How We Got Here

We like to say, half-jokingly, that our passion for beer is in our blood . . . Greg’s grandfather worked for the Pabst brewery in Milwaukee for 40 years.

But we really developed our love for fresh, local beer during the seven years we lived in Bavaria, Germany. There almost every small town had its own brewery.  After polishing our professional brewing skills at packaging breweries and pubs in Northern Virginia, we relocated back to Barbara’s native California, and worked at several local brewpubs.

In 2010, we re-established the famous Anaheim Beer that disappeared when National Prohibition closed the taps in 1920.  In May of 2011, we brewed our first batch of Anaheim 1888, based on the style of beer made at the original Anaheim Brewery.  Six years later, we brew often so our neighborhood always has plenty of fresh beer.

With Anaheim Brewery located in the Packing District, there’s plenty of to-go food choices.  Grab something to eat, let your kids run around in Farmer’s Park while you kick back with a pint in our Beer Garden.

We look forward to sharing a glass & some laughter with you.
