First stop on my mini Corona beer tour today, right off the 91 Freeway on the west side of the street in a shopping center with a Rite Aid that is actually closing down, interesting concept here, one part brewpub and one part pizza parlor, hallway connects the two but different atmosphere in each, bar is a small rectangle in a fairly small room, got there right when it opened, they had fourteen taps, nine of their own beers and five unimpressive guests including Bud, Bug Light, Coors Light, Guinness, and Wyder's Pear Cider, their beers were Bishop's Belgian triple, a stout, marzen, imperial red named El Diablo Rojo, Corona Beach Ale, IPA, Mai Bock, Hefeweizen, and Pale Ale, some cool posters on the walls, older building but still clean and comfortable, prices were not bad, I think pints were around four dollars and growlers to go were fifteen or sixteen, had a few tasters and the beer was average, did not try the food but have had Lampost Pizza in Tehachapi a couple years ago and it is not bad, place you take your kids and enjoy some microbrews in the next room over, might check this place out again some time

I visited Main Street Brewery recently since I was in the area on business. To be honest, it's a fairly depressing spot that is attached to a Lamppost Pizza. The interior is outdated and somewhat run down. There are some tables around the perimeter of the bar with seats at the bar as well. I sat at the bar and service was pretty average the whole time I was there even though there weren't too many people. The quality of the beers was pretty good with the beers served in appropriate glassware but the temperature of the beers was pretty warm. They had 8 of their own beers on tap and a few guest taps along with some bottles from what I could tell. Prices were reasonable for the beers. Overall, I would probably skip coming here again and would be wary recommending it to anyone.

Great place! The exterior is pretty unassuming but don't let that fool you. The Tippel Trippel is amazing. We got about four pints of beer and a large two topping pizza for around $30 so the prices are quite reasonable. The service was great too. Will definitely be back!

Just moved to Corona and discovered this little jewel. Main Street Brewing has some really tasty craft brews along with a few big guys. For me, nothing beats an IPA and their Hop Daddy fits the bill perfectly. Excellent hop profile with a great malt backbone...nice and refreshing. At $4.17 a pint, it is a deal. The staff is very friendly and the place is always clean. I have only had their pepperoni pizza, which is good, so I can't comment on anything else. Overall...great local place for beer, pizza & friends! I can't to try the other 9 craft brews!

When we go to chain stores or restaurants, we often get what we expect. At the Main Street Brewery in Corona, things felt a little different. First off, the brewery feels like a completely different establishment than the pizzeria. It's small, but there seems to be a stronger feel and pride about the beer. And the bar area was on the livlier side for a Thursday afternoon. And that beer list...
There are ten different house beers, plus Stone Ruination and a handful of other assorted beers. Among the house beer are a hefeweizen, red ale, pale ale, coffee stout, tripel, barleywine, and more. I had a couple pints of the coffee stout and they were delicious. And so was the pizza. The pints were cheap too, at just $4.17 at pint. You can also purchase a larger glass and pitchers too.
I didn't really prepare myself to try as many house beers as I could, but I will say that I will be back. This is definately worth a stop, especially in Corona.

Main St. is a great place to go and have a few pints of craft. Bob (the brewer) is a cool guy and very friendly. I always give him a hard time about the lower than advertised abv on his milk stout and he always takes it in stride. Atmosphere is chill, no one has ever come at me sideways while drunk or anything, even when we have ladies with us. Bartenders are very cool and aren't afraid to pour out head to give you the full glass you paid for. As a chill little neighborhood brewery, I got nothing bad to say about Main St. at all.

Spent the day at Main Street for a I.E. homebrewers contest judging, way way way way way more east then I ever need to be.
Atmosphere was pretty relaxed and what you would expect from a pizza place with a brewpub, video games and decent picnic table style seating.
Pizza was decent, to damn decent, had a slice of a few different pies, nothing spectacular but all very edible with a good beer.
Beer selection was nothing I was interested in outside of the house beers, tipple trippel was probably my favorite of the bunch, nicely made and very quaffable on a hot day, tasted the ipa, stout and pilsner as well, all decent to ok.
Will I ever find myself driving back out here for pizza and beer, probably not. If im in the area will I stop in and grab some zaa and a brew, yes.

