all sorts of playful infusions like cucumber melon gose, black is beautiful imperial stout, and even a surprising horchata blonde ale. Settle in at the cozy tasting room and discover an exciting new favorite at this under-the-radar gem.
