I visited the "tasting room" of Bootlegger's Brewery along with a couple of friends. We got four rounds of half-pints and all shared with each other, so we got to try twelve different beers. I was pleasantly surprised at how many different beers they had available on tap--more beers than I knew they brewed! This is particularly impressive given their small, compact brewery set up. Highlights for me included a Belgian beer brewed with plums, a white beer brewed with lemongrass, Knuckle Sandwich, and Black Phoenix. I was disappointed that they had sold out of Knuckle Sandwich bottles, but given that I was there for the last hour and a half of their open hours on a Saturday night, I can't complain or blame. We were also too late for the food truck(s) that had apparently been there earlier. It would be nice if they sold some sort of snacks (e.g., peanuts). I got a printed pint glass (two for five dollars is a good deal). I'll happily go back first change I get!

Visited new tasting room on a late summer / early fall afternoon to catch a couple brews and football. Ended up being "Sport your own Stein" day so we came prepared and hit the 25 cents / ounce deal.
A: new tasting room located in Fullerton Downtown - definitely has a little of the typical Fullerton vibe - tatted up bros. Overall was very enjoyable and had a relaxed weekend afternoon vibe. Indoor / Outdoor space to take advantage of SoCal weather. Lots of games a plus - cornhole / giant jenga / foosball. Lots of tables to sit with plenty of umbrella or indoor shade. (1) TV if you want to catch a sport. Decor is minimalist (typical tap room) but they do fly the American flag which is a plus! Typical chalk board with beer list. Minimal crowd until brew tour showed up, but still chill.
Q: Bootleggers brews solid beer. The brews on tap were good to great. We sampled a few and drank a pint of a couple others. Jars are standard glassware - awesome. A lot of locals showing up to fill growlers.
S: Standard. One guy who was pleasant and served in timely manner.
S: All In-house taps. Standard year rounds and a couple seasonal and one off small batches (pumpkin cask and Golden Chaos fruit). I think there were 16 taps and plenty of variety to keep a rookie or geek happy.
F: they do not serve food but they usually have food trucks and I believe you can bring your own food.
Overall - Fun place we would frequent if we lived closer. In downtown Fullerton so you can walk to local restaurants, etc.

I visited the old location on Super Bowl Sunday right before attending a friend's party. The brewery was in the mist of moving to their new location.
The location I visited was in a warehouse district. The inside was divided into a tasting area and brewing side. I thought they provided a nice area for people to congregate and enjoy their beers.
I went specifically to try Knuckle Sandwich from the tap. It didn't disappoint. It was delicious. I believe they had most of their lineup that day, but I had my fill of KS, and mozied on my way to the party.
I'll try to visit the new location when I'm in the area.

I visited the brewery before they moved to the new location. I say it is a vast improvement . Now they have a biergarten with alot of different brews to try. Prices have gone up a bit for the pint but it is still a steal since they change the selection pretty often. Highly Recommend and the Food Truck is a bonus. xoxo Bootlegger's.

I've been to their old location dozen times. They moved to a new place just up the street not too long ago converged at Commonwealth, Sante Fe & Highland, which is pretty easy to find.
I have been to the new location just a few times and it got nice, airy environment. I come here at non-rush hours so most times at most just 3-4 people here. I could imagine the nightmarish crowds on a weekend night. Excellent service all their staffs are very friendly.
Probably my favourite local brewery aside from Bruery. Most notably they brew an excellent varieties of IPA's. All of their other styles are above-average and drinkable. I would come here repeatedly.

Open area outside with plenty of tables, giant Jenga game complete with hipsters, inside seating as well. Cash register style order system which big board offering plenty of their normal offerings as well as a few special release ones. Unfortunately none of them really hit the spot for me or really wowed me. The Mint Chocolate was particularly disappointing and watery with a root beer aftertaste. The workers were real friendly and enjoyed chatting with you and I really loved the cool outdoor atmosphere which allows you to meet new people and hang out, but I wish the beer would step it up a notch.