I regret to say that the Main Street Brew Pub is only a recent find, though I lived in Corona for over 10 years(I now reside in Arkansas). I have had several dates with my fiancé, as well as friends, at this location over the course of the past two years.
Atmosphere: The place is pretty nice but nothing spectacular; mediocre even. Its everything you would expect from a small pizza joint, plus maybe a bit more. Lampost Pizza definitely targets more matured palates but still has a kiddy kind of vibe to it, with plenty of video games for the kids to enjoy.
There is definitely a homey kind of vibe to the place. I remember the first time I walked in I felt like a stranger but I soon felt like I was amongst a vast group of friends. The barkeep was friendly and attractive and always willing to give me a free sample of something, though she wasn't very knowledgeable of beer.
Quality: The beer is pretty good but nothing spectacular. I have always enjoyed the Hop Daddy IPA, as well as the Trippel Dipple.
Service: The barkeeps during all of my visits don't really seem to pay much attention to the customers, though they always seem to keep the beer flowing. I just wish the bartenders would make a little more small talk here and there, I really enjoy what they have to say. The food always seems to be piping hot and the beer ice cold so I don't have much to complain about here.
Selection: Main Street Brew Pub has a good selection of beer and food, so come hungry. The place has a nice selection of their own concoctions, as well as some popular macros. Its pretty easy to please everyone here, regardless of what their tastes may be. The place mainly serves pizza, so don't expect a whole lot of variety other than pizza, salad, and pasta.
Food: The food is pretty great, without a doubt. I highly recommend anything vegetarian or supreme. I really liked that they had reasonably individual pizzas, which were mighty tasty.

This is pretty much my local brewery hang out since there really are none in the IE. Their beers are good (not amazing but pretty good) and i guess he has wone some awards for them as well.
It has a good local atmosphere in the bar but too many kids running around if you go out to the Lamppost Pizza area (kids sports banquets going on) so stay in the brewery.
I love the milk stout and the others are good as well. The pizza is awesome and you can order it fromthe bar so you dont have to go out and battle with the kids.
I will continue to go here for my local brewery when i want to get away from the typical yard house offerings...

visited lamppost a couple times over the past 3 weeks. on my first visit they did not bishops tipple tripple available. i was told it would be ready in two weeks and it was available on my second return.
although i live not to far from lamppost and corona in general, i never really venture east much from my home. well, i must say i glad i did!
lamppost kinda reminds me of my high school hang out pizza joint but, with a brewery. inside is pretty much no-frills. you walk in and order at the cashier, take your number and grab a seat. no fancy plates or silverware. you grab your own paper plates, napkins, and plastic, maybe a cheese and crushed pepper container and you are good to go. you get your drinks/beer at a beverage counter and as you wait for your pizza, they will provide you a big bowl of popcorn for free (hint: i did not know of this initially and you have to ask for it. the first bowl is free).
the place has a few coin-op video games and mix of tvs. for the adults, there is even an interactive gaming device you pick up at the beverage counter and a few tvs have either poker style games or triva games which you can play along.
i found the staff very nice and friendly. when asking about the various brews, they offered me to sample some first. i actually really enjoyed their pizza. if you love meat, go for the "linebacker!" i thought their pizza was much better than oggi's and bj's. in fact, when craving basic pizza, lamppost will now be the primary "go to" spot for my family.
now, the good stuff .... beer! i was very impressed with the brews i tried. i had the following beers on my two visits:
hop daddy ipa
bishops tipple tripple
precison pale ale
of everything listed above, my favorites are the biships tripple tripple and hop daddy ipa. the katrina wit probably comes in a good third for me. most brews were poured at the beverage counter but, the tipple tripple they sent me down to the bar to get. i will say this ... the tipple tripple can trip you up. this is a very strong brew. i could only drink one but, i enjoyed it! all in all, for me i found their brews more tasty than bj's.
i asked about growler fills and they sell their own growlers for $5.00 and the size is shy of a pitcher. fill ups are something like $11 and some change. seems pretty reasonable for growler fills although personally, i've never got one or owned one. but, they only fill their own growlers.
so, if you want pizza and beer only, this is the place. this is what makes lamppost. very down to earth with a non-corporate vibe. it's the kind of place where you'll see a local kids sport team fill up after a game.
also, if following a gps device, mine was wrong. when going east on the 91 and making that exit on main street you want to make a left on to main street (not a right). after you drive over an overpass you'll see lamppost on the left.
enjoy and cheers!
